46 years ago today, 'The hottest band in the land.. Kiss Alive!' is here


It was the beginning of everything Kiss. The beginning of the Kiss Army, of the legend of Cobo Hall, of the beginning of my love for Kiss! The album never left my turntable for an entire school year. Sure, a lot of those songs had been released before but never did they sound so good coming from that stage in Detroit. The album 'Kiss Alive!' was what according to Gene Simmons saved the band from bankruptcy and turned kids all over the world into makeup wearing Kiss fanatics. Yes, I know the real story of the album, how much of it was recreated in a studio. In my little rock and roll heart, it's still the concert I was too young to go to but listened to everyday in my bedroom. "Kiss!" https://loudwire.com/kiss-alive-album-anniversary/
