COLUMBUS LOCAL NEWS

A host of creepy creatures descended on Creekside Park for "Creepside" last week, although cold winds and cold rain may have kept quite a few ghostly ghouls and goblins at home.

Cheeks may have been pink from the cold, but excited kids dressed as witches, warlocks, ghosts, rock stars and even baby birds still skipped excitedly from booth to booth and store to store, holding out trick or treat bags for Halloween treats, while parents tried their best to keep up.

Jagger Henthorn, 3, of Gahanna, made the scene dressed as legendary rock superstar Gene Simmons.

FACE PAINTED & PASSIONATE FOR
VIRGINIAN-PILOT
By Mike Kernels

From the mind of Freddie Hamm:

KISS concert. T-minus several hours and anxiously counting.

KISS T-shirt. Check.

KISS belt buckle. Check.

KISS body spray. Seriously. "It actually smells good." Make that a big check.

KISS face paint. Ready to be applied. Estimated time: 45 minutes - minimum.

"I'm that fanatical," says Hamm, 18, of Virginia Beach.

And he's not alone. For a legion of KISS fans, painting their faces for a concert is like an American Express card: You don't leave home without it.

"Just throwing it on is not an option. If you're a diehard fan, you want to do it just like them. Attention to detail is important."

Because the makeup of KISS singer Paul Stanley, for instance, consists of only a white face and a black star over one eye, it's an easy 20 minutes for Hamm.

Guitarist Tommy Thayer? That's 45 minutes.

Frontman Gene Simmons? Also 45. "Unless you're doing his hair," Hamm says.

To get drummer Eric Singer right for Friday's show, Hamm will use a combination of white, black, silver and green creams, lipstick and something that doesn't come with a bar code: patience.

"It is," he admits, "a pain... to put on."

Los Premios MTV to honor Latin pop and rock in LA

MTV will roll its raucous red carpet across continents with its eighth annual Los Premios MTV honoring the best of the year's pop, rock and reggaeton from across Latin America.
The multi-city awards show culminates Thursday evening in Los Angeles after kicking off in September with six of 27 awards presented at regional events in Buenos Aires, Mexico City and Bogota.

Winners will receive a "lenguas," the pink tongue-shaped statue inspired by Kiss' Gene Simmons.

NOTE FROM GENE:

The MTV LATIN AWARD (is actually) my tongue.

When I went down to Mexico with our tv show, I actually saw a 5 1/2 foot tall Tongue Statue that people posed next to ...on the red carpet....and when an artist received an MTV Latin Award, they got...my tongue!!!

USA TODAY - COVER STORY

"Look at Kiss culture," says Gene Simmons, radiating pride. "People tattoo their bodies with Kiss faces, name their children after our songs, have Kiss conventions.

"This is Planet Kiss; we just live on it. The stage is holy ground, and what we do is electric church."

Holy hyperbole! The kabuki kibitzers of big-top rock are back in greasepaint and spandex, armed with a new album and a fresh stage spectacle to solidify a legacy built on thundering riffs, pyrotechnics, superheroic role-playing and hucksterism.

The singer/bassist, 60, and guitarist Paul Stanley, 57, are meeting in the Sunset Strip office of manager Doc McGhee to chat up Sonic Boom, Kiss' 19th studio album and first since 1998's Psycho Circus. The album, out today exclusively at Walmart, is a three-disc set with a CD of re-recorded hits and a DVD of a Buenos Aires concert packaged with 11 new songs. It's $12, "the price of a sandwich," Simmons crows.

The band began writing last spring, rehearsed tunes in May and recorded in June, wrapping up Boom by mid-July. Reviews have lauded the album's return to the crunch and muscle of '70s classics Destroyer and Love Gun.

CADILLAC NEWS
By Jeff Broddle

The story that has been told and retold, of the rock band KISS visiting Cadillac in 1975 at the invitation of the Cadillac High School football team, will be retold again, this time by the cable sports network ESPN.

Vikings football coach Jim Webb confirmed Friday that an ESPN crew asked permission to film the homecoming game Friday night. The crew also filmed part of the homecoming parade.

Webb said the players were "pumped" to hear the news that ESPN would be on the sidelines for the game.

"I told the players, in case they needed a little more motivation than homecoming, that some of them might be on national TV," Webb said.
