REQUEST FOR THE ARMY
KISSONLINE
Dear KISS,

I am a lifelong fan and member of the KISS Army. The reason for my letter to you is to share a birthday request from Hunter Scott, a first grader dying of cancer. Hunter was asked, "what would you like for your birthday?"...his response was ..."a whole bunch of birthday cards!." Hunter's birthday is October 23rd.

I'd like to ask you to please share this information with the KISS Army, who along with KISS are by far some of the most caring people that I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. I know you can always count on KISS and the KISS Army for great things. So let's make Hunter's birthday wish come true!

Please send a birthday card to :
Hunter Scott
c/o Jessica Koehn
PO BOX 278
Saint Leonard, Maryland 20685

Thank you,
Marc S.

HOTTEST SHOW..HOTTEST GUITARIST TOO!
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
Hi Tommy,

My name is Valeria and I'm a fan from Monterrey, Mexico. I went to the concert and I loved it! I went dressed up as you, since you're my favorite member of the band. This is the third time I go to a KISS concert dressed up as you and I'm always proud of that, since, from my point of view, you are the best guitarist that has ever been in KISS. I was proudly saying 'I'm dressed up as Tommy Thayer.'

I don't know if you remember, but on August 14th, 2004, while you were playing a solo, my dad got me in his arms and you were playing less than a meter away from me, looking directly to me. Then, you stopped playing in the middle of the solo, and you gave my dad your guitar pick, since I couldn't reach your hand (I was only 8 years old). Those two 2004 concerts here in Monterrey were in fact my first concerts ever, that's why KISS has a special place in my heart, but I can remember just a few things of the concerts, especially the thing with your guitar pick.

Now I'm 15, you're still my crush, and luckily, I remember all the concert this time. In fact, I spent a lot of time learning the song 'Shock Me' just to feel happy of being able to sing it complete at the concert, and I did. It was seriously the best concert of my entire life. I love you, and thanks for inspiring me to play the guitar!

Greetings from your #1 fan in Monterrey, Mexico

P.S. that's a picture from the concert last week. My mom made the costume :)

SCHOOL PRIDE WITH MAKEUP
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
Dear KISS,

I'm a senior at Chicago's Lane Tech High School. Last week we had our school pride day. Our school colors are myrtle and gold, so I decided to paint my face with Gene Simmons' make up in those colors! I got many stares on the bus to school and many compliments!

It was well worth it! Just thought I'd share.

Love ya guys.

Autumn

MINOT DAILY NEWS
$30,000 from Minot & Wyo. KISS concerts goes to troops

By ELOISE OGDEN, Regional Editor

When the rock band KISS performed at the North Dakota State Fair in Minot July 24, $1 of every ticket sold for the concert was donated to the CSRA Wounded Warrior Care Project.

Laurie Ott, executive director of the CSRA Wounded Warrior Care Project, has informed The Minot Daily News the Augusta, Ga.-based project has received a total of $30,366 for the Minot show and the KISS tour's kick-off concert held July 23 at Cheyenne Frontier Days in Cheyenne, Wyo. Minot was the second show of the group's Hottest Show on Earth tour.

"We are so grateful to KISS and their Minot and Cheyenne fans for remembering our troops, and supporting them," Ott said.

"As Paul Stanley (KISS lead singer) has pointed out, a day shouldn't go by when we don't remember what our troops and their families have given up for us, and we need to do all we can to help them. The CSRA Wounded Warrior Care Project is dedicated to ensuring those returning from Iraq and Afghanistan are not only remembered, but also that they get coordinated care, family reintegration skills and the training and education that lead to employment when they come home. Our troops deserve nothing less," she said.

A FROM THE US AIR FORCE
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
Here is a picture of a student of mine while we were out in the field training for combat operations. I am a tech school instructor for the US Air Force, Security Forces. I train the students to become cops and combat ready troops. Basically we are the infantry of the US Air Force.

I recently attended the show in San Antonio, TX and was fortunate enough to participate in the meet and greet experience. The students knew how much I love KISS and thought it would be cool to camouflage their faces like Paul on their last day of training.

KISS is not only an awesome band but an inspiration while I was deployed for a year in Iraq. I listened to KISS daily to help deal with the feeling of being homesick and also dealing with stressful situations. So I constantly remind my students that deploy overseas to ensure that they take a piece of home with them to help keep them sane during those long months in the desert.

Again thanks for everything, especially the donations made to the Wounded Warrior Project, truly amazing!

Keep rocking!

Corey Morris

GO SAN ANGELO
Fan meets Gene Simmons

By Charlie Bryce

I'm not sure how I would have reacted if I had met rock 'n' roll icon Gene Simmons in 1977, when I was 12 years old and had just seen my first KISS concert in Abilene.

So it's probably a good thing it happened just last month - 33 years later on the San Antonio River Walk.

I'll be turning 46 on Saturday, and getting to spend a few minutes with Simmons and his main squeeze, former Playboy supermodel Shannon Tweed, was like an early birthday present.

A few minutes after leaving the Hard Rock Cafe last month, my girlfriend, Amy, and I were walking along the River Walk when she spotted Gene and Shannon having a bite at another restaurant.
