Outspoken. Larger than life. Aliens from another planet. Grown men in make-up (who probably should know better, but we’re glad they don’t). These are just a few things that have been levelled against Kiss over their nearly five-decade career. And although once upon a time there was talk of Gene, Paul and company licensing their make-up, outfits and stage show so ‘Kiss’ could go on touring forever, it seems now that that was just talk. So yes, although we thought the day would never come, Kiss are calling time on their career. But they’re doing it in their own over-the-top, larger-than-life, fire-breathing style (of course they are). The band announced their final End Of The Road world tour last year, and it reaches the UK this summer. To celebrate (commiserate? honour?)…

KEITH FLINT, THE MAN who brought rock’n’roll to the hard-edged electronic music giants the Prodigy, took his own life as this issue of Classic Rock went to press. He was 49 years old. The Prodigy were scheduled to begin a new tour in early April but following concerns for Flint’s welfare, police were called to the singer’s home in Essex, where his body was found. The band’s Liam Howlett confirmed the news on Instagram stating: “I can’t believe I’m saying this but our brother Keith took his own life over the weekend. I’m shellshocked, fuckin’ angry, confused and heartbroken. RIP, brother.” The Prodigy formed in 1990, with Flint, famous for his fluorescent spiked hair, originally brought in as a dancer. But in 1996 he took over on the mic for the band’s…

THE ELDEST MEMBER of 60s made-for-TV pop group The Monkees has died of adenoid cystic carcinoma, a rare form of head and neck cancer first diagnosed a decade ago. He was 77 years old. Micky Dolenz tweeted: “There are no words right now… heartbroken over the loss of my Monkee brother.” Beach Boy Brian Wilson added: “I’m sad to hear about Peter’s passing. I thought The Monkees were great and he will be missed.” Of Norwegian descent and born Peter Halsten Thorkelson in Washington DC, Tork moved to New York in the early 60s. He auditioned for The Monkees TV show in late ’65 and became the final musician to join the cast after his friend Stephen Stills recommended him to its producers. His role was that of a loveable dimwit. The band…
