Kiss’ solution was to go sharply against that grain—to cover all that theatrical ground again, and to do it all at once.
Kiss was about relentless crowd-pleasing—and please the crowds they did, racking up a six-figure fan-club membership and becoming one of the hugest bands, and brands, since the Fab Four themselves.
Yet the band has soldiered on, through personnel changes and pop-cultural shifts, even the eventual removal and re-application of their once-sacred face paint—until they finally emerged, by the late 1990s, as enduring icons, as a rock institution, known as much for their non-stop pursuit of money and fame as for their fistful of hit records.

  KISS (band) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
KISS concerts featured things such as Simmons spitting "blood" (primarily yogurt and food coloring) or "breathing fire" (spitting flammable liquid at a torch); Frehley soloing as his guitar burst into flames (light and smoke bombs placed inside the guitar); Criss's elevating drum riser that emitted sparks; Stanley's Townshend-style guitar smashing; and pyrotechnics throughout the show.
For the band members, it was a chance to showcase their individual musical styles and tastes outside of KISS, and in some cases to collaborate with contemporary artists (Simmons's album featured appearances by the likes of Aerosmith's Joe Perry, Cheap Trick's Rick Nielsen, disco diva Donna Summer, and then-girlfriend Cher).
The band's 1980 tour of Australia and New Zealand, on the other hand, was one of the biggest in their history, as they played to sold-out crowds and enjoyed enormous popularity amongst the fans there.

Kiss was the brainchild of Gene Simmons (bass, vocals) and Paul Stanley (rhythm guitar, vocals), former members of the New York-based hard rock band Wicked Lester; the duo brought in drummer Peter Criss through his ad in Rolling Stone and guitarist Ace Frehley responded to an advertisement in The Village Voice.
Kiss Unmasked, released in the summer of 1980, was recorded with session drummer Anton Fig; Criss' permanent replacement, Eric Carr, joined the band in time for their 1980 world tour.
Kiss Unmasked was their first record since Destroyer to fail to go platinum, and 1981's Music From the Elder, their first album recorded with Carr, didn't even go gold -- it couldn't even climb past number 75 on the charts.

KISS is a New York City-based heavy metal band that became famous in the mid to late 1970s.
The band was known for its elaborate costumes and stage sets, and the fact that the band never appeared in public except in heavy make-up which disguised their real identities.
The band stopped wearing their make-up in 1983, and put it back on by the mid 1990s when they began touring as a 1970's nostalgia act.

 KISS (band) at AllExperts
KISS traces its roots to Wicked Lester, a New York City-based rock and roll band led by co-founders Gene Simmons (born Chaim Witz in Haifa, Israel on August 25, 1949) and Paul Stanley (born Stanley Harvey Eisen in Queens, New York City on January 20, 1952).
KISS concerts featured things such as Simmons spitting "blood" (primarily yogurt and food coloring) or "breathing fire" (spitting flammable liquid at a torch); Frehley soloing as his guitar burst into flames (light and smoke bombs placed inside the guitar); Criss's elevating drum riser that emitted sparks; Stanley's Townshend-style guitar smashing; and pyrotechnics throughout the show.
KISS was relatively quiet through the rest of the year, but 2002 started with a bang as Simmons turned in an entertaining and controversial interview on National Public Radio, where he criticized NPR and berated host Terry Gross with sexual comments and condescending answers.

 KISS
KISS was the brainchild of Gene Simmons (born Chaim Witz in Haifa, Israel), a former elementary school teacher and bass player, and singer-guitarist Paul Stanley, who were bandmates in a Manhattan-based group called "Wicked Lester".
Simmons and Stanley had a concept for their new band right from the start, which was to perform in full theatrical regalia, including white pancake makeup with elaborate facial markings, platform boots, and outrageous fl and silver getups.
The appeal of KISS has always been based on their live shows: the garish greasepaint make-up, outrageous costumes and pyrotechnic stage effects, along with their hard-rocking anthems, combined to create what was billed as 'The Greatest Rock 'n' Roll Show On Earth'.

He was strictly a studio member while the band made their second attempt at recording an album for Epic and never played live with Wicked Lester, except for one showcase for Epic's A&R man Tom Werman, which was required for the band to keep their record deal.
The whole timing of his "end" with the band is up for debate, though he complained to friends that KISS had decided to fire him during the Labor Day weekend of September 1991.
Technically, Ace was neither out of the band nor still in it, and as of October 2002 Peter has agreed to return to the band for at least one show in 2003.

 ROCK REVIEW;Golden Oldies of Effects Take Kiss Back to Basics - New York Times
When the band played "Firehouse" and Gene Simmons picked up a sword-shaped torch, the crowd knew he'd breathe fire; when Ace Frehley took the stage alone for a long solo of hard-rock squiggles, it wasn't long before smoke was pouring from one guitar and he appeared to shoot flares from another.
Kiss never pretended to be profound, just enjoyable; the band still does its job.
But the band is attached to later, scruffier 1970's rock, particularly the New York Dolls and the Ramones, though it sometimes echoes the Replacements, too.

That's a rare trick, even for Kiss (whose efforts after, oh, 1977 didn't do much more than tread water), and one that should be appreciated even as listening to the album brings back misty-eyed visions of high school.
The fact that Kiss' self-titled debut album is one of the greatest albums of all time is not only because it's chocked full of legendary rock classics, but the fact that it still rocks after all these years is what puts it in the higher echelon of rock and roll history.
Where other eventually great bands had there ups and downs on their first recording, Kiss' entrance into the rock scene was eerily perfected, as if a great deal of thought went into the specific songs recorded.
