This song, which has always been one of my favorites, just started playing in my head. I immediately had to hear the whole song! It's one of the best ever written. Back when the songs and the bands were at their best!
It still seems strange seeing videos of them performing out of makeup, especially Gene Simmons. The tongue thing somehow doesn't seem to have the effect. Regardless of the lineup, the songs, makeup and costumes will keep them alive forever!!
I love that song! I remember being about 11-12 years old singing my lungs out with the radio (and my 45) to this song. The funny thing is I had no knowledge of the "afternoon delight" meaning of the song. Now I laugh when I hear it and think about it. Also, thanks to this YouTube video, I finally know what they looked like. To me, sort of ABBA-ish. WOW!!
As a longtime KISS fan, I think it's a shame that this this a even an issue. Personally, I think it should be Gene, Paul, Peter and Ace only. But if it means performing for the fans, especially for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, then let them all be included. However, I think having 2 "Spacemen" and 2 "Catmen" would be embarrassing and ridiculous. At least performing without make-up would not be as bad.
I completely agree. I've been a KISS fan since '75, and this is just downright embarrassing. I thought maybe one song with the original four, then one song with all members. No makeup. Ridiculous childish behavior.
