Re: It's KISS mocking time again

Oddly enough,- to underline the points above, even though Slade didn't mean much in America they did have a huge influence on early KISS. Both Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley had seen them and have always acknowledge that the Slade thing of having big, shoutalong choruses and hooks, plus the flamboyant Slade presentation was definitely something they aspired to when getting KISS off the ground.

I can certainly hear Slade in some of KISS's early metal-pop anthems- the dumb-but-actually-clever thing is there.

And one man's 'ridiculous' is another man's "coooool!"
