Forty years ago in January 1973, Paul, Gene, and Peter held auditions for a lead guitarist for their new band. As the band took shape, they chose Ace. Paul suggested the name KISS, and the band was born. Later that month, KISS performed its first show on January 30th at Popcorn, a club in Queens, New York.
Four decades on, KISS is still rocking a legion of fans that number in the millions around the globe! What an amazing ride it has been so far! Now 40 years strong, Paul, Tommy, Eric and Gene prepare for a MONSTER world tour in 2013!
We know that KISS is the soundtrack to so many of your lives. We want to hear from you! Tell us about your 40 years with KISS.
