Kiss were played and mentioned several times earlier today (January 8th) on national Swedish television during the 30 minute special regarding Swedish rock band The Hellacopters called ”Dom Kallar Oss Artister”.
As mentioned in several interviews over the years, Kiss has always been the favorite band for Hellacopters mainman Nicke Andersson.
In this TV special he talks about his all-time favorite album Rock And Roll Over. Nicke had decided to be a Kiss fan even before he heard the music! He had some collectors cards and loved how they looked. He asked his mom how they sound and he was told that they sound like Dr. Hook which she liked. Eventually Nicke got hold of a copy of Rock And Roll Over. This was the first album he ever owned. He didn’t really understand how it worked with A sides and B sides so he put on the B side first. That means that Love 'Em Leave 'Em was Nicke’s first Kiss song ever and he was hooked right away. ”This didn’t sound anything like Dr. Hook!” Nicke says in the interview. Nicke also says that the cover artwork for Rock And Roll Over is the best artwork ever made.
