KISS’ self-titled debut was released on this day (February 18) in 1974, and to say that most of America didn’t know what to make of the group is an understatement, especially when you watch this March 1974 appearance on The Mike Douglas Show.
On this day, February 19 in 1974, KISS made their national TV debut, performing 3 songs 'Nothin' to Lose', 'Firehouse' and 'Black Diamond' on ABC's In Concert. The episode aired on March 29. Get a taste of what it looked and sounded like.
In music history, it’s not uncommon for different notable moments to share the same anniversary date, but it is rare that those moments complement each other as well as the two now infamous concerts that took place four years apart on January 30th.
