Eddie Balandes"....The Hottest Band in the World....KISS!!!!" are the famous words spoken by Eddie Balandas as the band is introduced on the KISS Alive II album.
As a band security guard for at the time, Eddie was drafted to take over as announcer following J.R. Smalling's departure at the end of the '75-'76 European tour.
Eddie worked for the band for the Destroyer through Alive II album era and apparently is also known infamously as the person most fired by KISS - 19 times to be exact! A true character, he was there for some of the most exciting, funny, dangerous and interesting episodes of KISS's career. Eddie is also well known for staying up until 4 am in the hotel lobby of the recent Indianapolis KISS Expo talking to enthralled fans about his endless KISS stories and experiences. We look forward to this appearance at the upcoming NJ/NY KISS Expo where you will get to hear this and more!
