Kiss by the mid 1980s had become Rock establishment - they are no rock royalty. The quartet of Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, Peter Criss and Ace Frehley came together in January 1973 and according to legend played their first gig in front of just three people - a decade and a half later and they were filling stadiums. Their 1973 self-titled debut album for Casablanca Records got to No.87 on the US chart, while a year later the follow-up, Hotter Than Hell, made No.100. Come 1987 the band, minus Criss and Frehley released their fourteenth studio album, 'Crazy Nights'.

Unlike many of their contemporaries Kiss did not enjoy a lot of mainstream success on the Hot 100, but 'Crazy Crazy Nights', co written by Stanley and Scottish born songwriter Adam Mitchell picked up a lot of airplay, becoming  a hit in many other countries, notably, Norway, The Netherlands, Australia and the UK where it peaked at No.4  - the best performing Kiss single on the British charts. It was the same position as the album reached in the UK helping to cement the band's reputation as a live act outside America.

It was a decade earlier that 'Love Gun' was their big break through when it made No.4 on the US album charts. It was during the making of the follow-up, 'Dynasty' that Peter Criss began recording less with the band; by the time of 'Unmasked' in 1980 Anton Fig was occupying the drum stool, full-time. Eric Carr took over from him for 'Music from 'The Elder' in 1981 and was still there in 1987. By 1982's 'Creatures of the Night' Frehley had also left and a string of guitarists played on the albums between then and 'Asylum' in 1985 when Bruce Kulick joined as a fulltime member of the band. During the 1990s Kiss was one of the top grossing bands, yet only in 2014 were they finally inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
