Kiss Lineups

Post by NYRockCity » Thu Feb 13, 2020 10:08 am

Out of all the members of Kiss what is the oddest lineup you can put together (real or fake)?

I think:
Paul, Gene, Peter or Eric S, and Vinnie
Or
Paul, Gene, Peter, and Bruce

What do you all think (actual lineups listed below):
1. Paul, Gene, Peter, and Ace
2. Paul, Gene, Eric C, and Ace
3. Paul, Gene, Eric C, and Vinnie
4. Paul, Gene, Eric C, and Mark
5. Paul, Gene, Eric C, and Bruce
6. Paul, Gene, Eric S, and Bruce
7. Paul, Gene, Peter, and Tommy
8. Paul, Gene, Eric S, and Ace
9. Paul, Gene, Eric S, and Tommy

Hard to top that one... but also:

Paul, Gene, Vinnie, Peter (especially in makeup... the Cat and Wiz together kinda has that weirdly intriguing Marvel/DC crossover vibe.)

Paul, Gene, Tommy, Carr

Paul, Gene, Mark, Singer

If you took gene and paul out of the line up the weirdest has to be

Vinnie Bruce Mark and Peter

I have said before that KISS could go the Iron Maiden route and have three guitarists: Ace, Tommy and Bruce.
Paul drops the guitar and stays lead vocal 8)

How about Ace, Peter, Vinnie and Mark?
They might never accomplish anything, but I think it would be entertaining anyway.

Tommy and Peter is the strangest combo, and that was a real lineup.

I didn’t know that. That’s pretty cool. How did mark go from Peter’s band to kiss? Or was there a time gap?

This was after Kiss. Never took off. They made some demos. Peter wrote about it in his book, if I remember correctly.

I’ve always thought past members should start a band called “The Rest”. That way the the intro could be “ALRIGHT ______, YOU WANTED THE REST,YOU GOT THE REST....”
