Paul Stanley's concert DVD, ONE LIVE KISS, is available in stores today! Mixed in 5.1 surround and stereo, highlights include not only KISS favorites such as "Lick It Up," "Love Gun" and "Detroit Rock City" but also songs from his hit solo album. Backed by the amazing house band from the CBS shows "Rock Star: INXS" and "Rock Star: Supernova," Stanley ignites the stage as he performs his first new songs in more than eight years, including "Live To Win" (Top 10 Classic Rock on the Mediabase Chart), "Bulletproof" and "Lift."

IKONS
KISSONLINE.com
IN STORE NOW

KISS. Four musicians. Four characters. Four icons ("IKONS" in KISS speak)-the Demon, the Star Child, Space Ace, and the Cat Man. Today, the KISS juggernaut shows no signs of slowing down as the KISS Army marches on with a new generation. Now fans can celebrate 35 years of "The Hottest Band in the World" with IKONS (Mercury/UMe), released today, October 21, 2008, a four-CD box set with each disc specifically dedicated to showcasing the lead vocal performances of one of the original KISS members-with half of the 56 selections appearing on a compilation for the first time.

IKONS, conceived by a fan for the fans, spotlights each "ikonic" founding member-Gene Simmons (the Demon), Paul Stanley (the Star Child), Ace Frehley (Space Ace), and Peter Criss (the Cat Man)-on separate discs within the box set. No other band has been able to showcase members individually like this. Not only do these artists play their instruments with fierce intensity, but they each can stand in front of a microphone and sing. With IKONS, their four separate characters allow listeners a choice of favorites and a choice of attitude.

IKONS brings together almost four hours of rockin' KISS music with 14 songs per disc. Included are the original recordings of the band's biggest hits and fan favorites spanning their career from "Strutter," "Deuce" and "C'mon And Love Me" to "Rock And Roll All Nite," "Beth," "Detroit Rock City" and "I Was Made For Lovin' You." Of the 56 songs included, 28 make their debut on a KISS collection. Among them are "Love 'Em & Leave 'Em," "All American Man," "2000 Man" and "Hooligan." The deluxe packaging features a 24-page booklet.

AWARD IS GENE'S TONGUE

Just got back from Mexico, where I was the honored guest of the MTV Latin American 2008 Awards. Hectic and fun.

You'll see more news soon, but I was surprised to find out that the actual AWARD of the MTV Latin American event is...MY TONGUE!!!.

Yep. The Academy Awards have their Oscar. The People's Choice Awards has their Crystal Award...and MTV Latin America has...my tongue. It was a hoot seeing the various artists receiving my tongue (...). Metallica played and were in great form. Jared Leto and his Mars guys sat nearby (You're welcome, Jared!!!).

KOL FAN LETTER

Hi Gene,

I am a big fan of Kiss and Gene Simmons Family Jewels. I am 9 years old and live in Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada. I just wanted to show you my Halloween costume from last year when I was 8 and the pumpkin that I made with my Dad. Hope you like them. My family thought you were great on The Apprentice. I'm a big fan of Donald Trump also. Too bad you didn't win.

I hope to meet you one day.

Anyway, it's good to be...me! I love that line, I even used it on one of my school projects this year.

From,

Brendan Banks

DAYTON FEST ROCKED!

EVENT CELEBRATED 'ONE LIVE KISS'

Here are a few photos from last Saturday's Dayton KISS FAN FEST.

Though the event was billed as a KISS FEST, this one was all about Paul Stanley! Though not present, Paul was definitely there in spirit as several hundred fans enthusiastically celebrated the release of Paul's 'ONE LIVE KISS' DVD. Fans were treated to a Q&A with the film's director, Louis Antonelli, and a screening of the entire concert & additional unreleased footage from Paul's LIVE TO WIN Tour!

The day also featured two great performances from KISS Tribute bands - KIDS and MR. SPEED. KISS collectibles were on sale through out the event and everyone in attendance received a 'ONE LIVE KISS' laminate, guitar pick and over sized postcard.

Just another great day of celebrating with fellow members of the KISS Army!

The top and bottom photos were taken by Joe 'Big Dog' Frey for KOL. The middle photo of the bands, KIDS and MR. SPEED, was provided by Tony Nealeigh.

After more than 15 years, my dream come true yesterday at Long & McQuade store in Ottawa.

I finally met the drummer that changed my life forever.

Last week, I saw that Eric will be at Long & McQuade store in Ottawa. I jumped in my car with my son William and my best friend Seb (the Tattooer) to go there.

My son and I would like to thank Eric for all the time he took with us to sign all my precious stuff including my arm (now tattooed) !

For all Kiss fans, you want the best and we have the best drummer, Catman and human guy in the world -Eric Singer!

"INVITATION ONLY" EVENT
PAULSTANLEY.com
AN EVENING WITH PAUL STANLEY

Following Saturday afternoon's gallery show, Wentworth Galleries held an exclusive 'invitation only' private dinner and evening with Paul Stanley at the Ritz Carlton in McLean, VA. 30 art collectors from around the country feasted on a multi course dinner of filet mignon and roasted sea bass while surrounded by new art works including abstracts and portraits.

Each course of the dinner featured a star shaped food item beginning with star crab cakes and concluding with assorted star shaped pastries and chocolates. Paul, along with Tommy Thayer ate each course at different tables, spending quality, one on one time with all guests.

Everyone who attended agreed the highlight of the six hour party was an unannounced surprise of Paul and Tommy performing an acoustic set of KISS and Beatles classics!

With the overwhelming success of the event, plans are underway to make this an annual event with next year's festivities in Las Vegas.

Paul s second visit to the DC area Wentworth Gallery was one not to be missed and provided a great experience by meeting Paul. I made a call and found out that one hour prior to the general public coming in there would be an opportunity to be a part of a private champagne reception and meet and greet with Paul. The catch? You must purchase a piece of art. I then was told that I could book an appointment prior to the reception to have a gallery member show and talk about the works in depth that may help in the decision making process. The last thing I was told was that during his last appearance the line stretched through the mall and...
