NRK.no recently spoke with KISS' GENE SIMMONS where he discussed fans' biggest fear for some years now - that KISS are indeed planning to keep KISS running and touring after founders PAUL STANLEY and GENE SIMMONS decide to take off the make-up for good.

During a familiar rant by Simmons about how KISS could go on forever, NRK's journalist asked jokingly if the band would consider looking for replacements for Simmons and Stanley in a tv-show, on the model of American Idol. "We have already signed the contract, and it is going to go through in a couple of months" was Simmons' reply.

Co-founder PAUL STANLEY was not very happy to hear about his bandmate's statement regarding KISS' future. "These things are typical. Gene says something as if it was a fact, but there is no signed deal. The future has many possibilities. Will it happen next week? No! Am I opposed to the idea? Of course not" he retorted. Paul also stated that the members of VELVET REVOLVER were planning a similar stunt to find the replacement for lead singer Scott Weiland, who was fired at the end of the band's European tour earlier this year. However, the band decided not to do it, according to Stanley, because of Slash' wish to remain cool and credible to his fans. "I don’t have to be that cool", Stanley smiles.



Oh dear, oh dear

Whilst they didn't hold a contest as such, VR did film themselves looking for a singer originally - it's actually a good watch

I'm really hoping KISS don't go ahead with it. Though Gene's love of the $$$ means anything is possible

Coming in summer 2008.... KISS MY ANKH: A Tribute To Vinnie Vincent


While not my favourite KISS guitarist (nobody can ever beat Ace ) Vinnie did write some great songs, and I even like his solo stuff.

Another tribute album to add to the list

He pretty much came in and saved the band after all that disco stuff, which was fun but not really the right thing for a rock band.

Ace was right about Music From The Elder, if it had been a straight rock album it would have put them back on course but Bob Ezrin thought he knew better. That might have worked for Pink Floyd's The Wall, but not for Kiss.

Oh dear. Been a bad lad again has he?

BTW I hated Vinnie Vincent. I saw him stamping on peoples hands at Newcastle. True, they were trying to drag him offstage. I remember Gene looking across at him and shaking his head.

DefSTAR Records/Sony Music Japan is releasing KISS JIGOKU-RETSUDEN, a new KISS Greatest Hits CD featuring all new recording of 15 KISS Classics! The tracks were recently recorded and feature Paul, Gene, Eric and Tommy. The CD is scheduled to be released in Japan on August 27. A Limited Edition version of the CD is also being released, and includes a bonus KISSOLOGY Special DVD with live footage from KISS' legendary 1977 performance at BUDOKAN.

JIGOKU-RETSUDEN - NEW RECORDINGS CD:

1. DEUCE
2. DETROIT ROCK CITY
3. SHOUT IT OUT LOUD
4. HOTTER THAN HELL
5. CALLING DR.LOVE
6. LOVE GUN
7. I WAS MADE FOR LOVIN' YOU
8 .HEAVEN'S ON FIRE
9. LICK IT UP
10. I LOVE IT LOUD
11. FOREVER
12. CHRISTINE SIXTEEN
13. DO YOU LOVE ME
14. BLACK DIAMOND
15. ROCK AND ROLL ALL NITE




Yet ANOTHER greatest hits CD . At least this one is different in the fact that they are all new recordings.

Bit much to ask that they recorded some new tracks while they were in the studio

I'm not a big fan of it either...and it's probably the song their most well known for over here too, and gets 90% of the airplay whenever a UK radio station plays a KISS song
