DAUGHTER'S FIRST CONCERT
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
Dear KISS,

I just want to thank you for making my childhood so great! I would have never thought that 31 years after becoming a fan that I would have the opportunity to take my eight year old daughter to see a KISS show. My daughter had a blast at the show and was singing along to all of the songs and other KISS fans were giving her high fives. This photo was taken at the Dec. 1st Glendale, AZ show. Thanks for making such a monumental occasion possible for me and my family!

Best,
Kevin Schoeff

PEARL DRUMS
The phrase "words can't describe it" has a whole new meaning when talking about a KISS concert. That certainly seems to be the case when it comes to Kiss' Alive 35 Tour which is currently touring around the US, and soon to be invading Europe. Kiss has made more than a career out of being in a rock band, they have made it a lifestyle with a cult following consisting of some of the most adoring and dedicated fans on the planet. Kiss defies exactly what it is to be in a rock band and their live show has always left fans in awe and amazement. From the fireworks and the flames to the spinning drum riser and rising stage sections, it's safe to say that Kiss is back.

To play in one of the biggest rock acts of all time means that you constantly have to be on top of your game at all times. It's easy to say that most players couldn't handle the constant drumming for 2 straight hours, a long drum solo, singing backup vocals on every song (and leads on 4), having explosions and fireworks constantly going off, and 20,000 people watching your every move.

Then again, not everyone can be like Eric Singer.

ENCOUNTER WITH GENE SIMMONS
GENESIMMONS.com
I am BARELY breathing. Even though my heart is POUNDING. I had the BEST experience of my life! I just sat directly next to Gene SIMMONS on the flight home to AUSTIN from El Paso, Texas. My husband Doug & I flew into El Paso on Wednesday afternoon to go to see KISS the "Hottest Band in the World!!!" that night, and were headed home on Thursday, December 3rd, 2009.

I could not get up the nerve to go over to Gene when I first saw him, as we went through the security checkpoint, or even at the gate as we waited.

How did I first see him? I had just walked away from the ticket counter from checking in our bags; Doug was returning the rental car. A lady said, "M'am, can I ask you a question? Is that man over there at the counter, Gene Simmons? I figured you would know or not." (I happened to be wearing a KISS sweatshirt, carrying my KISS jean jacket, and wearing my KISS Rock N' Roll Over Vans). I looked over and said, "YES, it is, that is Gene Simmons!" I began shaking pretty hard, trying to get out my phone to call Doug, my camera to take a picture, and trying to stay calm and standing up at the same time...

TULSA WORLD
By Jennifer Chancellor

KISS lead guitarist Tommy Thayer admits that he's no Ace Frehley.

But, he says, he doesn't doubt that he is the celestial, starry-eyed "Spaceman."

Thayer's journey to replace the KISS co-founder and greasepaint-wearing guitar virtuoso was a long one.

"Being compared to Ace is only natural," said Thayer, who's been the official KISS lead guitarist since 2002, after Frehley left the band for good. "I've lived up to those expectations pretty well. The band just continues to grow."

In fact, its popularity keeps expanding.

With nearly four decades of touring under its belt, KISS isn't just a band. It's a mega-brand that markets bombast and rock and attitude to more than three generations of fans, in things including video games, comic books, soda and its newest studio album release, "Sonic Boom."

"We've never had many fantastic live reviews - ever," said Thayer in a recent telephone interview with the Tulsa World. "We've always been the band that critics love to hate."
