Kiss live, lightning effects

Post by southwest91 »

It may sounds a little odd, but I remember in high school we had a teacher who told us a story about kiss having a show(the whole point was at physics class, we were learning about electricity currents etc) with electricity and paul Stanley was beaming sparks from his body, after I discovered the internet I tried to search anything relates but if found nothing,. Have you ever heard something like this?

I believe this is what your teacher was referring to.

The only thing I can think of is the Tesla coil the band briefly used on the Destroyer tour. As for the sparks coming from Paul's body....perhaps that part was just remembering things wrong.

I'd go 76 tour as well. What's the high school time period?

Never happened regardless of what year it was.

A little kid might confuse a video of a strobe light effect with electricity. Memories are funny things at best, and that’s before you add 45 years to them.

Your teacher went to a KISS concert out of their mind on LSD.

Guys thank you for your answers,the conversation with my teacher was before nearly 15 years,he was a rock fan.Propably what he was meant is the faraday cage,seems pretty much as a man who shooting sparks from his body.I have to admit im very surprised by the baroquish shows of pre 80s kiss,pretty cool stuff.
