There’s a lot of misinformed idiots making claims that Kiss is no longer successful or in the spotlight anymore. I call BULLSHIT. Do people even get their facts right before they open their idiot mouths???? Kiss has always been successful, love ’em or hate ’em. The only reason people think Kiss is no longer big in the mainstream is ’cause they haven’t made a new studio album in a long while. Agree with it or not, Kiss is still in the spotlight.
Their last three studio albums were pretty high in the Billboard 200. Look it up. “Psycho Circus” (1998) made it up to no. 3. “Sonic Boom” (2009) made it to no. 2. Their latest album, “Monster” made it to no. 3. The band never made a no. 1 album before but they are still successful.
On top of that, Kiss still sells out concerts and they’re on a successful tour.
Love Kiss or hate ’em, they are legends.
When Gene says that “Rock is dead” and he says that newer bands deserve the “iconic” status he’s only speaking from his experience of what Kiss went through back in the day. Gene has been in the music business for over 30 years or more so he has seen how the music business changed. He has more experience in the music industry than any of us so the man knows what he’s talking about.
I know Gene is a crazy guy but him saying crazy stuff is nothing new. I’ve been reading interviews with Gene and Paul in interviews for a long time and those guys aren’t afraid to tell things like it is. They maybe egotistical yes but at the same time those guys are honest.
Why do people have to be such negative pieces of shits??? Take your hateful opinions and shove ’em up your ass.
