KISS Las Vegas Residency

By Helen Bach | July 21, 2014

So how perfect is it that these cats are going to be parking their codpieces at that early bird buffet in Las Vegas? Yup, get the O2 tank and Metamucil cuz The Hard Rock Cafe music hall The Joint is keeping the guys for a 9 show residency. Is it a residency if its that limited?

When All Else Fails KISS To The Rescue!

By Helen Bach | July 16, 2014

As for Gene…, “I certainly see him as a brother, although we don’t always agree on how to treat your brother. At the end of the day, I know he will be there for me and me for him.” However, Stanley also had some issues with Simmons at points in KISS’ career

Gene Simmons Golden Shower of Hits

By Helen Bach | June 30, 2014

Look none of us are getting any younger, I get it. And dudes that whole bladder control thing can be a slap in the pride but the fact of the matter is- when did it become ok to piss on the stage? Well GG Alin had no issue but Gene Simmons?

Lou Reed Lou Reed – Luke Haines – This is the guy behind Black Box Recorder and it is sizzled and smart blues smoothie tribute song which seems to really not have that much to do with Lou but who can complain? – B+

Paul Stanley And The Overnight Success

By Helen Bach | May 12, 2014

You have had your fill of Gene Simmons (or so it seems) so the Starman is up to bat to make sure that KISS never fades away and is perpetually in the media

KISS and The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Via Ace Frehley

By Helen Bach | April 20, 2014

There is nothing less macho than being that vague. Ace having an opinion is fabulous. Ace not getting to the point is lame. But this is over now. You wont hear anything more from KISS for a very long time.

"The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Induction Ceremony" At Barclay Center,Thursday, April 10th, 2014, Reviewed

By Iman Lababedi | April 11, 2014

But like Jett spit out on “Smells Like Teen Spirit” rock is a denial and the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame is all about an admittance. It really is a squalid rabid horrible dingy thing. It really adds up to something that is nothing.

KISS and Def Leppard, the Spandex and Fiber Tour

By Helen Bach | March 20, 2014

“Pour Some Sugar On Me” will only flare up the diabetes so use caution. The tour skips New York City instead focusing on the ‘burbs and with good reason- the target market here is the kids of the 80’s your gear head greaser and prom queen of days gone by

Paul Stanley of KISS, Sassy Beast

By Helen Bach | March 17, 2014

With so much baggage a bunch of old dudes can not (and should not!) pull it together for a last hurrah. I admire them for this. There is nothing more horrible than old men pretending to be what they were decades earlier.

Hall Of fame? Only If Cat Stevens Is There

By Iman Lababedi | March 2, 2014

There is somebody I really wanna see. Cat Stevens. And it is because of Stevens I went out of my way to score a ticket. But before we discuss him, let’s talk about everybody else.

Rejoice! Paul Stanley Calls Out The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

By Helen Bach | February 18, 2014

I have to admire him for being so outspoken and acknowledging the validation this will give the fans. That is an angle I had not thought of before. “doing it for the fans” always seems such a lame comment until now. I get it.

Classic Rock 2007, "How Gene Simmons Stole Christmas"

By Helen Bach | December 24, 2013

I’m amazed at how much I write about KISS and Gene Simmons. I’m not a fan and I think it may be that I am really stunned at how all these years after their career peaked they have remained so much in the spotlight and oddly relevant. I also have never cut and paste an entire piece before and I aint gonna lie- I feel sorta lazy for doing so.

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 2014 Fan Vote Winner? KISS

By Helen Bach | December 18, 2013

This year the tally put makeup legends KISS on the top of the heap. I’m not surprised but I’m also not overwhelmed with joy- since I have very little respect for the award itself. Although I will pause to say that the museum in Cleveland is a nifty idea I for those so inclined to look at Elton Johns car keys.

Ace Frehley Speaks, And He's Grumpy

By Helen Bach | November 9, 2013

“He took the safe route – he never got loaded, he never partied. I took the same route Elvis took, and Hendrix, and Keith Richards and Jim Morrison… it’s endless. I have all this life experience and thank God I can live to talk about it.”
