Andrew Jacobs here,
Like pretty much everything else, I joined the KISS Army much later in life than most. Of course, being born in 1970, I was well aware of KISS by the late ‘70s. However, that whole “Knights In Satan’s Service” thing (hard to believe but that shit worked!) scared me way too much to attempt any of their records back then.
Fast forward to October 18, 1993.
Among the CDs that I got in the mail that day from the BMG Compact Disc Club (they used to have those 12 CDs for a penny deals) was KISS’ Double Platinum. A few spins of that and I was forever a member of the KISS Army. My first marching order was, of course, to purchase every single KISS album that had been released up to that point. I decided to begin with Love Gun. And because of that, it will forever have a special place in my heart.
Which brings me to the whole point of this post.
The fine fellows at PodKISSt recently did a spectacular two part (or side, rather) round table discussion of all things Love Gun. Please give it a listen. Did I mention that it’s spectacular?
