It’s been said that a man’s hair turns gray at the moment he realizes the great moments of his life weren’t so great.  That may explain why you won’t see a gray hair on Gene Simmons or Paul Stanley.  Great moments that will always remain great.  Or maybe it’s hair die and wigs. I started listening to KISS as a seven-year-old and since have been my favorite band.  Around my 14th birthday, I realized KISS…

KISS – Animalize Live Uncensored (Video Review, KISSmas in July)

When I first thought of doing a review on this concert video I realized that the last time I watched this show was over 25+ years ago.  Immediately it hit me… What would I think of this video now that I’m an old man?  Spoiler alert: I love it just as much as I did when I was a kid.  Actually, I understand and appreciate the Paul commentary a lot more.  This show happens 15…

KISS – Magic #7 (Songs ranked, KISSmas in July)

Have you ever wondered why the number seven gets so much attention?  You never hear about the numbers four, five or nine.  Whether you think seven is lucky, aspire to see the Seven Wonders of the World or believe in the religious connotation of 777, there is no doubt that this magical number has a place in our society.  It even shows up in rock music.  Poison had “7 Days Over You”, TNT had the…

Well, you can now add Cheap Trick to the 18-timers club with their latest CD, We’re All Alright! If you’re going to name your…
