Dear Gene, 8-11-08 Where do I begin? I drove to New York City to meet you at a book signing in 2000 (which was the happiest day of my life! My dream come true!), I managed to tell you that you have been the inspiration in my life, you looked at my niece standing next to me, said “is she serious?’”, signed my ‘boob’ and I went on my way. (Considering that I’m 40 years old now, and I have looked up to you since I’ve been about 6 or 7 years old, I’d like you to hear my ‘story’.) I’ve been sending you letters/pictures since I’ve been about 16 years old, in hopes that you would meet me; OK, make it into your ‘book’…I was HOT!. As I mentioned above, when I met you at the Virgin Megastore, It was the happiest day of my life, meeting my idol. I was the Homecoming Queen who got pregnant, had my daughter on graduation day & never made it to school in New York on my scholarship; I raised my daughter, with the help of my parents. My parents…have been together since 1956, had my oldest sister (Brenda) at the ages of 14 & 17..had a son who died as a baby (Terry), had my sister (Cathy),myself (Carol) and a 5th child, a son;Randy, who also died as a baby. Before I loose your attention, and you wonder where I am going with ‘all this’; let me get to my point. My Mother has Lymphoma/Leukemia; she was diagnosed in March of this year. We swiftly did everything doctors instructed us to do; from chemo, to surgeries, etc. After hearing {from the ‘local’oncologist} that there’s nothing else they could do for my Mother, that she has 6 months to live…my sisters & I started making calls, my mother was seen by a staff of oncologists in Philadelphia, Pa, after a lot more tests, more chemo, etc., the oncologists advised my family that my Mothers only chance (of living) is to have a bone marrow transplant. I can go on & on about everything my family has been through, but I think you get the point. My Mother’s transplant journey is scheduled to start 8-18-08. My whole life, I have been dreaming about YOU…literally…at least once a week…oh sometimes the rest of the band is in there, most likely Paul…but ALWAYS YOU! I have a KISS room in my house, my (real) license plate on my car ‘says’ I LOVE KIS (the first plate I had said KISS-1, someone stole it, so I had to report it to the DMV! I Dress like {Gene Simmons} twice a year….every year, my back is COVERED with KISS tattoos, everyone gets KISS merchandise for every and any occasion [for me], I’ve seen KISS concerts at least 12 times, gone to conventions (you get the point?)…I am wondering WHY I do not earn KISS points every time I use my KISS visa card, though…that SUCKS! Did I mention a KISS tribute band/concert was my wedding reception? Regardless of what EVERYONE ELSE says or thinks…. I AM YOUR BIGGEST FAN! I need you help, Gene. I am hoping that after all the years of dedication & admiration for you & KISS, this letter gets in YOUR hands. I am asking local businesses for donations, as well as asking you & KISS. I am planning several fund raisers; with the help of friends, family and the community, I am hoping to raise enough money to just rent an apartment for me, my Father & my sisters during the 6 weeks that my Mother must stay in the bone marrow transplant unit. We will take turns driving back & forth to Philly, but need a place to shower, sleep, etc. An apartment in Philly (Pa) costs anywhere from $2500 to $50,000. My family has struggled to get by our whole lives…I gave you the scenario of how my parents got started…we just want to ‘get by’, support my Mother and hope her life is spared! Medical expenses are piling up and will be astronomical in the end. If I do not get a response from this, I will be truly shocked; knowing the compassionate man that you are…I will assume that once again my letter did not reach you. I am counting on you, Gene…to help my family. We are not privileged like your family. If you were to become ill (God! Forbid!), your family would not wonder how they were going to be able to afford to save your life. Please help my family! All donations can be made payable to my Mother, Sandra Brown. She is 65 years old, lives at 113 Kalbach Rd. Newmanstown, Pa 17073. (If you need proof of anything I am saying in this letter; documentation/more info…I’ll GLADLY provide it!) If you are not comfortable with ‘giving’ a donation, you could come look at my KISS collection…maybe I have something you’d like to purchase…something you don’t have…I’ve been collecting since I’ve been 6 years old. Sincerely & respectfully, With much love & admiration, Your biggest, best fan in the whole world! Carol Brown-Gockley (yes, I went & got married!) 830 S. Railroad St. Myerstown, Pa 17067

Dear Gene,Paul,Eric,and Tommy.... I can\'t say thank you enough for the wonderful concert at Sturgis! I had the time of my life, was in the front row right in front of Gene, I could feel the heat from the pyro! Also guys, thank you so much for your support of our troops! It really means a lot to me as I come from a long line of men who served in the US Army and my mother came here from Scotland. You are so much more than just a rock band....I have been a fan for years and will be forever! Long live rock & long live KISS Thank you! Rob Hodge Colorado Springs,Colorado Also my deepest thanks to Gene, for making me feel like his most important fan when I met him! Your awesome Gene!

Dear Kiss, The first time my gfather took me to a kiss show I was just 6 years old. I was blown away and my father bought me my first guitar 3 days later and ive been hooked on playing kiss tunes ever since. I had seen you guys 7 times before Sturgis but this time my father and I sprung for the VIP package. This show could not have come at a better time,I leave to defend our country in The United States Air Force on August 12th and you guys gave me the opportunity to rock and roll all nite and party one last time. Not only have you been the most influential rock act in my life but your lyrics and attitudes have taught me to never listen to the rules in society and to pursue what I want out of life. Thanks for the inspiration and the soundtrack to my life. I followed this performance by heading to the tattoo shop and getting the rose of my ultimate hero, although you are all incredible, Paul Stanley. This was just my way of displaying the permanent impact that you have had on my life and the attitude that yohave taught me, \"you can come with me, or you can stay behind, but if you stand in front you\'re going to pretty sore.\" Your Lifelong Fan, David Gier

Kiss will never die. I have seen you guys perform 4 times and you havent missed a beat. I seen you in Denver 2 Times then I seen You at Dodger Stadium on Haloween night In 98 That concert was HUGE. I was sort of worried about the Sturgis concert because Ace & Peter werent with you but I was impressed by the skill that Eric Singer & Tommy Thayer brought to the table. This is the first concert for my wife & the first time I have ever been front row and I have seen many venues. We were on genes side of the stage & it was incrediable that you guys are so in tune & on time with every beat hats off to you. I live here in Rapid City & I am keeping my fingers crossed that We will see you again for my fifth time at next years Rally. You guys made august 4 A day to remember for us and everyone else in South Dakota & that day will always be KISS day in South Dakota. You will always be the greatest band ever.

Dear KISS, 2nd attempt at sending this letter with the photo! 4 hours ago I arrived home after spending the past month in Kenya doing community work and climbing Mt. Kenya with a team from my school. It was an incredible experience, and what was even more amazing was the feeling I got when I made it to the summit of Mt. Kenya, which I never expected to reach. It took 3 days to get up there, but when we did I made sure my KISS flag was up there with me, helping to spread the KISS Army to as many corners of the globe as possible. On the left is me at Old Moses camp, 3300 metres above sea level, and on the right is me at the summit, 4985 metres above sea level (you can see how my face swelled up due to the altitude haha). Not so long before I went to Kenya I was front row for the most awesome KISS show ever at Download festival. Its been a really exciting past couple of months for me and KISS has been a huge part of it. Thanks guys, can\'t wait to see you in the UK again soon. - Jennifer :)

I have been divorced 21 years and I have a 21 year old son with Autism. I began dating a gentleman last year. Donnie has not only been a gentleman in every sense of the word, but has taken on the task of being a step-father to a child that has Autism. On July 26, 2008 we took a family trip to the KISS Coffeehouse in Myrtle Beach, SC and while in the Coffeehouse (in front of the KISS Costumes there), he proposed to me. I gladly accepted. Donnie knows that I am a huge KISS fan and that would make a fan\'s dream come true. The staff at the coffee house was so great. A girl could not ask for more. I also want to thank the members of KISS for their support of finding a cure for Autism. I worked for many years(and with the help of psychologist) to get my son to where he is today. By the way, KISS is one of his favorite bands.
