Right? I wasn't prepared to agree with Gene Simmons today.

It's like finding out Axl Rose was ardently anti-Trump. It's such a "huh!" moment that makes you feel a little bad about prejudging them.

I prefer to think Gene is an artisanal asshole, and scoffs at these trend-following amateurs.

Yup, that's definitely our eumaas … :shifty:

With Simmons, you go with what Deep Throat said: follow the money. And a pandemic fucks with the KISS revenue machine. The sooner the virus is controlled (or as close as it'll ever be controlled), the sooner he can get back to lightening wallets.

Pretty much. He's savvy enough to know there's no long term money in anti-mask/anti-vax for him.

Digging deeper into their fruitful 80s period:

I missed one shot in the beginning of the video and was so damn confused. Basically the chick decides to burn Paul's car, but then there are shots of her in a towel dancing in a mirror. Rewatched and figured out she's mad at Paul. Probably for the VD.

Anyway, the song is okay for the standards of monster ballads of the day. Some interesting key changes between the minor key verse, major key chorus. There are better ones out there, but worse too. The fashion isn't too ridiculous compared to their other videos at the time.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

I read this paragraph to the Boss; she chortled.

I'm not sure I can think of a single metal ballad that I don't loathe. Just wretched, stinky cheese by form.

I'm the board Warrant apologist, so I have a remarkable acceptance of this style.

I want it known that while I’m an occasional metal apologist, metal ballads are godawful. I’m here for the headbanging, not some fucking thorny rose or silent lucidity.
