Is KISS Really The Hottest Band In The World?


Was KISS's Influence More About Music, Or Make-Up?


Taking a lighter-hearted, and downright fun, approach to tonight's episode of The Ernest Experience Radio Show, we will tackle the ever-important (!) topic of KISS.  Did they really influence other bands after them, or did people just copy a genius marketing ploy?  Some say the band is more about flash and pizzazz than any real musical substance.  Is anyone really humming "Love Gun" or "Deuce" at work, or perhaps "Strutter" while at home cleaning out the garage?  

KISS superfan Derek Levine joins us tonight to discuss just how awesome he thinks KISS turned out, all while Ernest butts against that idea, defending true musicianship and writing while dismissing the idea of a need for fireworks and 2000 lights per show.

All this plus music, NPR news, Ern's 3-minute commentary "Say What You Mean & Mean What You Say", and your phone calls.  Are you a KISS fan?  Wanna chime in? Call us at 1.347.746.EERS or 1.347.989.1942.  We're gonna rock n' roll all night, and party every day...at least for the hour.
