Alive 2 version has the most energy, Paul's demo was interesting and gives some idea of where he saw the song going but there is no doubt Ezrin was 100% correct to give it to Gene.

The Destroyer probably is the darkest version of the song with the FX added but the Alive 4 version is just turgid.

Not the greatest song in the world maybe but it has stood the test of time and outlasted all Gene's other anthems such as War Machine so I guess that says something.

Re-watch the version on your copy of the Sydney '80 video. Probably my personal fave version of all-time. With the wind blowing the dry-ice fog and flames, Gene (likely) crapping his codpiece as he's jerked above the stage like a rag doll, and the drum solo from Eric, it's evil. With all due respect to Vim and Bad News, that night KISS were the four horsemen of the rock apocalypse.

"F**k off Bad News!" LOL!

You're spot on though. The '79-'80 versions of GoT were cool too. When and where did it all go wrong for this song?

Reunion?
