In 1975 Kiss was riding high on the success of their first live album "Alive". They were about to enter the studios with world renown producer Bob Ezrin to record what would be their most celebrated album ever called "Destroyer". Ken Kelly, famous for his fantasy artwork, was acquired to create the image for the Destroyer album cover. The Destroyer album cover would end up being as striking as the music inside and has since become one of the greatest album covers in hard rock/heavy metal history. Ken Kelly’s masterpiece has helped to burn the image of Kiss into the mind of the world!
Ken Kelly is interviewed about the creation of the Kiss Destroyer album cover, which he created two versions of, and reveals the complete back story of how the image was created.
