Ep. 87 What If… KISS Recorded a KISS Album in 1978 Using the Solo Albums as Demos

Episode 87, August 5, 2014. What If… back in 1978 KISS decided to record a KISS album and not do the solo albums. But, used the songs from the solo albums as demos to create the 1978 album. What songs would be selected, how would those songs change and who might sing those songs? Mark Cicchini this week started his This Isn’t Spencer’s Crap mini feature, looking at some very collectible versions of some common KISS magazines.

    The one thing about this hypothetical and the Gene content you’re choosing from…if you believe his ‘excuse’ for his album, he wasn’t looking to put out “The Demon’s” solo album, but rather intentionally branching out and doing something different. If you take him at his word, he likely wouldn’t have brought that collection of material to the table for a KISS album. Doesn’t mean you can’t do this exercise, but it makes it tough to realistically speculate how it might have played out and especially in terms of having to use Peter material to make up for Gene’s lack of usable content.
