WEIRD THINGS PEOPLE DO WITH MONEY
MSN
Money talks -- and sometimes it carries an extra message. Americans regularly deface currency to tout an interest group, register a protest or just laud a rock band. Kiss is one of the world's most successful rock bands, with at least 3,000 licensed products. It has pitched such things as Kiss Kondoms, Kiss Kaskets (really) and the Kiss Visa card. The band's front man and co-founder, Gene Simmons, claims that Kiss can make $1 million or more a show. Its fans are rabid and have been since the group formed in 1972 in New York.

KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
Hi KISS!

I thought you would want to see this fabulous painting "KISS Cows", by artist Lionel Talaro. He is a fan, of course, and this is his homage to the band. The painting is an oil on canvas diptych, 18" x 48". It is the icon image for Lionel's show "Divine Bovine", which opened here last night.

My Best,

CD EXCLUSIVELY AT WALMART
KISSONLINE.com
KISS and Walmart announced today that SONIC BOOM-the band's highly anticipated CD, and its first new material in 11 years-will be sold in the U.S. and Canada exclusively at Walmart, Walmart.com and Sam's Club retail locations beginning October 6. SONIC BOOM, produced by the band's Paul Stanley in Los Angeles, is the centerpiece of a three-disc set that also features a completely re-recorded greatest hits CD as well as a live DVD shot in Argentina during the band's recent, record-breaking KISS ALIVE 35 South American tour. The CD set will retail for $12, with pre-orders starting in September on Walmart.com.

KISS' Gene Simmons says, "SONIC BOOM may be the best new record we've done since Destroyer! It is Rock And Roll Over meets Love Gun. The world's biggest retailer had better get ready for the hottest band in the world and hire more cashiers before October 6th!"

Stanley continues, "Through all of the albums that are considered our classics, we tried to always find ways to give our fans extras that went beyond just the music. Besides our making the best KISS album in decades, Walmart has made it possible for us to include a bonus CD with 15 of our most famous songs and an additional live DVD, shot during our recent concert in Buenos Aires. So in every sense, SONIC BOOM is the ultimate return to classic KISS form. You wanted the best, you got the best!"

Walmart, one of America's largest music retailers, is finalizing its exciting plans now for its in-store and online destinations for KISS fans surrounding the launch of the new album and tour, and will host various KISS products in addition to their music in its stores this fall. More details on Walmart KISS activity, announcements regarding album pre-sales, sweepstakes and KISS appearances will be shared shortly.

TAYLOR SWIFT ES KEITH URBAN
KISSONLINE.com
KISS IS EVERYWHERE!!!

Taylor Swift and her band play a hilarious prank on Keith Urban during their concert last night at the Sprint Center on Saturday (August 8) in Kansas City, Missouri.

Hi Gene,

Saturday night on our last night opening for Keith Urban, we played a prank on him. During his hit song, "Kiss a Girl", Taylor (Ace), myself (Gene), Amos (Paul), and Grant (Peter) came out in full KISS regalia. Our backup singers Caitlin and Liz along with our FOH engineer Russell were dressed up as Hershey kisses and tossed them out into the crowd. It was a lot of fun and it was captured on this video from YouTube. Thought you might enjoy it.

P.S. Thanks again for the birthday call in May!

Sincerely,
Paul Sidoti
-guitarist for Taylor Swift

Hey Guys!

Just thought I would share this with you. I attended the Ohio State Fair on Saturday night in Columbus, OH and found this huge painting of Gene and Paul on the outside of the Funhouse! Very cool...it caught my eye from a distance and it was definitely attracting attention of many other people at the fair.

Can't wait for the new record and tour!
