Kiss - Live in '75

I've never been particularly impressed with Kiss, both as a studio band (I find a lot of their recordings pretty clunky) and as a live band (since it seemed that they relied heavily on the makeup, pyro and other tricks). But this clip from early 75 at the Winterland Ballroom is pretty badass.

It's clear that Paul Stanley is the key to their onstage energy, since Gene Simmons seems to have two moves and Ace comes from the "stroll around" school of rock guitar. Paul, meanwhile, jumps around, headbangs and windmills like crazy - good stuff!

I should say I like it in black and white too - gives it a little creepy mistique.

The Boss has a new album, "Magic," coming out on October 2.

The lead single, Radio Nowhere is available as a free download on iTunes. It's no Born to Run, but a solid song.

More exciting is the news that Bruce and the E Street Band will be going on tour this fall, with four dates in the area:

  • October 9-10 East Rutherford, N.J., Continental Airlines Arena

  • October 17-18 New York, N.Y., Madison Square Garden

Both the MSG and CAA shows go on sale September 10

Farther afield, Albany, Hartford and Philadelphia are also stops on the tour, for when NYC and East Rutherford sell out instantly.
