I've never understood KISS as music. I've studied them trying to figure out the appeal, and I don't get it.

But as a business man, I respect the hell out of Gene Simmons. He helped build a brand name from nothing and milked it for all it's worth. Brilliant in the business sense. Not so much in the musical sense.
OH, he was brilliant in the musical sense too. The band played EXACTLY the right stuff to get as many people to listen as they did. Musical GENIUSES they are!!! Had they been any different the effect would ALSO have been different. Maybe NOT as successful!!
