Happy 30th Anniversary "Lick It Up" | wikipedia

Today In KISStory - 1983

KISS release their studio album "Lick It Up".

Lick It Up is the 11th studio album by the American rock band Kiss. On the day of the record's release, the group members appeared on MTV without their trademark makeup. It was the first public appearance without makeup by Kiss since the band's very early days. The title track "Lick It Up" remains a staple of the ensemble's live performances, having been played over nine-hundred times as of September 2012. However, the rest of the album is rarely played live.

This is the first KISS album officially featuring new lead guitarist Vinnie Vincent, despite the fact that he unofficially appeared for the first time on the last album Creatures of the Night.
