THIS DAY IN TORY 1975
KISSONLINE.com
On this day in KISSTORY - September 10, 1975, KISS released their legendary ALIVE album. This double live album, recorded largely in Detroit's Cobo Arena (with some material from Iowa, New Jersey and Ohio), marked the pivotal giant step towards achieving domination in the 70's.

The multi-platinum album peaked at #9, and spent 110 weeks on the album charts.

"We wanted to put out a souvenir, almost like when you go to the circus," said Paul Stanley. "I really enjoy myself onstage, prancing around, shaking my ass, shaking my head, playing the guitar between my legs. I enjoy it as much as the audience. Basically, I am entertaining myself up there."

MY WALL MURAL
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
Hello KISS,

I love everything about you and I am constantly creating new works of art that focus on you, this is one of them. I painted this mural on my bedroom wall in 2009, its 6x7 feet and I looked at and copied free hand from a 4x4 inch CD booklet picture. I jammed out the entire time I was painting it to one band, none other or better than KISS! Hope you like it!

Rodrigo Dippold of KISS Army Brazil says "This ad is a farce. No invite for KISS to the Rock in Rio festival and yet the ad uses their makeup."

Thanks to KISS Army Brazil for sending us this...and Jill Cataldo for the translation!

MY PAUL STANLEY TRIBUTE
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
I went and saw KISS in concert for the first time in Everett this past June. I must say, I instantly fell in love with Paul! Which inspired me to get a dedication tattoo for my 30th birthdayday in Las Vegas. The tattoo artist said it was the coolest dedication tattoo he has seen yet. LOVE YOU PAUL!!!!! Now I am branded with your star and your rose. :) Amanda

KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
KISS IS EVERYWHERE!

Hi KISS!

We work at State Farm in Florida and we have a costume contest every year. Last year's theme was Rock and Roll and we decided to dress up like “THE BEST”!!!

We had a complete intro including body guards, fans screaming, and your music playing. Needless to say, we WON! The president of the Florida division is a HUGE fan of Kiss and he LOVED our costumes. We’re all women that work here and we had SO MUCH fun.

I just wanted to pass along this picture..

PS: Gene - We LOVE your show and watch it religiously.

I hope all is well with you!

God Bless,
Bree
