On this day in KISStory, October 6, 2009 - KISS released their SONIC BOOM album exclusively at Walmart. The album became KISS' highest charting US album ever, reaching #1 on Billboard's Top Rock Albums and #2 on Billboard Top 200.

SONIC BOOM was recorded at Conway Recording Studios in Hollywood, CA and produced by Paul Stanley.

SONIC BOOM was released exclusively in the US at Walmart in a three disc digipak, which included the new album, the album KISS Klassics (a completely re-recorded greatest hits), a six song live DVD recorded in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and a 20 page booklet.

The album was also released on limited edition 180 gram vinyl exclusively on KISSOnline. It was pressed into five colors (red, green, black, blue and purple) with 1000 copies pressed of each.

Paul Stanley on Sonic Boom: "We are all very proud of it and blown away by the incredible reviews it is getting worldwide. Many people have asked us how we managed to capture the fire and spirit that's in all the songs, in all the playing and in all the singing."

"It's what happens when a band loves its fans, loves being together and loves making great rock and roll..."

A new chapter has been written in the KISS/Cadillac saga — literally. A just published book, “Nothin’ To Lose: The Making of KISS (9172-1975)” by Ken Sharp with Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley, features a 22 page chapter devoted entirely to Cadillac. Sharp not only recounts the now legendary rock and roll event, but offers fresh insights and perspectives.

As the main architect of the KISS visit to Cadillac on October 9, 1975, I’ve retold the story countless times in print, online, on the KISSology DVD, and on television, most recently for ESPN. I’m included in this book, but what makes this retelling different from all others is that Sharp has included a wide variety of other voices and their recollections really make the story a far richer account of what happened.

“It was a special experience for me,” Sharp told me. “Growing up I read about this event and it was something I wish I could have attended. Interviewing the people in Cadillac associated with the visit allowed me to relive that time. The Cadillac chapter is one of my favorite chapters in the book.”

What Sharp has done is present an oral history by letting the people associated with KISS tell their stories. This includes not only Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, Ace Frehley, and Peter Criss (the original lineup for the band), but also fans, booking agents, photographers, management, producers, promoters, roadies, and music journalists.

KISS is considered one of the greatest American rock bands in history--they've sold more than 100 million albums and continue to sell out arenas around the world.

Bassist Gene Simmons is known for his monstrously long tongue, spitting fire, and recently singing the national anthem, which he did again last Sunday in London for the Vikings game.

The legendary Gene Simmons joined 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS via satellite to talk about football and his television show.
