IS EVERYWHERE!

Monsters of Folk, the "supergroup" consisting of My Morning Jacket's Jim James, Conor Oberst, M. Ward and Mike Mogis, celebrated Halloween at Kentucky's Louisville Palace. The group played its standard mix of originals and individual member solo cuts before taking a twenty-minute break near the end of the night.

The musicians then returned in full KISS costumes and makeup for covers for the glam-rock band's "Detroit Rock City" and "Rock and Roll All Nite!"

Meanwhile, over in New Orleans at the Voodoo Music Festival, the Drive-By Truckers Patterson Hood offered his own nod to KISS by performing in the signature makeup of the Spaceman.

MORE THAN 30 YEARS AS A FAN
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
I'm an Argentine KISS fan since 1979. When I was 9 years old I fell in love with the band of my dreams and I'm still a big KISS fan.

I want to share with you all my first picture as a KISS fan. This picture was taken during my birthday back in 1980... I'm also wearing my first KISS T-shirt.

Thanks KISS!!! I will always be a KISS Fan...

KIDS KEEP ROCKING WITH
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
I was reading the Spanish newspaper El Mercurio and saw an article about children wanting to be in rock bands. In this story, a 9 year old boy (big KISS fan) created his birthday invitation using the Psycho Circus cover art, and he said in the article that he's very interested in learning how to play guitar because of KISS (how cute!) I just think this is a very good example of how you influence people of all generations!

KIDS CANCER GOOD-BYE
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
Dear KISS: Just wanted to let you know about a great group of students who decided to paint their faces like your great group in order to raise funds and awareness for cancer.

In Canada, the schools take one day a year to have a walk in memory of Terry Fox - a great Canadian who tried to walk across Canada to raise funds and awareness about cancer. The Grade Four students from Eric G. Lambert School in Churchill Falls, Labrador created their own banner and decided to paint their faces to really get into the spirit. Hope you like the shot.

MENTIONED ON DEAL OR NO DEAL
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
I was watching Deal or No Deal late last night.

Howie Mandel asked the man who was the contestant, "What will do you with the million dollars if you win it?" He said, "Well, I'm turning 50 this year, and as a gift to myself, I want to throw a big party and hire KISS to play for my birthday!"

His wife and daughters all stood there shaking their heads to say yes, that's exactly what he wants.

The contestant went home with about $9,000. Howie told him for that, he could probably find some neighbors to put makeup on and sing for him..!

Totally caught me by surprise because I didn't this guy would be into KISS. Pretty funny!

WESTERN AUSTRALIA TODAY
Editor by day... "Paul Stanley" by night

By Daile Pepper

By day he cracks the whip as a team of journalists produce the city's biggest free entertainment newspaper, Xpress.

By night - on occasion - he throws on a wig, five inch heels, masses of make-up and a body-hugging suit and hits the stage.

Bob Gordon, the editor of Xpress Magazine, fronts KISS tribute band KISStake.

Hidden under the outfit made famous by Paul Stanley, Gordon has played in this fun band with various West Australian musicians from bands including End of Fashion for years.

They let loose and put on a big show, all under the cover of costume. It allows Gordon to take on the persona of a mega rock star and let loose.

"It's hard to be shy when you put all that on," he says.
