KISS by Patrick Harbron
Photographer: Patrick Harbron
Location: Maple Leaf Gardens, Toronto
Date: August 4, 1979
"This was the first time I photographed KISS. I thought the show was insane, like a giant cartoon but great to shoot. KISS, unlike many of their peers, gave photographers extended time in front to of the stage knowing that the opportunity to have more access would not be wasted. Gene later edited my photos by drawing signs on the slide mounts of the frames he liked. He was all business and made the KISS one of the biggest merchandising success stories of rock and roll."
