I lost respect for KISS many many years ago...they are a joke. I feel for Tommy T. and Eric S. who we all know are "hired guns" for this parody of what used to be one of the biggest bands in the world in our generation.
Sure DLR is not what he used to be...but he is still making the best of what he can for his age - Gene Simmons is such a hypocrite, I don't see Gene and Kiss releasing any new albums...the last 2012???
Sure VH's last was 2012 too.....but at least DLR had been productive, artistic wise, releasing singles (whether you like them or not) - he is still being creatively active. And its not his fault that Eddie had been going through what he was going through...
What's GENE been doing? releasing more compilation albums (Best of...Live...expensive box sets that no one can afford)????
DLR - whether you like his personality or his public antics or not...is really trying to "reinvent" himself in some fashion or another.
What GENE doesn't realize - DLR just lost a friend, a brother, and a bandmate...and his career in VH is over. Hell, for all we know - DLR was "trying" to move on in performing again after EVH passed with KISS...but with Gene's BS, always running his mouth just like Sebastian Bach - give the guy some slack....be respectable.
Plus, this whole KISS final frontier, last hoorah, final sunset, last call, finale, tour (or whatever they want to call it)...is just another damn publicity stunt...money grabbing scheme.
I think for a lot of people - they don't give two sh*t's about whether or not KISS is touring for the last time (which will taken them another 3 years)...who cares. Hang it up.
