When a person says "P.S., I Love You" on the Kiss Kruise, it's more than likely referring to the group's singer, Paul Stanley. Without devoting several paragraphs to the power of his pouting, puckered red lips and backhand pick-tossing, let's leave it that he was one fierce bitch for the second full-makeup show this past Saturday night.
"Strutter," which Stanley reminded the crowd was a song on the band's original demo, awakened a story about the New York of yesteryear -- a time of leather and lace. But Stanley had the hip swivels to rival any woman of that era for a few seconds during the second full-makeup performance of the cruise.
"We decided we're doing this again next year," he announced early on while the boat was docked in Nassau, Bahamas. "This is like camp on a boat!"
This return voyage was confirmed by the band's online master and brand coordinator Keith Leroux the next night. If Kiss Kruise 2 does come to pass, Gene Simmons has set the bar high for himself in terms of attempts to make eye contact with every person in the crowd -- on the floor in front, in the balcony, and on the wings. While it's a tall order, the Kiss live experience has a foundation in fan interaction that sometimes borders on OCD.
