TOMMY IN OREGON MUSIC HALL OF FAME

Tommy tells the story...

Saturday, October 9th, 2010 Black 'N Blue was proudly inducted into the Oregon Music Hall of Fame. The ceremony and party at Portland's Roseland Theatre included dear friends, family and a ton of B 'N B fans. A fantastic introduction by Peter Tashjian, son of our beloved manager Garo, told the story of how in 1983, five irrepressible young rockers (barely out of high school) made their way to Hollywood to take their shot at the big time. After our introduction, induction and receipt of OMHOF plaques, we jumped onstage for a 30-minute set of B 'N B faves, including "Hold On To 18", "Miss Mystery" and "Nasty Nasty" among others. It was a great feeling to get together with Jaime, Pete, Patrick and Woop and let the good times roll again; and to celebrate all things Black 'N Blue!

AT WARRIOR DASH
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
KISS really is everywhere! At this weekend's "Warrior Dash" in Jellystone National Park (PA), a mud-filled 3.1 mile marathon/obstacle course/festival, these four lads dressed as KISS in full makeup and costume and looked great! I took this photo after they finished the race along with my brother Pat in the middle.

What an awesome day!

HOMECOMING FLOAT
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
KISS IS EVERYWHERE!

Hello KISS,

My husband, Rob, is I think the biggest KISS fan. His "man cave" is filled with KISS items and he even has the KISS shower curtain in his bathroom. He says his next purchase will be the ceramic tiles. He thought I should write to you about the Leslie High School Homecoming in Michigan.

On October 8, 2010 Leslie had their homecoming. My nephew, Austin Rhoades, is a Junior this year and the Junior float was in honor of KISS. Austin is also a KISS fan and was so excited that he was going to be dressed up as Gene. That dream was not fulfilled though, since he was named the Junior Class Prince. Instead of riding the float, he had to ride in a Mustang Convertible. But he was still thrilled that his Junior Class was honoring KISS, and the float won the competition!

My husband, Rob, also informed me that KISS was at the Cadillac Homecoming 35 years ago almost to the day. He thought that was very cool. Too bad we couldn't have had you perform like you did years ago. Although, when you were playing at Cobo Hall for the last time we were able to take our two nephews, Austin & Matthew, and our niece, Jade, to see you. They were all excited and we were very thankful to be able to take them.
