I have no idea what any of this means. Is Kiss a bootleg label? What is Destroyer? Never heard of it.

The rock band KISS with gene Simmons.
They sing love gun,god of thunder,and maybe their most popular song.It goes "I wanna rock and roll all night and party everyday"
I'm not a huge fan so I wouldn't pay that price

I believe that at some point, Prince deluxe editions will be considered collector’s items so I’m willing to pay the grip. To have the little things I enjoy after the bills are paid means a lot to me.

Besides, who knows if we would’ve gotten this much if the Purple Homie was still alive?

No. If the price is too high, I don't buy it.
If you take any of this seriously, you're a bigger tool than I am.

Oh, of course! Confused me by being in the Prince: Music and More. Probably shouldn't be in this forum.

Kiss is horrible. Their music is so BASIC.

But check out that Metallica black album deluxe.

Not really a KISS fan, but Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine's speech for their Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction is a work of art:

Not really a kiss fan but I do admire how gene has done the business end, yes they are ridiculous, but the fact that they own everything there's no legal battles with labels of music, they learned this day one, so how ridiculous are they for knowing the business Side at an early age when most siign anything

I don't feel like I paid too much for any of the posthumous releases though there were a few versions that I skipped due it being too high like the W2A one that greedily was the only version that had the much desired concert disc. No way I would spend any money on Kiss though they definitely still have a fan base that will.

I had an unusual personal experience related to Kiss. In the mid 70s before Kiss was known to the general public, I went to a concert in a small venue of about 1000 people to see the headliner

Blue Oyster Cult. They also publicized that the emerging and controversial band The New York Dolls would be opening for them. They did note that a third band no one knew of named Kiss would be the first act. I was at the start a smoking pot phase that lasted throughout high school, and the venue was so filled up with such a dense pot smoke fog that even the non-smokers got high. Well, unbeknownst to us, Kiss was doing their blood, fire, and extreme makeup gig from the very start. So, when they came out and did all their theatrics, people were tripping out and screaming headbang . I imagine I just had this extreme stoned and shocked look while watching. They actually were the best received band of the night, with the perception that the New York Dolls were gay was too much for the deep south audience (I was one of the few who even clapped for them), It amazed me to see how Kiss's career took off shortly after this. I was glad to see them before it became predictable shtick On a side note, the venue was closed a fear years later for being a fire hazard with inadequate ventilation.

Just a think for ALL to think about and realize, I heard this recenlty when it was announced there is going to be ANOTHER Paul McCartney III Vinyl Color release, coming sometime in the next month or so whatever, which makes probably about a dozen or so different colors, and people some have bought multiple, some buy them all, some buy one. And the comment was if you dont want it DONT BUY IT, he isnt ripping you off, you buy what you want and can afford or care about. MY biggest problem with these collector limited things are the SHARKS that buy one before FANS and then charge a thousand dollars on EBAY and that is taking advantage, again you dont have to go to ebay and buy something, BUT I have an issue with non fans doing this, its right up there with scalpers for tickets back in the day that would buy the first ten rows and sell them ten times as much.
