We put Mr Speed, Take Me & Magic Touch into our set this weekend and the complete blank look on peoples faces when we played them was conclusion enough that Paul is right to say people only want the greatest hits.
A room full of "fans" all wearing kiss t-shirts not knowing certain kiss songs is ample reason for us to conclude we'll only play a greatest hits show next time we play that venue so I can see exactly where PS is coming from.
It may please 20 or 30 hard core fans in the audience if kiss played the elder from start to finish but not the other 99% of the audience & its that 99% who kiss are actually playing to. I hate to break it to all those masturbating frantically over the fact they played Sweet Pain & Flaming Youth or Room Service & the whole of Unmasked in rehearsals / soundcheck. These will be used in the m&g's.
And personally I think 3 songs from Monster is far too many.
Blank look ... Magic Touch , not from me there wasn't ..!!
