THIS DAY IN TORY 1973
KISSONLINE.com
On this day in KISStory - December 31, 1973, Gene Simmons caught his hair on fire during KISS' performance at the Academy of Music in New York City.

From Blender Magazine:

As the bombastic Kiss bassist certainly knows, one of the perils of breathing fire is that you can't always control where the fire goes. Problems arose the very first time Simmons attempted the stunt onstage on New Year's Eve 1973, in New York City. Toward the end of "Firehouse," Simmons walked offstage to fill his mouth with kerosene, but when he returned to the center of the stage and blew a large fireball, it set his copiously hair-sprayed locks ablaze. A roadie quickly extinguished the flames with a wet towel, but Simmons hardly learned his lesson: He'd repeat the mishap another half-dozen or so times in his career.

Here's a clip of Gene catching his hair on fire at another KISS show.

KISS IS EVERWHERE!

Thanks to our friend Paul Finn from KISSIN' UK for sending KISSOnline this story!

There's been a couple of KISS references on the BBC celebrity panel show Never Mind The Buzzcocks over the past few weeks, firstly I Was Made For Lovin' You was on the intros round (where contestants have to guess a song by humming the intro, in this case it was Noel Fielding and Pixie Lott), and on last weeks episode Noel Fielding was wearing Paul Stanley make-up for the whole show. Noel is known for being a KISS fan and was present at the Islington show last year.

MY -INSPIRED PAINTING
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
Hello KISS & fellow KISS ARMY members!

I'm a seventeen-year-old art student from California, & I find most of my inspiration in rock bands like KISS, & in other artists like Paul Stanley. I created this self-portrait after a picture I took of myself in my KISS-themed birthday party. I wanted to thank you for inspiring this painting & for creating music that continues to inspire me in many aspects of my life.

Keep Rockin' \m/

Here's a picture of me and a Brazilian friend Ricardo. I'm wearing my old US Army uniform, and my warrior camouflage. It felt so good wearing it again at the KISS Kruise.
