You want the best, you got the best, the hottest band in the world…..KISS!


Those are the famous words spoken by Eddie Balandas as the band is introduced on the KISS Alive II album. His thunderous intro can be heard at the start of the album, and was a rallying call to the thousands of fans who saw KISS live in the mid-to-late 1970′s and is probably burned into their inner being.

As a band security guard at the time, Eddie was drafted to take over as announcer 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.

He passed away on Monday.
