KISS...that's a great debate. Because that catalog is weak. I LOVE them...I wear a KISS tshirt probably once a month...but as a whole there's not much there musically speaking. Depth, I mean.
Their best songs are sung by Peter Criss....such irony...they let him sing the slower songs because they were afraid their fans wouldn't respect them...and they turn out better than most of their harder stuff. Hard luck Woman is KISS doing Rod Stewart and it's a great song.
There's a documentary somewhere that tells the story of "Beth," and it's really one of the better stories in rock n roll.
