There is always something to the ritual of getting up and putting the record on the platter and gently placing the needle down on the edge of the record, sitting down, and listening to the best sounds of the music. As I have said, the carnival has just begun, and the music is the fun!
Stanley, Simmons, and former bandmates Frehley and Criss reunited in 1995 to the surprise of fans sitting in on the recording of the band's KISS Unplugged album and television program. Frehley and Criss sat in for a few songs along with Stanley, Simmons, and then current drummer, Eric Singer, and lead guitarist, Bruce Kulick. The reunion was so well received that the four original members decided to get back together and go on a highly successful two year reunion tour.
This lead up to the recording and release of Psycho Circus. Frehley's "Space Ace" and Criss' "Catman" images were on the album cover, but much like the last few albums that featured the duo before their individual exits, their actual musical contributions were very limited.
Criss played drums on only one song. Kevin Valentine, who worked with KISS on Revenge, played the drums on the rest of the album. Ace Frehley recorded guitar tracks for two of the album's songs, but the rest of his string duties were recorded by his eventual replacement in the band and current "Spaceman," Tommy Thayer.
Considering these factors, Psycho Circus managed to turn into a decent album that has managed to remain one of KISS' heaviest albums to date.Read more ›
