Lol their responses to the question why they took off the makeup. It was a publicity stunt, an attempt to re-gain popularity and recognition, oh and also money.
Is the black guy the guy from Conan the movie with Arnold Schwarzenegger????
Damn Gene, put the makeup back on!
Ah, yes, the days when MTV was broadcasting out of someone's basement.
My dad remembers everyone at school was talking about it and was shocked and Risky Business and Return of the Jedi came out the same time as this
gene is funny
Great faux pas at 5:50. 'People have always dismissed Criss' ('Kiss')……
Put Vinnie’s makeup back on. It’s like opening the Ark of the Covenant.
My dad remembers at school Everyone was talking about it and was shocked
Besides all the usual stuff discussed about this classic interview, I gotta wonder, couldn't anyone give the great J.J. Jackson a stool?
This interview needed Ace to interrupt with comments and bust Gene's balls.
This was one of their best song-writing periods…(cheesy posing aside…lol).
In 1983 it were a big deal when KISS took offa da makeup and a heepa deepa deep and a horpa dorpa dorp and a hoo doo doo
1:54 did he said: to play Fortnite? I didn’t know they had fortnite in that year
I remember seeing this on MTV it was pretty well watch as I recall
Kinda weird how the S’s in the logo look exactly like the German SS. Same font and style. Especially when it was cofounded by a Jewish immigrant.
Doing the splits lol
A kiss TRASH NOBODYS ARE BUMS TRAMPS BIMBOS RETCHES NOBODYS AND DONT CARE IF FANS GO HOMELESS OR TO HOSPITOL.
A kiss ARE WASHED UP BUMS TRAMPS BIMBOS RETCHES CRAPHEADS BOZOS AND HAVE NOT MADE A HIT IN YEARS.
Dam Dem boys ugly ..shoulda left masks on
I was 11. Nobody cared about this at the time.
Vinnie Vincent should have kept quiet. He made himself look like an ass. He had only been in the band for a year. Even Eric car didn’t say anything and he was in the band longer. This unveiling was really to see Gene and Paul without their make up; hardly anybody else cared about Eric or Vinny
What is your favorite KISS song? Mine: Shout It Out Loud
I wish Eric would have said more.
I never seen this I saw Kiss without make up on good Rockin Tonight with terry david mulligan..played a clip from a world without heroes then Thrills in the Nite ….
Uuuuuh…..put the makeup back on
I miss ace his laugh
I gotta say, Gene and Eric look the best in the room, Eric's cute and Gene's hot aaaa
I'll bet Gene and Paul were freaking out inside when Vinnie opened his mouth.
Paul's eyebrows were amazing
With the masks they are mildly entertaining. Without the masks they are an embarrassment. Garbage with the narcissist Mr Gene "cry baby" Simmons.
KISS has never been my scene and I cannot deny their success nor their popularity nor their longevity and ability to continue to entertain for nearly 50 years now.
KISS unmasking themselves on MTV was like aliens landing on your street. And regardless of what Paul and Gene say here the makeup was a gimmick to get people to attend their shows and build interest in the band. The message they wanted to send after 10 years in makeup was, "We want this band to stand on its music, not the theatrics…" And for what it's worth, I think the song writing, the musicianship and the quality of their art overall improved after the makeup was removed.
I was also a bit disappointed by J.J. Jackson here forgetting that Alice Cooper was doing more with theatrics in rock and long before KISS which even Gene and Paul have acknowledged a few years even before the Unmasking here.
NOOOOOOO!!! Put the mask back on!!
RIP, Eric Carr and J.J. Jackson.
