John spelade bandet in Animalize , som släpptes den 13 september Under förberedelserna för Animalize Tour drabbades St.
Kiss och St. John gick skilda vägar i december och man rekryterade Bruce Kulick som gitarrist. Denna konsert kom att bli Carrs sista med Kiss.
Den 19 maj gavs albumet Revenge ut, tillägnat Carr. Revenge Tour fortsatte sedan i USA mellan oktober och december Inga överraskningar.
Presskonferensen hölls av Conan O'Brien och sändes i över 50 länder. Tidigare under sommaren släppte bandet sin dittills kanske mest skandalösa vara — Kiss Kasket en kista.
Simmons uttalade sig i samband av kistans introduktion: "Jag älskar att leva, men detta gör att alternativet ser riktigt jäkla bra ut.
Som en originalmedlem finner jag detta respektlöst mot mig, och mot fansen som har gjort oss till ett av de största banden i världen. Gruppens forne gitarrist Mark St.
Music like we never heard before. We said, "this is something we can do! Music power rocks the world. On September 15, , the RIAA announced that the band had earned more Gold records than any other American band in the association's year history, with a total of 30 Gold album awards including the band's four solo albums.
What an extraordinary achievement for an enduring band. Forty years later and the band is still rocking. In , Kiss conducted a summer tour, titled the Freedom to Rock Tour , of less frequented cities and smaller venues.
The tour ran throughout the summer, with opening acts Caleb Johnson and the Dead Daisies. There had been conflicting stories regarding whether Kiss would record another album.
Simmons had said "yes" in interviews, saying that he had songs written and lined up for a new album. Stanley and Thayer disputed this, however, and said that they did not vow to make one and that the band could move forward without new music.
Simmons and Stanley made cameo appearances in the film Why Him? This is gonna be our last tour. It will be the most explosive, biggest show we've ever done.
People who love us, come see us. If you've never seen us, this is the time. This will be the show. This was the first time Frehley and the band had performed together since for the closing ceremonies of the Winter Olympics , and Kulick's first time performing with the band live since his departure in The band's final tour kicked off on January 31 in Vancouver , British Columbia, Canada; it currently features additional dates that run through October 3, , in Fort Worth , United States.
During the first leg of the End of the Road World Tour, Kiss was accused by fans of lip syncing and using backing tracks.
Former Skid Row vocalist Sebastian Bach defended Kiss, saying that the band did not lip-sync at the show he attended. On November 14, , the band announced that its Australia and New Zealand shows on its final tour had been cancelled due to Stanley's health issues, and stated: "Doctor's orders ultimately have taken precedence and finally we now find ourselves with no choice but to surrender".
While on the Kiss Kruise in November , Kiss had announced that it would be performing the last show of its final tour on July 17, , in New York City.
I don't really know. We've got about another year and a half to go on this tour. I'm sure most people here know we're on the End of the Road World Tour right now.
This tour started about a year ago, and we've got about a year and a half to go. The last show's gonna be July 17, in New York City.
So I don't really know exactly what my plans are at the end of this. Kiss is not gonna go away, though, either. The band is not gonna tour, but the Kiss music, the identities and the characters and the brand and the merchandise, that will all continue on.
I think that Kiss will continue on in some way. I can't imagine it not. With the events of the COVID pandemic , the band has temporarily ceased its final tour, with Simmons commenting that the tour would continue once scientists had confirmed that it is safe to resume.
Kiss has typically been classified under the genres of hard rock ,  shock rock , heavy metal ,    and glam rock.
In , starting with Lick It Up and the removal of its trademark make-up, the band began incorporating elements of glam metal into its sound and visual image.
Its music is described as "a commercially potent mix of anthemic, fist-pounding hard rock, driven by sleek hooks and ballads powered by loud guitars, cloying melodies, and sweeping strings.
It was a sound that laid the groundwork for both arena rock and the pop-metal that dominated rock in the late s.
Kiss was strongly influenced by Alice Cooper and the New York Dolls ,  while Gene Simmons has stated that the band's "musical heart and soul lies in England".
The world of concert touring was changed by Kiss's practice of erecting uniquely designed stage sets. Tours got larger, carrying more personnel and equipment, including sets, costumes, sound and lighting gear, and pyrotechnics, all requiring more trucking and the total cost increasing by millions of dollars.
Kiss also innovated with a significant expansion of concert merchandising, selling non-musical Kiss-branded goods to concertgoers.
The sales of merchandise helped pay for the concert expenses and bring a profit to the band as well as give them more of a presence without relying solely on radio.
Other bands copied Kiss by selling their own branded goods at concerts, a practice which became more of a necessity in the s with increasing costs of touring.
The band is famous for its iconic makeup designs, each of which represents a different character or persona. The current lineup consists of the original four designs: the "Starchild", the "Demon", the "Spaceman" and the "Catman".
The band formerly included a practice of giving any new members a new persona, such as "The Fox" for Carr and "The Ankh Warrior" for Vincent; this practice was ended after Singer and Thayer took up Frehley's "Spaceman" and Criss's "Catman" personas.
When asked on the matter, Simmons stated "Why wouldn't we use the classic makeup? We own it". Criss relinquished his rights to his makeup when he left the band in , which he later regretted, saying "I'm pissed at myself that my makeup slipped through my hands"; while Frehley claims he licensed his design to the band and would get it back, a notion which Stanley has called "a fantasy".
During —74, Stanley occasionally used an alternative makeup design called the "Bandit" for select photo-shoots and live shows after Neil Bogart , head of Casablanca Records, suggested to him that he use a design that was symmetrical like those of the rest of the band.
During this time, he was also still using the Starchild makeup—sometimes even using both designs at the same photo-shoots. In , he stopped using the Bandit design permanently.
On the cover of the band's debut album, Criss used a drastically different variation of his Catman makeup dubbed the "Pantomime Cat" after he allowed the makeup artist at the shoot to use their own ideas instead of following the usual design.
Carr was originally going to be the "Hawk", a design which Simmons recalled in his autobiography looked like Big Bird from Sesame Street.
One photo of Carr wearing this proposed design exists today, and also one of a mannequin Stanley set up wearing the proposed makeup and outfit.
Unlike the Bandit and Pantomime Cat, this alternative design was never used in any official capacity.
The Hawk design was also considered for Vincent and Singer. John and Kulick were members of Kiss only during the non-makeup period. Kulick stated that had he ever worn makeup in the band, he would have liked to have been the "Dog": "I figure that since there's already a cat in the band, I should probably be the dog.
I'd have a big circle around one eye and I'd look like Petey from the Little Rascals. I've actually seen one or two fan renditions of what that might look like, so yeah, I'd be the dog.

The second part of Kiss's and Aucoin's plan called for the band to appear in a film that would cement its image of larger-than-life rock-and-roll superheroes.
Filming commenced in the spring of Although the project was proposed to the band as a cross between A Hard Day's Night and Star Wars , the final result fell far short of those expectations.
The script underwent numerous rewrites, and the band particularly Criss and Frehley grew increasingly frustrated with the filmmaking process. It was released theatrically, after many changes, outside the U.
The band members were unhappy with the finished film, and would speak about their filmmaking experience in later interviews with a mix of humorous embarrassment and regret.
They felt that the film portrayed them more as clowns than superheroes. The artistic failure of the film led to a rift between the band and Aucoin.
Kiss' first album of new material in two years, Dynasty , continued the band's platinum streak. Session drummer Anton Fig performed almost all the percussion on the album while Criss recovered from an automobile accident.
The only song to feature Criss's drumming was "Dirty Livin ' ", on which he also sang lead. Billed as "The Return of Kiss", the Dynasty Tour was expected by Kiss and its management to build on the success of previous tours.
Plans were drawn up for a Kiss-themed traveling amusement park called "Kiss World", but were abandoned because of the immense costs involved;  however, "The Return of Kiss" saw a marked decline in attendance.
The crowds on this tour were much younger than previous audiences had been, with many preadolescent children in Kiss make-up with their mothers and fathers who were sometimes wearing the make-up themselves in tow at most concerts.
Kiss themselves did little to dissuade this new fan base, donning colorful costumes that reinforced a cartoonish image for these younger fans. The fans were unaware of the dissension within the band.
One very public indication of the heightened friction within the group was an infamous October 31, , interview on Tom Snyder 's late-night The Tomorrow Show.
During the episode, a visibly irritated Simmons and Stanley attempted, unsuccessfully, to contain the inebriated Frehley, whose frequent laughter and joking overshadowed the conversation between Snyder and the rest of the band.
Criss made references to his large gun collection, to the chagrin of Simmons. By the end of the Dynasty tour in December , tensions between Criss and the rest of the band were at an all-time high.
His drumming skills had noticeably eroded, and he even intentionally slowed down—or stopped playing altogether—during some concerts.
The final show of the tour December 16, was the last time Criss performed with the group for almost 17 years, although he remained an official member for nearly six more months.
Anton Fig played all the drums on the next album, Unmasked , although he was not credited, while Criss appeared on the cover.
Showcasing a slick, contemporary pop sound, Unmasked released May 20, had the dubious distinction of being the first Kiss album since Dressed to Kill to not achieve platinum sales.
Soon after the album's release, Criss' departure was officially announced. The band auditioned dozens of replacements for Criss in June One of the many who auditioned was Tico Torres who would later be with Bon Jovi.
They finally settled on a little-known drummer-guitarist-pianist-keyboardist-singer from Brooklyn named Paul Charles Caravello born July 12, who adopted the stage name Eric Carr.
His first make-up design was modeled on a hawk, though it was rejected as Stanley felt it looked more like a chicken. Carr ultimately settled on a "Fox" persona.
This was Kiss's only U. The band's tour of Australia and New Zealand, on the other hand, was one of the biggest in its history, as they played to sold-out crowds and received overwhelmingly positive press coverage.
For its next album, the band worked again with producer Ezrin, with whom Kiss had found success on Destroyer. Early press reports indicated that the new album would be a return to the hard rock style that had originally brought the band success.
However, 's Music from "The Elder" was a concept album featuring medieval horns, strings, harps , and synthesizers. The album was presented as a soundtrack to a film that was never made, making it difficult to follow the storyline.
To make matters worse, having received negative feedback following its record company's preview of the album, Kiss altered the record's track sequence in most countries to emphasize potential singles "The Oath" and "A World Without Heroes", which all but guaranteed the inability of listeners to understand the already-muddled storyline.
Once released, fan reaction to The Elder was harsh; it failed to achieve Gold status and peaked at No.
The band made only two appearances in support of the new album, both in January One was a performance on the ABC late-night variety program Fridays , while the second was a lip-synced performance that was broadcast via satellite during Italy's Sanremo Music Festival.
Absent from the satellite performance was Frehley, who had become increasingly frustrated with Kiss's new musical direction.
Upset with the band's decision to record Music from "The Elder" , he did not actively participate in the album's creation, providing lead vocals for only one track, "Dark Light".
He did not appear at a special concert at Studio 54 in New York City, leaving Kiss to perform as a trio. He recorded his guitar parts at his home studio in Wilton, Connecticut , and mailed them to Ezrin.
Another source of frustration for Frehley was that with the departure of Criss, and with Carr not being an equal partner in the band, he was often outvoted 2-to-1 on group decisions.
In June , Frehley's departure from the band was negotiated, although he did not officially leave until December, and remained a business partner with Simmons and Stanley until Although Frehley had already decided to leave the band, he was pictured on the covers of 's Killers and Creatures of the Night , although he did not participate in the recording of either album.
Creatures of the Night October 13, was Kiss' heaviest album to date, and although it fared better than Music from "The Elder" , it peaked at only No.
In Frehley's absence, Kiss utilized a number of guitarists for the recording of the album, including Vinnie Vincent born Vincent John Cusano on August 6, Frehley's last appearance with the band until the reunion was in the music video for the single " I Love It Loud ", which was co-written by Vincent.
Frehley also appeared on the cover of the original Creatures of the Night album artwork. When the album was remixed and re-released in with a non-make-up cover and a slightly different song order, to reflect the band's roster change and abandonment of its make-up and costumes, Vincent was again absent from the album cover, as then-current lead guitarist, Bruce Kulick , appeared instead.
Vincent officially replaced Frehley as lead guitarist in December , as the band embarked on its 10th Anniversary Tour. Vincent originally wanted to use his birth name in the band, but this was vetoed by Simmons on the grounds that it sounded "too ethnic".
Specifically, according to Simmons, "it sounded like a fruit vendor". Simmons went on to note that "fairly or unfairly, rock and roll is about image".
Simmons later suggested the name change to "Vinnie Vincent". Vincent started actively pushing to join Kiss as a full member. Despite the misgivings that both Simmons and Stanley harbored about his personality, Vincent was taken into the band.
Stanley designed a character, "The Wiz"   also known as "The Egyptian Warrior",  and make-up centered around an Egyptian ankh , for Vincent.
A persona as "The Ankh Warrior" or similar is not mentioned in the book at all. Vincent's personality did not mesh well with either Stanley or Simmons, and he was dismissed from Kiss at the end of the Creatures tour.
He was quickly reinstated before recording started for Lick It Up because Simmons and Stanley could not find a new lead guitarist on such short notice.
Vincent appeared on the cover of Lick It Up and was credited as the lead guitarist. Personality issues arose once again, and Vincent was fired following the Lick It Up tour, due in part to excessive guitar soloing at a concert in Quebec.
He was replaced by Mark St. John birth name Mark Norton. Vincent's work on Creatures of the Night was not officially recognized until the album was remastered in Before long, Vincent fell out with Simmons and Stanley for a third time, and they again severed their musical ties.
Persistent rumors circulated for years among Kiss fans regarding the true reason for Vincent's dismissals from Kiss, with at least one band member refusing to comment except to say that legally it was not up for discussion.
Simmons stated in an interview several years later that Vincent's firing was for "unethical behavior", but he did not elaborate:.
I named Vincent Cusano, 'Vinnie Vincent'. That's the only gift he's allowed. It's interesting that Vinnie hasn't changed his name back to Vinnie Cusano.
Vinnie, for the record, was fired for unethical behavior, not because of lack of talent. The guy is very talented. He was unethical. He was fired.
Sensing it was time for a change, Kiss made the decision to abandon its trademark make-up and costumes. The band officially appeared in public without make-up for the first time since its very early days on a September 18, , appearance on MTV, which coincided with the release of Lick It Up.
Lick It Up became Kiss' first Gold record in three years, but the tour was even more sparsely attended than the previous one. Vincent did not get along with Simmons and Stanley, and he left the band at the conclusion of the tour in March Vincent's replacement was Mark St.
John , a session player and guitar tutor. With St. John, Kiss released the album Animalize on September 13, Animalize followed the success of Lick It Up , and due in part to consistent MTV play for the " Heaven's on Fire " video, Animalize was the band's best-selling record in America during the decade, with over two million albums sold.
With the success of the album and subsequent tour, Kiss had recaptured some of its earlier glory though not to the level of its s heyday.
John, however, came down with reactive arthritis during tour rehearsals, and only performed at a handful of shows before being dismissed from the band in December The band hired Bruce Kulick to replace St.
Kulick had previously filled in for St. John during the first two months of the Animalize tour. Kulick was Kiss' fourth lead guitarist in less than three years, but he stayed with the band for 12 years.
One of the first concerts Kulick played as an official member of the band was at Detroit, Michigan's Cobo Hall. This was later released as the band's first home video, Animalize Live Uncensored.
Crazy Nights , in particular, was one of Kiss' most successful albums overseas. The single " Crazy Crazy Nights " reached No. Kiss ended the decade with the October release Hot in the Shade.
Although the album failed to achieve platinum status, it spawned the hit ballad " Forever ", co-written by Michael Bolton.
Peaking at No. During this time, Kiss struggled with its identity and fan base. Simmons, arguably the driving force in Kiss during the s, became less involved with the group in the s as he pursued outside interests, most notably a film career.
Stanley took a more prominent role as a result. In February , the band decided to once again enlist Ezrin to produce its next album.
Before recording could begin in earnest, however, tragedy struck. In March , it was discovered that Carr had a tumor on his heart.
It was successfully removed the following month, but more tumors were soon discovered in his lungs. Carr received chemotherapy and was pronounced cancer-free in July.
However, in September he suffered the first of two cerebral hemorrhages. He died on November 24, , at the age of Singer had played with Paul Stanley previously, as part of Stanley's backing band during a solo tour.
Kiss released Revenge on May 19, It featured a leaner, harder-edged sound, as indicated by the first single, " Unholy ". In a surprise move, Kiss enlisted Vincent to help with songwriting duties.
The album debuted in the Top 10 and went Gold. Kiss embarked on a brief club tour of the U. Four days later, Kiss were inducted into Hollywood's RockWalk.
During this period, Kiss nostalgia started to pick up steam. June saw the release of Kiss My Ass: Classic Kiss Regrooved , a compilation album featuring popular artists of the era putting their own spin on Kiss songs.
In , the group released the book Kisstory , a page, 9 pounds 4. That same year, the band embarked on a unique and well-received Worldwide Kiss Convention Tour.
The conventions were all-day events, featuring displays of vintage Kiss stage outfits, instruments and memorabilia; performances by Kiss cover bands; and dealers selling Kiss merchandise from every stage of the band's career.
Kiss appeared live at the conventions, conducted question and answer sessions, signed autographs, and performed a two-hour acoustic set composed mostly of spontaneous fan requests.
On the first U. It was the first time Criss had performed publicly with the band in nearly 16 years. The band contacted Criss and Frehley and invited them to participate in the event.
In the weeks following the Unplugged concert, however, the band with Kulick and Singer , returned to the studio for the first time in three years to record a follow-up to Revenge.
Carnival of Souls: The Final Sessions was completed in February , but its release was delayed for almost two years.Kiss wanted to express the excitement felt at its Vollmachtsbescheinigung which its Mah Jong Spielen albums had so far failed to do with its first live album. Nel i Kiss Rock Band organizzano il Worldwide Kiss Convention Tour, durante il quale si esibiscono cover bands e in cui vengono allestite delle mostre in cui vengono esposti diversi oggetti e strumentazioni. We own it". Early press reports indicated that the new album would be a return to the hard rock style that had originally brought the band success. Vincent's replacement was Champions League 2021 Sky St. Retrieved November 20, Coventry was a study in contrasts. February 3, Of the four, Frehley's album was the most successful, and spawned the only resulting hit single, a cover of " Beat The Banker York Groove ", written by Russ Ballard and originally performed by Hello.
