MEETS PHANTOM TICKET & LETTER
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
Back in 1978, I was one of the lucky 8000 people to have won tickets to see KISS play at Magic Mountain. May 19, 1978!!! I was 14 and it was my first concert. From that night on, KISS was my favorite band!

Number one Dutch Popgroup 'Bløf' awards Photographer with a KISS

Thanks to Rutger De Groot for sending this story to KISSOnline!

Last Sunday, famous Dutch popgroup 'Bløf' handed out the Golden Master Camera Award to Stefan Schipper, rock photographer extraordinaire. Stefan is known for his photography for bands like Metallica, Slash and Biohazard. His picture of Gene Simmons at Arrow Classic Rock was selected as the Best Rock Cover Photo by Aardschok magazine.

Stefan worked on many album covers for Bløf, and when the band was invited to hand him the award, they insisted to go full circle and to present in KISS-theme. Not only is Stefan a huge KISS fan, Bløf also acknowledged that they used to dress up as KISS before becoming multi-platinum recording artists. Bløf invited well known KISS tribute band KISS on the Rocks to perform at the event and to hand out the award with them.

Peter Slager, founding member of Bløf, comments: "It was a treat hearing KISS on the Rocks open with 2 of my favorite songs, 'Detroit rock city' en 'Strutter'. Solid as a rock!'
