Known for their head-banging music and their crazy makeup, the Rock Band KISS is not a group that you would think of when considering acoustic guitar songs about love. But their hit single “Beth” released in their 1976 album “Destroyer” is to-date the highest charting single of the group’s impressive repertoire. Written by the Drummer Peter Criss and played on acoustic guitar, “Beth” is a plaintive love song for Criss’s wife (actually a combination of Criss’s wife and Brand’s wife) and expresses the yearning he feels for her even when his job keeps him away.
