Congratulations on 35 years of KISS, that\'s an amazing achievement. I have been a fan since I first saw you back in 1983 and the Lick it up tour. I didn\'t know anything about you guys, a mate from work needed someone to go with him as his mate had broke his leg, so I said I would go. On the way to London he filled me in on what to expect from a KISS show, the make-up,costumes e.t.c.,e.t.c. It was going to be my first concert I had been to and I was looking forward to seeing you guys. When you came out on stage to my horror, I saw four guys that just looked like, well us the audience. There was no make-up,costumes,to say I was gutted was an understatement.
It didn\'t take long before I was rocking along with the rest of the KISS army. The show was great, the music I fell in love with instantly, and what other group has two lead singers! It was an amazing night in London, and from then on I have been part of the KISS army. Since that night, I have watched you three more times, The Crazy Nights Tour, The Reunion Tour and The Psycho Circus tour, all at Wembley Arena. I have collected all your cds (including solos), dvds and spent around two thousand pounds on merchandise, including gold plated record plaques, lunch boxes,Kisstory 1 and 2,figures, Kiss tiles,30 year old Kiss bubblegum,die cast models, flasks, the list goes on. I don\'t have a favourite album or song, it depends on the mood I am in at the time. When life is getting me down a little I put on certain songs to pick me up, Shout it out loud, Rock and roll all nite, Deuce, Strutter. If I have had a hard day at work and need to relax with some soothing music, then I play songs like, I still Love you, Dreamin\' and Shandi. Whatever the mood I am in, I have KISS for the occasion. I want to thank you guys for giving me 25 years of pleasure, through your music, the merchandise I love to collect and for being The Hottest Band in the World! I once said you could not get a better front man than the late,great Freddie Mercury of Queen, I was wrong to say that. Paul, 35 years you have been the front man of Kiss, your energy, what you say on stage and getting us fans to participate in a carnival atmosphere and of course your amazing vocals. There is not a better front man anywhere in the world than you. Thirty five years on and you and Gene are still kicking ass, along with two other members who have joined the Kiss family, Eric and Tommy. Good luck with the tour, I know you are coming to the U.K for the 3 day festival, I was wondering any chance of you guys coming to the U.K and doing a couple of arena shows on your own. You are doing a World tour, please don\'t leave out the U.K. We might look like a small island to you guys, but there are a lot of Kiss army that are here dying to see you. It\'s been nearly 10 years since you last played here, please, come on over, I cant promise you brilliant weather, but I can promise the Kiss army will come out in full force to see you guys.
You guys take care,the U.K is waiting for you!
p.s 25 years I have been in the Kiss army, it\'s my anniversary, you gotta come!
