1 KISS樂隊 -概況

KISS樂隊Kiss樂隊是1972年由Paul.Stanley(節奏吉他,生於1950年1月20日)和Gene.Simmons(貝司,生於1949年8月25日)組建,同時吸收了Peter.Criss(鼓手,生於1945年12月20日)和Ace.Frehley(主音吉他,生於1950年4月21日)。  

1973年樂隊在曼哈頓的外交官飯店進行第2場演出時同剛成立的Casablanca唱片公司簽約。此後的1年中,樂隊發行了3張專輯,獲得了小的成功。1975年夏的專輯《Alive》的發行給KISS帶來了好運,該專輯帶給樂隊第1首熱門歌曲《Rock n' Roll All Nite》。  

KISS的魅力體現場演出上,他們艷麗的化裝,花哨的服飾,令人眼花繚亂的舞台效果,再加上硬搖滾的音樂,創造了廣告上說的「天下最棒的搖滾演出」。現場演出的成功使唱片銷量大幅上升,《Alive!》在美國達到白金銷量。  


1974年,專輯《Destroyer》同樣成功,產生了樂隊第10首排行榜前10的歌曲。Peter.Criss還因非同一般的敘事曲《Beth》獲得作曲獎。接下來的專輯《Rock and Roll Over》、《Love Gun》和《Alive2》使KISS成為具有重要影響的樂隊。蓋落普民意測驗表明,KISS已經排在美國最受人愛戴的流行藝人榜前列。他們已經成為時常追逐的目標,有關KISS的商品有化妝品、棋類遊戲用品、面具和彈子機。「奇迹」電影公司甚至還拍攝了一部《KISS與公園幽靈》的科幻電影。KISS ARMY成員超過了10萬人。

1978年,樂隊4名成員每人錄製了一張個人專輯,並在同一天發行,這是空前絕後的壯舉。  

1979年樂隊發行了專輯《Dynasty》,其中有著名的《I Was Made For Lovin' You》。這時樂隊出現裂縫,Peter.Criss離隊,由Anton.Fig暫時補缺。Anton.Fig在1980年發行的專輯《Unmasked》中打鼓,在1980年夏季巡演中的鼓手成了Eric Carr,Eric Carr及時加入樂隊中來了。

1981 年樂隊發行了專輯《Music From the Elder》,其中風格多樣。這是一次大膽的嘗試,但並未引起唱片買主的興趣

1982年,Ace.Frehley對樂隊方向產生不滿,之後Ace Frehley也離隊了。作為樂隊中技術最棒的吉他手離開了,無疑給KISS樂隊造成重創。替代他的是另一位80年代初期赫赫有名的吉他手Vinnie Vincent(後來離開KISS后自己組建了VINNIE VINCENT INVASION,80年代晚期著名的SLAUGHTER樂隊中有兩個核心人物都是從這個樂隊出來的)。其實早在錄製The Elder的時候,Ace的心思已經不在KISS樂隊了,因為他認為KISS應該做那種結結實實的搖滾樂而不是去搞什麼歌劇搖滾,在勉強協助樂隊完Creature Of The Night之後,Ace Frehley就離開了樂隊。新的吉他手Vinnie在技術上和Ace有一定的區別,他的吉他效果一般沒有Ace Frehley重,但是加的花多一些,速度也快一些,而且開放和弦運用較多,這樣聽起來更「現代」一些(也就是說,更象80年代流行金屬的吉他效果了)。

在MTV電視上,樂隊去掉了使用了10年之久的並被認為是樂隊標誌的臉譜。Vinnie Vincent 在專輯《Lick it Up》中正式露面,該專輯產生了第一首英國排行榜前10的歌曲。復活的樂隊繼續錄製專輯《animalize》。

1984年,剛到樂隊中的Vinnie Vincent也離開樂隊,即後來自己組建的樂隊VINNIE VINCENT INVASION。Mark St. John這時候加入KISS,而Mark St. John沒呆多久就離開KISS,Bruce Kulick在KISS的1984年10月份的Animalize巡演中加入KISS,Bruce Kulick相當的優秀,絲毫不遜與Ace Frehley。順便提一下Bob Kulick是Bruce Kulick的弟弟,Bob Kulick在Paul.Stanley的1978那邊個人專集中擔任吉他,Bob Kulick曾經也給W.A.S.P任過吉他手。

1987年,專輯《Asylum》和《Crazy Nights》使樂隊繼續獲得商業上的成功。後者有3首歌曲進入英國榜前40名,其中《Crazy Nights》排名第4。繼第3張精選輯《Smashes Thrashes and Hits》后,專輯《Hot in the Shade》產生了美國排行榜第4的歌曲「Forever」。1991年11月24日,41歲的Eric.Carr由於癌症在紐約離開人世。專輯《Revenge》的錄製工作受阻,Eric.Singer,Alica Cooper前鼓手,頂替Eric.Carr的位置。該專輯在1992年出版后獲得成功,是1989年的專輯后再次進入排行榜前10的專輯。1993年,他們又推出了《Alive3》。  

1996年KISS樂隊創始成員Gene.Simmons、Paul.Stanley、Ace.Frehley和Peter.Criss重組再加上Eric.Singer和Bruce Kulick,在MTV錄製MTV Unplugged(MTV 不插電)。之後KISS樂隊又恢復成創始成員 Gene.Simmons、Paul.Stanley、Ace.Frehley。

1998年9月,重新聚齊的KISS樂隊出了新專集Psycho Circus,這張專集是自1979年後創始成員共同錄製的專集,並且著張專集還獲得了「格林美獎」的「Best Hard Rock Performance」提名。

2000年2月,KISS在菲尼克斯宣布KISS Farewell Tour 拉開序幕,在此後的一年多里,KISS在全球範圍內進行告別巡演,包括澳大利亞和日本,但在2001年1月份的時候Peter.Criss退出巡演,Eric.Singer接替Peter.Criss繼續巡演。

2002年,KISS成為美國#1金唱片記錄的冠軍!

2月24日,KISS在第十九屆鹽湖城冬季奧運會閉幕式在向全世界超過30億電視觀眾前登台表演。

同年3月份,Ace.Frehley退出樂隊,而Tommy.Thayer則接任Ace的位置。

2003年8月,新加入樂隊的吉他手Tommy.Thayer和重新回到樂隊的Peter.Criss的KISS樂隊到澳大利亞墨爾本舉行了一場規模浩大的交響樂演唱會,並且發行了現場DVD,即KISS Symphony Alive IV。

2004年,KISS樂隊又開始新的全球巡演,從澳大利亞的珀斯開始,Eric.Singer回到樂隊,之後KISS樂隊把在華盛頓那場演唱會出版了DVD。

2005之後,KISS基本上都在巡演。。。。

2 KISS樂隊 -英文介紹:



Kiss

Rooted in the campy theatrics of Alice Cooper and the sleazy hard rock of glam rockers the New York Dolls, Kiss became a favorite of American teenagers in the '70s. Most kids were infatuated with the look of Kiss, not their music. Decked out in outrageously flamboyant costumes and makeup, the band fashioned a captivating stage show featuring dry ice, smoke bombs, elaborate lighting, blood spitting, and fire breathing that captured the imaginations of thousands of kids. But Kiss' music shouldn't be dismissed -- it was a commercially potent mix of anthemic, fist-pounding hard rock driven by sleek hooks and ballads powered by loud guitars, cloying melodies, and sweeping strings. It was a sound that laid the groundwork for both arena rock and the pop-metal that dominated rock in the late '80s. Kiss was the brainchild of Gene Simmons (bass, vocals) and Paul Stanley (rhythm guitar, vocals), former members of the New York-based hard rock band Wicked Lester; the duo brought in drummer Peter Criss through his ad in Rolling Stone and guitarist Ace Frehley responded to an advertisement in The Village Voice. Even at their first Manhattan concert in 1973, the group's approach was quite theatrical; Flipside producer Bill Aucoin offered the band a management deal after the show. Two weeks later, the band was signed to Neil Bogart's fledgling record label, Casablanca. Kiss released their self-titled debut in February of 1974; it peaked at number 87 on the U.S. charts. By April of 1975, the group had released three albums and had toured America constantly, building up a sizable fan base. Culled from those numerous concerts, Alive! (released in the fall of 1975) made the band rock & roll superstars; it climbed into the Top Ten and its accompanying single, "Rock 'N' Roll All Nite," made it to number 12. Their follow-up, Destroyer, was released in March of 1976 and became the group's first platinum album; it also featured their first Top Ten single, Peter Criss' power ballad "Beth." A 1977 Gallup poll named Kiss the most popular band in America. Kiss mania was in full swing and thousands of pieces of merchandise hit the marketplace. The group had two comic books released by Marvel, pinball machines, makeup and masks, board games, and a live-action TV movie, Kiss Meet the Phantom of the Park. The group was never seen in public without wearing their makeup and their popularity was growing by leaps and bounds; the membership of the Kiss Army, the band's fan club, was now in the six figures. Even such enormous popularity had its limits, and the band reached them in 1978, when all four members released solo albums on the same day in October. Simmons' record was the most successful, reaching number 22 on the charts, yet all of them made it into the Top 50. Dynasty, released in 1979, continued their streak of platinum albums, yet it was their last recorded with the original lineup -- Criss left in 1980. Kiss Unmasked, released in the summer of 1980, was recorded with session drummer Anton Fig; Criss' permanent replacement, Eric Carr, joined the band in time for their 1980 world tour. Kiss Unmasked was their first record since Destroyer to fail to go platinum, and 1981's Music From the Elder, their first album recorded with Carr, didn't even go gold -- it couldn't even climb past number 75 on the charts. Ace Frehley left the band after its release; he was replaced by Vinnie Vincent in 1982. Vincent's first album with the group, 1982's Creatures of the Night, fared better than Music From the Elder, yet it couldn't make it past number 45 on the charts. Sensing it was time for a change, Kiss dispensed with their makeup for 1983's Lick It Up. The publicity worked, as the album became their first platinum record in four years. Animalize, released the following year, was just as successful, and the group had recaptured their niche. Vincent left after Animalize and was replaced by Mark St. John; St. John was soon taken ill with Reiter's Syndrome and left the band. Bruce Kulick became Kiss' new lead guitarist in 1984. For the rest of the decade, Kiss turned out a series of best-selling albums, culminating in the early 1990 hit ballad "Forever," which was their biggest single since "Beth." Kiss was scheduled to record a new album with their old producer, Bob Ezrin, in 1990 when Eric Carr became severely ill with cancer; he died in November of 1991 at the age of 41. Kiss replaced him with Eric Singer and recorded Revenge (1992), their first album since 1989; it was a Top Ten hit and went gold. Kiss followed it with the release of Alive III the following year; it performed respectably, but not up to the standards of their two previous live records. In 1996, the original lineup of Kiss -- featuring Simmons, Stanley, Frehley, and Criss -- reunited to perform an international tour, complete with their notorious makeup and special effects. The tour was one of the most successful of 1996, and in 1998 the reunited group issued Psycho Circus. While the ensuing tour in support of Psycho Circus was a success, sales of Kiss' reunion album weren't as stellar as anticipated. Reminiscent of the band's late-'70s unfocused period, few tracks on Psycho Circus featured all four members playing together (most tracks were supplemented with session musicians), as the band seemed more interested in flooding the marketplace with merchandise yet again instead of making the music their top priority. With rumors running rampant that the Psycho Circus Tour would be their last, the quartet announced in the spring of 2000 that they would be launching a U.S. farewell tour in the summer, which became one of the year's top concert draws. But on the eve of a Japanese and Australian tour in early 2001, Peter Criss suddenly left the band once again, supposedly discontent with his salary. Taking his place was previous Kiss drummer Eric Singer, who in a controversial move among some longtime fans, donned Criss' cat-man makeup (since Simmons and Stanley own both Frehley and Criss' makeup designs, there was no threat of a lawsuit) as the farewell tour continued. With the band scheduled to call it a day supposedly by late 2001, a mammoth career-encompassing box set was set for later in the year, while the summer saw perhaps the most over-the-top piece of Kiss merchandise yet -- the "Kiss Kasket." The group was relatively quiet through the rest of the year, but 2002 started with a bang as Gene Simmons turned in an entertaining and controversial interview on NPR where he criticized the organization and berated host Terry Gross with sexual comments and condescending answers. He was promoting his autobiography at the time, which also caused dissent in the Kiss camp because of the inflammatory remarks made towards Ace Frehley. Frehley was quite angry at the situation, leading to his no-showing of an American bandstand anniversary show. His place was taken by a wig-wearing Tommy Thayer, but no one was fooled and the band looked especially awful while pretending to play their instruments during the pre-recorded track. The appearance was an embarrassment for the group and for their fans, but Simmons was quick to dismiss the performance as another in a long series of money-oriented decisions. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine & Greg Prato, All Music Guide

其實這時期的陣容是非常非常的經典,可以說是僅次於原始陣容,Bruce Kulick和Eric Carr在這時期為樂隊進一步成功做出了巨大貢獻!但令人感到悲傷的是,1991年Eric Carr因癌症去世,Eric Carr,一個非常盡職的鼓手,一個令人感到敬佩的鼓手!無奈,似乎KISS也逃不出這厄運.現在只有無限懷念Eric Carr!!!
