My Life. My Music. Your Voyeurism.

This is where it all began…

This is the album that first got me interested in hard rock/heavy metal…when I was 5!

I remember my brother bringing this home on vinyl in 1975 and he let me look at it for a little bit. I’m pretty sure he borrowed it from TR or Scotty from across the street. I know he didn’t buy it as money was always pretty tight. I asked him why they looked liked clowns all dressed up. I think he said something like, “Just shut up and listen to it.” So i did.

Wow. What was this? I never heard anything like this on AM radio. I was hooked. Of course at that age I didn’t understand much of what they were talking about but I loved it. Learned every word as best as I could.

While this isn’t anywhere near my favorite KISS album, it is definitely the one that made me a hard rocker. My faves on here include Room Service, Rock Bottom, She and C’mon and Love Me. I never did like Rock And Roll All Night. Blech!

So there it is. Blame KISS.

  2. good post!

    KISS got me in grade school.

    I have some old pics when I was even 5-7 listening to their 8 tracks on my fathers stereo system with some big-ass OLD school headphones!

    I looked like I was a piloting a small plane while listening!
