Hello! I made sure to place many references to KISS in the new video from our band THE SUMMIT. Even the band name is an obscure reference! Credit where credit is due. You guys shaped my childhood, and are still with me. See you on KK4! http://youtu.be/8xjtG1pPoOQ Cheers! Bjorn "B" Hoglund

Summer Tour Song Request
Subject: Summer Tour Song Request
From: Jared Montgomery on 04/15/2014
Dear KISS, I am turning 15 years old on Thursday, April 17 and one of my presents is a ticket to The Heroes Tour with Def Leppard in Tampa on July 23, 2014 with my dad. I have been a KISS fan since 2006, which makes me a "newer" fan compared to my dad who's been a KISS fan for 36 years! He had introduced me to you guys when i was in 2nd grade! Monster was the first KISS album i bought and i REALLY LOVE "All For The Love of Rock N' Roll" by Eric Singer and i was wondering if you could possibly consider having Eric sing this on The Heroes Tour because you guys are an INSPIRATION to me and because of you i can compare myself to that song because you have given me THE LOVE FOR ROCK N' ROLL and could you maybe also consider Psycho Circus and Lick It Up because these are my FAVORITE KISS classics! I AM LOOKING FOWARD TO SEEING A AMAZING THEATRICAL CONCERT THAT ONLY YOU CAN BRING! Your Newest, Truest Fan, Jared Montgomery

Hey guys, I am a first year science teacher at North Pitt High School in North Carolina and recently visited Boston last week for the National Science Teacher Conference. This was my first time flying and visiting a big city. I felt home as soon as I got there when I noticed KISS John Varvatos advertisements all around the city. I saw ads on many taxi's and even this cool display at the John Varvatos store. I was happy to show off my fresh gene tattoo! Rock on!

On the day KISS went into the Rock N Roll Hall Of Fame, guitarist Menno Gootjes from the Dutch Progrock band Focus wore a KISS T-shirt while performing in Brazil. How cool is that?

I'm a proud papa. We were at my cousin's daughter's First Communion reception - Long Island, you know - and there was a face painter for the kids. Naturally my son and I, and the KISS-fan face painter, agreed that the Demon would be the best choice. Add in my son's natural flair for performance and he was a hit at the party.

"TEACHING ENGLISH WITH "
Subject: "TEACHING ENGLISH WITH KISS"
From: Anthony Magnotti on 04/12/2014
What can I say? Thank you, Paul for giving me an EXTRAORDINARY KISS WEEK. I attended all 3 of your book signing events...1 in NYC (See picture attached)...1 in Staten Island...and 1 in NJ, although all books were sold out by the time I arrived. You were FANTASTIC and so kind and accommodating to the KISS ARMY...Taking pictures with us was so amazing! Then, I attended the RRHOF induction ceremony at Barclays Center. I felt so proud to be there and to honor KISS for all of the years of happiness you have brought to my life. I have been on this site in the past...I am the "TEACHING ENGLISH WITH KISS" guy. My students were so excited for me. They knew I was running out of the door at dismissal, all 3 nights to meet you...I would return with your books and they would grab it...hold it....read it...and, most of all, rub your signature so they can feel the inspiration seeping into their souls...It was a very proud moment! I have included some pictures of my students posing with your books. These are students who are considered disadvantaged and disconnected. They lack role models and people to support and inspire them. This is how they end up at my school....for a second chance at life. Many have been teased and bullied, unmercifully. This is where KISS comes in. I share all of my KISS experiences with them...and you can hear a pin drop. I tell them how KISS is a way of life. . .and they love it. They know that KISS and the KISS ARMY do not drink...smoke....do drugs...and we conduct ourselves as proper human beings at ALL times. I inform them of all of the INSPIRATIONAL things you do for others...such as donating huge amounts of money to the Wounded Warriors Care Project and so many other organizations. They know the message of KISS is to follow your PASSION and to never stop until you reach the top....Then keep reaching to even greater heights! They long to be a person like Tommy Thayer...They know of Tommy's involvement in great causes, his educational background, and his passion for helping others. I told them of my experiences with Tommy through the years. At the NJ Kiss Convention, Tommy was such a gentleman...A truly genuine man who spent over 8 hours signing photos and taking photos with everyone. He did not leave until everyone was satisfied. I told him he was the nicest guy...but the "BADDEST" guitar player in the world. He is decent and honest, rare qualities in this world! He truly ROCKS! I told him about my students, and he made sure to write "Teaching English With KISS" on my photo. They know Eric Singer is the GREATEST drummer on the planet because of the stories I tell when I return from KISS concerts...They know Eric plays with such passion that you can feel it in your bones. Eric is ALIVE!!!! He is a true breath of fresh air...This is something my students try to emulate. He is a true professional, and we all love him! Eric has always treated fans well. It's like we have known him all of our lives. He always makes us feel comfortable. All other bands are jealous!!!! To them, I say..."TOO BAD! HE BELONGS TO THE KISS ARMY!" Gene Simmons, what is left to be said? A man who took a chance on a dream and created a legend.He is a tremendous inspiration in showing his devotion to his very first teacher in life, his mother. He teaches us all that whatever wasn't given in early life, is what you provide in your later life. Most importantly, KISS has been my teaching partner for years. My entire classroom is adorned with KISS pictures, dolls, calendars, posters, stuffed dolls, singing dolls, KISSMAS ornaments, KISS lights, magnets, and everything else you can think of...just check out the pics I attached. My students love it all! KISS is in all of my handouts and tests...The reason my students love learning now is largely due to KISS. They love it all and can't wait for the next day's class so they can share in the POSITIVITY. They never want to leave my room. I love giving them KISS CDs, posters, dolls, t-shirts, tickets...and so much more. They tell me they will cherish it forever and I know they will. These are students who were never given anything. These students now have BIG DREAMS of success...just like KISS. They have learned so much...and they have adopted the KISS way of life. It is amazing to see students who were so "hard" when they arrived become so emotional about the change they have made...They tell me, quite often, "I want to be like KISS"..."I will make you proud, Mr. Magnotti"...It really hits us all deep down...and it's all because of KISS and the powerful message you send of positivity in everything you do. You are HELPING me make a REAL difference in their lives...That is what it's all about! A new and continued generation of KISS fans will live forever. I want to thank you for making my life so full. I have attended nearly 200 KISS shows since my first on July 25, 1979 at Madison Square Garden...First song???? King Of The Night Time World." I already have tickets for 6 of your shows this summer and I have plans for at least 6 more. Some of my students will be going as well because I have been known to give KISS tickets to the ones who score the highest. I just felt the need to let you know what's going on here in Brooklyn, NY...and to let you know how MEMORABLE this past week was. Thank you Eric, Tommy, Gene, and Paul. You will never know the true impact you have made on all of us. We will see you on the road! A devoted KISS ARMY member, Anthony Magnotti

I was there......... It was so cool to see you guys up on stage together even though it may be the last. It may not have been perfect but I believe you made your fans proud and I for one shared in the in that enjoyment. That being said I can't wait for the tour this summer and once again (120 so times) you will rock and we will pay homage. Congrats 40 years is amazing and I and many other have been right there with you. Sounds goofy but I was really proud to a KISS fan last night. My mom told me a long time ago that "O John Mark you will grow out of this" I know she's looking done saying I was wrong and smiling. Thanks for a lifetime of memories.
