@Q37: PEOPLE WHO CONTRIBUTED TO THIS DOCUMENT

Answers:


@Q1: WHO/WHAT IS KISS?


	KISS is a legendary Rock/Heavy Metal band formed in New York
	City in early 1973. The original band line-up was Gene Simmons
	on Bass/Vocals, Paul Stanley on Rhythm Guitar/Vocals, Peter
	Criss on Drums/Vocals and Ace Frehley on Lead Guitar/Vocals.
	One of the most distinctive features in the early days of KISS,
	was the bizarre makeup and costumes its members wore (from 1973
	to 1983).

	The first KISS record, simply titled `Kiss' was released on
	18th February, 1974. The band has since released 25 more albums.

	Throughout its 20-year history, KISS has undegone several line-up
	changes, starting with the departure of drummer Peter Criss in
	1980. His replacement was Eric Carr, who stayed with the band until
	his tragic death from cancer in November, 1991. Ace Frehley left in
	1982 and a string of replacements followed: Vinnie Vincent (1982-1984),
	Mark St. John (1984), and Bruce Kulick (1984-Present). Drummer
	Eric Singer joined the band in 1991.


@Q2:  WHAT IS THE KISSARMY MAILING LIST AND HOW DO I USE IT?


	The KISSARMY mailing list  was created to 
	provide a forum for fans of the rock group KISS. It  is  currently 
	unmoderated and open to posts  from  anybody.   The list exists in 
	both a digest and a non-digest format.  The main list is KISSARMY
	and the digest is KISSARMY-Digest. To subscribe, send  a command  
	like  the  following in the body of a mail message to

     :

		SUBSCRIBE KISSARMY "Your real name here"

	For example:

		SUBSCRIBE KISSARMY "Gene Simmons"

	To receive the daily digest of posts to the KISSARMY list, replace 
	KISSARMY with KISSARMY-Digest.

	A number of resources are available from this server as well: FAQs
	(like the one you are reading), discographies, lyrics, pictures, etc.
	For instructions on how to access these send the commands  HELP  and  
	DIR on separate lines in the body of a mail message to 

     .

	Archives of KISSARMY postings are available from 
	. Each archive is named KISSARMY.yyyy-mm, 
	where "yyyy" is the current year and  "mm"  is  the  month.   To  
	retrieve all archives, send a  mail message containing the command 
	SEND KISSARMY to  
	
     .   

	To retrieve  the  archive for a particular month, specify the proper 
	file name in the SEND command.  For example, to retrieve  the  
	archives  for  January 1992, the command would be:

        	SEND KISSARMY.1992-01

@Q3:  I AM NEW TO KISS. WHAT DO YOU RECOMMEND I BUY FIRST?


	ALBUMS:

     a) Greatest Hits compilations are always a good place to start, as
	they concentrate on the band's most popular songs. "Smashes, Thrashes
 	And Hits" covers most of their history; from 1974 to 1985 (1974-1987 
        on the European version). It also contains two new 1988 tracks.
	"Double Platinum" a double album, contains the best songs from their 
	first six albums, plus a 1978 version of their classic "Strutter". 
	This one is highly recommended for getting hold of the best of their 
	early material. "Kiss Killers" is another good one to get. It covers 
	their very best from 1974 to 1981 including the 1979 top-10 hit "I 
	Was Made For Lovin' You", as well as four brand new tracks. 
	Unfortunately,  "Kiss Killers" is only available in the US as an 
	import, so it may be hard to find and a bit more expensive than 
	other records.

     b) Live albums are also a good source of `best' songs. "Alive!" is
	definetely the one to go for here. This was the record that first
	put KISS on the map, and it's still one of their greatest. After
	"Alive!" you can  get "Alive II", a live recording from Los Angeles
        1977 containing songs from their next three studio albums after 
	"Alive!" plus five new studio cuts. "Alive III" is the band's
	most recent album, and it  covers songs from almost every one of their
	earlier albums. This one you can buy after you get "Alive II".

     c) Studio albums. After you've got one of the greatest hits or the live
	albums, you may want to think about getting some of their best
	studio works. Recommendation of these  is a rather difficult task,
	but I'll try none the less. Keep in mind this is only this author's
	opinion; you will get different ones from everyone you ask. Here it
	goes: Start with "Destroyer"; this is often called KISS' best album. 
	You can't go wrong with this one. "Creatures Of The Night" and 
	"Revenge" are some of their heaviest (and best). The first three 
	albums "Kiss", "Hotter Than Hell" and "Dressed To Kill" include their
	best and most often heard songs. A favourite amongst KISS fanatics is 
	1981's concept album "Music From The Elder", the soundtrack to a movie
	that never got made. It features some of the finest music KISS has 
	ever put on record and some of their best playing too. Beware though, 
	this is NOT typical KISS by any means!. Ace Frehley's solo record is 
	another great album no KISS fan should be without.

	VIDEOS:

     a) Two home videos document the history of the band, "Exposed" and
	"Extreme Close Up". Both include lots of early concert footage,
	music videos and interviews. The best bet is probably "Extreme
	Close Up", as it covers a lot more and includes more videos. Also,
	lots of "unrehearsed" candid moments...

     b) Concert videos. 1984's "Animalize Live Uncensored" is the one to
	buy first. Filmed at Detroit's huge Cobo Hall, it features an
	excellent concert from the group's 1984 tour. "Konfidential"
	documents the band's 1992 Revenge Tour. It includes many of the
	songs found on the "Alive III" album, as well as a good number
	of early makeup performances.

	MOVIES:

     a) There's only one KISS movie, "KISS Meets The Phantom Of The Park".
	It is currently available on video at a very good price. No need
	to get it, unless you're a hard-core fan who must have absolutely
	everything related to KISS.
	[Note: There is another version of this movie, released theatrically
	outside the U.S. in 1979 called "KISS In Attack Of The Phantom".
	It is not available on video commercially though.]


@Q4: IS THERE A KISS DISCOGRAPHY AVAILABLE ONLINE?


	Sure there is. It is part 3 of this document. It is also available via
	gopher at  (go to #3, #11, #1 and then #3); via WWW at
	; anonymous ftp from 
	the music archives at  or , under the 
	/pub/music/artists/k/kiss/discog directory. This a very complete 
	discography listing all of KISS' albums and singles, as well as lots 
	of KISS-related albums, such ex-members efforts, tribute (cover) 
	albums, etc. You are very much	encouraged to check it out.


@Q5:  WHERE CAN I GET THE LYRICS TO THEIR SONGS?


     a) Via email:

	Send any of the following commands in the *body* of a mail message to
	KISSserv@WKUVX1.WKU.EDU:

	HELP		!Gets a help message
	DIR		!Get listing of all files available
	DIR LYRICS	!Get listing of all lyrics files available
	SEND xxxx	!Send a "package", for example, SEND LYRICS sends
			 all lyrics
	SEND LYRICS.xxx	!Send lyrics for a particular album

     b) Via Anonymous FTP:

	FTP to cs.uwp.edu (or ftp.uwp.edu). The lyrics should be under the
	/pub/music/artists/k/kiss/lyrics directory.

     c) Via WWW:

	Point your Mosaic or Chimera client to URC 
	http://www.galcit.caltech.edu/~aure/strwys.html

     d) Via Gopher:

	Gopher to gopher.wku.edu and follow the following path: #3, #11,
	and #7. There you'll see a list of all the band's albums. Go to any
	entry you wish.
	

@Q6: ARE THERE ANY KISS BOOTLEGS?


	Hundreds. KISS fans are very lucky in that respect. Everything from
	early unreleased work to live concerts from every tour. Please refer
	to part 4 of this document for list of KISS bootlegs.


@Q7: WHERE CAN I GET THESE COOL BOOTLEGS??


	This is a little tricky. You might want to try small independent 
	record shops (don't even bother with the big chains), or collector's
	magazines such as Goldmine, Discovery, or Record Collector in the
	UK. They usually have a pretty good inventory. Also, record 
	conventions are an excellent place to find these. But, always keep 
	in mind BOOTLEGS ARE ILLEGAL, so be careful. And since very little 
	quality control is enforced by these bootleg houses, watch out for 
	poor sounding discs, mislabeled covers and plain rip-offs.
	Another good way is by trading with other KISS fans. The KISSARMY
	mailing list is an excellent place for this.


@Q8: ARE THERE ANY UNRELEASED KISS SONGS?


	Yes. Here's a list of what's known.


	1) GIVE IT TO YOU EASY: Possibly an outtake from the "Kiss" album
				recording sessions, October 1973. Some
				insist this is a Wicked Lester track, but

@Q16: WHY ARE THERE DIFFERENT US AND JAPANESE VERSIONS OF 'THE ELDER'?


	The Japanese version of the album is actually the version KISS wanted 
	to release back in 1981, but the record company wanted a more 
	commercial album. Hence the songs were moved about, some of the sound 
	effects were deleted, and a new track, "Escape From The Island", was 
	added to the US version.


@Q17: WHY ARE THERE TWO VERSIONS OF CREATURES OF THE NIGHT?

	KISS felt the album didn't recieve the exposure it deserved when it
	was first released in October of 82, so they re-released it on their
	new label Mercury with a new cover and new mixes.


@Q18: WHY WERE SONGS ON CREATURES OF THE NIGHT REMIXED?


	Apparently  Gene Simmons thought the drums on "Creatures Of
	The Night", "I Still Love You" and "War Machine" were a bit too
	heavy. The first two were remixed but "War Machine" was only 'toned-
        down'. For the record, Gene Simmons was the one who originally
	insisted the drums be as loud as they are on the 1982 album. He
	sat down with the engineer at the Power Station studios and worked
	for weeks until that particular thunderous sound was to his liking.


@Q19: WHY IS THE SOUND SO POOR ON SOME KISS CDs?


	It's not a problem confined only to KISS CDs. Back in the mid
	eighties when the CD revolution took place, every record company
	wanted to capitalise on the craze by releasing their artists' whole
	catalogue on CD. This meant, very little care was taken in finding
	the true masters (in many cases LP masters were used), and in
	equalising these masters (carefully) to digital standards. Only
	now have record companies realised their mistake and the
	unsatisfaction on the part of the public and begun re-releasing
	better sounding versions of early CDs. KISS' catalogue may not be
	too far off in the future (hopefully). In fact, early mistakes have
	been fixed in recently released CDs, so that's a hopeful sign.
	True state-of-the-art audiophile masters of KISS' albums exist,
	but have not yet been relased.


@Q20: WHAT'S THAT SIGN ON 'HOTTER THAN HELL' AND 'CRAZY NIGHTS'?


	That's the Japanese character for "strength", "power", etc. It's 
	called "Chikara" in Japanese. As to why the band keeps on using it
	over and over ... we don't know.

@Q22: WHICH KISS ALBUM/SINGLE HAS BEEN THE MOST SUCCESFUL FOR KISS?


	"Beth" which hit #7 in 1976 and "I Was Made For Lovin' You" were
	certified gold single by the RIAA in the seventies. Since then,
	no other KISS single has attained the same status although "Forever"
	came close in 1990; it charted #8 in January of that year. KISS' 
	biggest selling album to date remains "Alive!" (#9), released in 1975.
	It has sold something in the neighbourhood of 9 million copies.


@Q23: HOW MANY ALBUMS HAS KISS SOLD?


	Last time these figures were released (1987), KISS' worldwide sales
	catalogue stood at 70 million records.


@Q23: WHAT KISS ALBUMS HAVE BEEN CERTIFIED GOLD/PLATINUM?


	Refer to question 20. G stands for Gold, and P for Platinum (duh!).


@Q25: WHEN/WHERE WERE THEY BORN?


	Name		Birthdate		Location
	----		---------		--------
	Gene Simmons	August 25, 1949		Haifa, Israel
	Paul Stanley	January 20, 1952	Queens, NY
	Peter Criss	December 20, 1947	Brooklyn, NY
	Ace Frehley	April 27, 1955		Bronx, NY

	Bruce Kulick	December 12, 1953	Brooklyn, NY
	Eric Singer 	May 12, 1958		Cleveland, OH


@Q26: WHY DID PETER/ACE/VINNIE/MARK LEAVE?


	There are many sides to these stories. Peter apparently left because
	he wasn't happy in the band. Ace says he left because he didn't like
	the musical direction the band was taking (around 1980-82), and he
	was always outvoted by Gene and Paul. Vinnie Vincent was fired, twice,
	due to his ever-growing ego problems. Same with Mark St. John,
	although the official version is that he had to leave because he
	was suffrering from Reiter's Syndrome (a form of Rheumatism).


@Q27: WHAT DID THEY DO BEFORE THEY MEET EACH OTHER/JOINED KISS?


	Gene: Studied at City University of New York,  Sullivan
	      County Community
	      College (Plattskill, NY), and Richmond College (Staten Island)
	      Worked as teacher (6 months)
	      Bodyguard
	      Typist (at Vogue)

	Ace:  Cab Driver
	      Mail man
	      Liquor store clerk.

	Paul: Studied music at New York High School of Music.

	Peter: Played in various Jazz, Soul and Rock bands.

	Eric Carr: Fixed gas ranges.

	Bruce: Worked at a New York City public library.


@Q28: WHAT IS 'WICKED LESTER'?


	Wicked Lester was a band Gene and Paul were in before forming
	KISS. The band's line up was: Simmons-Bass/Vocals, Stanley-Guitar/
	Vocals, Ron Leejack-Lead Guitar, Brooke Ostrander-Keyboards,
	Tony Zarella-Drums, and Steve Coronel-Guitar (at first). The group,
	minus Coronel, recorded an album, produced by Ron Johnsen, for
	Epic Records in October 1972. It was never released, although its 
	cover was later used on another group's (Laughing Dogs, 1979) album.

	c) WHO'S WHO IN KISSTORY?
           ----------------------

	This is a listing of the names that come up most often when talking 
	about KISS.

Aucoin, Bill: Band manager from 1973 to 1980. Helped them get first
              Casablanca contract after attending one of the concerts (11 
	      August, 1973). Formerly producer of "Flipside" TV show.
Benvenga, Michael: Singer for Peter's early band Chelsea. He is thanked on
              the back of his 1978 solo album.
Bogart, Neil: President of Casablanca Records and the person who did the most
              to help KISS become the huge success it did in the early 1970s.
              (He even financed the band's first three tours on his VISA 
              credit card!). Died of cancer in 1982. KISS' Creatures Of The
              Night album was dedicated to his memory.
Bowen, Pamela: Wife of musician Paul Stanley: married 1992 (1 child).
Carr, Eric:   b. Paul Daniel Carrovelo; drummer and singer for KISS, 1980-1991.
              Died of cancer in November 1991.
Child, Desmond: Singer for disco band Rouge. Co-writer of many KISS songs
              including "I Was Made For Lovin' You" and "Heaven's On Fire".
Corbett, Gary: Kiss keyboardist during the Crazy Nights and Hot In The Shade
              tours. Never recorded anything in the studio with the band.
Coronel, Stephen: Original guitarist for Wicked Lester (1972). Co-writer of
              early Gene Simmons songs such as "Goin' Blind" and "She".
Criss, Lydia: First wife of drummer Peter Criss. Now involved with KISS 
	      merchandise at KISS conventions. She's the person for whom "Beth"
	      was written.
Criss, Peter: b. Peter Criscuola; drummer and singer for KISS 1973-1980.
Cusano, Vincent: Aka, Vinnie Vincent. Lead guitarist for KISS 1982-1984.
Delaney, Sean: Roadie for KISS in the early days. Put out the flames in Gene's
              hair when it caught fire. Later hired by Bogart as administrator 
              of security during KISS' tours. Also worked as executive
              producer of Double Platinum as well as Peter Criss' and Gene 
              Simmons' solo albums.
Drago:        Name given by Gene Simmons to assistant engineer Allan Tucker
              while recording first album. When something went wrong in the 
              studio, everyone would yell "Where's Drago?" [see back credits 
              of first album "Kiss"]

              Allan Tucker, now a NYC mastering engineer at Foothill 
              Digital and TuckerSound (tuckersound.com), writes: 

              "I was the assistant engineer to Warren Dewey on Kiss's first 
              album, recorded in Studio A at Bell Sound Studios in Manhattan. 
              And I was christened 'Drago' by Gene Simmons.

              "Among the exciting chores I did was pickup the band's dry 
              cleaning and, most important, Gene's platform shoes. His shoes 
              were kept in repair by one of a chain of shoe repair shops called 
              Drago's Shoe Repair.

              "The first album was created over a fairly long period of time 
              (when record companies like Buddah/Casablanca gave artists serious 
              budgets upfront), and frequently the band wanted to suddenly do a 
              vocal or a percussion overdub. When the senior engineer wasn't 
              around, they searched for me. And, yes, Simmons started calling me 
              Drago and searching all over the studio complex calling 'Where's 
              Drago?'

              "It was to be my first professional recording credit, and Gene 
              Simmons, Kenny Kerner and Richie Wise (album producers) promised 
              me that I'd be listed on the back of the LP jacket. Well, the joke 
              was on me, because when the record came out (and none of us were 
              still at Bell Sound Studios), I read those ever-smaller concentric 
              circles in the lower right corner of the jacket, and there I was. 
              Last possible credit. Fewest possible words. 'Where's Drago?'  
              Thanks Gene."

Some of the variations include the lines "I've got man-sized predicament, and
it bigger that Paul Stanley's" and "Paul Stanley bends over and I forget my

the studio into the song that appeared on Destroyer.

with Beth on the A-side).
*KISS' first charting single wasn't even supposed to be a single at all. Neil

*Quantum Leap did an entire show about a '70s band called King Thunder, in
which all the members wore facial makeup and wore platform shoes and capes. 
From time to time you could see pictures of KISS' first album modified to look
like posters of the show's fictional band.
*On the cover of Dressed To Kill there's two interesting things. One, it is
the only readily available photo of the scar on Gene's right hand, caused by
a guitar string, and two, the two pieces of paper next to Gene's shoes contain
the initials P.C. and D.N. As to what they refer to, use your imagination.
*After the photo session for the Hotter Than Hell album, Paul was so drunk that
Gene had to carry him out and put him in the back of his car. Everyone in the
room was drunk, except Gene.
*Alive III remains as the only album in the KISS catalogue which hasn't been
certified either Gold or Platinum.
*KISS is ranked 4th as groups with most Gold, Platinum and Multiplatinum 
albums. #1 are the Stones, #2 The Beatles, #3 Chicago and then KISS.
*The May 1994 issue of Guitar World magazine listed Ace Frehley at number nine
(9) in their "The 100 Most Important People In Guitar" article. Ace came in
ahead of such heavyweights as Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Keith Richards, Pete
Townshend, and David Gilmour.


	h) ARTICLE: HOW KISS GOT THEIR NAME
           --------------------------------

	Posted to the KISSARMY list by Gary Lee Schmidt on 11 February, 1994.

From _Rock Names_, by Adam Dolgins:

Kiss was formed in New York City in 1972.  Singer and guitarist Paul
Stanley recalls how they got their name in an interview: "We were at the
point where we were already rehearsing  songs, and very clear on what
the band was about and who we were.  That's the point where you have
to come with a name to kind of reflect that.  I was driving my '63
Plymouth Grand Fury on the Long Island Expressway, and the name
suddenly came to me.  I remember thinking to myself, 'God, I know this
is the right name, I hope I don't get any grief from the other guys.'  I told
them I thought the band should be called Kiss and I held my breath,
waiting for some sort of response, and everybody went, 'Yeah, that
sounds pretty good.'  So there you have it."

Q: What inspired you?  Did you hear a song on the radio?
A: "I think Kiss just conjured up so may different images.  It's a word I
felt, no matter where you went in the world, people were going to
recognize it.  It's just a universal word, even where, obviously, they
don't speak the language.  It's also short, and it looks great, and not
much more than that.  It can be a kiss of death, or it can be real soft.
In that way, without having the kind of contrast, it has the same stuff to
me as Led Zeppelin, Iron Butterfly, those kind of things, where it's light
and heavy, or dark and light, but it's all in one word.  Kiss has all those
connotations."

Q: Did you guys ever play under another name?
A: "Never, although, of course, those are stories that look great in print."
Q: What are some of the stories that have gotten back to you guys?  I
remember something about Kids in Satan's Service.
A: "Right.  There was Knights in Satan's Service, or Keep it Simple
Stupid.  Then somebody was saying that we were thinking of calling
ourselves Fuck--it just never happened.  It's kind of an honor and a
compliment to have rumors and myths written and spoken about you,
'cause I guess it means in some way you have some sort of importance.
 But none of those stories are really true."

Q: I think there are more stories about Kiss than most other bands.
A: "And some of the best ones are unknown to the public."

Q: Are you pleased you went with it?
A: "No complaints so far."

	with Paul's band UNCLE JOE.

	Peter Criss: Drums) releases self-titled LP on Decca Records.

	Ocober 21: Gene and Paul begin writing songs together.

	Ron Leejack: Lead Guitar; Brooke Ostrander: Keyboards; Tony Zarella:
	Drums)	enters Electric Lady Studios to record debut album
	with Ron Johnsen producing. After completed, Epic drops the band
	and record is never released; although the cover surfaces from the
	CBS art file (on the Laughing Dogs album) in 1979.

	Lynn Christopher's debut album released on Paramount Records. It
	features Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley on backup vocals.

	April 11: LIPS folds. Peter Criss advertises in Rolling Stone:

	to be stars". Bands skeptically accepts offer on condition of getting

	has since been certified Platinum.

	July 14: Creatures Of The Night restocked with new cover featuring 
	Bruce Kulick. Title track, "I Still Love You" and "War Machine" are
	replaced by newly remixed/remastred versions. Original blue cover LP 
	becomes prized collector's item.

	September 16: Bruce Kulick makes his recording debut (with KISS) on
	Asylum. First single/video "Tears Are Falling" premieres on MTV
	on 27 September.

	November 29: Asylum Tour opens in Little Rock, Arkansas. Show boasts
	largest KISS sign ever, 40' x 20'. Band goes through three stages:
	album cover--quickly scrapped, temporary set made up of previous sets,
	and final stage, all new and state-of-the-art.

	December: KISS asked to play Sun City, South Africa. Band refuses.

1986:	April 11: Asylum Tour wraps up at Meadowlands Arena, NJ. Beginning of
	eventful year for KISS. Plans surface for next album. Rumours abound
	of directional changes, solo projects and other assorted fabrications.
	Meanwhile, KISS Meets The Phantom Of The Park becomes available
	on videocassette.

	May: KISS contributes live version of 'Heaven's On Fire' to the
	various artists LP "Hear 'N' Aid" for heavy metal music's fund-
	raising activities for famine relief.

	Gene Simmons adds Black 'N' Blue to his list of production credits
	which already includes Wendy O. Williams, Keel and of course, the
	famous Van Halen demo.

	Summer: KISS film their second videocassette, Exposed, stuffed with
	interviews, bikini-clad women and plenty of vintage live footage.

	Bruce Kulick records instructional tape for Hot Licks series. Eric
	Carr also propositioned for Hot Licks and begins making plans for a
	1987 videotape and instruction/songwriting guide.

	Autumn: KISS is/isn't in the studio depending upon who you ask. New
	album is/isn't due by year's end. Band is/isn't using outside producer.
	End result: everyone is confused.

	Gene Simmons continues to pursue one of his many outside activities--
	acting. In a case of fiction definitely being stranger than fact,
	Simmons portrays an Arab terrorist who dies a memorable death with
	a grenade in his mouth in "Wanted: Dead Or Alive", starring opposite
	Rutger Hauer. Simmons adds this to a lengthy list of credits, as
	follows. He portrayed the evil Charles Luther in "Runaway", with Magnum
	magnate Tom Selleck. Simmons is killed again, but no before blowing
	Kirstie Alley's brains out with a "Bye, bye baby". His big-screen debut
	had theatres packed with KISS enthusiasts shouting "Yeah Gene!" each
	time he obliterated another character. He did a cameo on the second
	season opener of "Miami Vice" as drug kingpin on yacht full of centre-
	fold type babes (so what's new?).  In "Never Too Young To Die", Simmons
	played Ragnar, a hermaphrodite, and sported a gold corset, stockings,
	and shaved chest. Stole the show from John Stamos and Vanity Sixx.
	As DJ Norman "The Nuke" Tauroy in "Trick Or Treat", a
	don't-blink-or-you'll-miss-him spot is worth the price of admission.
	Tony Fields as Sammi Curr and Ozzy Osbourne as anti-rock evangelist
	are no slouches either!. Gene's last acting appearance was on HBO's
	"The Hitchhiker," opposite Sandra Bernhard in an episode entitled
	"O.D. Feelin'".

	September: Eric Carr gets more than he bargains for when he invites
	English photographer to do a 'private' photo shoot in his bathtub.

	Gene Simmons produces Japanese metal rockers E-Z-O. Foursome sports
	full facial makeup --quelle coincidence!.

	May 18: "Exposed" videocassette released. Ships Gold and hits Platinum
	within a month.

	Those ever-present rumours rear their nasty heads again. This time,
	it's a farewell makeup tour with all former members. Obviously
	bullshit, but a popular rumour just the same.

	June 20: Paul Stanley joins Poison again in Dallas at the Texxas Jam
	for round two of "Strutter". Crowd of 80,000 goes totally nuts.

	fans to be part of the "Crazy Crazy Nights" video, to be shot next

	KISS.

	October: Gene Simmons produces another Black N Blue album and says he
	will launch own record company, "Simmons Records".

	video can pull another 'coup' the way "Reason" had.

	December: 'Star' newspaper comes out with headline "KISS Drummer
	Hits The Skids", claiming Peter Criss was a homeless alcoholic.
	Only problem was the person featured in article was an impostor
	named Chistopher Dickinson. Peter would eventually file suit against 
	the Star and settle for an undisclosed amount. [A lot, one can be 
	sure.]

1990:	February: "Forever" lodges itself at #8 on Billboard's Top 100 singles
	chart. First Top-10 hit for KISS in 14 years!.

	February: Promo compilation "First KISS Last Licks" released.
	Pressing of only 800 (on vinyl) makes it a very rare collector's item.
	Demo versions of "Deuce" and "Strutter" (from June 1973) make their

	Stern's Show". Gene and Howard settle log-time feud. Gene later

	This discography was based on the earlier versions 1.0-1.3 of the
	KISSARMY discographies by Andreas Hjarpne and on a different 
	discography written by Mark Kennedy. The two versions were merged, 
	modified and updated by Alex Carranza.

	Index:

	1) Album ratings: These ratings were taken from the 15 October, 1993
	   issue of Goldmine magazine. Each of the original members rated the
	   albums they worked on. These were combined with the results of
	   a poll of KISSARMY members taken by David Clayton Tyson in February
	   of 1994. The results were averaged and offer a somewhat useful
	   basis for determining how good or bad each album is. Rating goes
	   from 0 stars to worst to 5 stars for best.

	2) RIAA: It states current album sales certification by the Recording
	   Industry Association of America. Gold signifies sales of 500,000
	   units and Platinum sales of 1,000,000. 

	3) Billboard chart peak--pretty self explanatory, really.

	4) Track listing uses the following: "A1" to signify track number 1
	   on side A (or side one). This is used in all albums released prior
	   to 1983, when the first KISS compact disc was released. From then
	   on tracks are listed just as they appear on the CD.

	This discography is divided in the following sections:

		Section One:      KISS ALBUMS
		Section Two:      SINGLES & EPS
		Section Three:    COMPILATIONS & SOUNDTRACKS
		Section Four:     VIDEOS

  KISS were asked to record "Kissin' Time" as a radio promo for radio station
  WSHE in FT. Lauderdale, Florida, (which was running a kissing contest at
  the time). Track was added to the album by Neil Bogart against the band's
  wishes. Early 1980s PolyGram re-issues replace studio version of "Nothin' 
  To Lose" with live one from ALIVE! (007).

136: TOMMORROW SHOW, TOM SNYDER INTERVIEW, HALLOWEEN 1979
     ----------------------------------------------------

Comments: This interview was released legit on a video series called
          "The Interview Sessions". However the quality was awful and
          it was edited. This version is GREAT quality and unedited.
          Ace is very drunk, and it is a very funny interview.
          Probably the best. At one point the interviewer calls Gene the
          bass (as in fish) player and later when he calls Ace the guitar
          player, Ace says, "No, I'm the trout player."
