Korang yang minat kumpulan Kiss, or grow up zaman rock 70an dulu mesti tahu lagu Beth kan? Lagu slow giler yang aku suka betul liriks dia..
So memang dari dulu aku pun nak tahu sapa sey si Beth tu yang Peter Criss nyanyi pasal ni lagu dia tau, so macam2 cerita la aku baca.
Tapi ni Classic Rock Revisited interview Lydia Criss, ex wife Peter Criss dan ni dia cakap pasal sapa sebenarnye Beth. ( Yang bahagian People's Choice Award tu semua ialah pasal lagu ni memang tu award ).
Anyway, lagu ni keluar tahun 1976 album Destroyer , yang depan dia cam gini -

ada korang belum keluar kat dunia ni, ada korang masih kecik2 lagik hehehe. Aku dah ada dah hik hik hik ( tua nye aku!!!! )

Jeb: You are the real life Beth.

Lydia: My name is not Beth and my middle name is not Beth. The real girl was a girl name Rebecca and she went by Beck. The song was written about her and there is a picture of her in the book. She was a friend of mine and she was married to the rhythm guitar player from Peter’s band Chelsea. She was a little annoying. The song was actually written as a mean song. It really was saying that they hear her calling but they are not coming home because she is so annoying. They never did anything with the song. Peter brought it out to Gene, Paul, Ace and Bob Ezrin and they decided to use it but they made it a nice song.

At the time I had stopped working. I had supported Peter for twelve years by paying the bills. Now that Peter was working and paying the bills I felt kind of empty. I told Peter that and in the song he wrote, "You say you feel so empty, that a house is not a home." I was normally at the studio when they were recording because I love to see and hear how it is all put together. However, I was not in the studio when they did "Beth." They called me in and they sat me on a stool and they played the song for me. Everyone was silent and I just listened to the song on headphones. When it was done, they asked me, "What do you think?" As the tears were rolling down my face I said, "You should have called it Lydia."

I was shocked that the band let me accept the People’s Choice Award. You do know that you are going to win that award before the ceremony. Kiss was already booked that night in North Dakota and there was no way they could be there. I told them that I would accept the award for them and Gene agreed. I panicked. I lost ten pounds in ten days. I only had ten days to get ready for it. I had to get a dress and I got fake nails – I was not used to them and I could not button anything. I was a nervous wreck. I had to get a speech ready and everything. I would go to the office and everyone would smile and say, "Look, she has stage fright already."

Full interview gi sini -

Dah 21 tahun eh love song ni, tapi still best of the best..Aku suka versi Kiss Unplugged MTV masa dorang ori 4 orang pes reunion tu jam early 90s.

Anyway, aku ada fulus lebih sikit aku nak carik buku ni Sealed With A Kiss. Berat dia je dah 4 1/2 pound. Best giler, kalo untuk sapa2 yang fascinated ngan KISS cam aku hehehe. Nanti ah lain kali.

saje2 je tampal sini, pasal aku memang suka giler lagu ni walaupun terlampau la slow dan cintan cintun gitu ekekeeke, tak bleh angkat siak liriks dia.

Beth I hear you calling
But I can't come home right now
Me and the boys are playing
but we just can't find the sound

Just a few more hours
And I'll be right home to you
I think I hear them calling
Oh Beth what can I do
Beth what can I do

You say you feel so empty
That our house just ain't our home
I'm always somewhere else
And you're always there alone

Just a few more hours
And I'll be right home to you
I think I hear them calling
Oh Beth what can I do
Beth what can.....I do

Beth I know you're lonely
And I hope you'll be alright
'Cause me and the boys will be playing all night
all night
