It's an amazing backstage shot from the MSG homecoming show, 2/18/1977. It was used for the cover of the first Grooves KISS Magazine Special!

That early shot of Paul is one of the best I think I've ever seen.

If Peter was visible it would have been perfect, but still... :salut:

Wow, from the attachment/thumbnail pic, I thought that was Bruce and Mark St. John discussing who’s turn it was to go onstage circa ‘84.

That’s the most unique position i’ve seen the logo in yet! Gene’s behind it now and it’s roped off to discourage front row fans from grabbing a souvenir light bulb or two.

Most of us weren't around (in that sense) in the 1970s.

But this picture kinda summarises what I imagine the pre-MeeToo -days to have been like.

The little dark curled girl with Gene making his stained smile, beneath Frehley’s wedding pic in KISSWAH’s 1st photo group is an absolute doll!! I love the Love Gun b&w with all the spark fountains but it seems the majority of the arena couldn’t see much behind the lip of the stage. Thank God we’ve become spoiled by the flying PA rigs of the last few decades. I still recall being floored by Journey’s stage on the Escape tour because there was nothing on the stage but the keys, drums, monitors and a railing around the back. It was beautiful it was so wide open.

I don't know what your program is doing to blow up the image but the faces do not look like Paul and Ace anymore.
What are you using? It's a very interesting but not particulary flattering effect!

I've seen it posted a number of times, by various members, that Paul doesn't have any friends, this and that. Photos like these provide evidence that its quite to the contrary.

Maybe they use a database of collected face features in higher resolution to complete the enlargement.
Creepy stuff what's possible nowadays. I mean look at Paul's nose and mouth, Ace's eyes ... weird!

I don't even know. But the very strong impression that I have, viewing all of this from afar as I must, is that Gene's nothing like his famous persona. That he's a decent, big hearted guy. Again, I have no way of knowing. He's always making "deals," which at least implies that he has people skills.

I don't think that's Paul, guys

And "an app called Remini" does NOT equate to a "higher quality" photo.

Enlarged, yes. But WTF did it do to the guy's mouth?? And his nose for that matter.

And holy shit, look at Ace's eyes. Higher quality my ass. Who hires the amateurs that come up with this garbage?

I have no idea what pictures you mean (I did google I don’t think you mean whatever came up trust me 🤣!)

Brother please post them here I would be more than happy to run them through the app
