Kiss' roots go all the way back to a band named Wicked Lester, co-founded by Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley
in New York City. The band released just one album before both Simmons and Stanley decided to change up their musical style
and form a new group with a more distinct musical vision. After bringing established drummer, Peter Criss, into the band,
the trio started practicing their new hard rock sound, and even started to play around with their image, experimenting with
makeup and outlandish costumes.
In 1973, the trio became a quartet when they added guitarist Ace Frehley to the group.
Just a few weeks after Frehley came on board, the band changed their name from Wicked Lester to Kiss at a suggestion from
Stanley. The first ever Kiss performance occurred in 1973 at the Popcorn Club in Queens, where the band played for a small
audience of less than five people. Pretty soon, though, Kiss was playing to much larger crowds as their name spread around
the country. They signed to Casablanca Records in late 1973, and started working relentlessly on their self-titled debut album.
Kiss debuted in 1974 and the band went on an extensive tour to promote their first album. They even performed on various TV
talk shows, such as The Mike Douglas Show and Dick Clark's in Concert, and quickly established a growing fan base of mostly
young rock fans. Although it took them a few years to rise to prominence, once they did so, rock music was never the same.
