KISS - Invasion (review by Jelle Jansen / Kiss Related Recordings)
The most interesting part of this DVD release is the uncut version of the Night Flight interview (taped January 1983), which runs about 55 min.
Before the interview with KISS (Vinnie, Paul, Gene and Eric) actually starts, the band jokes around a bit, waiting until the crew is finished ...
After about 5 minutes the interview actually starts; topics include "The early days, forming KISS", highlights and stories about their early live performances, The recording of "Creatures of The Night", Peter Criss decision to leave the band, Ace Frehley, Eric Carr's audition, the writing process with Vinnie Vincent, the auditions for a new guitar player after Ace Frehley left ...and so on.
Personally my favorite part of the interview is when the Gene Simmons is asked about his relationship with Diana Ross ... In some way Gene seems not sure how to respond ... and starts singing "It's My Life" (the song KISS demoed for "Creatures" and later appeared on Wendy O'Williams 1984 album ... Than Paul Stanley takes over, making clear with explaining the difference between the band KISS and the value of having a private life besides KISS ...

The second chapter is a Q&A session with Vinnie Vincent, taped by a private cam at the Atlanta (?) Kiss Expo, March 1996.
Topics during the 19 minute interview are the release of the Euphoria EP, The 1989 signing with Enigma Records for "Guitars From Hell", Vinnie's introduces his wife Diane, music influences, Flying V guitars, Meeting Gene Simmons for the first time ...(note : Vinnie suggests it was early 1981, but that probably was early 1982), the writing and recording process of the "Creatures Of Night" album... The Ankh make up design, working with KISS again in 1991 / 1992 for the "Revenge" album ...

The third and final chapter is edited version of the Night Flight interview (taped January 1983), and runs about 10 min.
