Lips was born the night Chelsea died, when the trio performed at the Yellow Front Saloon in Fort Lee, NJ when Shepley and Brand were late. 
While the material they would develop was similar to the material Chelsea had done, several later KISS songs were born in this period. 
When he saw that the band was going nowhere, Michael Benvenga, quit early 1972 going on to do session work before marrying in 1975. He would pass away in 1977, aged 28. 
The band would do one demo recording with session guitarist John Amato assisting.
