    That’s seven Paul songs. Looks live since Paul’s voice sounds like it’s starting to go on Do You Love Me. It may be that Paul just loses his voice after a few tunes. His voice has been completely shot for a while now. That’s including his speaking voice.

    Guess it was piped in. Paul flubs it on Love Gun at the 2:19 mark.

    This should be good.



    Did NIKKI SIXX Call Out KISS For Allegedly Using Backing Tracks During Live Concerts?

    February 13, 2019



    MÖTLEY CRÜE bassist Nikki Sixx has called out another band for using taped vocals during its live performances after previously deriding other groups for doing the same thing.

    Sixx wrote on Twitter: "Certain band out on the road right now putting other bands DOWN and saying that they are a REAL rock band, no background singers,and other old people cranky comments except his lead vocals are on tape.People in glass houses shouldn't throw rocks. #GetOffMyLawn #WizardOfOz"

    Some fans have speculated that Sixx is referring to KISS, whose lead singer Paul Stanley has been struggling to hit the high notes in many of the band's classic songs for a number of years. As a result, Stanley has been accused of singing to a backing tape on KISS's just-launched "End Of The Road" tour.

    Back in 2015, KISS bassist/vocalist Gene Simmons slammed bands who used backing tapes for not being honest enough to include that fact on their concert tickets.

    Story continues after advertisement
    "I have a problem when you charge $100 to see a live show and the artist uses backing tracks," Simmons said. "It's like the ingredients in food. If the first ingredient on the label is sugar, that's at least honest. It should be on every ticket — you're paying $100, 30 to 50 percent of the show is [on] backing tracks and they'll sing sometimes, sometimes they'll lip synch. At least be honest. It's not about backing tracks, it's about dishonesty.

    "There's nobody with a synthesizer on our stage, there's no samples on the drums, there's nothing," Gene continued. "There's very few bands who do that now — AC/DC, METALLICA, us. I can't even say that about U2 or THE [ROLLING] STONES. There's very few bands who don't use (backing) tracks."

    Sixx has defended CRÜE's use of backing tracks during live concerts, saying, "We've used technology since '87." He said the group employed "sequencers, sub tones, background vox tracks, plus background singers and us. [MÖTLEY CRÜE also taped] stuff we can't tour with, like cello parts in ballads, etc.... We love it and don't hide it. It's a great tool to fill out the sound."

    In a 2014 interview, MÖTLEY CRÜE guitarist Mick Mars admitted that he wasn't comfortable with the fact that his band used pre-recorded backing vocals in its live shows, claiming that he preferred to watch groups whose performances are delivered entirely live.

    "I don't like it," he said. "I think a band like ours… I have to say '60s bands were my favorite — '60s and '70s bands — because they were real, like, three-piece bands or four-piece bands, and they just got up there and kicked it up. Made a mistake? So what? Sounded a little bit empty here or there? So what? It's the bigness and the rawness and the people that developed and wrote the songs and made them and presented them. To me, that's what I really like. I mean, I could put on a MÖTLEY CD and play with it all day long. I don't wanna do that."

    KISS can’t really respond without admitting it, so my guess is they’ll stay quiet. Nikki does have some nerve talking about it though. LMAO

    I would guess that Gene really doesn't feel any different about it than he did in 2015 when he made those comments. It seems like he and Mick Mars share the same sentiment. We certainly haven't heard Gene come out defending it.

    Thumbs up

    We interrupt the continued bashing of KISS’ Sync On The Road tour to bring you another example of KISS giving a fuck. Good job, boys.



    Gene Simmons surprises Idaho’s biggest KISS fan (while he’s working at Arctic Circle) for Feel Good Friday


    EastIdahoNews.com and Ashley Furniture HomeStore are teaming up every week to bring you some good news during Feel Good Friday!

    We want to surprise people in our community with random acts of kindness and leave you feeling good.

    A few weeks ago we posted a story about Leo Wyatt – a 52-year-old who has been in love with KISS since the band’s early roots in the 1970s. Even though Leo has listened to every record the world-famous heavy metal band has produced, he has yet to attend a concert in person.

    Leo was born with Williams Syndrome – a genetic condition that presents medical problems, developmental delays and learning challenges. One interesting characteristic is that individuals with the disorder generally love music – and such is the case for Leo.


    When Leo’s sister, Tonja Wyatt Wood, found out KISS will be performing in Salt Lake City later this year, she was determined to help her brother to see, and hopefully meet, his favorite band on their final tour.

    She started a GoFundMe to purchase tickets and said that any money left over would be donated to the Williams Syndrome Association.


    Our story reached KISS and Gene Simmons asked if we could deliver a special message to Leo while he was working this week at Arctic Circle.

    He and his family thought we were coming to do a follow-up story and they had no idea we were about to give them the surprise of a lifetime! Watch the video below to see what happened.

    say what you want about Gene - he's no nonsense, not always politically correct, whatever - but I'm convinced that he really does have a heart of gold.

    as has been said so many times before, they're the type of guys that really understand that it's all about the fans. Paul & Gene never seem to take that for granted.

    They have their moments of royally fucking shit up too. The Hall Of Fame thing was a fucking fiasco. That was all on Paul too.

    They did, but it was also a sign of loyalty which frankly Ace and Peter battled with over the years
    They didn’t want to just overlook Tommy and Eric, in someway shape or form, both have been dedicated members of Kiss for 25 years

    I agree they could have found s way to do both instead of sniping in the press, but I kind of get what their point was

    Loyalty had nothing to do with it in my opinion. Paul felt the need to justify the current business model by trying to single-handedly destroy their legacy. There was no need for it, it was stupid, and it robbed the fans AND KISS of a very special moment and statement in their home town.

    Dumb

    GENE SIMMONS Responds To ACE FREHLEY's Explosive Remarks

    February 17, 2019



    In a new interview with the Los Angeles Times, Simmons refused to go into detail about Ace's explosive remarks. "I'm not gonna say anything in print other than I love Ace and Peter [Criss, original KISS drummer] and I thank them forever — they're every bit as important as Paul and myself for launching the band," he said. "I'm not going to make any guesses of why the emotions are so volatile, but it's happened before."
