The big difference between same old same old and ‘wow’ is the energy the band still put into the show. Strictly they could continue to do this for another decade but by bowing out now, they go out in style.
2017 is lining up to be a very exciting year for The Dives. Currently putting the finishing touches to their debut EP, due out later in 2017. The band will be touring throughout the year, and kick this off with their debut UK headline show as well as supporting KISS across the UK in May 2017.
KISS still reminds us all that it is okay to be old school, it is fine to still wear make up on stage, and it is perfectly acceptable to try to be a “God of Thunder and Rock and Roll”.
It’s been quite a while since my latest DVD review, so I thought it would be cool to do another one. Yesterday I watched the documentary “Forever And A Day”. It documents the farewell tour of Germany’s biggest Hard Rock export, Scorpions. The movie was released in some cinemas in conjunction with the release of the new album “Return To Forever”. I will discuss whether or not this was a smart move in this review.
At one of his recent book signings in Ridgewood, NJ on April 10th, fans waited up to 5 hours to meet the Starchild. As the anticipation rose the line grew, wrapping around the block totaling over 300 hard core Kiss fans
However, I’m not such a blind fan that I can’t see/hear when a band makes a misstep or two musically. I’ve been pretty clear on the fact that I’ve not entirely loved a KISS album since Hot In the Shade, though Carnival of Souls was a pretty good album in that it was a different sound for them. Revenge I found to be pretty good, but there was enough on there to make me not love it entirely (I’m sorry, but I hate the song “Domino,” among others on it) that it’s just not held in high regards as it is for so many other fans.
