Rock News Story Of The Year No. 1: KISS
In March, Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider slammed KISS for its reuse of original makeup by non-original band members Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer.
Thayer dresses in original lead guitarist Ace Frehley’s makeup and stage outfits while Singer does the same with original drummer Peter Criss’ gear, while each perform songs by their counterparts.
“I don’t see how people could accept this,” says Snider. “Tommy Thayer? I’m sorry. It’s insulting. Not only did he play with a tribute band of Kiss, he’s imitating Ace in his entire act!”
Check out what else Snider had to say in the No. 1 hennemusic story of 2015 on KISS here.
