Here's a better one, if anyone should be interested. The whole interview. Around 14 minutes in he says with a drunken voice "I don't drink anymore":

I found this on Youtube. I was there!! It was a KISS-convention in Copenhagen in 1995 where Ace was preassent. He was a MESS! He walked just pass me, and I could had said "Hi Ace" or something, but he looked like a bum to me, so I didn't bother. 1 year later he was in the KISS-reunion.

I can see Kiss fans booing Tommy, but I don't see 'em booing Bruce.  It's common in America at sporting events and such to make a noise for someone named Bruce that sounds like boo.  

I'm not arguing, just stating what I thought about it.

Comment by Niels (Mod) on April 11, 2014 at 2:07pm

Nah, I'm sure it was booooo, and not Bruuuuuuce :-)) Stanley got a bit surprised, and Criss laughed a bit and said domething to Gene. It wasn't nice though, to booo. No harm done in mentioning them, and it looked as if they were in the audience, since Paul pointed at the front row.

Comment by RJhog (Admin) on April 11, 2014 at 1:52pm

Are you sure it wasn't Bruuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuce?  Cause it happened right after he mentioned Bruce Kulick.  I don't think they were boo's.  I don't think they are friendly to each other except for something like this.  But it was nice to see everybody play nice for the most part.  To bad some Kiss tunes could not be played.

Stanley got buh'ed, when he mentioned Bruce and Tommy at the induction last night. I just saw the whole thing on Youtube. Those 4 dudes together have still a kind of magic between them. Nice to see, that they are friendly to each other. Ace was cool, as always.

Back In The Solo Album Groove: Double Platinum, Front and Center
1978 wasn't all about the KISS solo albums... KISS also released their first proper international "greatest hits" package. In this piece we put "Double Platinum" under the microscope.

As 1978 opened, Rolling Stone Magazine writers continued their obdurate ignorance regarding the success of a band that the so-called pop-culture wizards simply couldn't understand. In their belated review of "Alive II" they pompously opined, "One of the perennial saving graces of rock & roll is its accessibility to the true believer. In a sort of Horatio Alger formula, if you need it badly enough and have the right attitude, eventually you'll become an adequate rocker. Kiss, a band built almost entirely around an image, offers the latest proof of this maxim" (RS #256, Jan. 1978, John Swenson). Perhaps it was an attempt at intellectual humor, over the heads of most KISS fans that might not have cared (or even known) about the stories of the 19th century author referenced, but it wasn't without a hint of truth. The following month the magazine provided a platform for Charles M. Young to suggest that the band was becoming both boring and safe: "The thrill is gone. Much as I enjoy watching Gene Simmons puke blood; he's been doing it every night for three years... Their demographics are changing. Through overexposure, Kiss seems no longer Forbidden Fruit. They are losing their traditional support among proletarian teenage boys and picking up children impressed by costumes. A third of the crowd appeared to be parents with little kids. Kiss records are selling phenomenally well, but maybe to Shaun Cassidy weenie bops" (RS #258, Feb. 1978, Charles M. Young). In retrospect, the crux of Young's superficial analysis was undoubtedly true. KISS' core demographic was changing. As it had changed in 1976 when "Destroyer" was released, moving the band away from their leather and flame glitter beginnings, the high-point of "Alive II" had set the stage for the next progression: Vegas-like flash in a safe and family-friendly manner. But that was a step the band had yet to take, even if the groundwork was being laid...
