    You guys should pull the music from these before Gene does. My friend got the box set which has these along with meeting Gene and had to sign a document saying he wouldn't share them. Obviously no way knowing who put these up but Gene will not be happy they are released so likely will shut it down.

    Good stuff and glad you guys can get a listen.

    You're right, they'll probably be taken down fast!

    I for one would be pissed if I paid money for The Vault and some jagoff started ripping the tunes to YT.

    Nah they wonít be taken down theyíve been up for months. Thereís a couple other places Iíve heard them on YouTube too. Iím pretty sure they were released on some Kiss thing anyway.

    Those songs still suck, even Van Halen couldnít save them.

    Itís been years since Iíve been able to put down Kiss. I missed it.

    You do realize everything is ripped to YouTube? You must be pretty mad then because every song you probably paid for is on there.

    Of course, I do.

    But when itís a very Limited Edition box set, it does suck for those who shelled out money for the rare unreleased material.

    It wasnít a copy of Destroyer. Most of this material came directly from Simmonsí collection, I believe.

    Yes, but Eddie sounds good!

    I have never been a KISS fan and as much as I love Eddie and Alex, it sounds like Gene coached them on exactly what he wanted and took the VH right out of the brothers. If it was not said so and this was played for me without any prior knowledge, I would have no clue that this was Alex on drums. He's one of the most identifiable drummers on the planet.

    Agreed. There is nothing on these tracks to suggest that is Alex. Not the sound or the lines being played. I imagine he just played exactly what Gene told him to.

    Who was it on here that argued to the death that KISS was better than The Beatles?
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!
