Bif Bang Pow Toys Immortalizes KISS As 3 3/4-Inch Action Figures

Toymaker Bif Bang Pow is bringing the first ever 3 3/4-inch KISS action figures to life. The Rock ‘N Roll super heroes will join the ranks of thousands of comic book and movie characters who’ve been preserved in the classic plastic form. Star Wars and Kenner made the size and style the norm in 1978.

KISS Spaceman Ace Frehley Rocks Trees in Dallas, TX

Ace Frehley landed in Dallas, TX at Trees for his “Space Invader” tour on Monday, December 1st, 2014. The Spaceman demonstrated to a packed house why he deserved his induction into the Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame earlier this year. He might not wear his signature makeup anymore, but he’s still the same talented and quirky lead guitarist he was in the late 1970s playing to sold-out arenas in KISS. He’s just older and wiser than he was in those hazy days filled with drugs and booze.

Interview: Bassist / Vocalist Chris Wyse of Ace Frehley’s Band

Legendary KISS Spaceman Ace Frehley lands in Dallas, TX on December 1st. The Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame Inductee will be taking the stage at Trees for what will surely be an electrifying experience. His performance includes KISS classics, solo material from a four decades long career, and songs from his latest album Space Invader.

Flashback: KISS Meets the Phantom of the Park

In 1978, there were two things on the minds of boys ages 5 to 16. OK, maybe three. They were KISS, Star Wars, and girls. You pick the order they were in for you personally. I was 6, so girls really hadn't figured into the equation yet.

Music Review: Ace Frehley – Space Invader

Many will find it up for dispute, but I believe a review of legendary rock musician Ace Frehley’s newest album Space Invader fits in perfectly here. The former KISS guitarist made a name for himself onstage as he stalked around in his interstellar costume while his instrument smoked and he fired off rockets into the sky as strobe lights flashed and flames jumped around him. His Spaceman persona grew to even more epic proportions in a sci-fi fantasy movie, video games, and through the pages of Marvel Comics and other publications. The larger-than-life cosmic super hero delivered humanity from the clutches of evil just like the Avengers, Justice League, or Fantastic Four.  

KISS Gives Dallas Fans Their Money’s Worth Plus More

If it’s at all possible to perform an intimate set for 20,000 fans, KISS did it on July 13, 2014 at the Gexa Energy Pavilion in Dallas, Texas. As a longtime fan of the “Hottest Band in the World,” there was something unique about their set that night. Not that the band has ever shown anything different to their legion of fans, but there was an even higher level of sincerity in the voice of Paul Stanley as he addressed the audience.

KISS Conquers the Gexa Energy Pavilion in Dallas, TX on July...

I know many people come to Cinelinx.com and wonder why a movie and video game website is covering a rock band. Well KISS isn't JUST a rock band. Since their first appearance in Howard the Duck #12 in 1977, the hottest band in the world has fought off creatures from different worlds and transformed into different bodies and species to battle against the forces of evil in the universe. They also appeared in their own movie in which they fended off the "Attack of the Phantoms." I would say that cult classic film and 37 years of comic book history gives KISS the right to be on Cinelinx.com.

KISS 40 Revels in Four Decades of Glamour, Glitz, and Gore

2014 is a landmark year for the Hottest Band in the World. KISS started the year off by being inducted into the Rock 'N' Roll Hall of Fame and announcing a tour that will take them across the United States. Not a bad way to kick off the celebration of forty years of makeup, mayhem, and magic. The group now releases a new compilation album featuring one song off of every studio, compilation, and live album. They top it off with a few commercially unreleased tracks that will get their army even more heated up and ready to party with the band in a concert venue somewhere.

KISS was recently inducted into the Rock 'N' Roll Hall of Fame after forty years of hard work, blood, sweat, and tears. Unlike other bands, not all of their current and former associates were asked to share the honor. The Hall of Fame only awarded original members Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Ace Frehley, and Peter Criss in the ceremony which took place on April 10, 2014.

KISS Appears on TV for the First Time 40 Years Ago

While celebrating the debut of KISS's Self-titled album is definitely important, we can't forget an event that gave millions of Americans their first glimpse of the band's unique style and strutting charisma they've become known for over the past forty years. The super group made their first national live appearance for ABC's "In Concert" on March 29th, 1974. The lives of millions of people were about to be forever impacted by a raw rock'n'roll beast.
