KISS Celebrate 40th Anniversary (A Top Story)


.
On Thursday KISS Celebrate 40th Anniversary was a top story. Here is the recap: (Classic Rock) KISS have marked their 40th anniversary by thanking fans for their support through the decades and frontman Paul Stanley has admitted he only wanted five years of success from the band.

They played their first-ever show on January 30, 1973, in a New York club, after Stanley and Gene Simmons decided to move on from previous band Wicked Lester. They were paid $50 for the appearance in front of an audience of less than 10 people.

The bassist says: "Wicked Lester had just finished its album. Though we had a real recording contract with a major label, and though we had finished an entire album, we were depressed it just wasn't what we had envisioned.

"We tried firing the other three guys but some wouldn't leave. So we quit. We started again with a vision: 'Let's put together the band we never saw on stage." - more on this story
