^ But the difference there is, Lee/Lifeson/Peart is the only
famous Rush lineup. Nobody cares about John Rutsey, do they? So as far as most Rush fans care, L/L/P is effectively the only lineup Rush ever had.
In KISS' case, though, the Frehley/Criss lineup is not the only
famous one. KISS has continued to be just as famous to this day, no matter what lineup they have had.
