Call me corny, cheesy, lame, tone deaf, or whatever you'd like but I love old school KISS, especially Ace Frehley! I wasn't raised on classic KISS like a lot of you guys. I'm 31 years old so I missed the band's heyday and none of my friends were into them. I took it upon myself to give KISS a listen in the mid 90's. Like a lot of people I thought KISS put on a great show but I was thoroughly blown away by the pure and raw rock 'n' roll sound of their classic period, '73-'80ish. Apparently it's in vogue these days to view KISS as poor musicians in stupid costumes. I see KISS as much more than that. The music of the classic period was "Hotter Than Hell" and 200% pure Rock 'N' Roll! Besides, many bands in the 70's wore makeup and costumes but for some reason KISS is singled out for this? As far as musical prowess is concerned, how was KISS any less talented than bands such as AC DC and the like? How about Ace's skill as a lead guitarist? Again, apparently it is the current trend to proclaim Ace as one of the crappiest rock guitarists that ever lived. Why? I think Ace had a unique style and he recorded many, many memorable leads/songs. LONG LIVE ACE FREHLEY!!!
