On August 9, 1995, Kiss performed on MTV Unplugged in what fans consider the beginning of the eventual Kiss Reunion Tour. Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons contacted former members Peter Criss and Ace Frehley and invited them to participate in the event.

i find this gig one of the best unplugged gig i have ever heard..Folks who think Kiss are only a gimmick should hear and see this concert on dvd..Great harmonies,great playing..
anyone who agress?

haven't seen or heard the kiss one...

check out the Nirvana "Unplugged", it's pretty freakin amazing. even if you're not a fan of the band, it's a very insighful look into what they brought to the table in its most stripped down form. they had some great lyrics, and man could they rock the house down. seeing them in a small club in 91, you knew they were going big soon.

ps- Dave Grohl drove Warren Hayne's mom out of NYC on his bus after the 9/11 attacks.

I know record companies tie up most of the releases of these shows, but it would be great to get some of those obscure MTV Unplugged shows from the late 80s early 90s. I think the Allman Brothers Unplugged performance is superior to the IRSA acoustic show that has made the rounds. The percussion on the Unplugged show adds a great deal of richness that is missing from the IRSA show, although the phenomenal Liz Reed and Southbound make up for it.

There's a Joe Walsh & Dr. John Unplugged show that would be great to see again, and the Aerosmith Unplugged show (pre-Get a Grip) was pretty solid, too. Though I agree, that Nirvana Unplugged show is probably the quintessential episode.

i agree. The Kiss one was cool. How about the Pearl Jam one? That was remarkable.

I have Nirvana, Neil Young, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, and 10,000 Maniacs. All are top notch.

I also have the Black Crowes bootleg of the VH1 (?) Unplugged that has made the rounds recently, DVD and audio.

It's all good!

I was not that big a fan of the Pearl Jam one nor the STP one, and here's why: I don't think they took full advantage of the Unplugged idea. By this I mean, they had drums and pretty much played the songs the SAME way they get played on electric, just slightly less electrified.
Compare that to something like a Warren Haynes or Pete Townshend playing a song solo on acoustic and re-arranging it accordingly. The song becomes something new. To me, that is what the whole thing is all about.

I hear what you're saying, they weren't thinking outside of the box. But you've got to remember that in the early 90's, just playing your song on acoustic guitar was a pretty big departure, especially for the grunge bands. STP and Pearl Jam also weren't as mature musically as Clapton and the Allmans, so when Clapton strips down a 20 year old song called "Layla" it was refreshing for him, where PJ and STP's songs were still pretty fresh - hard to put a new spin on something that you just discovered. We see today, Eddie Vedder is a little more bold, just listen to the INTO THE WILD soundtrack.

The 10,000 maniacs show was officially released. It's quite good and quite available.

That was a great show. Tragic, strange band, and that was a great moment. Was nice of him to stop doing smack for a few minutes to give us that.

Rod Stewart's Unplugged show he did w/Ron Wood & some of the others from the Small Faces days & his early solo albums, much of which was acoustic anyway -- I thought that one was great too, w/Cut Across Shorty, Mandolin Wind, Gasoline Alley -- awesome set list fer that one alright, & REAL tasty playing

there was a very indepth article about layne & AiC in Spin(?), describing in grotesque detail the weeks days and hours before his death, and the discovery of the body a couple weeks(?) later. rip troubled soul.

i need to go listen to the VU song on the topic...

ps- i agree with the "didn't use the unplugged format to do something new with the songs" for several of the artists. the townshend / haynes reference is spot on to what us music freaks hope for when an artist plays some tunes acoustically.
