KISS - Invasion (review by
Jelle Jansen / Kiss Related Recordings)
The most interesting part of this DVD release is the uncut version
Night Flight interview (taped January 1983), which runs about 55
Before the interview with KISS (Vinnie, Paul, Gene and Eric)
actually starts, the band jokes around a bit, waiting until the crew
is finished ...
After about 5 minutes the interview actually starts; topics include
"The early days, forming KISS", highlights and stories about their
early live performances, The recording of "Creatures of The Night",
Peter Criss decision to leave the band, Ace Frehley, Eric Carr's
audition, the writing process with Vinnie Vincent, the auditions for
a new guitar player after Ace Frehley left ...and so on.
Personally my favorite part of the interview is when the Gene
Simmons is asked about his relationship with Diana Ross ... In some
way Gene seems not sure how to respond ... and starts singing "It's
My Life" (the song KISS demoed for "Creatures" and later appeared on
Wendy O'Williams 1984 album ... Than Paul Stanley takes over, making
clear with explaining the difference between the band KISS and the
value of having a private life besides KISS ...
The second chapter is a Q&A session with Vinnie Vincent, taped by a
private cam at the Atlanta (?) Kiss Expo, March 1996.
Topics during the 19 minute interview are the release of the
Euphoria EP, The 1989 signing with Enigma Records for "Guitars
From Hell", Vinnie's introduces his wife Diane, music
influences, Flying V guitars, Meeting Gene Simmons for the first
time ...(note : Vinnie suggests it was early 1981, but that
probably was early 1982), the writing and recording process of
the "Creatures Of Night" album... The Ankh make up design, working
with KISS again in 1991 / 1992 for the "Revenge" album ...
The third and final chapter is edited version of the
Night Flight interview (taped January 1983), and runs about 10
