Replacement KISS Anyone?

A few years ago, there were heavy rumors circulating around the internet that KISS would eventually produce a "KISS Idol" T.V. show to seek out replacement members to continue on with KISS after the current members of the band retire. We'll it seems that maybe that time is coming sooner rather than later.

In a recent interview with KISS bassist Gene Simmons, Gene mentions that KISS may indeed be retiring and finding new members to carry on the legacy of the band/brand after their worldwide tour in support of the new KISS album "Monster".

Says Simmons of a 'replacement KISS':

"The big question is the what to do when the tour is over. It may be necessary to put down the band and find four new young men who can go up on stage and wear our crowns.They will probably not be able to do it just like us, but the idea of Kiss is greater than the band. Kiss is iconic and just as much a brand as a band."

Do you think Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley are replaceable as members of KISS? Will KISS be 'KISS' without them in the band?
