KISS: Rare 31-Year-Old TV Appearance Surfaces To Promote Auctions

March 20, 2010

A rarely seen 1979 Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley TV interview has been posted online to promote the never ending KISS memorabilia auctions of eBay seller EliteWorks.

During KISS' 1979 "Dynasty" tour, KISS played the now-demolished Checkerdome in St. Louis, Missouri. To promote the concert, Gene and Paul appeared (without makeup) on the long-running local afternoon talk show "Newsbeat".

This week's auctions, which end on Sunday afternoon, include several highly sough-after official 1970s KISS items, such as the 1978 trash can, the Thermos backpack, the 1976 Cadillac High School "KISS special" newspaper, a stage-used Peter Criss "Beth" rose, original photographs from a 1974 press conference, the 1970s KISS garbage can, several vintage KISS cover story magazines-including a 1973 Melody Maker page 1 article on New York glam rock, a factory-sealed posters lot and several additional items.

The KISS auctions can be viewed here.
