Passing Kissmania over to next generation

Dear Paul, Gene, Tommy, Eric,
although the show in Verona earlier this week was my fourth Kiss show (Milan, Italy 1980; 1996; 1998; Verona 2008), the thrill was still there, moreso because this time around with me were my 15 years old daughter and 16 years old niece.
My daughter has been listening to Kiss ever since she was born - I used to whisper \"Hold Me, Touch Me\" as a lullaby when she was a baby and danced to \"Unholy\" at three.
My niece started listening to Kiss out of curiosity for makeup and costumes and ended up believing there\'s lot of skill and art in Kiss music.
Needless to say, the Verona show got them both electrified, to say the least - no DVD can give the same feelings a live show - any show - does, let alone a KISS show!
As far as I\'m concerned I was just happy the songs performed were mostly \"Alive!\" classics, I was wishing the show could go on forever.
Guys, thank you all (present and past band member alike) for providing the soundtrack of my life and for contributing in making the relationship with my girl even more special.
