REVIEW: -SONIC BOOM
MUSIC REVIEW
By Sergio Pereira

Proving that rock 'n roll can never die, Kiss continues to soldier on with their 19th studio offering, Sonic Boom.

Right off the bat, Sonic Boom is a nostalgic album. The brains behind the band, Stanley and Simmons, haven't changed a thing about their sound - there are no nu-metal or grunge influences, just good ol' fashioned rock. If anything, they've only become more comfortable writing for themselves than for the music charts and critics, who've often been ruthless and unapologetic to any experimental releases.

A lot has also been said about the absence of Ace Frehley, but in all honesty, Tommy Thayer is equally adept on lead guitar - and adds his own sprinkle of overdriven magic to the Kiss legacy on tracks such as 'Say Yeah'. The man is talented and shouldn't be forced to live in the shadow of another great guitarist.

Love 'em or hate 'em, Kiss is legendary. Behind the face paint, flashy costumes and pyrotechnics is a group who have further cemented their name into the rock 'n roll almanacs with the release of Sonic Boom.

Do yourself a favour and get a copy of the special edition release, which features an additional best of "Kiss Klassics" CD and "Live in Buenos Aires" DVD. This is a must have album!

Best Tracks: 'Russian Roulette', 'Stand', and 'Say Yeah'

Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Eric Singer and Tommy Thayer attended the City of Hope 2009 Spirit of Life Gala benefit that raised $9 million dollars for the cancer research center.

AEG President and CEO Tim Leiweke received the City of Hope 2009 Spirit of Life Award at the event. A portion of the proceeds from a number of AEG tours, including KISS, are donated to the research and treatment center. KISS donated $300,000 from tickets sold on their KISS ALIVE 35 US tour.

More than 1,700 people attended the dinner including Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, Laker Magic Johnson and entertainment luminaries from the music and movie industries.

The Gala was part of the festivities surrounding lighting ceremonies for downtown Los Angeles' new 54-story JW Marriott Los Angeles at L.A. LIVE and The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Tower at the JW Marriott in Los Angeles, California.

Hello KISS & the KISS Army!

Check out these great custom-painted KISS football helmets. I wanted a KISS collectible that no one else had. I love pro football and KISS so I thought these would be perfect. My fellow Kiss friend Brett Resler painted them for me.
