The first album to include all members on lead vocal and the last to feature the original line-up. Love Gun’s snare lick and the Mitch Mitchell-inspired manic grooves are legendary.
Peter Criss says:
“I loved Mitch Mitchell! Like me, he was a jazz drummer and there was a feel in my playing that was very jazz and rhythm and blues. I was breaking out with these crazy, odd-time fills in Shock Me, and simply playing without thinking because that’s what really came naturally”
“There were no rules and that’s when my drumming in Kiss was at its best. Things were changing for the better too - Ace was singing and I had contributed Hooligan - we were having a lot more fun as a band.”
“The album was recorded in a theatre. Ace, Gene and Paul were downstairs while I was in a bathroom upstairs, watching the guys through a video camera. I wanted that big ass drum sound and the bathroom gave it to me! We were totally out of control, man!”
