Granted, KISS was pretty basic. But Alice Cooper's band was one over the most over looked, talented group of musicians ever assembled. They simply had the misfortune of being behind Alice Cooper.

Pick up any of his stuff from the late 60's to mid 70s or so. Killers, Love It To Death, Billion Dollars Babies. Brilliant.
Do mean misfortune as in unlucky to be led by AC? Or misfortune as in AC took all the limelight, leaving the band in the shadows?

I vote for Alice Cooper, I preferred his vocals.

Actually one of the biggest myths surrounding Alice Cooper was that he fired the rest of the band to go solo.

What actually happened was after the Billion Dollar Babies tour was a lot of the band wanted to do solo albums , but Alice was convinced they should carry on as they were.They recorded another album togther (Muscle Of Love) but the band were so burnt out it wasn`t all that good and they decided to take a break from it. Alice`s solo album (Welcome To My Nightmare) was really the only album that made it off the ground and was a huge success.After that he just carried on doing his thing & the rest of the band did theirs. 3 of the band released an album called Battle Axe under the band name The Billion Dollar Babies in 1977 with a singer called Mike Marconi but it did badly and they split shortly afterwards.
So they wern`t fired , the band just sort of drifted apart. Apparently they`re all still good friends with each other. Alice got onstage and played a few songs with them a few years back.

The thing with Kiss though, is that you could have the option of using any of 4 singers either together or separately on each song.Obviously Gene and Paul did most of the singing, but even the option of 2 talented singers doing their part to give each song its own voice is better than just one singer (Alice Cooper) trying to make his own changes to every single song he wrote, ya know?Kiss and Alice Cooper are both great though; the only difference is that Alice always sounds the same, while Kiss has a unique sound for all of their songs.

Ok... Let's get this straight. Before Cooper there was nothing! You had the Beatles, but everything was hippy love or pop rock! ALICE IS the Prince of Darkness! Kiss who? Please!

Kiss are so overated, and their guitaring is crap!! Kiss covered Cooper's 'School out for summer', *ahem* ruined it. Cooper has such 'in your face' vocals, and he's lyrically underated, his songs are quite clever. If anyone has a car, please drive down a motorway to Alice's 'Poison' and tell me how it feels!
