...when KISS, back in 1974, went to the offices of CREEM MAGAZINE for a photo shoot and interview. As they were leaving...in the parking lot...the photographer asked if he could take a couple pics of them out of makeup. The band wasn't sure if they should. When the photographer sensed their hesitation, he lied and told them that he had spoken with their management and they said it was OK ... so ... being green to the scene ... they said, "OK sure". Creem sat on these photos for years. It was rumored that large sums of monthly payments kept them buried.
