Welcome to Kisstoria!

You have just arrived at a site that tells about the history of the band called KISS, divided into different sections.

KISS was formed in January 1973, and thus it has existed for almost 50 years. All kinds of things have happened during these years.
KISS's line-up has changed several times during its existence. Some of the line-ups have performed without masks.
KISS's discoraphy is large and musically diverse. 20 full-length studio albums have been released so far. If the 1978 solo albums are included, the number increases by four.
KISS has been touring since 1973, and KISS's probably last tour "End of the Road World Tour" is going on right now.

Random quote

What I love about being a member of KISS is that we're the 'John Glenns' of rock - we always have to be the first in anything we do, and I love that.

- Peter Criss
