Kiss Now Owns a Pro Football Team, What?
Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons of KISS are now part owners of a professional football team – of course they are!
The LA KISS will play at the Honda Arena in Anaheim starting in March 2014, and season ticket holders will be treated to a free KISS concert at some point next year.
The team will use the famous KISS logo on their helmets. Do we even want to know what their uniforms are going to look like?
Pete Townshend Keeps His Cool
Brit Pop Band One Direction kind of borrowed a riff from The Who’s Baba ‘O Riley for their song ‘Best Song Ever’ – and Pete Townshend is fine with it. He reminds fans of both bands that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery in an online post:
“No! I like the single. I like One Direction. The chords I used and the chords they used are the same three chords we’ve all been using in basic pop music since Buddy Holly, Eddie Cochran and Chuck Berry made it clear that fancy chords don’t mean great music – not always. I’m still writing songs that sound like Baba O’Riley – or I’m trying to!. It’s a part of my life and a part of pop’s lineage. One Direction are in my business, with a million fans, and I’m happy to think they may have been influenced a little bit by The Who. I’m just relieved they’re all not wearing boiler suits and Doc Martens, or Union Jack jackets. The funniest thing is that in Canada this year I met with Randy Bachman once the leader of GUESS WHO who told me that he not only copied Baba O Riley for their hit You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet, but he even called his band after us. Why would I not be happy about this kind of tribute?”
