Mazer: “From the day I bought concerned in 1989, promoters would name on daily basis, ‘When are they placing the make-up on?’ So there was a monitor on the document known as ‘Rise to It’, and I got here up with an thought for a video, I mentioned, ‘You realize what? Let’s shut these folks up.’ And I bought them to place the make-up on within the video.
Bruce Kulick (guitar) and Eric Carr (drums) – clearly not being unique members – they had been within the outfits however they sat with their again to the cameras. You did not see their faces, however it was Gene and Paul in full make-up. We did the video, and it was not a profitable video. It form of mentioned to me, ‘There you go. That was yesterday. Let’s transfer ahead, creatively with new music.’ Sarcastically, 5 years later they did put the make-up again on, however that video for ‘Rise To It’ was form of an homage to the make-up years. That is not what I needed to do. I needed to maintain making nice music, which I feel we did on the Revenge document (1992), of creating a fantastic KISS album.”
