I love all the old stuff up to and including Music From The Elder. I saw them in Milwaukee, on the Destroyer tour and from the front row for Dynasty. This was the very last show of the original line-up before Peter left the band the first time... The Sports Arena in Toledo, OH.  A long, cold day outside in December to among the very first to get into the venue for a true "general admission" show.  I only remember the moment that Gene rose up from the stage floor and started his antics and using up the one roll of 110 "Instamatic" film I had with me in less than two songs (except for remembering to save one shot to catch Gene's fire breathing, which I did pretty well).  At the end of the show, Paul place his destroyed guitar into my hands but I was immediately mobbed and the thing got ripped from my grasp.  I did end up with one of Gene's picks from the night but that has long since been lost. I wish I knew then how important music and the memorabilia would end up later in my life and I would have fought harder to keep Paul's guitar and would never have let Gene's pick and the ticket stuff from that night vaporize.  I do still have the bootleg T-shirt that I bought out in the parking lot after the show... it has Rock 'n' Roll Over cover art on a yellow-sleeved T that is now thread-bare but still fun to show off to anybody who knows the good old days of the band... Good times... Rock ON!

OK, so here's the question I would have ask when I was 12 years old... Who is (was) your favourite member of KISS growing up?
When I was a kid it was always Gene!  Funny enough though I got the Ace 12 inch doll for Christmas one year.  I still have him.  All of his clothes are intact.  No paint rub on the nose.  The leg was broken but I was able to remove the naked body from the suit and crazy glue it.  Good as new!  Today it's ACE BABY!

My Dad played the guitar, and I always always admired him ... But it was Ace that made me want to be cool,  and pick up a Les Paul. and play those outer space licks

Earl, I love Peter's drums on the early stuff .. He was reckless and never played the same thing twice

Starting at about the 5:04 mark here, Peter's playing is awesome, and why I love him so much

( and Gene totally fuckks up the first line lol )

Lucas!  I love your passion and fire for one of the most underrated drummers ever!  Even Paul hates him! He was perfect for the band back in "the day."  Great footage buddy!  I agree with you about Peter and his "recklessness."  Perfect for the greatest American Rock And Roll Band on the planet!

From wiki....   He was an avid art student and a swing aficionado. [4] While playing with bandleader Joey Greco, Criss ended up studying under his idol, Gene Krupa, at the Metropole Club in New York.[5] This turned into an active musical career as he went on to play jazz and rock with a number of bands in New York and New Jersey throughout the 1960s
