So glad to see 'em put out an album after all these years but what I'm really waitin' for is the new studio album!

And catchin' 'em live on The 2nd Annual Monsters of Rock Cruise! It was surreal watchin' 'em perform on the top deck as we departed the Bahamas this past February. The 2nd annual cruise is this coming March, so start saving and book ASAP!

p.s. Frontiers is an awesome label with SO many great acts who play OUR kind of music -- Glam Metal and 80's Style Hair Metal (though the hair, in most cases, has been trimmed back somewhat) and AOR -- in other words -- REAL Music, not that greaser sh*t many of you keep tryin' to SELL on here!

Gary! As I first commented on BBG! on January 10th of this year, the first time I saw KIX was in (brace yourselves) 1982 opening for Cheap Trick.

Then, in the period from that year forward to 1990, I saw them 26 times in and around Baltimore, mostly up in the 'Dena (Pasadena, MD), plus a couple of times in NYC and once in Ocean City, MD.

I also saw the band around half a dozen times in the late 70's and early early 80's under two monikers -- Shooz and The Generators at Maude's a local bar in my hometown of Annapolis, MD.

I finally saw KIX again after 18 years in February of 2008 and have seen them about 6 times since then.

And now you can guess why I'm looking forward to hearing live performances of songs from their new upcoming studio album.

The greatest thing about seeing KIX so many times from '82 to '90 was watching original bassist and band mastermind, Donnie Purnell, who performed on stage as though he was being electrocuted.

I'm actually old enough to remember Shooz.8-) As for Donnie,LMFAO!!!

Yeah, Gare, if ya really think about it, I really believe Purnell was trying to top Angus Young as far as stagecraft goes. Having watched both closely at point blank range in the late 70's, 80's and 90's, including AC/DC fourteen times, I think he actually topped Angus on a few occasions.

the first time i saw the Shooze was at a 98 Rock birthday ball - The Shooze played on one floor and DC Star played on another floor - fell in love with both bands and have been a fan ever since...

I'd love to see them do some new studio stuff but i'm not holding my breath.

I have a video of Kix at the Cap Center back in the day - watching Donnie makes you realize how much you miss him being there...I think Mark is great and I know too much $h*t has passed but how awesome would it be if he decided to come back?

and while I'm up on my soapbox - whoever is in charge of their merchandising is REALLY missing the boat

Nice article, Not2hi, but just realize, it was Purnell's pressure on the band Whiteman's complaining about that made them the astounding act they are today.

oh, without question - here's an article by producer Tom Werman on working with Kix and Donnie
