Why you are 100% wrong about THE KISS DIGITAL ERA

Post by Roland Rockover »

In the vast and ever-evolving symphony of musical exploration, a truly revolutionary and captivating notion beckons – the enigmatic rock legends, KISS, poised at the threshold of a paradigm shift, contemplating a transcendent leap into the realm of digital avatars for their live performances. Imagine, if you will, the metamorphosis of their iconic makeup, the theatrical stage presence, and the explosive pyrotechnics into ethereal digital entities, where pixels and bytes become the medium for an electrifying and visually stunning sonic spectacle. The contemporary zeitgeist, marked by the confluence of technological prowess and artistic innovation, presents an unparalleled moment for KISS to transcend the confines of their mortal forms and embark on a pioneering odyssey within the uncharted territories of the virtual performance landscape.

As we embark on this whimsical odyssey of imagination, envisage Gene Simmons' mythical tongue as a virtual marvel, a dynamic presence that defies the laws of physics, thriving in the boundless expanse of the digital domain. Picture Paul Stanley's Star Child persona pulsating with luminescent energy, intricately synchronized with the rhythmic beats of a myriad of virtual drums. The digital avatars, unshackled from the relentless march of time, would revel in the liberty to traverse the limitless realms of imagination with an unparalleled agility, transcending the physical constraints of the mortal stage.

Now, why entertain such an ostensibly illogical venture, one might ponder? Allow me to unfurl the myriad possibilities that unfold in the wake of this fantastical transition. Freed from the limitations of physical reality, the digital incarnation of KISS could transcend geographical boundaries, performing in otherworldly landscapes that seamlessly shift from pixelated mountains to neon-lit cyberpunk cityscapes. The concert experience, therefore, transforms into a multisensory symphony, an intricate interplay of the analog and the digital, the tangible and the intangible, creating an immersive audio-visual odyssey that transcends the conventional concert paradigm.

Moreover, the advent of technology beckons forth the democratization of access. Envision fans from every corner of the globe, irrespective of geographical location or financial constraints, virtually attending these ethereal performances. The virtual arenas would swell with avatars representing diverse cultures, united by the universal language of rock. In essence, a global KISS army, liberated from the constraints of physical attendance, could collectively revel in the transcendent sonic majesty of the digital age, forging a connection that spans continents and resonates across the cultural tapestry of humanity.

While skeptics may scoff at this proposition as a mere flight of fancy, let us delve into the trajectory of technology – the ascent of virtual reality, the convergence of artificial intelligence with entertainment. The digital avatars of KISS could become trailblazers, pioneers navigating through uncharted territory where the boundaries between reality and fiction blur into a seamless fusion, akin to the wisps of a spectral fog.

In this digital dreamscape, KISS would not fade into obscurity in the way that long forgotten bands like Tuff and indeed Metal Sludge itself as an entity has. Rather, like phoenixes rising from the ashes, they would embrace the zeitgeist of the 21st century. The allure of nostalgia would intertwine harmoniously with the novelty of the digital frontier, creating a symbiotic fusion that transcends generations and resonates with both the seasoned aficionados and the emerging enthusiasts of rock music.

So, as we stand at the crossroads of reality and imagination, let us wholeheartedly entertain the notion that the time is ripe for KISS to cast off the shackles of the mortal coil and embrace their digital avatars. In doing so, they would not merely adapt to the times; they would redefine them, etching an indelible mark on the annals of musical history. The future is digital, and the moment for KISS to embark on this surreal journey, challenging the boundaries of art and technology, is now, beckoning them to be the avant-garde trailblazers of a new era in music.

That's more waffle than I can be bothered with on a Sunday. Could you try and express yourself without all the layers of bullshit? Is this just a desperate attempt to justify paying these fucknuckles stupid amounts of money to watch a projection and listen to a recording? They can fuck right off with that shit.

Theres only so much slimming an all black costume can do. Portly bassists need to know that there is a limit to the slimming capabilities of an all-black stage wardrobe.

Yes. Once Gene went off to try his hand at acting they shouldve folded up the tent. They needed to reintroduce the makeup just to dig out of the financial hole they were in from all the failed albums and tours.

Bassists should realise that black glittery leotards and black waistcoats can only do so much when it comes to masking the fat belly of a body whose only physical exercise is carrying an axe shaped bass and boots with a skull on on them.

They have no special abilities and aren't up to any challenges.
They're mediocre musicians at best.
They farmed fields that were already plowed.

You're prolly right.

Here's my GPT essay about it.



The KISS digital era is a bold and innovative move by the legendary rock band to extend their legacy and reach new audiences in the 21st century. Contrary to what some critics may claim, this is not a betrayal of their fans or a sign of their decline, but rather a creative and visionary way of adapting to the changing times and technologies. In this essay, I will argue that the KISS digital era is a positive and exciting development that will benefit both the band and their loyal followers.

First of all, the KISS digital era is a logical and natural progression of the band's history and identity. KISS has always been known for their theatrical and spectacular live shows, featuring elaborate costumes, makeup, pyrotechnics, and stage props. They have also experimented with different genres and styles throughout their career, from disco to metal to grunge. The band has never been afraid to reinvent themselves and try new things, and the digital era is just another example of that. By creating digital avatars of themselves, KISS is not abandoning their original personas, but rather enhancing and immortalizing them. They are also staying true to their motto of "the hottest band in the world", as they will be able to perform in any venue, any time, and any place, without any physical limitations or constraints.

Secondly, the KISS digital era is a smart and strategic move by the band to expand their fanbase and generate more revenue. KISS is already one of the most successful and influential bands of all time, with over 100 million albums sold worldwide and countless awards and honors. However, they are also aware of the challenges and opportunities that the digital age presents. By creating digital avatars of themselves, KISS is tapping into the huge and growing market of virtual entertainment, which includes video games, streaming platforms, social media, and augmented reality. They are also appealing to younger and more diverse audiences, who may not be familiar with their music or legacy, but who are interested in the novelty and interactivity of the digital era. KISS is also creating new sources of income, as they will be able to license their digital avatars to various partners and platforms, and sell exclusive merchandise and content to their fans.

Thirdly, the KISS digital era is a generous and respectful gesture by the band to their loyal and devoted fans, who have supported them for over five decades. KISS has always had a special relationship with their fans, whom they call the KISS Army, and who are known for their passion and dedication. KISS has always appreciated and rewarded their fans, by giving them memorable and interactive live shows, by involving them in their creative decisions, and by creating a sense of community and belonging among them. By creating digital avatars of themselves, KISS is not abandoning or replacing their fans, but rather giving them a gift and a tribute. They are giving them the opportunity to enjoy their music and performances in new and exciting ways, and to be part of their digital legacy and future. They are also honoring their fans' wishes and expectations, as they have repeatedly expressed their desire to see KISS continue on as a band, even after their retirement from touring.

In conclusion, the KISS digital era is a brilliant and admirable initiative by the legendary rock band to extend their legacy and reach new audiences in the 21st century. It is not a betrayal of their fans or a sign of their decline, but rather a creative and visionary way of adapting to the changing times and technologies. The KISS digital era is a positive and exciting development that will benefit both the band and their loyal followers, as it will enhance and immortalize their personas, expand their fanbase and generate more revenue, and give them a gift and a tribute. Therefore, you are 100% wrong about the KISS digital era, and you should embrace and celebrate it, as it is the ultimate expression of the band's motto: "You wanted the best, you got the best!"

Thayer went on to say that he got "emotional" at the end of the night. "I saw a lot of people out there with tears in their eyes," he said. "Gosh, Sebastian Bach [former SKID ROW singer], I saw him about ten rows out [in the audience]. He was bawling his eyes out.

Someone needs to ChatGPT a song combining the worst of KISS' 80's lyrics about street hustlers, logs in fireplaces, putting the X in sex, etc. into one song. And then have the new avatars sing it.
