    While I won't go so far as to say that KISS was the ONLY reason that I picked up the guitar, they were one of my earlier influences. I was born in 1971, and saw KISS for the first time in 1975 and still have my original KISS and Destroyer albums from then. I don't bust out the vinyl that often anymore, but still listen to those same songs from then and to my ears they still sound like how I remember rock and roll growing up.

    I mean, who can deny KISS Alive at BUDOKAN!! :twisted:

    I remember reading an article in the 90's, shortly after the original line up got back together, that listed how many modern rock guitar players who were giving credit to Ace as their inspiration for wanting to learn how to play guitar. And the sheer spectacle of the modern rock concert owes much to Kiss. Destroyer, Dressed to Kill, Love Gun - all great albums. They were a band that launched many kids to want to form a band, and their music was much more accessible to someone just starting out, in comparison to say trying to learn Floyd or Zeppelin.
