McDermott quits Kiss concerts

The Dark Blue star was once a dedicated member of the band’s infamous legion of fans, dubbed the KISS Army, and became obsessed with seeing the rockers perform their fire breathing, tongue-wagging, pyrotechnic shows live.

But after attending a recent show in Los Angeles as an adult, the 48-year-old star couldn’t figure out why he was so obsessed with Paul Stanley’s flamboyant, face-painted band.

The actor explains, “I was in the KISS Army and I saw them 13 times. I would hitchhike three states to see KISS. I loved them.

“But recently I went back and saw them in my 40s at the Staples Center and it wasn’t the same. I think maybe I was on something the 13 times I saw them because I didn’t get it. That was probably my last time.”
