Kiss meets the monsters

There was one thing that hit me as hard and left as big a impression on me as when I first saw a copy of Famous Monsters magazine. The first time I saw a picture of the band Kiss. I new there was this song on the radio I really liked called "Rock and Roll all night" but I had never really seen or heard of this band Kiss. One day my sister brought home a copy of the album Kiss Alive. If any one has seen this cover it is one of my all time favorite pictures, in fact, right now that picture is the wallpaper on my cell phone. Just think of it, the two things I was the most into was Monsters and rock and roll. When I saw that album I cover I saw what was to me the best of both worlds. That make-up and those costumes, all the fire and smoke and especially Gene Simmons who created his persona the Demon right out of these very classic horror flicks.
So yes I now had some new hero's up there with Lugosi, Karloff, Chaney and my most favorite most forgotten monster master, Dwight Frye. Sure Alice Cooper was cool but this seemed to go that one step beyond. Does it get any better than this.
