Aerosmith: Kiss Are A Comic Act
Steven Tyler and Joe Perry gave Kiss some backhanded compliments when they talked about their relationship this week. They were speaking to The Cowhead Show (via HenneMusic) when they described Kiss as "a comic book." "I remember when we went out with Kiss in '76 or something, one of our roadies got into a knife fight with their guys. And I hated them ever since," said Tyler. "But since then I've gotten to know Gene [Simmons] and Paul [Stanley], and they're beautiful people... But it is different. A Kiss lick and a Joe Perry lick - two different worlds," he said, adding that their music could "offend" him. "I hear [Kiss] and go, 'It's alright. But do they really mean it?'" he said. "And that's why I think Aerosmith has been around forever. We really do take ourselves seriously." Joe Perry made clear the difference between their bands: "They [Kiss] went the theatrical way and used rock and roll, kind of, as their soundtrack. And for Aerosmith, the music is our show. And from that point of view, it's apples and oranges." Both classic acts have albums out this year; Kiss released "Monster" last Tuesday while Aerosmith is preparing to launch "Music From Another Dimension" on November 6. What do you think about their comments? Too harsh, or right on the money? Share your opinion in the comments.
