As per last year, the 2005 UK KISS Expo
DVD is now documented on DVD thanks to Nige from kissexpo.co.uk.
This year the DVD is presented very
nicely with a cool new menu and some nice packaging including printing
on the DVD itself. The thing you can here rattling around the case is
also worth mentioning - this year you get a free KISS Expo plectrum worth 3
quid (don't let Gene see the logo Nige!!!).
Okay, so what about the DVD itself,
like I mentioned the menu has been nicely tarted up this year - there's 4
Adams set list includes Detroit Rock City & Firehouse.
This has to be one of the weirdest KISS covers ever, they cover 3 songs
- Deuce, Love Gun and War Machine. The reggae version of Love Gun is
really cool, check out their bagpipe solo!
Dressed To Kill
This includes the full set played by Dressed To Kill, which was of
course fantastic as usual (complete with new Ace & Peter from HTH).
Eric also gets on stage to play a few songs including Do You Love Me,
Parasite and Deuce
Eric Singer Q&A
30-odd minutes of questions with Eric Singer, and like last year with
the brilliant man himself - Iain Lee. Eric answers questions from the audience
including why he missed Pauls wedding, his worst KISS cd (check out his
T-shirt for the answer) and playing on Unplugged, plus a whole lot more.
Overall this is well worth getting, especially if
(like me) you missed out on
the expo. Throughout the DVD a tripod has been used for filming no shaking or
anything and a full stage view throughout. There's very little zooming or
panning though, and the sound gets a little distorted but nothing major.
Also, I have to point
out is that I had trouble getting it to work in my Sony player, not
entirely sure why, maybe the disk was dirty or something (it did work
