Konversation with John Harte


Former KISS security director “Big” John Harte joins Aaron and Chris this week to discuss his career working for the Hottest Band in the World. In this hour-plus conversation, John reflects on a wild time as KISS rose to prominence during his initial years working for the band. During these years (1975-1976), John saw the ascension of this New York band to the highest of highs. He also was there to see them drop to their lowest of lows by the early 1980’s. Subjects covered in this in-depth chat include the Paul Lynde Halloween Special from 1976, a death threat on one of the band members, the recording of the 1978 solo albums, the strange period that produced the sharp left turns stylistically with Dynasty, Unmasked, and Music from the Elder as well as the Creatures of the Night tour. There are numerous inside stories in this episode; many of which have not been heard before.

Grab yourself a shot of cold gin and egg nog and sit back and listen to “Big” John Harte giving Aaron and Chris a guided tour through rock and roll KISStory.
