Not really lol. I've been on top of Download rumours since 04 and can never remember KISS being rumoured. And its from so many sources as well. I'm pretty optimistic!

Kiss...I know nothing about them at all, but they've got to be worth seeing, right?

I think their best stuff is from before Dynasty with Dressed to Kill being my favourite

Does anyone know what stuff they'll play live? Not too much of the later stuff I hope but we'll be there if they come over

The last few tours suggest a songlist mostly from KISS through to Dynasty...with 2-3 songs from albums after that.

I guess hoping for a new album this year is too much to ask?

Not for the same day no. Efestivals also have Lordi on an unspecified day....that'd be cool.

It's terrible bud, you can tell Gene rushed it out for Xmas, nothing you probably haven't got already (like me).
I actually sold mine!!

Vol 2 was by far the best, and the little easter egg after the credits had my crying like a baby

Fair play to them for releasing Vol 3 as it was though as you can see some terrible mistakes like the screw up on the first number on the first night of the reunion tour, plus on the US tour that they had the statue of liberty half the face has fallen off before it was suppose to and you can see how ****** Gene is lol.

Get in! Never seen Ace before, the only time I saw Kiss live was in 1992. The below is taken from the Corporation website - I'm assuming that it's just general stuff about him from his Kiss days, or does he actually wear the Kiss make-up and do all the pyro on his solo gigs? (for Ł18.50, he should do )



Known as the "Celestial One", "Mr. Excitement" or simply to the legions of KISS fans as the Spaceman, Ace Frehley with his impressive lead guitar riffs and stinging vibrato has been a major influence on rock guitar for over two decades. Artists such as Pantera's Dimebag Darrel, and Skid Row have named him as in influence. Ace also creates excitement onstage with his spaceman persona with his 6 foot , one inch, 175 lb frame staggering around the stage, his knees bent, and his back arched, totally aloof from his surroundings. He is of course also known for his stage theatrics, which include the burning guitar during his solo which is then put on a wire and sent up into the air, and then he gets another guitar with a rocket launcher and shoots rockets.
