Music Makeover

by Andrea Eger

Tulsa's Wilson Middle School was transformed into a TV set on Wednesday for a segment of ABC's "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition," featuring legendary rock band KISS.

The band helped surprise the entire school with a presentation of about $100,000 in new musical instruments from Mr. Holland's Opus Foundation at an afternoon assembly.

"In public education, there is no crisis greater than the lack of money going into musical enrichment," KISS guitarist Paul Stanley said at the assembly. "The government needs to understand musical programs in schools is not a luxury. It's a necessity."

THEMED CUPCAKES
CLEVERCUPCAKES.BLOGSPOT.com
This is one of those orders I couldn't wait to get started on. I received an e-mail from a woman who was throwing a 50th birthday party for her boyfriend. Apparently he used to be lead singer and guitarist in a rock band. As a surprise she invited all of is old rock band buddies so they could all play live music outdoors together. Since her boyfriend was a huge KISS fan she requested KISS themed cupcakes and a KISS themed cake for the party.

The cake was decorated with silver dragees lined up to make the KISS logo. The cupcakes were decorated with handcrafted fondant KISS themed decorations including make-up, the KISS logo, the devil's horn hand gesture, and a zippo lighter complete with flame.

I so wish I could have been a fly on the wall at that party!

They were expecting Santa, but got 'Gene Simmons' first - and they liked it.

Oakville residents voted Tom Linhares' Gene Simmons' Family KISSmas float, runner-up in the new Oakville's Choice Award for the Santa Parade.

"Tom said the looks on the faces of not only the kids, but the adults, as he went by, were something he'll never forget," said Pam Damoff, chair of the 2009 Santa Claus Parade.

DAUGHTER'S FIRST CONCERT
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
Dear KISS,

I just want to thank you for making my childhood so great! I would have never thought that 31 years after becoming a fan that I would have the opportunity to take my eight year old daughter to see a KISS show. My daughter had a blast at the show and was singing along to all of the songs and other KISS fans were giving her high fives. This photo was taken at the Dec. 1st Glendale, AZ show. Thanks for making such a monumental occasion possible for me and my family!

Best,
Kevin Schoeff
