Kiss

KISS bassist/vocalist Gene Simmons has posted a brief review of NINE INCH NAILS' August 10, 2009 concert at Fort Canning Park in Singapore.

Simmons, who was in Singapore on business, wrote in an apparently sarcasm-filled posting on his Facebook page, "Went to see Trent Reznor's [NINE INCH NAILS mainman] band. About 1,000 people attended the outdoor event. On other days (it's a three-day festival), it's LADY GAGA and KEANE. Band was solid. Good lights. Lots of smoke in every song. Couldn't see the band. But, boy, was there a lot of smoke. Terrific drummer, who played in perfect time with the tape loops. Good stuff... I loved it."

Reznor stated in a recent interview that he'd "never want to be Gene Simmons, an old man who puts on makeup to entertain kids, like a clown going to work." [Blabbermouth]

Nine Inch Nails played Webster Hall in NYC last night (8/23). Their next show is Tuesday at Terminal 5. I'm sure Gene will be happy to see them go (sort of, maybe).

Kiss have announced a North American tour...

This incredible show will feature a new stage set, pyro effects that only the "hottest band in the world" could deliver, and all-new costumes. KISS ALIVE 35 North America also marks the first leg of the world's first fan-routed tour - in which more than 10,000 individual cities across Canada and the U.S. mounted their own unique campaigns to bring KISS to their towns.

SONIC BOOM - KISS' highly-anticipated album, and its first new material in 11 years - will be released exclusively at Walmart, Walmart.com and Sam's Club retail locations beginning October 6.
Exclusively at Wal Mart... Rock!

Tickets for shows at MSG & Nassau Coliseum & other shows go on sale Saturday, August 29th at 10:00 AM. There are also about a zillion presales (my favorite is the "Buckcherry Presale"). All dates below...

Is Vinnie Vincent back in the band?? Otherwise I ain't going..

What the hell is their fan club? The Buckcherry Buccaneers?

I'm probably going to check this out. I haven't seen them since Psycho Circus.

Gene is slowly replacing all of the band members with 'actors'. First Ace, then Peter, then Gene and Paul.

Then, when he doesn't even have to go onstage anymore, Gene can pop viagra and lick women who have no self esteem and finally surrender to his anger.

Then we will see if a band built only on hype and no songs anyone wants to play (unless they are courting irony) is worth anything.

Until that point, heeere's Gene!

Are Ace and Peter in the band, or is it two randoms?

Kiss Is So Sucky

this bad is the biggest piece of shit ever. money and merch whores who make mediocre music at best.

Folks judging KISS on musical merit and using words like "sucky" to describe them were definitely born after 1980, and furthermore, have not had their faces melted off by Detroit Rock City.

Posted by Anonymous | August 24, 2009 5:20 PM

Kiss blows, period. Gene Simmons is an ass-whore and always has been. I was born prior to 1980 and they sucked then as much as, if not more than, now. Without the clown makeup these idiots would have been a footnote in the annals of shitty 3 chord rock.

you mean shitty 3 chord douche rock

Fuck this...I was born in 19 fucking 68 and you know what? KISS sucks.

You're all just idiots.

August 24, 2009 5:20 PM : Sorry. Born in 1972. KISS is absolutely terrible. I have thought so since I saw a behind the scenes of one of their shows on the show 3...2...1... Contact. They have always been embarassing.

Twent Wezner is so cool: he did hewoin and lived in Sharon Tate's house where Charlie Manson's acid-crazed hippies killed her and cut out her baby. How gothic cool of Twent Weznor to take loads of smack and live in that house! Let's see Marilyn Manson top that! And now Twent isn't angwy anymore so he takes mega-roids to get some roid rage working before he goes onstage. Twent Wezner is my hero

How could KISS be as cool as Twent Weznor? Gene and Paul who didn't live in Romann Polanski and Sharon Tate's murder house where the Charlie Manson acid hippies killed her and cut out her baby. Twent did and he'd take shitloads of heroin and have fantasies about being Charlie Manson!! All KISS did was write some catchy rock tunes, put on a great show and make some money doing it. Not cool like the great Twent "I wish I was Charlie" Weznor at all!

Born 1963 here ... KISS sucks, always have. What a racket.

Also, open memo to Trent: all rockstars are clowns. Including you.

I'd rather listen to disco that PISS.

Posted by Anonymous | August 25, 2009 12:02 PM

I just confirmed that Ace and Peter are definitely NOT in the band anymore. There are two new random dudes wearing the makeup they used to wear. Fuck that.

You douchebag hipsters..stick with your TV on the Radio and yeah yeah yeahs. No one cares what you think. Kiss rules, Kiss always ruled and Kiss continues to rule. Eric Singer has been playing with Kiss since 1992 and Tommy been in the Kiss posse almost as long, playing on their records since 1998. Kiss has influenced many bands and musicians over the last 20+ years and continues to do so. Now go back to Bedford Avenue and shut the fuck up.

Posted by Anonymous | August 25, 2009 12:33 PM

Whatever man I hate hipsters too but kiss BLOWS. Lamest excuse for a "rock n roll" band.

Actually, BV sucks even more for actually blogging about this - couldn't find this on Yahoo Music or any other music site online we're sure...

I wanna put my log in your fireplace = actual Kiss lyrics.

Posted by Hank | August 27, 2009 5:31 PM

most 20 somethings that hate kiss,hate ALL classic rock artists and most real rockers that hate kiss(older than 20-ish)consider the doobie brothers as fantastic.both attitudes are held by losers..period.
i'll stick with the killers and evanescence and flyleaf and the yeah yeah yeahs,etc..i'd mention 'korn' somewhere here but i've never done so much heroin that i really could enjoy them..groups like korn reminds me of the old grateful dead joke..the auduience left the concert when the drugs ran out.they couldn't take the crappy noise coming from the stage!!
