Kiss Kruise 2011: Video Scrapbook


Life has finally settled back into a world without 24-hour buffet lines, a pocketful of poker chips, and a daily dose of Kiss. For those who attended the Kiss Kruise on October 13 to 17, the withdrawal symptoms are getting heavy. To cap off County Grind's extensive coverage -- for the time being, anyhow -- here's a video scrapbook of the experiences that includes the sights and sounds of a weekend that Gene Simmons will never forget.

There's a wealth of intimate, full-makeup performance footage from Kiss' shows at the Palladium Lounge, a sampling of the Kiss fanatics who populated the Carnival Destiny, and several things that will never, ever happen again -- at least until Kiss Kruise 2012.

Thanks to Ian Witlen, who risked serious bodily harm to film the madness as it unfolded, to Adele Hampton, who pored over a ton of raw footage and audio clips to assemble this four-minute masterpiece, and to Sixthman, who didn't mind us poking our noses into literally everything.

If all of the Kiss Kruise coverage of the past week has somehow passed you by, head here to get a whole lot more.

Based on all of the pictures & video footage I have seen on the KISS Kruise review, you would think that there were only a few KISS Fans on the Kruise, as all you see over and over again is the same few people.  Starting this Video scrapbook off with a Fan talking about how he used to get beat up and had to hide the fact that he was a KISS Fan is unappealing.  Frankly, it was direct opposite for me.. anyone who had anything derogatory to say abouy My Band, KISS.. Got their Asses Kicked!

Hey Carmela,Thanks for your feedback. While some other people's truths might be unappealing to you, it makes them no less truthful. Because of time and space constraints, we were not able to speak to every person on the boat, so we chose the people who we thought would be interesting and relatable to Kiss fans.

i agree with both posts. you could have picked a better hall to walk down. there were plenty with doors done up and your footage made it look like a ghost town. and the scene at the bar looked like one as well.  just my opinion. i had a BLAST!!!
