Other KISS members participation on "Beth"[edit]

Unless I'm completely mistaken, the only member of KISS that performed on the original recording of "Beth" was Peter Criss. The only additional vocals on the song are Criss', who obviously double-tracked certain parts of the melody. So I'd say it's safe to assume that no other member of the band performed on the track.

Peter Criss' departure[edit]

Peter Criss was not fired in 1980. He left the group voluntarily. NewPasha 19:54, 20 August 2007 (UTC)

  • Depends on what resource you consult. I think the basic story is that he wanted to leave, and Kiss put up no resistance. But Gene Simmons has always maintained that Peter was fired, whereas Ace Frehley quit. --cholmes75 (chit chat) 20:00, 20 August 2007 (UTC)

I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template.

Hard rock genre?[edit]

Granted, Kiss' music as a whole fits into the hard rock genre. However I suggest that such a designation be removed for this song. It is a ballad, and not a hard rock ballad. --SidP (talk) 15:42, 2 April 2008 (UTC)

well I would say Power Ballad suits it best because KISS is metal and its a ballad therefore a power ballad.  —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.17.159.25 (talk) 06:08, 5 April 2008 (UTC) 

Beck to Beth - Who gets the credit?[edit]

In Peter's 2012 book "Makeup To Breakup: My Life In And Out Of Kiss" (and in an interview on Opie and Anthony promoting the book) he denies Gene Simmons all credit for changing the song name from Beck to Beth. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Philr77 (talkcontribs) 20:29, 2 August 2013 (UTC)

Right. You know that if Gene Simmons had anything at all to do with this song, he would've been on the copyright, and he is not. I don't know where Paul Stanley comes off saying Peter Criss had nothing to do with this song, as he is the one who had it copywritten. Their hatred for him goes pretty deep, I assume (that is, if the writer of the article is right about the quote). Pookerella (talk) 05:01, 31 January 2016 (UTC)
