  2. Oh wow , thank you for this , Kiss is the greatest rock band of all time and this show proves it . Gene Simmons is the greatest bass player in history and Paul Stanley is the greatest front man of all time and a great singer too Paul and Gene are legends and tower above all others in rock history.

  4. thanks for the variety big o, but man I forgot just how awful kiss were until hearing this! Ace is a terrible lead guitarist but the rhythm section is no better; the tunes sound like a trainwreck. I understand being a fan when you were a kid but if this still sounds, “fuckin great” as an adult…

    By Dr Love on Apr 21, 2017

  5. agreed doc love , kiss were a joke band with mostly kids for fans. believe they went disco with 1979’s dynasty.

    By brian on Apr 21, 2017

  6. Another bit to my collection, thank you, BigO!

    By Josef (Czech republic) on Apr 21, 2017

  7. Please don’t insult Kiss , Millions of kiss fans can’t be wrong , I’m only 23 so I wasn’t there at the time , I’ve listened to many rock
    Bands from Zeppelin to The Who , Stones Allmans etc and Kiss is way better than any of them Paul is the best rock front man of all time and a great singer , Gene the best base player ever , Ace and Petef are awesome too , Grand Funk Railroad is the only band that comes close to Kiss

    By GW on Apr 21, 2017

  8. Gene Simmons has a 13 inch dick and a 14 inch tongue, pure heaven for the female backstage groupies

    By Tony C on Apr 21, 2017

  9. sorry GW, you can like whatever u want but this is some terrible shit and ace is one of the worst guitarists ever! I’ve heard that paul is transgender but no idea if its true

    By Starrtwatt on Apr 21, 2017

  10. Tony c maybe if he crammed both appendages way up your backside you’d finally shut the fuck up about dicks?

    By Starrtwatt on Apr 21, 2017

  11. Kiss, my ass, it smells !

    By GG Allin died for your sins on Apr 21, 2017

  12. I remember when they went disco brian , hard to forget I was made for loving was such a sellout !also remember the cheesy detachable cardboard love gun that came with the album love gun-it went nicely with my kiss lunch box

    By eric on Apr 21, 2017

  13. star ive heard that rumor before and don’t know if its true,but maybe paul is a lady?

    By brian on Apr 21, 2017

  14. Thans for this: kiss the best band to assure a troll fest here . Eat the bait … MORONS !!!

    By GG Allin died for your sins on Apr 21, 2017

  16. Yeah thans,assuring a troll fest is bait for the best band to eat..thans again

    By trashmouth on Apr 21, 2017

    By Look at me, see ? I'm everyone everywhere on Apr 21, 2017

  18. Could we have some George Clinton ? He’s so black he must be the best and imagine his dick !

    By Atomik Dawg on Apr 21, 2017

  19. hi I’ve just been coming to big o for a couple of weeks and the music is great , despite the many goober troll morons. I keep hearing that paul is a tranny and ace sucks ass is there any truth to any of that?

    By Elliot on Apr 21, 2017

  20. I agree gg and atomic, ace is a terrible musician. he makes that hack john mclaughlin sound like..john mclaughlin

    By Dr Love on Apr 21, 2017

  21. Yeah trashy so … SUCK MY kISS !

    By Anthony Kiedistroy on Apr 21, 2017

  22. oh wow , this is terrible shit! kiss is the worst band ever and this show proves it! some really bad music mixed in with all the past legends at tower records to hover above

    By jimmy on Apr 21, 2017

  23. I completely agree with Anthony,kiss sucks but some little kids liked them so what can you do , to each their own just listen to the music

    By trashmouth on Apr 21, 2017

  24. Gene Simmons has a very long cock , it’s very fat also , his tongue is also great , we loved doing the 69 back then

    By Bebe Buell on Apr 21, 2017

  25. Paul liked sloppy seconds and Ace and Peter would watch and play with themselves

    By Bebe Buell on Apr 21, 2017

  26. Kiss is a band for niggers.

    By monkey on Apr 22, 2017

  27. bebe-i thought you only humped guys from cool bands, what were you doing with kiss?

    By Alan on Apr 22, 2017

  28. Starrtwit…you’re simply a moron harping the same old diarrhea most KISS haters spew out. Must really bother you to know KISS have more Gold albums than any American band ever and are in the RnR Hall of Fame.
    Just the fact you clicked on KISS and felt the need to comment lets me know you actually are well aware how much an ingrained part of Americana KISS have become.

    By Puckered Eye Stare on Apr 22, 2017

  29. keep dreaming puck, kiss deservedly get no respect in the music world nowadays , the only dudes that kiss still resonates with are the guys that were kids in the 70’s,after that crew is gone kiss is gone..ever heard anyone anywhere say they wanna play like ace, gene or peter? me neither

    By james on Apr 22, 2017

  30. 45 Shitastic Minutes Of Paul Stanley’s Stage Banter:

    “Great for ruining parties and torturing anyone who’s trying to sleep.”

    By Kiss This on Apr 22, 2017

  31. I certainly didn’t mean to start a firestorm. I’m sorry but you people are all wrong Kiss is the greatest band of all time , Gene and and Paul are the greatest bassist and frontman ever plus Paul is a great great singer Ace and Peter are top 5 of all time easily. I firmly believe that the people who have made negative comments about Kiss are only trying to create controversy. Most agree with me about Kiss being the best of all time , but because of of all the critic bashing of the band over the decades just can’t bring themselves to admit what everyone knows , that Kiss is the greatest rock band in history

    By GW on Apr 23, 2017

  32. All the negative Kiss comments I can’t quite understand. Arnt they in the rock and roll hall of fame ? Also both Destroyer and Alive 1 are usually in everyone’s lists for best rock albums of all time , Great show and performance here by the way only where is Peter Criss?

    By Sammy on Apr 23, 2017

  33. Sammy-
    Who cares?

    By Kiss This on Apr 23, 2017

  34. Thanks so much for this , it blows both Alive and Alive 2 out of the water , this has got to be a he best live version of Rock and roll all nite I ever heard Paulhas the audience eating out of his hand

    By John Dahl on Apr 23, 2017

  35. Back in 1975 Kiss opened for Black Sabbath for a few shows and blew them off the stage Shouts ofwe want Kiss when Sabbath went on got so bad that theymade them leave the tour . Stuff of rock legend

    By John Dahl on Apr 23, 2017

  36. Yes and everyone says the RNRHOF is a joke because Kiss is also a joke
    I love the combination against nature of “usually” and “everyone” ! Well done
    Ask Eric Carr, he should know

    Kiss deserves fans like you … MORON !!!

    By Sammy Moron on Apr 23, 2017

  37. Stuff of rock legend

    But Kiss will always be remembered for “I was made for lovin’ you” and Sabbath for “Paranoid”

    Stuff of disco legend

    By John Dahl Moron on Apr 23, 2017

  38. John Dahl Moron-not true, some people remember them from kiss meets the phantom or the atrocious solo albums

    By haggatha on Apr 24, 2017

  39. Actually Rock and Roll all nite is Kiss Signiture song , also everyone from Elton John to McCartney to Rod Stewart to the Stones jumped on the disco bandwagon, that doesn’t define their legacies

    By John Dahl on Apr 24, 2017

  40. Hated disco back then but I must admit I’d welcome it over a lot of the mainstream stuff today

    By John Dahl on Apr 24, 2017

  41. john dahl-not at all surprised, I’m sure most of the kids of today will unfortunately be saying the same thing when they’re your age.

    By haggatha on Apr 24, 2017

  42. Kiss aint no fag shit but real man music.Paul and Gene banged thousands of broads like Bebe Buell,Pamela Des Barress,Lori Maddox Sable Starr,Gene banged Cher and married a playboy playmate of the year,Gene is the man bros

    By Carlos Cuevas on Apr 24, 2017

  43. who cares who they banged, the music is terrible

    By haggatha on Apr 24, 2017

  44. carlos you antique, you’re always talking about fag shit and real man music, the US in 2017 must be a pretty uncomfortable place for you to be

    By haggatha on Apr 24, 2017

  45. if you’re really so homophobic why are you always talking about dicks? isn’t constantly talking about dick size an activity closely associated with “fag shit”?
