Of the four original members of the rock band KISS, which one is your favorite and why?
I have just finished reading the four original members autobiographies. There are some pretty distinct personalities here. A fan since I was 15, I find my opinions about the band and their break up changing and am curious what other people think.
Gene Simmons was always my favorite. His demonic appearance terrified and fascinated me when I was a kid. Nowadays he comes off as a smug egomaniac but I figure he's earned the right to be that way, haha. I still admire the guy even though I have a feeling he'd rub me the wrong way if I met him in person.
Keith, Gene was always my favorite, too! I think it was because of his immense stage presence. Gene was also everywhere in the press. Now I know that he was also smart enough to have engineered that!
Yep, and he has no patience for fools (just ask Ace or Peter) and is obviously very driven and dedicated - he and Paul have kept the trains running on time (so to speak) in that band for 40+ years now,.
Although Simmons has experienced success beating the KISS horse into the ground as well as with his television show and several books, Frehley continues to be a true musician. Paul Stanley is a guest on Frehley's newest cd.
My favorite member is Paul Stanley. I remember he was nice enough to pose for a second picture after I explained the first one didn't turn out (dummy me forgot to turn the camera back on) at the KISS Convention in Nashville. I also felt after that encounter that he understood how things were for me growing up with a deformed eye--it was at this event I found out about his own deformity. Plus, it seems that the majority of my favorite KISS songs, are ones he sang lead on.

Do you think the original four members of KISS will reunite this year? Would you go to see them?(I was dancing around this question, afraid to ask) A host on XM Radio said it is not unrealistic, in light of Guns and Roses reuniting, and Paul Stanley guesting on Frehley's latest LP "Origins,...
