KISS Soundcheck 1977


Here is a pretty badass picture i saw the other day.  Seems to be a picture from soundcheck  from 1977.  It’s the Love Gun stage for sure, but no other info.


There’s an intro for the “I Love It Loud” video???

OK…this just blew my mind!   I have been watching this video for as long as I can remember.  First time I ever saw it was on Night Flight (remember that show??).  Anyway, as far as I knew, it always started with the family sitting at the table and the drums kick in.  Now in the year 2016, I find out there is 35 more seconds of the video that I had no idea about!!  Nothing great happens in the footage, but I had just never seen it!!  It’s linked below….ENJOY!!
