Paul, Here is wishing you to live up to your self-proclaimed moniker of \"Mr. Speed\" and show the world that an \"All-American Man\" can make a speedy recovery! I know all KISS fans will \"Shout It Out Loud\" once we hear the news that Paul will once again give us more \"Crazy, Crazy Nights!\" Sincerely, Kevin Scott
get well soon, Paul

Heard about your heart trouble, take care of yourself, you only have one! Hope you\'re back on the road soon, I have never seen you in concert, I was a single mom and concerts were not in the budget. I have an empty nest now, so I can finally see you (hopefully) one day. God bless all of you, Robin

That girl Rocks!!!! From concept to completion, Nina Greville of Tickled Pink Face Painting in Orange County, CA had all details relayed to each of us in a timely and professional manner. This was no small job or just a typical company event. There were about 24 face painters she had to prepare for this event at the private KISS concert. Sadly, I did not get to get photos of all the faces I did, but I figure a few is better than none at all.

A Night To Remember FOREVER

To Paul Sorry to hear about your illness. When Gene came on stage and told us what had happen, It shock everybody. To have your heart beating at 190 to 200 beats a minute is crazy. I read that you\'re doing better and that your at home now, That\'s good news for your family, friends and fan\'s. For you to tell Gene the show must go on, The fans are coming along ways to see you guys, Just shows us fans what kinda person you are.We thank you for that. You were missed on Friday night ,KISS is not the same without you up on the stage. Take care of yourself, Hope to see you soon. As for Gene,Tommy,Eric what can I say but outstanding job Friday night. I\'m sure it wasn\'t easy going on stage with Paul in route to the hospital and for as hot as it was inside SOBOBA arena. To watch you Gene on stage control your emotion and stand up there and talk to the crowd, When you called Paul your brother, I\'m surprise the roof didn\'t fall down. You two have been playing together for so many years most of people I saw there weren\'t even born yet.I\'ve been lucky to have seen you play way back in the early 70\'s, I don\'t have enough fingers and toes to tell how many times I\'ve seen your shows. This show meant a lot to us fans. You didn\'t have go on, you could have cancelled and rescheduled and a true KISS fans whould have understood. Friday happen to be my Birthday and for the first time I was able to have my three sons with me. They have been to many shows to, They were still shock after the show of the news of Paul and the one thing one of my sons said was we just witness one of the greatest rock bands and shows on the face of this earth play as trio. Your never going to see that ever again. As Gene said Friday night, We just became part of KISSORY. So I\'ll say again THANK YOU KISS, Gene,Tommy,Eric and you Paul for all the years you were on stage given everything you had. Get better KISS ROCKS THE NATION VON From Santa Clarita

Wow, what an experience... And how much more respect I have gained for the band and it\'s crew... I traveled to San Jacinto last week, all the way from Holland, to see the last of the 3 hit\'n\'run Kiss shows. As you can imagine I had been looking forward to that for months. And what a special night it was, a show without front man Paul Stanley. Unbelievable... All in the crowd were shocked when Doc McGee stepped on stage and told us what had happened to Paul. Gene came on and showed us what a show man he is. Of course we wanted them to play! Gene was really doing his best in trying to make it a great evening for all. Very special to see him be the spokesperson for one time. He lost his voice a bit, but kept on going. And what a band... Eric and Tommy rocked! Ever since Tommy replaced Ace I (as a huge Ace fan) had 2nd thoughts about Tommy. But he impressed big time at this show. He covered for 90% of all the guitar parts and made the sound full and pretty complete. And of course Eric, well, who\'s a better drummer on that seat than him... Gene tried to make it a special show. For Christine Sixteen he invited 10 people on stage to sing along. Of course I jumped over the fence immediately, and was on stage within seconds. Only to find out that they were letting people on stage only from the other side... But security was not that tight, so they let me stand on the side of the stage when Gene and Tommy were instructing the people what to sing. Amazing to be on that stage, I hope there is video of that somewhere. At one moment a security officer came running at me and pushed me to the ground. I found out 5 seconds later he saved me from severe ear damage as I had been standing way to close to the pyro, which went of almost immediately after. Thank you sir... During the drum solo Tommy left the stage and started shaking hands with some people on the front row. I was back in my seat at that point and he was kind enough to pose for a picture (see below). Now who\'s the real Ace on the Rocks? ;-) (I perform in a Dutch Tribute band called Kiss on the Rocks: www.kissontherocks.com). They performed all Gene songs and included some things they hardly ever did / did on previous tours only: Goin\' Blind, Parasite, Christine Sixteen, She. Eric Singer sang Black Diamond including the intro. I was amazed how the band put up without Paul. Real pro\'s, that\'s all I can say. Of course I would have loved to see them with Paul, and I hope all is well with Paul now, but it was an experience. A Kiss show with only 3 of the guys, wow... Another funny thing happened before the show. Nick Simmons was being spotted hanging out at the entrance of the gig, obviously waiting for someone. The Family Jewels film crew was there with him. After 15 minutes we found out he was waiting for a crew member who brought Skippy along, Gene\'s dog. A security officer refused to let the dog in, and the crew member started an argument with the officer which got pretty nasty. In that conversation the dog suddenly got loose and ran into the arena. A scene from a Marx Brother\'s movie was the result: Skippy being chased by Nick and the crew, who were chased by security people, who were chased by fans. Not sure if this was staged or not (why would the dog not be delivered to the backstage area?), but it was funny. Before the start of the show I saw Shannon walking the dog behind the stage. Anyhow, a fantastic evening with mixed emotions. I hope to see the band with Paul sometime soon. Get well Paul! Rutger a.k.a. Ace on the Rocks

Hi Gene, I would like to say, I truly enjoy watchimg your shows of your family jewels. My husband Rob is a huge fan of you & you\'re rock group. Last year for his 40th birthday I had a cake made for him with you\'re picture on it along with his face in the middle. It was awesome. I would really love to surprize him someday to have him meet you & the group. I know that is a little too far fetch, but maybe someday. I wasn\'t much of a Kiss Fan until the day I married Rob. He is the love of my life. He knows all your songs, he could probably name all of them. Thanks for being you. Theresa Baker Kewanna Indiana

Dear KISS, You guys are the best band in the world. It is hard to put into words how phenomenal the Soboba performance was. To stick it out without the Starchild and play as a trio took balls, and you delivered without fail. My respect for Gene has definitely risen. He proved to be not only an amazing frontman but a genuine person who cares about Paul and the fans. I almost died when he spewed blood and played God of Thunder. Eric Singer, also, surprised me. That drum solo kicked a**. Tommy kept the Ace legacy going with the exact guitar solos from Alive!, and I don\'t think a KISS fan would want it any other way. I almost cried when we all learned about Paul\'s heart problems--the fact that he was thinking solely about the audience when his heart was close to stopping is unbelievable. You guys ROCKED. I am 15 years old and thought I would never be able to see my favorite band live. Thanks so much Love, Emily
God Bless you Paul!

Paul, you were truely missed, the other evening. We still had a wonderful time. Gene, and the guys did an incredible job entertaining and holding it all together during a time I am sure they were conflicted with feelings themselves. I had never been to a Kiss concert before even though you are my favorite group. It never worked out for me. I do hope to see all of you together one day. Your health is more important, so please do as the doctors say take care of yourself and to be there for your family. God Bless you all.

I must say to star off this was my 79th KISS show and as most would say most interesting. When I got the the news about what was going on I was in shock and the main concern to me was The Starchild\'s health. I heard threw the grapevine that Paul had left but the show was going to go on. So as a diehard Paul fan I was very curious to was was going to transpire next. Doc came out to make his announcement then Gene followed... When they started playing Duece I was like what the hell is going on??? KISS as a trio this is so weired but the energy from that stage was unbelievable!!! No words can say what all of the guys were thinking especially Gene! The first thing I was thinking who is gonna talk to the crowd??? I figured it would be Gene but didn\'t think it would be as personal as he made it! People bash Gene and KISS for this and that and whatever at least they are honest about what they do and stand for! The amount of respect I gained for all of the boys that night was unreal especially Gene because He had to sing most of the show which in his whole lifetime of KISS has never had to do and he couldn\'t have done it better!! Way to go Gene and the boys I\'m sure The Starchild is proud!!!
