From: outtahanddan on 06/30/2007
Ive recently moved to Myrtle Beach after the end of a hard year in 06. Im a rock singer, and grew up with Kiss. Aside from being astounded with the Kiss Cafe, I stood in line five hours to have Ace sign my Kiss Alive LP. It really helped me in this hard time, the bodyguards even talked to me cool. Gene, ur the best businessman of all time..Paul, Im sure ur still the lover, Peter, you\'ll always be cat 3, and Ace, what can I say man...you brought the KISS back out in me.

Hi, I\'m 15 years old and KISS has been my favorite band since before I can remember. I first saw KISS live in 1996 with the original lineup and it was AMAZING. It has to be my most vivid memory I have :] Just over a year ago, I started my own band (The Fine Print), in Sherman Oaks , California and I must say that KISS has helped us our Big Time. Every show we play, we ALWAYS play a KISS song. My dream would be to one day have one of my heroes in KISS show up to one of our shows. We\'re playing at the Roxy on Sunset Blvd. July 11th @ 8:00, and we\'re expecting even bigger gigs from there. Here\'s a picture of me with just some of my KISS merchandise. Thank you for all your music. You guys are my heroes.

Coffeehouse 1st Anniversary
Subject: Kiss Coffeehouse 1st Anniversary
From: Rob Andrews on 06/29/2007
My family and I traveled from Lafayette, Indiana, to join our fellow KISS fans at the 1st anniversary of the KISS Coffeehouse! We were more than excited, to say the least, when we got a message in mid-April from our good friends, KISS tribute band Mr. Speed, that ACE FREHLEY, one of my childhood heroes, was going to be there to meet fans, and that Mr. Speed was invited to put on a concert for the Coffeehouse\'s festivities! We bought VIP passes - no way could I pass up this opportunity to meet him! The day finally came, and as we made our way up towards the front of the line, I see ACE - in person and in the flesh! My turn came, and I had two missions to accomplish. One was to get a poster signed for my friend, Joe Hess, (\"Ace\" in Mr. Speed), and two, to show ACE something I had done in his honor as a true fan ... a tattoo of him covering my entire back! He looked at for quite some time, and was kind enough to autograph it. Mr. Speed put on an unbelieveable 2 hour concert, which was topped off by ACE himself coming on stage to play \"Shock Me\" with our friends, using Joe\'s guitar! Nothing can erase the memories we have, and the feeling of pride and happiness we felt, to see Rich, Joe, Criss, and Rob up on stage with him. My dream finally came true to have a couple minutes with ACE, and I cannot express enough my deepest thanks to KISS, Brian, Skip, and everyone involved in putting together such an awesome and memorable evening for me and my family. We spoke with Brian and Skip (and some Coffeehouse staff), who were so kind and took time to talk to us, and we really felt welcomed. Thank you, everyone! KISS ROCKS!

From: Shelby, A great hard rocker on 06/28/2007
Well you know Gene, I was wondering if you got my letter and spamed it. Cause it\'s not there and other ones have been checked. I just hope you read it. Well, can I copy the song Heaven\'s On Fire cause I blasted it in my basement, and now I can\'t stop singing it. So that\'s ok if it is one of my songs cause I actually remember it. I said I would pay you the money and yeah. I will even pay you extra for even just allowing me to copy the song. I\'ll pay you, Gene, $150 just because I am a great big fan. Gene I love your show! Nick is Really funny! May I adopt Nick and Nick can come live with me and my family? He said so on the show! Snowflake is my ferret and when I play your song, Heaven\'s on Fire, Snowflake bobs his head to the tune! It\'s really funny! Your soon to be friend, Shelby, The Biggest Fan Ever PS If you wanna let me know if I can copy the song, you guys can talk and let me know. E-mail me at fruitbat97@hotmail.com Thanks!

I got to play with Bruce Kulick!!!!!
Subject: I got to play with Bruce Kulick!!!!!
From: Joe on 06/28/2007
I have heard people say, it\'s ok to have hero\'s but it\'s best not to meet them. Well, this weekend I got to hang out and play with one of my hero\'s, Bruce Kulick. It was one of the best experiences of my life.He was not only friendly but very down to earth. Sitting and talking with him was unbelievable. He talks to you like he\'s known you his whole life. Every conversation was perfect from beginning to end. He talked about every aspect of his musical career,from KISS to R&R Fantasy Camp.By the way I have not done that but I have a 1st hand testimonial to how great it is. The guitar clinic he put on was awesome.Wall to wall Bruce. He played amazing. Telling stories about the tracks he played over. Every one interesting.Then he did a Q&A. That\'s where we found out if he were stranded on an island and could only have 1 CD it would probably be a Beatles record. He played bass with Steve Vai and thinks he is from another planet he\'s so good. After a good 30 min. of questions he invited my Friends Doug and Leigh on stage and of course me to play Rock and Roll All Night with him.That was crazy.When Doug started that classic drum beat I new right then that I was doing something that only a hand full of stars, and even fewer fans would ever get to do Play onstage with a member of KISS.We pulled it off pretty well I must say. Bruce even said he was surprised @ how well we did with no rehearsals. After that he sat for a good hour and signed everything we threw at him.He took a ton of pictures and talked to everyone that wanted to talk. All in all it was a great day.If you ever get the chance to meet Bruce quit your job if you have to it will be totally worth it.

But we got are old records and went down to his plot with cds and sat thier for hours leting him hear his spit blood. This is to let you know you will never be forgotton by a little boy 2 an1/2 yaers old in heavn. It was hard to belive but we have not touched that record in a long time just keep it for him and on our old player it played like new, just for him and you. it was like he was right their dancing and singing right along with you. So I THANK YOU. your fan forever Patty I am sendding you a picture of his dad, mom, brother, and my mom

Waited long Enough
Subject: Waited long Enough
From: shannon66 on 06/27/2007
Yes, long enough. Finally joined the KISS army after the first time I seen my first Concert in 77 when I sneaked out with older Cousin. It was in Huntsville Al. I was about 10 or 11, future shows included the Dynasty tour twice in 79. First in Birmingham Al. in August & December in Huntsville Al. My parents were not to excited about my choice in bands (to me a religion) although my mother enjoyed Dr. Love. My next opportunity was in I believe in 03 when you toured with aerosmith in Jacksonville Fl. You guys were great. I left the coliseum before aerosmith took stage. The last opportunity I had with the band was seeing Ace at Myrtle Bch. at Broadway on the beach in S.C. My lifestyle has changed some sinced I moved aboard a sailboat & enjoyed the salt life but my life style & religion is still KISS not Marguritaville Another dedicated fan SHANNON66

From: D@planetzoya.net on 06/25/2007
Dear Gene Paul Tommy & Eric! How is the best band in the world doing. When are we getting a new KISS studio CD? We need one with great art like Destroyer or LOVE GUN. I have been with KISS since 1976 bought all your albums in Record & 8 track then rebought them in cassette & then finally I own every CD you have put out! This is by far the best line up to KISS ever! Tommy is a GREAT lead guitarist & I have loved Eric since the 90's It would be a dream come true if you guys would release a new Album with 12 new songs with a painted cover & go back to Destroyer or Love Gun costumes! I bow to you the Gods of Thunder & await a new offering! D of ZOYA

I took my children to the St. Louis KISS Expo today. Man it was Heaven. Even Tommy Thayer called on the phone. Great KISS memorabilia to buy or just enjoy looking at, even Chuck Berry\'s son & grandson were there, and of course the ever wonderful Bruce Kulick. Got some great photo\'s this time around. Next month is The Nashville Expo, if you\'re in the area stop in , Eric Singer is scheduled and it will be worth it. Hope to see another St. Louis Expo.
