I still remember in Jr. high school, my friend Brian introduced me to a new band. He said, you have got to hear these guys. They are the best. In 1975, we were hooked on Led Zeppelin, Alice Cooper, Deep Purple, Nazareth, Aerosmith, and hometown boys Grand Funk Railroad. My friend introduced me to KISS. I was hooked pretty fast- even sent in my $5 and became a member of the KISS Army. Many memories of live shows at Cobo, Olympia, and the show of shows in 1996 at Tiger Stadium.
Can you imagine a private party and KISS was playing? Sure, if I win the Powerball it might happen. Recently, KISS played a small club private party in Texas for 100 people. I’m surprised how news of this hasn’t gone viral on the Internet. Guess when you are filthy rich you can book a KISS concert. Looks like big Tabaco giant Philip Morris paid for everything, allegedly. The set had 15 classic KISS tunes beginning with “Detroit Rock City” and ending the night with “Rock and Roll All Night.” How cool would that have been to be one of the 100 lucky fans to see a special show for the ages? I did hear a rumor this is the last tour- maybe you heard the same rumor.
