TRIBUTE SHOW IN POLAND FOR DIABETES!
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
KISS IS EVERYWHERE!

Hey KISS!

I just wanted to tell you about a KISS tribute show that myself and some of my classmates put on at my high school in Warsaw, Poland. We love you guys so much! You have inspired us to do something that has never been done at our school before.

We performed a full KISS set list in costumes and makeup (as you can see we have the official boots!) for the students, parents and faculty at the school. SMOOCH has been working so hard since January preparing for this show. And because your "cause" on the Hottest Show on Earth Tour was so inspiring, we decided to raise money for a cause too.

I'm the Catman and drummer of SMOOCH, and I'm also a type 1 diabetic. So since January we have been raising donations for a foundation that is very near and dear to my heart. The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. So many people saw how much this meant to me and my band mates that we earned a lot of donations.

The concert was on Friday April 8th, and it was a huge success! It was such a great feeling! No wonder you guys have been around so long! Before the show we held a mini "Meet & Greet" session (courtesy of our school's amazing photo teacher) where friends and family could come up to the photo room and take pictures with us. It was all very cool! We even signed a few autographs! It was so awesome!

After that we hit the stage playing KISS classics such as "Love Gun" sung by our Starchild Ryan, "War Machine" sung by myself, "Rocket Ride" sung by our Spaceman and "Parasite" sung by our Demon! It was such a cool night, it was loads of fun and we just want to thank you for the memories.

Because of KISS I have met band mates, and friends that I will never forget. It's because of you guys that I've been able to live the dream, even if it was for only one night. Thank you for getting us through the hard times in life, and for reminding us that "No matter what trouble there is" we all deserve to ROCK AND ROLL ALL NITE AND PARTY EVERYDAY! Thank You Again! Love from Poland!

Matthew - Catman of SMOOCH!

PAINTING WITH !
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
My Story

My name is Nate and I live in Neenah, WI. I’m 52 years old and have been a KISS fan for over 37 years. I’ve been to numerous KISS concerts, my first one being in 1975. My favorite one was on December 3, 1977 in Dane County Coliseum in Madison, WI. My most recent ones were this past summer in Milwaukee, Indianapolis, Saint Paul, and Chicago. This was the first time my wife ever saw KISS live, and just loved their performance. We are looking forward to their concert dates in both Minnesota and Wisconsin this summer!

My all time favorite albums and album covers are Destroyer and Love Gun. In my 1977 art class I drew out Destroyer and started to paint it. But due to Epilepsy I was unable to continue. I was suffering from as many as 20 seizures a day and the medications were causing tremors and blurred vision. I tucked the painting away with the hope of completing it someday. Well in 1997 I had corrective brain surgery which has left me nearly seizure free these past 14 years. I am proud to say that three years ago, some thirty plus years later, I completed Destroyer. These past three winters I’ve completed many other paintings as well.

KISS may never realize or understand what an important role they played in my life. Their music brought me back up after epilepsy and seizures would knock me down. KISS and their music are the “heroes in my world”. I could not picture my life without KISS being part of it. It would have had an important piece missing. In a sense I would have been living in a world without these heroes in my life. Yes Gene’s song “A World Without Heroes” says it all, makes a lot of sense!

Thank you for keeping KISS alive. You taught me long ago to never give up if you feel that something is worth fighting for. Thank you for being such an inspiration in my life.

Sincerely,
A KISS Army Fan

CELEBRATING WITH IN HOLLAND
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
Last weekend Dutch tribute band KISS on the Rocks celebrated their 5th anniversary, as well as the birthday of their beloved tour manager 'Tattoo' Hans. Hans is arguably the biggest KISS collector in Holland, and expanded his collection with an official Paul Stanley Flying V guitar, given to him by the tribute band. Pictured is Hans, who has KISS tattood all over his body, in front of replicas of the KISS Alive! 35 tour stairs, which he recently developed for KISS on the Rocks. And of course, he's holding 2 KISS birthday cakes.

Congratulations Tattoo Hans!

CARRYING ON THE TRADITION
KOL LETTERS
Like mother, like son!

Here are two generations of KISS fans. The first is me taken 25 years ago when I was just 3 months old. KISS did not have kids' shirts then so my Dad saw the band on the Asylum Tour and put me in his shirt. The next picture is my son, 3 months old in his first official licensed KISS shirt! Look’s like we are carrying on the family tradition. My Dad can't wait until he's old enough to go with us!
