KISS Takes Over CLASSIC ROCK Magazine

The latest issue of U.K.'s Classic Rock magazine is out now — and what's more, it's guest-edited by none other than KISS.

Commented KISS guitarist/vocalist Paul Stanley: "You wanted the best. You got the best! What a great opportunity this is for KISS to pay tribute to many of the bands that have been key to our development, to shine a spotlight on the artists that have been such an inspiration for us.

"So many of the artists in this issue are major influences on KISS, and me in particular. Be it THE WHO, HUMBLE PIE, PAUL RODGERS, LED ZEPPELIN... the list goes on and on.

"Our thanks go out to Classic Rock for making this special issue possible."

Here's a taster of what's inside Classic Rock issue 144: KISS' Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer may have had control of this issue — but for their interview, we gave control to you, the Classic Rock readers: cue reader-inspired questions.

The May 2010 edition of Classic Rock is in stores now.
