1988 – The charismatic David Lee Roth has his hit single, Just Like Paradise, sitting at #6, on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles Chart. Just for the Metal record, I happen to absolutely, 100%, without a micro doubt… love this song. Just Like Paradise is featured on the second full-length album from David Lee Roth, released back in 1988: Skyscraper.

All six members close out the CD/VHS with ‘Nothin’ To Lose’ and ‘Rock and Roll All Nite’. MTV originally broadcast KISS Unplugged on October 31, 1995.

‘Unplugged was a chance for us to celebrate the musical history of the band by stripping, some great songs from different points in our history, down to the bare essence of what makes them great.’

After playing for the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants, Darryl went on to become a valuable member of the New York Yankees, winning three World Series with them in 1996, 1998 and 1999.
