BID ON BUNDLE TO HELP OUR FRIEND RUBEN
KISSONLINE.com
Ruben Velasco is a 39-year old professional touring guitar technician who has worked with Rick Springfield, John5 of the Rob Zombie band and many others. In his battle against his stage four cancer, some of the biggest names in music have stepped forward with one-of-a-kind artifacts to auction off on his behalf including KISS, Weezer, Sammy Hagar, Maroon 5, and the Goo Goo Dolls. “Rock for Ruben” culminates with a special benefit concert at the House Of Blues on the Sunset Strip in Los Angeles on August 20th.

Autographed KISS Memorabilia Bundle

The ultimate KISS prize bundle is also the ultimate tribute to a member of the KISS Army. When super-fan Ruben Velasco was diagnosed with cancer, the legendary rockers stepped in to help with this incredible set of autographed music memorabilia. It's a veritable cornucopia of amazing gear: an Epiphone Les Paul guitar signed by lead guitarist Tommy Thayer (plus a case), an exclusive KISS Pearl Snare Drum signed by drummer Eric Singer, a dangerously rock 'n' roll axe bass guitar signed by none other than Gene Simmons (plus a case), and a Washburn Starfire guitar signed by Paul Stanley. It's enough to rock and roll all night with your own KISS-inspired band, or just display it all in the best KISS exhibit this side of the Rock Hall of Fame.

One thing that becomes perfectly clear early in our conversation with Paul Stanley of KISS is that he doesn’t give a damn what the critics think. Instead, it’s the fans that have followed KISS since day one of their 40-year history as a group that really matter to the longtime singer and guitarist. During a phone call prior to the band’s current tour with Def Leppard, which stops in at Blossom Music Center this week, Stanley was happy to tell us exactly why the opinions of critics, “present company excluded,” as he added, don’t hold a lot of weight in his world.

“They didn’t go to school to get a degree in being critics — in a sense, they’re entertainers and they’re given a lot of credence by some people and ignored by others,” he says. “I don’t need somebody to tell me what good food is. Good food is what I swallow and bad food is what I spit out. Likewise, I don’t need to be educated about art or music, because it’s totally subjective. The people that count are the people who pay hard-earned money for tickets, hard-earned money for CDs, hard-earned money for T-shirts, belt buckles or whatever. So why would I chase the approval of people who really haven’t taken the test? So no, not at all. You’d have to ask the millions of people who are happy that we’ve done it. To this day, I still have issues with critics and with politics of critics and I am proud of what I’ve done and proud to continue doing it.”

From the band’s earliest days, Stanley says that they always knew what they wanted to do as a group and although they certainly made a big statement with their makeup, they wanted to make an even bigger statement with their music.

KISS wouldn't be KISS without the spectacle, and the band certainly wasn't skimping at its Alpine Valley Music Theatre show Friday as part of its 40th anniversary tour with co-headliner Def Leppard.

Fireworks erupted with the 75-minute set opener "Psycho Circus" — and popped during practically every song afterward; sparks even shot skyward from co-frontman Paul Stanley's guitar, "triggering" booming bursts above him for "Lick It Up." A dense fog shrouded the band at multiple points in the night and blasted down from above, as if the stage production itself was literally blowing off steam. There were flame throwers too, and co-frontman Gene Simmons spit fire at the end of "Hotter Than Hell."

But the greatest special effect was the showmanship of Simmons and Stanley — especially impressive considering the men are in their 60s and have been sporting the metal-studded black costumes and Kabuki-like face paint since the '70s.
