I'm a girl born in the wrong decade. I belong in the 1960s or the 1970s in my opinion. I bleed tie dye, my theme music is anything 1960s rock or 1970s rock or metal. I'm a hippie through and through. But also a hippie who loves old metal music. I believe that violence never solves anything, so why resort to it to solve problems? With all the wars the world has seen, there should be a clue somewhere in there!

On This Day-Jan. 30, 1973
On this day, Jan. 30, in 1973, legendary rockers KISS perform their first concert at the Popcorn Pub, later to be renamed the Coventry Club, in Queens.
Less than 10 people stood witness to history in the making. According to bass player Gene Simmons, the band was only paid $50 for two sets. Prior to this, Gene Simmons and fellow guitarist Paul Stanley left their previous group, Wicked Lester, to form a new group. They recruited Peter Criss for drums and Paul "Ace" Frehley for lead guitar. This first show was to be history in the making, considering that some of the songs they played, "Black Diamond" "Deuce" "Watchin' You" and others would become concert mainstays and be played at almost every concert of theirs from then on.
