Music To Draw By – Rock and Roll Over by KISS

Rock and Roll Over is great album to slap on the stereo when you want to let music take over your brain. This is the perfect 1970’s hard rock album, the last great album KISS ever made*, and one that I love to listen to while I draw. This was their best album since ALIVE […]
