AVA SINGS BETH
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
My six year old daughter, Ava, is a huge KISS fan and Gene Simmons fan. She was the only first grader in her school to wear her precious KISS shirt to the first day of school. For Christmas she asked Santa for tickets to a KISS concert, unfortunately Santa wasn’t able to bring concert tickets this year, but she was satisfied with other KISS merchandise.

Our school theatre was vandalized on Halloween Eve and badly burnt, to celebrate the restoration we hosted a 24 hour concert this January. Ava performed Beth wearing her Gene Simmons costume, much to the amusement of her teacher and the audience.

I have attached the video of her performance. It would make her year to know that Gene himself had seen her performance. Frankly, I’m not sure she would come down from the thrill it would produce.

Thank you so kindly,
Sarah Barber

SIXTY SECONDS OF HEAVEN
Mr. Speed Interview – Playing Akron Civic Saturday January 22

We love tribute bands, and we’ve loved KISS since, oh, about forever. So obviously a band of maniacs who dedicated themselves to bringing the best possible KISS concert our new hometown are gonna be people we like. So here’s our interview with Rich Kosak, aka ‘Starchild’ from Mr. Speed, who are playing in Akron at the Civic on Saturday, January 22.

60: When did you first see and / or hear KISS? Was it a “oh wow” moment right away? Has your love for them ever faded (say during ‘The Elder’ era?) If so, what got you back?

Rich Kosak: “The first time that I saw KISS was on the Paul Lynde Halloween Special. I remember it being very explosive if you will and I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. Almost the very next day it seemed I saw the commercial for the KISS radio. I heard the beginning riff and saw the radio explode on our television and I thought to myself that I have to find out as much as I can about who these guys were. Ask me if my love for the band has ever faded during any period of their career, and I would tell you that it hasn’t. I have looked at every phase of their career as another opportunity to get more into them. In the late ’70′s and even through the ’80′s and ’90′s those eras seemed innocent. Every period of the bands career played an important part of my development as both a fan and a person.”

AUDIO "SIGHTINGS" ON THE BIG SCREEN
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
Yet more examples of KISS' cultural influence as two recent movies contain KISS songs -- one more obvious than the other. In "The Dilemma," Detroit Rock City blasts from the screen as the characters played by Vince Vaughn and Kevin James head to Detroit for a meeting with an auto manufacturer.

The second audio "sighting" is not quite as evident, but it is noticeable if you're a KISS fan. In Sophia Coppola's new film "Somewhere," the chords and melody of "Love Theme From KISS" are playing in the background as the lead character (Stephen Dorff) shows up to a party.

KISS truly is everywhere!!

Thanks,
Alan Bunnell

DOGS AT ZOMBIE WALK
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
KISS is everywhere!

Check out these KISS dogs spotted at the New Jersey Zombie Walk. The 4,093 zombies on the boardwalk in Ashbury Park, N.J. set a new Guinness World Record on Oct. 30, 2010. I was one of the zombies, and while I was there I took this picture of the two dogs dressed as Gene and Paul. The owner had the masks on the back of the dogs heads and it really looked like Gene and Paul's hair around the mask.

Thanks,
Nick

ROCKS NY LOFT HOSTEL
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
KISS IS EVERYWHERE!

Hi KISS,

I'm a Graphic Designer and I would like to share this little tribute I did on a wall from the NEW YORK LOFT HOSTEL. I designed the branding of the place and did all its graphic concept and decor as well based on New York City icons, for which I couldn't miss KISS, of course.

The hostel is doing great and has been ranked #3 in the top10 US Hostels. It is located in Bushwick, in the east side of Williamsburg, and is a 1913 building restored and opened as a beautiful Loft Hostel. The KISS wall is the artwork for the arrow pointing at the Rock and Roll All Nite Room, as each room door (over 60) has a specific New York City culture theme.

You can see more on www.nylofthostel.com.

I hope you enjoy it as much as everyone as it seems to be everybody's favorite wall in the place.

Thanks, and keep on rocking!!
Federico Rozo

Death sucks. It's sad, strange, scary and unfortunately inevitable. And what's worse is that, no matter how unfair it seems, when it comes to your passions and material possessions, you-as the saying goes-"can't take it with you."

But if you're a geek, if you've been tempted to legally change your name to James T. Kirk, think of baseball as a religion or wear eight-inch platform dragon boots to the mailbox, then the good souls at Eternal Image are making a strong bid to help you betray that train of thought.

The company-incorporated in 2006-has been making news and waves by selling collectibles to corpses, giving your busted shell one last blast of nerd-tastic pop-culture glory. First with a series of licensed Major League Baseball products including coffins and urns, then with the intergalactic, ghost-of-Roddenberry-approved STAR TREK urns (with the words "To Boldly Go..." emblazoned on their fronts) and now with a newly minted (the product will be officially unveiled later this month), Gene Simmons-sanctioned KISS casket.
