Band Kiss Navigation menu VideoKiss - I Was Made For Lovin' You
Reminiscent of the band's unfocused late-'70s period, few tracks on Psycho Circus featured all four members playing together most tracks were supplemented with session musicians , as the band seemed more interested in flooding the marketplace with merchandise yet again instead of making the music their top priority.
With rumors running rampant that the Psycho Circus Tour would be their last, the quartet announced in the spring of that they would be launching a U.
But on the eve of a Japanese and Australian tour in early , Peter Criss suddenly left the band once again, supposedly discontent with his salary.
Taking his place was previous Kiss drummer Eric Singer , who in a controversial move for some longtime fans, donned Criss ' cat-man makeup since Simmons and Stanley own both Frehley and Criss ' makeup designs, there was no threat of a lawsuit as the farewell tour continued.
With the band scheduled to call it a day supposedly by late , a mammoth career-encompassing box set was set for later in the year, while the summer saw perhaps the most over-the-top piece of Kiss merchandise yet -- the " Kiss Kasket.
He was promoting his autobiography at the time, which also caused dissent in the Kiss camp because of inflammatory remarks made toward Ace Frehley.
Frehley subsequently declined to appear at an American Bandstand anniversary show; his place was taken by a wig-wearing Tommy Thayer , and Simmons was quick to dismiss the performance as another in a long series of money-oriented decisions.
The band kept touring the globe with no new album in stores, but in they returned to the studio, re-recorded their hits, and released Jigoku-Retsuden aka KISSology or Kiss Klassics the release was initially exclusive to Japan.
In spring of , the band began recording their first studio album in 11 years, and released the results in October with the title Sonic Boom.
In , the band's 20th studio album, Monster , surfaced, rewriting the cowbell-heavy party rock of their '70s heyday and adding some nods to the sinister metal of 's Revenge.
The following year they released a collaborative single with the Japanese idol group Momoiro Clover Z. In , a career-spanning single-disc best-of, Kissworld , was released to coincide with a massive world tour of the same name.

Showcasing a slick, contemporary pop sound, Unmasked released May 20, had the dubious distinction of being the first Kiss album since Dressed to Kill to not achieve platinum sales.
Soon after the album's release, Criss' departure was officially announced. The band auditioned dozens of replacements for Criss in June One of the many who auditioned was Tico Torres who would later be with Bon Jovi.
They finally settled on a little-known drummer-guitarist-pianist-keyboardist-singer from Brooklyn named Paul Charles Caravello born July 12, who adopted the stage name Eric Carr.
His first make-up design was modeled on a hawk, though it was rejected as Stanley felt it looked more like a chicken.
Carr ultimately settled on a "Fox" persona. This was Kiss's only U. The band's tour of Australia and New Zealand, on the other hand, was one of the biggest in its history, as they played to sold-out crowds and received overwhelmingly positive press coverage.
For its next album, the band worked again with producer Ezrin, with whom Kiss had found success on Destroyer. Early press reports indicated that the new album would be a return to the hard rock style that had originally brought the band success.
However, 's Music from "The Elder" was a concept album featuring medieval horns, strings, harps , and synthesizers.
The album was presented as a soundtrack to a film that was never made, making it difficult to follow the storyline. To make matters worse, having received negative feedback following its record company's preview of the album, Kiss altered the record's track sequence in most countries to emphasize potential singles "The Oath" and "A World Without Heroes", which all but guaranteed the inability of listeners to understand the already-muddled storyline.
Once released, fan reaction to The Elder was harsh; it failed to achieve Gold status and peaked at No. The band made only two appearances in support of the new album, both in January One was a performance on the ABC late-night variety program Fridays , while the second was a lip-synced performance that was broadcast via satellite during Italy's Sanremo Music Festival.
Absent from the satellite performance was Frehley, who had become increasingly frustrated with Kiss's new musical direction.
Upset with the band's decision to record Music from "The Elder" , he did not actively participate in the album's creation, providing lead vocals for only one track, "Dark Light".
He did not appear at a special concert at Studio 54 in New York City, leaving Kiss to perform as a trio. He recorded his guitar parts at his home studio in Wilton, Connecticut , and mailed them to Ezrin.
Another source of frustration for Frehley was that with the departure of Criss, and with Carr not being an equal partner in the band, he was often outvoted 2-to-1 on group decisions.
In June , Frehley's departure from the band was negotiated, although he did not officially leave until December, and remained a business partner with Simmons and Stanley until Although Frehley had already decided to leave the band, he was pictured on the covers of 's Killers and Creatures of the Night , although he did not participate in the recording of either album.
Creatures of the Night October 13, was Kiss' heaviest album to date, and although it fared better than Music from "The Elder" , it peaked at only No.
In Frehley's absence, Kiss utilized a number of guitarists for the recording of the album, including Vinnie Vincent born Vincent John Cusano on August 6, Frehley's last appearance with the band until the reunion was in the music video for the single " I Love It Loud ", which was co-written by Vincent.
Frehley also appeared on the cover of the original Creatures of the Night album artwork. When the album was remixed and re-released in with a non-make-up cover and a slightly different song order, to reflect the band's roster change and abandonment of its make-up and costumes, Vincent was again absent from the album cover, as then-current lead guitarist, Bruce Kulick , appeared instead.
Vincent officially replaced Frehley as lead guitarist in December , as the band embarked on its 10th Anniversary Tour. Vincent originally wanted to use his birth name in the band, but this was vetoed by Simmons on the grounds that it sounded "too ethnic".
Specifically, according to Simmons, "it sounded like a fruit vendor". Simmons went on to note that "fairly or unfairly, rock and roll is about image".
Simmons later suggested the name change to "Vinnie Vincent". Vincent started actively pushing to join Kiss as a full member. Despite the misgivings that both Simmons and Stanley harbored about his personality, Vincent was taken into the band.
Stanley designed a character, "The Wiz"   also known as "The Egyptian Warrior",  and make-up centered around an Egyptian ankh , for Vincent.
A persona as "The Ankh Warrior" or similar is not mentioned in the book at all. Vincent's personality did not mesh well with either Stanley or Simmons, and he was dismissed from Kiss at the end of the Creatures tour.
He was quickly reinstated before recording started for Lick It Up because Simmons and Stanley could not find a new lead guitarist on such short notice.
Vincent appeared on the cover of Lick It Up and was credited as the lead guitarist. Personality issues arose once again, and Vincent was fired following the Lick It Up tour, due in part to excessive guitar soloing at a concert in Quebec.
He was replaced by Mark St. John birth name Mark Norton. Vincent's work on Creatures of the Night was not officially recognized until the album was remastered in Before long, Vincent fell out with Simmons and Stanley for a third time, and they again severed their musical ties.
Persistent rumors circulated for years among Kiss fans regarding the true reason for Vincent's dismissals from Kiss, with at least one band member refusing to comment except to say that legally it was not up for discussion.
Simmons stated in an interview several years later that Vincent's firing was for "unethical behavior", but he did not elaborate:.
I named Vincent Cusano, 'Vinnie Vincent'. That's the only gift he's allowed. It's interesting that Vinnie hasn't changed his name back to Vinnie Cusano.
Vinnie, for the record, was fired for unethical behavior, not because of lack of talent. The guy is very talented.
He was unethical. He was fired. Sensing it was time for a change, Kiss made the decision to abandon its trademark make-up and costumes. The band officially appeared in public without make-up for the first time since its very early days on a September 18, , appearance on MTV, which coincided with the release of Lick It Up.
Lick It Up became Kiss' first Gold record in three years, but the tour was even more sparsely attended than the previous one.
Vincent did not get along with Simmons and Stanley, and he left the band at the conclusion of the tour in March Vincent's replacement was Mark St.
John , a session player and guitar tutor. With St. John, Kiss released the album Animalize on September 13, Animalize followed the success of Lick It Up , and due in part to consistent MTV play for the " Heaven's on Fire " video, Animalize was the band's best-selling record in America during the decade, with over two million albums sold.
With the success of the album and subsequent tour, Kiss had recaptured some of its earlier glory though not to the level of its s heyday.
John, however, came down with reactive arthritis during tour rehearsals, and only performed at a handful of shows before being dismissed from the band in December The band hired Bruce Kulick to replace St.
Kulick had previously filled in for St. John during the first two months of the Animalize tour. Kulick was Kiss' fourth lead guitarist in less than three years, but he stayed with the band for 12 years.
One of the first concerts Kulick played as an official member of the band was at Detroit, Michigan's Cobo Hall.
This was later released as the band's first home video, Animalize Live Uncensored. Crazy Nights , in particular, was one of Kiss' most successful albums overseas.
The single " Crazy Crazy Nights " reached No. Kiss ended the decade with the October release Hot in the Shade. Although the album failed to achieve platinum status, it spawned the hit ballad " Forever ", co-written by Michael Bolton.
Peaking at No. During this time, Kiss struggled with its identity and fan base. Simmons, arguably the driving force in Kiss during the s, became less involved with the group in the s as he pursued outside interests, most notably a film career.
Stanley took a more prominent role as a result. In February , the band decided to once again enlist Ezrin to produce its next album. Before recording could begin in earnest, however, tragedy struck.
In March , it was discovered that Carr had a tumor on his heart. It was successfully removed the following month, but more tumors were soon discovered in his lungs.
Carr received chemotherapy and was pronounced cancer-free in July. However, in September he suffered the first of two cerebral hemorrhages.
He died on November 24, , at the age of Singer had played with Paul Stanley previously, as part of Stanley's backing band during a solo tour.
Kiss released Revenge on May 19, It featured a leaner, harder-edged sound, as indicated by the first single, " Unholy ". In a surprise move, Kiss enlisted Vincent to help with songwriting duties.
The album debuted in the Top 10 and went Gold. Kiss embarked on a brief club tour of the U. Four days later, Kiss were inducted into Hollywood's RockWalk.
During this period, Kiss nostalgia started to pick up steam. June saw the release of Kiss My Ass: Classic Kiss Regrooved , a compilation album featuring popular artists of the era putting their own spin on Kiss songs.
In , the group released the book Kisstory , a page, 9 pounds 4. That same year, the band embarked on a unique and well-received Worldwide Kiss Convention Tour.
The conventions were all-day events, featuring displays of vintage Kiss stage outfits, instruments and memorabilia; performances by Kiss cover bands; and dealers selling Kiss merchandise from every stage of the band's career.
Kiss appeared live at the conventions, conducted question and answer sessions, signed autographs, and performed a two-hour acoustic set composed mostly of spontaneous fan requests.
On the first U. It was the first time Criss had performed publicly with the band in nearly 16 years. The band contacted Criss and Frehley and invited them to participate in the event.
In the weeks following the Unplugged concert, however, the band with Kulick and Singer , returned to the studio for the first time in three years to record a follow-up to Revenge.
Carnival of Souls: The Final Sessions was completed in February , but its release was delayed for almost two years.
Bootleg copies of the album circulated widely among fans. These efforts culminated with a public event as dramatic as any the band had staged since its unmasking on MTV.
With the following statements, Tupac Shakur introduced the original Kiss lineup, in full makeup and Love Gun -era stage outfits, to a rousing ovation at the 38th Annual Grammy Awards : .
You know how the Grammys used to be, all straight-looking folks with suits. Everybody looking tired. No surprises. We tired of that. We need something different, something new, we need to shock the people On April 20, nearly 40, tickets for the tour's first show sold out in 47 minutes.
The first public concert featuring the newly reunited Kiss was an hour-long warm-up show on June 15 for the annual KROQ Weenie Roast in Irvine, California , during which the band nearly ignited the stage of the Irvine Meadows Amphitheater.
There were many many nights when I was looking around the stage and going "This is magic. What was important about these shows is we had a much bigger task than people understood.
Our biggest competition was our history. We didn't have to be as good as we used to be. We had to be as good as people thought we were.
The show wasn't to be a replica of what we've done, it was to be what people imagined we had done. We had to be totally committed.
In terms of the stage show for the reunion tour, what we wanted to do was look at the '77 show in a sense as a pinnacle. That is what we chose to build on but not copy.
There are also elements from other shows too in the sense that there's bombs and the flying rig and the breaking of the guitars.
At that time, it was the ultimate Kiss show in the sense that we looked at the show, which we thought was our best and said, "Top this. In September , the reunited group issued Psycho Circus.
Although it was the first album with the original lineup since 's Dynasty , the contributions of Frehley and Criss were minimal.
While the images of Frehley and Criss are featured prominently on the album, most of the lead guitar work was later revealed to have been performed by future band member Tommy Thayer.
Former member Kulick made an appearance on the intro of the song "Within". Most drum duties were handled by session musician Kevin Valentine. Despite the controversy, the album achieved a No.
It proved to be another success, and was historic for being the first to ever incorporate 3D visuals into a stage show. The film takes place in , and focuses on four teenagers willing to do anything to score tickets for a sold-out Kiss show in Detroit.
The next month, the group worked in collaboration with World Championship Wrestling to produce a Kiss-themed wrestler known as The Demon , whose face was painted to resemble Simmons' makeup.
The character was short-lived, and all ties to Kiss were cut by WCW when its head, Eric Bischoff , was relieved of his duties in September of that year.
Kiss launched a U. Farewell Tour in March The Reunion tour made us the number one band again. We played to about two million people in one year.
Then we did the Psycho Circus tour and after that we thought, "been there, done it. On the eve of the Japanese and Australian leg of the Farewell Tour on January 31, , Criss suddenly left the band once again, because he and the band could not come to agreement with his contract salary.
Taking his place was previous Kiss drummer Singer who, in a move that was controversial among longtime fans, assumed Criss' Cat persona as the Farewell Tour continued.
In introducing the Kiss Kasket, Simmons quipped, "I love livin', but this makes the alternative look pretty damn good.
NARAS has 12 chapters throughout the United States, hence 12 ceremonies throughout the year, with the honorees each being honored by the chapter closest to their residence.
Kiss was relatively quiet through the rest of the year, but started with some controversy as Simmons took part in a controversial interview on National Public Radio with host Terry Gross.
This was Frehley's final performance as a member of Kiss. On March 6, , Kiss performed a private concert at a resort in Trelawny , Jamaica. Frehley, who was no longer under contract, did not perform with the group.
He was replaced by Thayer, who donned Frehley's Spaceman makeup and costume for his first live appearance with Kiss.
Thayer again performed with the group in April , when Kiss performed "Detroit Rock City" with pre-recorded music and live vocals for an appearance on Dick Clark's American Bandstand 50th Anniversary show, which aired on May 3.
Thayer once again replaced Frehley, while Criss returned to the group. Despite claims made prior to the Farewell Tour that it would be the group's last, Kiss toured with Aerosmith in Frehley announced that his departure from the band was permanent, stating that he believed the Farewell Tour would be Kiss' last,  and that he did not want to open for Aerosmith.
This package included a seat in the first five rows, a meet-and-greet with Kiss after their performance and a photograph with the band. Simmons and Stanley did not renew Criss' contract when it expired in March Criss, on his website, stated that "No one, again, no one has called me, or my attorney about an extension for future touring.
As a founding member I find this to be disrespectful to me, and to the fans that have made us one of the biggest bands in the world. The tour ended in August with a sold-out show in Mexico City.
Selected dates on the tour were filmed for the Rock the Nation Live! He has already had two hip surgeries performed, with more likely in the future.
