Top 10 KISSTORY Moments of 2014

It has been another great year in KISSTORY. A great tour, induction to the Rock Hall Of Fame. A New Album from a former member. And, much more. Over the last 365 days, KISS fans have had fun and have been proud of what the band had done this year. So, lets get the list going.

10) Paul Stanley releases new book:
The last of the original KISS members to release his biography, Paul Stanley releases FACE THE MUSIC: A LIFE EXPOSED.

9) KISS appear in Thanksgiving Day Parade:
Many band and artists appear on sponsored floats to perform on the Macy's Thanks Giving Day Parade, but only KISS has their OWN float to rock the parade. The only down side was the poor NBC coverage of the performance.

8) Dressed to Kill suits for KISS Kruise Performances:
KISS concerts for the KISS Kruise IV feature features the band in a 2014 version of the DRESSED TO KILL suits, designed by John Varvatos, instead of the usual on stage costumes.

7) KISS Perform at Dodger Stadium for NHL game:
The NHL expands its popular outdoor games to LA and Dodger Stadium and what better band than KISS to rock the crowd and the TV Audiences.

6) KISS Las Vegas Residency performances:
After the US Summer tour, KISS books nine dates in November, at The Joint at the Hard Rock Casino, in Las Vegas. The stage is completely different than the current Spider design.

5) KISS/Def Leppard US Tour:
KISS partner with another great band for a double-headline tour and rock to many sold-out performances across the States. Although I didn't have great tickets for the Indy show, I did get to see the Ice Bucket Challenge, live!

4) THE LA KISS kickoff first season in AFL:
Paul and Gene are partners in the new Arena Football League team, THE LA KISS, which played its first season in 2014. The team won their first ever game, against the San Antonio Talons. The franchise is doing new things to attract fans to the league.

3) New Ace Frehley solo album released:
KISS fans had new music from Ace Frehley, with the release of his new album, SPACE INVADER. The album charts in the #9 position, the best ever by KISS member solo album.

2) KISS Inducted in the Rock Hall Of Fame:
After 15 years, KISS finally makes the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame. The band did not perform and only the original four members are inducted. All the controversy, and my personal distain for how the RRHOF actually works, keep me from putting this as #1 for the year. It could have/should have been a bigger event for KISS fans.

1) KISS "androids" featured in multiple Android commercials:
Google/Android is all out on their new ad campaign "Bet Together. Not The Same" features KISS appearances in two separate commercials. One has "androidified" Paul and Ace characters through a rockin spot that features the diversity of Android. From those who use it to the devices. The second commercial stars all four KISS characters as a man has his phone virtually destroyed, ending with a Gene Simmons Axing of the phone, all with ROCK & ROLL ALL NITE as the soundtrack. This is no small campaign as the commercials have aired on some of the biggest TV programs this fall.

  1. My group of friends enjoys eating and trying lesser known beers, or the amazing cocktails all the time. This is the best gallery space for rent NYC I know with the most perfect environment. It has become my favorite venue over the last year.
