A classic exchange in the comments section of a recent CNN/Money article about KISS:
I play in a rock band. KISS songs are easy to cover. Rock N Roll All Night is super duper easy to do. But when we play it, something is missing and all of a sudden it sounds like crap. KISS music is easy and simple, but without KISS doing it, it ends up less somehow. They are the artists that take simple brush strokes and create masterpieces of music. Easy to play the notes, almost impossible to create the music.
And the reply:
Maybe your band sucks worse than Kiss. Ever consider that?
