The band's name has repeatedly been the subject of rumors pertaining to alleged hidden meanings. Among these rumors are claims that the name is an acronym for "Knights in Satan's Service", "Kinder SS", or "Kids in Satan's Service". Simmons has denied all of these claims.  
He joined Thin Lizzy in 1973, but played with them for only four months. Four years later he returned and played on the band’s Black Rose album.

Such is the fervour of the KISS fan. They feel like they have a personal relationship with the band, and to them saying you're not a KISS fan is indistinguishable from "I hate you and everything you love." Much of what makes people love KISS was on show tonight: the explosions, the fireworks, the elevating platforms (although one malfunctioned right at the big finale), Gene Simmons spitting blood, Paul Stanley zip-lining over the audience to a mini stage at the back of the venue, Gene flying up to the light truss, Tommy Thayer (playing the role of Ace Frehley) shooting stuff with his guitar… and despite Paul Stanley's voice seeing better days, much of the showmanship and stage craft was there too. And the songwriting is pretty damn tight, even if we did miss out of Deuce and Shandi . If you're one of those people who have seen KISS 25 times, I get the feeling this will not go down as the best KISS concert you've ever seen. But y'know what? It's KISS, and even if you're not a fan, you have to go see them at least once.
By the end of the year, Thin Lizzy were signed to Decca Records and they travelled to London in January 1971 to record their debut album, Thin Lizzy . The album sold moderately well but did not chart in the UK despite airplay and support from influential DJs John Peel and Kid Jensen .  : 27
