Kiss Finally Get the Cover of Rolling Stone
#TaniaOnTheScene - After 40 years, the original members of Kiss make their first appearance on Rolling Stone's cover
You wanted the best? It took a while, but you got the best: Forty years after the release of their debut album, Kiss have finally made the cover of Rolling Stone. Marking the band’s upcoming induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the cover image is a classic 1975 photo of the band’s original lineup: Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons, plus Ace Frehley and Peter Criss, who were both gone from the band by the early Eighties.
The Kiss cover story appears in the new issue of Rolling Stone on sale Friday, March 28th — and online today, March 26th.

According to “Partition” director Jake Nava, the shoot was meant to be “even more risque than she’s been in the past.” It also required a lot of effort from Jay Z, who makes a brief appearance in a limo scene.
"We actually had to do it really quickly because he was in the middle of doing a tour in London and we were actually filming in Paris," Nava said. "We had to kind of, like, [have] a police escort waiting for him to jump out and get on a helicopter and do his gig."
