Yes Bill, that pink had to go.





But I'll still take it if someone's feeling charitable :-)

Fun fact: I had to take an art class in high school and part of it was we had to do a comic strip. I created a band of characters based on Universal monsters and stole the story from Unmasked almost panel for panel.

(I'm a terrible artist by the way, but I needed an art credit.)

Okay, now I want to know which monster John has as the lead singer.

Dracula was behind the microphone, the Wolfman was lead guitar, the Creature was on bass and the Mummy was the drummer.

That is really cool!

And on that spooky note, I do like the cover for CREATURES OF THE NIGHT:

I love the "Creatures" cover and I remember they used to run commercials for it pretty heavily on TV when the album was coming out. I'd listened to 'Dynasty' a lot when it came out but lost track of KISS for a couple years until I saw those commercials.

I wasn't keen on the album cover for LICK IT UP (too ordinary):

As I've already said, CRAZY NIGHTS is the only cover from the no makeup era I like. And it has nothing to do with the lack of makeup. It's all the designs. ANIMALIZE's cover looks like it took all of 30 seconds to come up with, and don't get me started on ASYLUM's cover.
