So. True confession time. Ready? OK. Here goes: How many hours have YOU spent staring at the cover of the “Alive!” album? It sucks you in, just like the album does.

Well, folks… they say that time flies when you’re having fun, and for KISS fans this is certainly applicable. It’s hard to believe that 25 years have passed since KISS released the “Creatures of the Night” album… and yet, when I think back on what else was going on back then, it does seem like […]
