Kiss - Gene
Collectible Rubber Duck
Kiss is an
band formed in
New York City in
1973. Easily identified by their
trademark face paint and stage
outfits, the group rose to prominence in the mid-1970s on the basis
of their elaborate live performances, which featured firebreathing,
blood spitting, smoking guitars, and pyrotechnics. Kiss has been
gold albums to date. The
group's worldwide sales exceed 80 million albums.
The original lineup of
Gene Simmons (bass
Paul Stanley (rhythm
guitar and vocals),
Ace Frehley (lead
guitar and vocals) and
Peter Criss (drums
and vocals) is the most successful and identifiable. With their
makeup and costumes, they took on the personas of
comic book-style characters—the
Demon (Simmons), the Star Child (Stanley), the Space Man (Frehley),
and the Cat Man (Criss). Due to
substance abuse problems and
creative differences, both Criss and Frehley were out of the group
by 1982. The band's commercial fortunes had also waned considerably
by that point.
In 1983, Kiss abandoned their makeup and enjoyed a
commercial resurgence throughout the rest of the decade. Buoyed by a
wave of Kiss
nostalgia in the 1990s, the band
announced a reunion of the original lineup (with makeup) in 1996.
The resulting Kiss Alive/Worldwide Tour was the top-grossing act of
1996. Criss and Frehley have since left Kiss again, and have been
Eric Singer and
Tommy Thayer, respectively. The
band continues to perform, while Stanley and Simmons have remained
the only two constant members.
Gene Simmons was born Chaim Witz , (born
Israel), better known by his
stage name he is an
bass guitarist and
vocalist. He is best known as "The
Demon", his blood-spitting, fire-breathing, and tongue-wagging
persona in the hard rock band.
