These stories are for The Musicology Anthology Challenge. There will be fifty-two of them.

KISS Alive 1975-2000

     It was a hard choice to make between KISS, The Eagles, and Queen. I also could have chosen Styx, Kansas, ZZ Top, or Boston. Even Ted Nugent and Peter Frampton may have been selected. The reason why I chose KISS is for two reasons: one is that they are my favorite group. And the second reason is it’s the first group that I think that I remembered listening to.

     I really wasn’t that much into music until I was about fifteen or sixteen. True, I was kind of into Country a little before then because of my mother. And I was serious about several singers. But I wasn’t really into it all that much either. That drove my oldest brother crazy because I wasn’t into Rock. When my parents got a divorce, I and my mom moved from Overland Park, KS to Lee’s Summit, MO. I’m not exactly sure when I started getting interested in Rock. But it was soon after that.

     The reason why I selected this album is that it has a lot of songs on it that I like a whole lot. If I don’t love them. It also has quite a few that I don’t know too much about. And some that are kind of new to me. In total, there are six-nine songs on this album. But there are seventeen that have been duplicated elsewhere. The lyrics are the same. Only the times are different.

     I’ve got fifty-two short stories to write for this Challenge and three months to do them. So, they probably won’t be too long. I’m going to try to do about a thousand words for each one. But if anyone knows me, what I want to write and what I end up doing are two separate things sometimes. I have decided to do these stories as a series.

     Thomas and Joann Winston are professional educators who work at two different High Schools in towns on both sides of where they live. At least they did before they gave it all up to Home School their four children. They didn’t decide to do that because of violence or drugs at the High Schools. It’s because those schools favored athletics over education.

     Both Thomas and Joann are big KISS fans. Three years ago, when they started Home Schooling, they missed out on going to a KISS concert. They spend the whole night listening to one song after another again and again. At first, Peter, Gene, Christine, and Beth didn’t like KISS. But after that very long night, they gradually became fans too. This year Thomas and Joann have decided to take their kids on a road trip during the summer. To teach them more about KISS. These stories are based on that road trip.

     How did I get these lyrics? It wasn’t easy. I started with YouTube. But they only gave me the songs, not the lyrics. So, I did a Google search under one of my favorite songs, if not my favorite one, aka Beth lyrics. Two of the sites they gave me among many are www.genius.com and www.lyrics.com. I decided to use the lyrics one. Except for one. That one I had to get from genius because I couldn’t get it from lyrics.

     Below is the list of those lyrics. One can be found on www.genius.com. And two can be found on this album. The rest you will find on KISS Alive, KISS Alive II, KISS Alive III, and KISS Symphony: Alive IV. All of them you will find on www.lyrics.com. They are…
