That Footage from 1979.....

Post by Terry Zeppelin »

Hey...i have a couple questions.

Does anyone remember that footage from Kiss Extreme Close up....the Dynasty footage where KISS is about to go onstage and Gene is holding Peter's hand like he's helping to guide Peter to the stage? Does anyone know where that footage is from and where it can be found (other than on a copy of Kiss Extreme Close-up??

And one more question...

On Kiss' appearance on 20/20...why is Ace sitting on Paul's lap? I've always found this to be extremely odd...

The footage from 79 you're referring to is from Greenville SC, and KISS are the only ones who have it. It's never leaked into fan circles.

I remember it being on YouTube a few years ago. I saw it. When I decided to download it I could not find it anymore ... maybe it got taken down because it was in one of the menus of Kissology?

In the video I love how Ace decides to lay down a bit.

Just out of curiosity, is the Greenville, SC show just backstage footage or does the full concert exist in the bands archives?

Agreed. Not nice to see, strange that they included that part on the video.

It's only sad to watch because the footage is slowed down and played while G&P are talking about Peter's addiction. In real time It's obvious they are just messing around.

they can spin it anyway they want it. If it fits their narrative, let's show them super slow motion so it seems like Peter is out of his mind.....

So weird, I was looking for that footage just last week as it had popped into my mind for some reason.

Slowed down or not, Peter looks totally trashed. The way he's walking and has his head tilted.
