Soboba concert in San Jacinto, California.
crown on 07/31/2007
Dear Paul: I am a 32-year fan. My daughter and I travelled from New York to see Friday night\'s show. Wow -- I must say it was quite a shocker that you were unable to perform Friday night but perfectly understandable. Your health comes first, Paul. We heard you singing and playing during soundcheck -- very cool -- so we took it for granted everything was fine. When Doc and Gene told us you had taken ill we were very sad and concerned; I had tears in my eyes. I have seen you guys roughly fifteen times in concert since 1979 and met you in person several times. You are a very important part of my life and you are like family to me. I just want to let you know, Paul, that I am even more proud to be a Kiss fan now. You clearly showed beyond a shadow of a doubt how much you care for the fans when you told Gene not to let the fans down; I was very touched by this sentiment. Gene said many VERY nice things about you, Paul, which truly touched my heart and made me so proud to be a Kiss fan. You guys are AMAZING. Gene, Tommy, and Eric did a very nice job performing in your absence but there was a huge void without you. Paul, my daughter and I were the first in line to see you at The Wentworth Gallery in New Jersey - if you can remember. You are my daughter\'s favorite. She has been quiet about not seeing you in California but I know she is saddened and concerned. My thoughts and prayers are with you. You were sorely missed but you did what you had to do. I am so glad to hear that you are perfectly fine. What a relief to have read that! I truly look forward to seeing you and Kiss many more times in the future. God Bless you always, Paul. I consider you a dear friend -- a wonderful human being -- and a family member. We love you. Please take care of yourself and we certainly will be seeing you and Kiss again.
A Huge Kiss Fan for Life,
Jim from New Jersey
