42 Years of KISS Dynasty

Yesterday marked 42 years since the release of the KISS Dynasty record. While it not apparent to the KISS Army at the time, the original KISS lineup was only a short time away from it’s end. Peter Criss did not actually play on the album due to a combination of injuries to his hands from car accident and struggles with substance abuse. Anton Fig was called in to keep time as he had already worked with Ace on some of his solo efforts. The album did have radio success with “I Was Made for Lovin You“. It actually peaked at #11 on the US Billboard charts. But, perhaps the most lasting part of the Dynasty era are the amazing costumed. They were more elaborate than ever with Gene, Paul, Ace and Peter dawning capes with signature colors for each member. The KISS predominantly black and silver schemes were replaced by Red for The Demon, Hot Pink for The Starchild, Blue for SpaceAce and Green for The Catman. The photos and videos from this era are amazing.

KnuckleBonz has expended our license with KISS through 2023 with the band and we are hard at work on a new set of Rock Iconz.

Rush Hemispheres 3D Vinyl® on the KnuckleBonz Lighted Stage

Up this AM on the KnuckleBonz lighted state is our RUSH “Hemispheres” 3D Vinyl® Collectible Statue. This is a limited edition, as are all KnuckleBonz Collectibles.

The Hemispheres album was recorded at Rockfield Studios in Wales in 1978. The 1st side chronicles the struggle of heart and mind with “Cygnus X-1, Book II: Hemispheres”. “The Trees” was saw the most FM radio play, but the progressive rock finger shredder is “La Villa Strangiato.” Even the mighty Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart could not record this track in one performance from to back, so they split it into parts for recoding.

This is a fine example of our 3D Vinyl format with the main 2112 human form floating above the brain in front an endless blue mesa.
