    Just today, KISS appeared on the Australian talk show the Rove to plug their upcoming show with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra this Friday (the 28th).

    KISS, decked out in their new/old Alive! costumes, were interviewed and then played a small acoustic set with some members from the orchestra.

    KISS, are of course without Ace Frehley, who declined to be a part of the show. His replacement is "Fake Frehley" himself, Tommy Thayer.

    Check out this pic. Now, why couldn't KISS get a guy who even remotely looks like Ace because this clown certainly doesn't.

    Its hilarious. What a joke this Thayer guy is, posing as Ace.

    Looks like he's about 1/100 of Ace's weight too.

    Another funny thing is that all the merchandise being marketed and sold for this KISS Symphony show (poster and t-shirts) feature the REAL Ace on them!

    I realize that Ace has pretty much told Gene and Paul to F-off, but I just don't understand why they resort to things like this.

    I just thought seeing this guy dressed up as Ace was hilarious.

    Even more funny is that Tommy Thayer was actually Ace in a KISS Tribute band! This was in addition to being a roadie for KISS in the early 90s and a guitar tech for them.

    What in the world is up with Peter's hair?



    Ever since this reunion show / Psycho Circus tour, he's been jacking around with his makeup (look at the outline of his eye pattern...what's up with this weird trapezoid design? It was never that angular in the 70's. [img]graemlins/irked.gif[/img] ) and he's also been poofing up the coif with a bunch of Aqua Net. Maybe he's trying to become a "clown" instead of a "cat".

    To quote Rodney Dangerfield from "Caddyshack"...

    "Whoa...you must have been something before electricity!"

    Pete is the 4th joke in that band. [img]graemlins/irked.gif[/img]

    I DO like the Alive era costumes, though.

    Some of you guys should lighten up......what are they supposed to do if Ace doesn't want to play, (or can't) - just forget the whole thing?
    Maybe this dude is a better player than Ace, who really gives a flying fuck??

    I've seen 'em twice, once in 1980 (with Eric Carr on drums) and again in '96. Would I go see 'em again? FUCK YEAH!!!!!

    There's only two guys ya can't replace IMO, and y'all know who they are........

    Tommy Thayer is the first Oregon native to be a member of KISS. It's funny...I went to 6 KISS shows in 2000 and routinely saw Tommy hanging out in the crowd, etc. before the show and hardly anyone knew who he was. Is he wearing a wig this time around???

    Okay, I would agree with you to some degree.

    Ace is not there because he chose not to be. He's pissed because Paul and Gene don't tell him ahead of time what's going on until a press conference is announced and they need to fly in Ace for it. I say to Ace, hey, suck it up. Get your drunken ass back out there, put the makeup on and do the gigs. But he's got his reasons, so he isn't there.

    I understand that Paul and Gene have a desire to continue KISS as the 'original' look. They know they can't make a coin going back to an unmasked KISS.
    I just think this guy looks like a goof in Ace's makeup. They could've gotten someone who looked more closely to Ace.
    I've heard that this Tommy guy can play Ace's solos and riffs to a T. Yeah, okay, but he's still not Ace.

    Apparently, according to recent reviews, the band sounded good playing the acoustic set.

    Musically, they may be great with Thayer playing. Its just that he's up there dressed up as Ace. Its just funny and something I think Gene and Paul could never do here in North America.

    KI$$ is the biggest tribute band in the world. The most pathetic thing is is that with the exception of the fake Ace or Peter, it doesn't matter. It's all about the $$$$!!!!! KI$$ sucks monster elephant c....... I won't say it. Gene $immon$, you blow and you may have a fat bank account but you only have about two years of musical credibility with th KI$$ name! Go the fuck away already! The world doesn't care about The Ninth Anual KI$$ Farewell Tour featuring The Original Space Ace in the KI$$ KOFFIN(only $7500 and it also makes a great fuckin' TENT !!!!)....
