KISS Exercises Their Freedom to Rock for Thackerville, OK

By Eric Shirley / www.moviegeekfeed.com

KISS has been a proven rock and roll institution now for over four decades. They've conquered not only the album sales charts and live music venues of the world, but the band has been begrudgingly inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as well. KISS definitely earned the right to call their own shots.

That's exactly what the powerhouse four-piece super-group has been doing lately. KISS can easily pack out five-digit capacity venues, and they still do all over the globe. However, lately they've been visiting cities they've never been to or haven't graced with their presence in years on the Freedom to Rock tour. One of those stops was for a sold out audience of 3,500 lucky fans in Thackerville, OK at the Winstar World Casino and Resort's Global Event Center.

The show at Winstar World Casino and Resort's Global Event Center was a more intimate experience than what I've had before at a KISS concert. Although the word "intimate" might sound ridiculous to some, seeing the Hottest Band in the World in a room that only holds 3,500 is much different than seeing them in an outdoor amphitheater or arena that holds 15,000 to 20,000 people. Unlike mezzanine seats or the back wall of the lawn thousands upon thousands of yards from the stage, there really wasn't a bad seat in the house.

Interview: KISS Guitarist Tommy Thayer Shares His Grail Songs and More

By  / www.atimelyperspective.com

Last week we had the opportunity to interview guitarist Tommy Thayer, a.k.a the Spaceman, of KISS. He was talking then about his involvement in raising money for the Oregon Military Museum, named after his war-hero dad. However, we did get to ask a few questions on a more rock-and-roll tone. Here we bring you the answers to the questions our readers told us they wanted to know.

ATP: If you were alone on a desert island, what 3 key songs would you bring with you?  

 Tommy Thayer:  “Definitely I would have a Beatles song. I am a Beatles freak; I think they are the best band of all time. Maybe, even though it’s a little dark, I think Eleanor Rigby is one of the most amazing song ever written; it would that one.

Comic Book Review: KISS #5

by Eric Shirley / www.moviegeekfeed.com

I'm still not entirely sure how the actual band fits into Amy Chu's storyline, but I'm having a great time enjoying the ride she's taking us on with KISS #5 and it's predecessors. Half the fun is not knowing your destination as the finely illustrated issue rolls along. The last page is a jawdropper that's sure to leave readers shocked and yearning for more.

Things are heating up fast, and when we say heat, we mean HOT. The ventilation system is broken and the city is running out of air! Meanwhile, Noa and Eran are still reeling from the revelations about their past. The four friends must reconcile their differences to save everyone, and with the help of MORPHEUS, solve the big mystery of Blackwell before it's too late in KISS #5.

KISS #5 is rated T+ for Teen Plus. Like I said last issue, I really don't know why it's rated anything over a regular Teen. There's less gore, violence, profanity, and frightening and intense scenes than we get in a monthly issue of any of the DC Comics super hero titles.

Amy Chu handles the writing duties for KISS #5. Kewber Baal provides artwork for the issue. It was released on February 15th through Dynamite Entertainment. The book is 32 pages long.

KISS #5 is available now in print and digital editions.

ROCK GODS KISS guitarist Tommy Thayer is proud of Scottish roots

BY CHRIS SWEENEY / www.TheScottishSun.co.uk The axe-wielding black-and-white knight is gearing up for the superstar bands latest spectacular world tour. Speaking to The Scottish Sun from his Los Angeles home, rock god Tommy says: Being in KISS is absolutely as good as youd imagine. And Im not just saying that. Ive been so fortunate to play lead guitar for one of the biggest rock groups in history and you cannot find anything wrong with that. I wake up every morning thinking the same thing, Im a lucky son of a bitch. Tommy is counting down the days until the face-painted warriors who have sold more than 100million albums hit The SSE Hydro in Glasgow in May. And as he gets read to wow his Scots fans, he spoke fondly of his Celtic heritage. He says: The Scottish fans are dear to our hearts. Glasgow is going to be a fantastic show. And I have Scottish roots. My mothers family is from Scotland. We are Cunninghams. My understanding is that my family fled Scotland as they were horse thieves. So they had to run away to the new world. Im pretty much one of you. Maybe a few other things mixed in here and there but Im Scottish deep down. The gig here will also allow Tommy to indulge one of his unlikely passions art collecting.
