Opening Arguments

Kiss off

Oh, drat, I can't make it:

Rock band Kiss will make its Indiana State Fair debut Aug. 9 at the Hoosier Lottery Grandstand.

Led by founding members Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons, Kiss is known for face paint, platform boots and 1970s hits “Rock and Roll All Nite,” “Calling Dr. Love” and “Beth,” among others.

From the comments: "Does anyone realize that the Beatles played at the Indiana State Fair in 1964? Then again at the start of their career of course which was before they sucked unlike Kiss whom has always sucked." Amen to the sentiment if not the grammar. And they say the cool people don't read newspapers anymore.

Agreed. Kiss has always sucked. No wonder they work in disguise.
My older sister saw the Beatles in Shea Stadium that same year. Probably the same tour.
She said she couldn't hear the music over the girls' screaming.
I'm a Beatles fan, but I never understood the screaming.
