CUSTOM HOCKEY MASKS AUCTIONED FOR CHARITY
CLICK HERE to bid now

By Brian Stubits

KISS does one performance at an outdoor NHL game in Los Angeles and suddenly they are everywhere in the hockey world. The power of makeup and rock is strong.

Gene Simmons got to live most hockey fans' dreams by putting NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman into a headlock. That made for one heck of a photo that should hang in the NHL offices forever more.

Now the NHL is auctioning off custom made KISS goalie masks, each of which was autographed by the band members; Simmons, Paul Stanley, Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer.

From the NHL's auction site, here's a little more information.

To commemorate the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series game at Dodger Stadium, four goalie masks were designed and painted by renowned sports artist David Arrigo. Each mask features the Anaheim Ducks and Los Angeles Kings logos alongside KISS Imagery and/or the likeness of the four members of the legendary rock band and 2014 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees KISS.

Masks will be auctioned one at a time:

Mask 1 – Tuesday, January 28 2014 – Friday, February 7, 2014
Mask 2 – Friday, February 7 – Monday, February 17, 2014
Mask 3 – Monday, February 17, 2014 – Thursday, February 27, 2014
Mask 4 – Thursday, February 27, 2014 – Sunday, March 2 2014

Procees of the auction will benefit the Kings Care Foundation and the Anaheim Ducks Foundation, fair considering the were the teams playing the game that the KISS rockers were performing at.

These masks aren't going to come cheap. With more than a week left, bidding is already more than $1,200. That's the cost for awesome masks with rock legends on them.

To see all of the masks up close, you can check them out on artits David Arrigo's website -

KISS Kids written by Chris Ryall & Tom Waltz

Reviewed by: Conan Tigard

KISS Kids is a wonderful read that I just couldn't put down. I joined the KISS Army way back in the mid-1970's and have been a fan ever since. I never saw them play live, but has always enjoyed listening to their music. In fact, since I have twenty of their album ripped onto my computer, while I read this graphic novel, had their music playing. It really enhanced my reading of this fun-filled book.

The concept of a book for early chapter readers about a hard rock band may seem a little strange to most people, but it really works. The children that read this book don't have to know who the band KISS is to enjoy it, but will certainly know more about them after they finish then when they started. The four main characters are just that, a bunch of cleverly created characters that practically jump off the page. I loved the way that Chris Ryall and Tom Waltz used their creative juices to turn Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Ace Frehley, and Peter Criss into smaller versions of their adult selves. Their imagination enabled them to wonder how the band members would have acted as children while already having formed the band KISS and have them already wearing their stage makeup.

The artwork by Jose Holder is what really sold me on this book. It is fantastic! Every page was perfectly imagined and drawn to perfection. I soaked in each page and wondered how it could get any better. Then I would turn the page and discover another wonderfully drawn page. Wow! that is all I can say. Wow!

MORE THAN A ROCK BAND, IS A BRAND
The Marketing of Rock 'N Roll - Part One Radio Special - Under The Influence with Terry O'Reilly.

Just in time for the Grammys, we air a special two-part episode on Marketing Rock 'N Roll.

We'll trace the marketing of rock all the way back to its origins with Elvis Presley and his wily manager Colonel Tom Parker. We'll tell the story of how the Beatles lost millions by not following Elvis's blueprint, and how the Rolling Stones borrowed a strategy right out of the books of Madison Avenue to compete against the Fab Four.

And what show on marketing rock 'n roll would be complete without mentioning the biggest marketing machine in rock and roll history - KISS.
