.By all means like KISS but don't make anything of them beyond being a successful pop metal band who have been treading the same boards since '78 bar the odd [in both senses of the word]career diversion.
Er.. "By all means...?" Is that some sort of 'permission' being granted?
Actually, why can I not do that? If they are a reasonably important band to me, which they are, why can I not place them on level of personal importance that might not converge with your appraisal? Are there forms to fill in or something?
They are one thing to me, something else to you, and the world keeps spinning!
