The rock band Kiss and the drunken interview

Kiss (often stylized as KIϟϟ) is an American rock band formed in New York City in January 1973. The band members was Paul StanleyGene SimmonsPeter Criss, and Ace Frehley. Well known for its members’ face paint and stage outfits, the group rose to prominence in the mid-to-late 1970s.

Their live show performances featured fire breathing, blood-spitting, smoking guitars, shooting rockets, levitating drum kits, and pyrotechnics . The band has gone through several lineup changes. Stanley and Simmons is the only members to feature in every lineup. The original and best-known lineup consisted of Stanley (vocals and rhythm guitar), Simmons (vocals and bass), Frehley (lead guitar and vocals), and Criss (drums and vocals). With their make-up and costumes, they took on the personae of comic book-style characters. The Starchild (Stanley), the Demon (Simmons), the Spaceman or Space Ace (Frehley), and the Catman (Criss). Due to creative differences, both Criss and Frehley had departed the group by 1982. In 1983, Kiss began performing without makeup and costumes. That marked the beginning of the band’s “unmasked” era that would last for over a decade.

The drunken interview with Kiss was made in 1979 and we can see how the guitarist Ace Frehley visibly annoys his other bandmates Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley.
