The Hughes Brothers talk KISS

The Hughes Brothers is the collective name for American twin brothers and film directors, producers and writers Albert and Allen Hughes. They are known for co-directing such visceral, and often violent, movies as Menace II Society, From Hell and, their latest - The Book of Eli.

When we were younger, growing up in Detroit, the inevitable yearly Halloween fight would take place: Who was going to be Gene Simmons, "the Demon" of the rock band KISS, that year? We would fight and fight until one of us folded or our mother would settle it by making both of us Gene Simmons. Great! Two half-breed Gene Simmons mutants walking down the block with pillowcases filled with candy. Yeah, Mom, thanks. That's really going to help with the confusion of being a twin.

I do recall that one year one of us folded and went out as Peter Criss' "Catman," black and white make-up running down our cheeks from the tears of disappointment, settling for the lesser known, less exciting member of KISS, who possessed none of Simmons' powers-bloody-mouthed, fire-breathing, serpent-sized, cunnilingus-dazzling tongue!

MY PERMANENT MEMORY!
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
Dear KISS,

Vancouver was my very first KISS concert. I have been a huge fan for some time. Finally, I got to go to a KISS concert. I was so happy I ended up getting the meet and greet package which got me a seat in row two dead center. Meeting KISS was a life changing moment for me. KISS was the band that got me into rock and metal music. If it wasn't for them I wouldn't be currently playing bass and singing lead vocals for my band "Merciful Angel".

So I want to say thank you to all of you guys - Gene,Paul, Tommy, and Eric - for your great dedication to your fans. You guys are great to take the time to meet your fans.The show was amazing. I couldn't believe how great of a show you guys put on. I even got to catch a pick. Paul aimed a pick right at me , when I caught it I was so happy I could of almost shed a tear. This was the best day of my life, I got to meet the guys who changed my life forever, my idols, the hottest band in the world KISS.

I wanted to do something very memorable... So I got all of KISS to sign, then I had the signatures tattooed on to my arm so I had something to remind me of that day for the rest of my life. I just want to say thank you again for every thing that you guys have done for me. Please come back to Vancouver.

Thanks,
Mark Warhurst

Hello KISS & the KISS Army!

Check out these great custom-painted KISS football helmets. I wanted a KISS collectible that no one else had. I love pro football and KISS so I thought these would be perfect. My fellow Kiss friend Brett Resler painted them for me.

Hi KISS!

I'm a long time fan. Bought my first Kiss record in 1976, and are still hanging in there. How's that grab ya?

Came across this picture on the front page of the Danish Hi-Fi magazine, and immediately thought that even a hardworking rockstar needs to take some time off, once in a while...

Enjoy!

Dear KISS,

I had never been to an NCAA game and went to the Gator Bowl for New Years. I just had to go in KISS face in support of my WVU Mountaineers. Several people hugged me and had pics taken with me, even when I went out to eat after the game. It was great fun.

Happy New Year!!!

ARMY IN IRAQ
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
Your Biggest Fans, USAF, AMMO, Balad, Iraq

Hey KISS!

Salutes from the AMMO Air Force troops at Spangdahlem Airbase,Germany. You came to visit us in early 2008, then we got to go see you guys in Luxembourg later that night. The most awesome freakin' concert ever. A little later that year, us AMMO troops were tasked to deploy to Balad, Iraq. To boost our morale a little at work, we decided to order face paint and paint our faces in honor of the "Greatest Band in the World."

We had a good time parading around the bomb dump in 130 degree heat and sand storms, showing off our artwork. Hope you enjoy the picture as much as we enjoyed taking it. Thanks again for still kicking ass for us younger generations. I grew up listening to you from my parents and still love to listen to you today. See you at Rock Am Ring later this year!

Latest installment of popular 'Trust Me, I'm a Dr' campaign features the entire KISS lineup

Dr Pepper, the oldest major soft drink in the U.S., is teaming up with legendary rockers KISS as a first-time advertiser during Super Bowl XLIV. The ad will air in the second quarter of the big game and feature Gene Simmons returning as "Dr. Love" in the next evolution of the brand's "Trust Me, I'm a Dr" campaign. Paul Stanley and the entire KISS lineup will join Simmons to describe Dr Pepper Cherry's uniquely smooth taste - achieved with a "kiss" of cherry flavor.

"Being a part of the big game gives us access to nearly 100 million viewers. We're taking this opportunity to reach as many fans as possible to promote our innovative Dr Pepper Cherry flavor and celebrate our 125th Anniversary. This is just the right ad at just the right time," said Tony Jacobs, vice president of marketing for Dr Pepper.
