DOES A HOMECOMING

Yes, KISS actually played a high school's Homecoming weekend, back in 1975.

It was 1974 -- the straitlaced football heyday of Woody Hayes and Bo Schembechler -- and in northern Michigan, you could hear a pin drop in the way-too-tight Cadillac High School football locker room before games.

That's when an enterprising assistant coach named Jim Neff had a brainstorm. Why not rev up the Cadillac defense by playing a little pregame rock and roll? Like, for example, KISS?

When the bold plan led to a big winning streak -- and a conference title -- Jim Neff and the band he loved hatched a daring plan... to make Homecoming the following year an event the town of Cadillac would never forget.

Nearly 35 years later, no one has.

KISS gives to family in need while Extreme Makeover: Home Edition ratings spike.

On last Sunday night's episode of ABC's Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, rock icons KISS (www.KISSonline.com) showed their good will to a family in need while at the same time helping Extreme Makeover: Home Edition viewership grow by 2 million viewers from the previous week's telecast.

Also for the episode, Marvel Entertainment designed a Super Hero themed boy's room and created a custom comic book cover for the boy.

GERMAN FANS TURN ON THE NIGHT
WETTEN, DASS
During tonight's episode of Germany's "Wetten, Dass..?" ("Wanna Bet?") the show's nightly "bet" asked for 1,500 KISS fans to come to the filming wearing KISS makeup. Could enough fans line up in letter outlines to spell "KISS," shining flashlights upward to create a live KISS logo? KISS later came outside and joined the fans for "God Gave Rock and Roll to You!"

ESPN TO AIR PIECE SUNDAY
KISSONLINE
KISS-TORY IN THE MAKING

ESPN will air a KISS piece during SportsCenter on Sunday at 10 a.m., 6 p.m. and 11 p.m.

It was 1974 at Cadillac High School in Central Michigan, and you could hear a pin drop in the way-too-tight locker room before football games. That's when an enterprising assistant coach named Jim Neff had an idea -- why not rev up the defense by playing a little pregame rock 'n' roll? Like, for example, KISS? When the bold plan led to a big winning streak and a conference title, Neff and the band he loved hatched a daring plan to bring KISS to Cadillac's 1975 Homecoming. Chris Connelly looks back at two outrageous days in the history of high school football.

KISS AT HIGH SCHOOL HOME COMING

KISS!

At Wilmot Union High School, during homecoming week, our students had to dress as their favorite rock star/group. Their very own principal, being the #1 Kiss fan in the history of Wilmot Union High School and maybe the whole world, poses with a couple of our best dressed Kiss fans!

Thanks,

BEST DAY AT WORK EVER COURTESY OF !
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
Dear KISS & the KISS Army,

Thanks to my love of KISS I managed to score the best day of work ever... on release of a guitar based video game I casually suggested demo-ing the product to customers dressed as a rockstar. My manager jumped at the idea and I got to spend the entire day as Paul Stanley leathered UP for some guitar action!

See you in London!

Hi KISS & the KISS ARMY!

20 years ago, an artist known as "Coluche" founded a non profit organization named "Les restos du coeur" (heart's restaurants). This foundation helps homeless (and also poor) people to have a hot meal or something to eat for their family. Coluche died in a bike accident, but his friends make the show (and the foundation) go on. The foundation earns money with a single made with some of the biggest French artists every year. The artists perform under the name "Les Enfoires". After the single is released, they tour in France. This year, the single is the KISS hit "I Was Made For Lovin' You"! Below is the video for the song...enjoy!

THEMED BACHELOR PARTY
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
Dear KISS,

I just wanted to share a picture from a dear friend's bachelor party from this past weekend in Duluth, MN. KISS is what brought this group of friends together, one by one, going back 23 years for the two Gene's of the group. Many concerts and Halloweens later...we thought this was this best way to pay tribute during this bachelor party!

Thank you for everything - keep rocking.

Joe Mantel
