Again I’m wondering if Paul is posting things he reads about here.πŸ€”

And it just hit me...the tinsel hanging on the bottom of the trailer is one of the things that makes me so sad.πŸ˜”

For me it's the kiss logo in small, boring, unassuming font on the banner.

It looks like a screen cap from a cheap TV-movie, a Phantom sequel, this looks like the scene where the town (whatever town) gave Kiss a parade for defeating the Phantom.

what Paul says is BULLSHIT
I could see that happening maybe early in their career, but no way were they promised what he says and Macys or the parade organizers come out with this. You think Doc McGhee would let this happen? I call bullshit that KISS didn't know what was going on
Why even bring it up again Paul.....?

Directed by Albert Pyun. With his stalwart Tim Thomerson starring as Deverdeux, a cyborg clone of Deveraux cloned by his old computer console from the original movie seconds before his demise.

It was still better than the Shark boat performance...with the tiny smoke machine and 5 l.e.d lights as Gene points to a imagined crowd...that was worse than the parade.

Yup...even besides the shark thing, it was like that show in 2007 when Paul couldn't play, and you had one original member outnumbered by replacement hired guys. Kiss goes Foreigner.

I can't describe how awesome that photo is. I love how the band name is in impossibly small font on the banner. I imagine the guy carrying the banner looks like a lot of fans do when Tommy pretends to be Ace.

I remember reading that when Cheap Trick agreed to open for Foreigner in 2017, Rick Nielson said they'd only do it if Mick Jones guaranteed he'd play every show. Of course, Jones didn't play every show, due to either being sick or "sick."

That's because he wanted to sing "Have a Holly Jolly Christmas" instead.

I never knew they were even at the parade until later that night.

I will admit Paul looked pretty cool with the robe/cape (or whatever it was).

Looks like Paul was a good sport about it. If this just happened, 100 marchers during a quarantine lock down seemed unrealistic.

Maybe the real Kiss deserved a bombastic float parade, not G&P’s attack of the clones. What was provided was sufficient :D
