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.
Imagine the Fourth of July colliding with New Year’s Eve set to the score of one of the biggest and best band’s in history; KISS. Over their 45+ year career.
Tommy Thayer is a longtime Epiphone Signature Artist and helped design both the Ltd. Ed. Tommy Thayer “White Lightning” and the Ltd. Ed. “Spaceman” Les Pauls
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.
