Rock Candy

KISS probably has a long history of having the last laugh when it comes to critics. That’s especially the case for one review the band shared to social media yesterday (May 27) as part of #TBThursday.

In the Seattle Daily Times review dated May 27,  1974, the author wrote, “I hope the four guys who make up the group, whose names don’t matter, are putting money away for the future. The near future, because KISS won’t be around long.”

Oh, boy…that review couldn’t be more wrong!

As if that weren’t enough, Paul Stanley retweeted the review and added, “This grows funnier every year. And to the gentleman who wrote this ‘prophecy’… In 1974 I hope YOU were putting away YOUR money for the future. It’s not easy being an unemployed critic.” BURN!
