Six O’Clock Triple Shot – 2/18/15 Kiss Release First LP
(The Six O'Clock Triple Shot is a daily feature of three songs that share a common theme, heard weeknights on 94.9 WMMQ)
We travel back in time again tonight, looking back 41 years in Rock 'n' Roll history. Kiss released their debut LP February 18, 1974. The LP was recorded in the fall of 1973, after Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley left their original band Wicked Lester. They teamed up with Bronx gangster and guitarist Ace Frehley and drummer Peter Criss, previously with the band called Chelsea. The LP yielded three singles: "Nothin' To Lose", "Kissin' Time", and "Strutter", though all of the songs became concert staples...especially "Cold Gin", "Deuce", "100,000 Years", and "Black Diamond". The album also featured all four band members taking a turn as lead vocalist at least once.
Tonight, we will hear three from "Kiss". Tune in for "Strutter", "Cold Gin", and "Black Diamond". It's tonight's Six O'Clock Triple Shot on 94.9 WMMQ!
