KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
KISS IS EVERYWHERE!

Dear KISS,

I would like to let you know that my dance studio is performing to a mix of your amazing songs entitled 'Party Everyday.' We have five boys in our dance studio and thought this would be a great idea for our big production number. Since KISS only has four members, we took our youngest male dancer and made him 'mini' Gene Simmons. I am Ace Frehley, the space man.

We are competing in the nationals in July!

Sincerely,

Matthew Palumbo and all of us at Stella's Dancers' Studio.

KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
KISS IS EVERYWHERE!

KISS,

I'm a Speech instructor at my local college. I often use KISS as an example in my lesson plans. My class has watched several KISS press conferences and parts of a concert to illustrate the public speaking skills of celebrities. KISS has been such an inspiration throughout my life, there's no way not to include them. Thanks for all the life lessons and for keeping the magic alive all these years.

CELEBRITY CHEF LIST KISS AS A CULINARY INFLUENCE

by Greg Morabito

In the April issue of Guitar Aficionado, celebrity chef and bestselling author Rocco Dispirito reveals that he got into the restaurant business because he wanted money to build his record collection. Says Dispirito:

"As a child growing up in the Seventies, I was big time into Kiss. Their album 'Love Gun' came out when I was around 11 years old, and I had to have it. I asked my Mom for the money to buy it, and she said to me (in thick Italian accent) "You want the money? You go get a job." I didn't even know I could get a job at that age."

But get a job he did - one that taught him how to win over the public with the quick flash of a smile:

"I made 50 cents an hour and fell in love with the business. The idea that, just by cutting a slice of pizza, pouring a fountain soda, smiling a little, I could make someone's day a little better, totally hooked me."

SHORTLIST
The KISS hellrasier lists his all-time animated favourites

1. Max Fleischer's Superman

These original animations by Max Fleischer were like little movies and so realistically drawn. Seeing them as a kid, my jaw would drop. Like Fleischer, other major cartoonists like Stan Lee, Jack Kirby and Bob Kane who did Batman, were almost always exclusively Jewish and created these kinds of superheroes with secret identities. The secret is that Superman is really Jewish.

2. Michigan J Frog

He first appeared in a fifties Warner Bros short (One Froggy Evening). A construction worker finds a century old suitcase in a building's cornerstone and out comes this frog bursting into song with top hat and cane. With dollar signs in his eyes the man puts him in front of an audience but the frog doesn't sing and he loses all his money. So the frog's put back into the suitcase and the situation repeats itself in the 21st century. It shows the greed in man.

L.A. TIMES
Corporate meets entertainment at the opening and closing of each trading day. What better place to bring KISS and Dr Pepper together?

By Tina Susman

KISS guitarist Paul Stanley fluffed his thick, shaggy hair as bassist Gene Simmons fidgeted in the background, their eyes looped in black makeup, faces painted chalky white. As the seconds counted down to 4 p.m., Stanley leaned on the green button in front of him.

"Clang, clang, clang!" went the bell as the clock struck the top of the hour.

Flap, flap, flap went Simmons' famous tongue, stretching to the tip of his chin and back again.

"Bang!" went the gavel, which Stanley brought down with a thud. The white-haired man next to him, Larry Young, head of Dr Pepper Snapple Group, smiled gamely and hoisted a Dr Pepper Cherry soda.

It was closing time at the New York Stock Exchange, and if it weren't for the fact that a Scottish terrier named Sadie, the Aflac duck, Sports Illustrated swimsuit models and snowboard champ Shaun White would soon stand on the same platform, the KISS-meets-Dr-Pepper spectacle might have been more of -- well -- a spectacle.

But abnormal has become normal on the ornate bell podium. The stage once reserved for corporate leaders has become one of the nation's highest profile red carpets, a result of the global melding of the corporate world with entertainment, sports, politics and social causes.

MY QUILT
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
Hi KISS,

I entered a Rock N Roll Challenge with Quilting Arts Magazine back in 2008 with a mini quilt. The one I made was Gene Simmons' face. I even incorporated a "pull string" on the back that makes his tounge wiggle. It was displayed in the magazine in the April/May 2009 issue, and it went on tour with the magazine for a year!

Thanks, Sue Perkins
