GUIITAR PLAYER
The Holiday 2009 issue of Guitar Player contains over ten pages of KISS coverage! Here are some excerpts from Guitar Player's interview with KISS:

________________________________



Paul Stanley takes KISS back to its roots to unleash a ferocious bombardment of rock and roll thrills

By Michael Molenda

Defensiveness is in the air. Paul Stanley jokes with his crew about how Guitar Player readers have always hated KISS. Gene Simmons dismisses me with "Oh boy, the media is here," and walks into the main studio at Conway Studios in Los Angeles without further comment. I look at Tommy Thayer - who is projecting nothing but good vibes - and still can't help myself from wondering if he thinks I'm going to roast him for daring to be the impostor Spaceman in Ace Frehley's makeup.

I'm further thrown off my game when drummer Eric Singer appears to be the KISS member most excited to talk to Guitar Player. (He doesn't play guitar, but he collects them, and he possesses a truly impressive knowledge of vintage instruments and guitar gear.) All I'm trying to do is listen to the band's first new studio album in more than a decade, and put the guys on the cover of the magazine. Sheesh.

DRESSED TO KILL
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
Hey KISS!

Just wanted to show a picture of us four just before we left for the Winnipeg show. Thought we would go and support you guys "Dressed to Kill", not knowing however it would be a big hit for other fans as it seem we couldn't walk around the concourse for five seconds without someone wanting our pictures, we felt like rock stars.

Just goes to show what legacy you have left over the years, is still as big as ever. Thank you guys for such a great show it was awesome, me and my dad, his friend Denis and his son Joel had the time of our lives, shouting it out loud with thousands. Thank you once again for coming to Winnipeg, hope you guys can come back soon. Remember "WINNIPEG LOVES KISS"

KOMPENDIUM
KISSONLINE
In '77, blood from each member of the rock band KISS was drawn by a registered nurse and poured into vats of red ink used for printing the band's first comic book. It was created by Marvel legend Stan Lee and was the beginning of a hugely successful KISS comic book franchise. All are now out of print.

Now, for the first time, the KISS Kompendium combines the most breathtaking KISS comic books into a lush oversized collector's compilation. Brought to life by graphic illustrations as riveting and hardcore as the band's real-life fire-breathing line-up, the Demon (Gene Simmons), Starchild (Paul Stanley), and the other band members' superhero alter egos defeat evil in over 1200 pages of stunning KISS comics!

This is a book authorized by KISS. KISS founding members Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley have contributed the forewords to this. The book also includes exclusive never-before-seen backstage photos from KISS' newest tour along with commentary by the band-members.

This is a must-have for every KISS fan eagerly awaiting the band's new album, their first in over 10 years, and a perfect holiday gift for comic-book lover to pour over time and time again.

The KISS Kompendium, over 1,200 pages of KISS comics - on sale December 8, 2009 - is available for pre-order at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, WalMart and wherever books are sold.

THIS DUNE BUGGY
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
Hi KISS!

These are a few pictures of our dune buggy named Kiss This!! As you can see, you are the highlight of the paint scheme. We take it out to Glamis, CA and it is a big hit with everyone. It has a Ford Mustang Cobra motor with 500 horsepower!! We have yet to see another one like this. It took two years to be built and worth every penny we paid for it.

Thank you for your time:
Tammy & Mike Huard
