From 1979, one of the biggest hits of what has been a very big career for KISS; nearly half a lifetime ago now for lead singer and bassist Gene Simmons, who today turns 61. As big as the band was, they might have been even bigger if only they'd found a way to bring a little theatricality to their act...
I Was Made For Lovin' You first appeared on their album Dynasty, adding a distinctly disco flavour to the band's usual hard rock sound, in keeping with the times; while Paul Stanley handles rhythm guitar and vocal duties (and Ace Frehley lead guitar, with Peter Criss on drums, as usual) Simmons lays down an infectious - some would say contagious - bass riff.
