The KISS Army can think anything about “The Elder” now but back in 1981, it was a disaster that nearly destroyed KISS. Which is kind of ironic since now the old KISS fans would give their favorite woolen blankets for a chance to see the band experimenting and doing something artistic and brave... Anyway, I've listened to this album around 1990 for the first time and was in love with it ever since.
“Under The Rose” is an epic masterpiece written by Gene Simmons and Eric Carr. The bass part is simple here but the second part of the chorus (right after the title words of the song) can be tricky.
