I agree. I just find the discussions of the various bands, by people I respect, to be interesting - although sometimes baffling, but always interesting. I hope you hopeless Kiss apologists will allow me a little leeway, but to me, to come out and tell the World you began playing guitar because of Kiss at age 8 is like a beloved actor telling people he decided to study Shakespeare and go to New York and study under Elia Kazan because he saw The Three Stooges or Bugs Bunny at age 8. You are, with all due respect, assigning too much importance because kids, even precocious, prodigal kids, are still just little kids.
