While Kiss have certainly carved out their own chapter in music history, Gene Simmons recently shared his thoughts on the current state of the music industry for new bands, the challenges that they face and the disappearance of the rock icon.
KISS have been around for 40 friggin' years. Formed in 1973, KISS became one of the biggest rock bands in the world with classic albums such as 'Destroyer' and 'Love Gun' before choosing to nix the makeup in 1983.
Just when we thought KISS ran out of stuff to slap their name onto, we've been proven wrong yet again. This time around, KISS have not just branded a product -- they've taken over an entire football team!
Leave it to Kiss to bring four diverse rockers together for a new project. Guns N’ Roses guitarist Ron ‘Bumblefoot’ Thal and Pantera and Kill Devil Hill bassist Rex Brown are just two of the members of the new all-star Kiss tribute band A.L.I.V.E.!. A.L.I.V.E.! also features former Whitesnake drummer Brian Tichy, and Kill Devil Hill guitarist Mark Zavon. The foursome are calling their new collaboration A.L.I.V.E.! a true tribute to ‘70s era Kiss.
There's no way you didn't see this one coming. How could a band with signature coffins for sale not have their own beer? KISS 'Destroyer' beer is actually made in Sweden, but based on German tradition.

There's been a loss in the Kiss family, as singer Paul Stanley is mourning the death of his mother, Eva Eisen. Eisen passed away Saturday (Sept. 29) at the age of 88. The official cause of death was not given.
If you know anything about Motley Crue and Kiss, it's that the two bands really love their pyro. So it was definitely a little scary when a transport truck carrying some of Motley Crue's pyrotechnic equipment was involved in an accident en route to the band's performance tonight (Sept. 5) in Clarkston, Mich.
