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.

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

Subject: New KISS Album
From: 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

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.

Kiss Kissonline My brother & I have been Kiss Fan\'s since 1974 (Hotter Than Hell) was the Album that we first discovered in a Drug Store (Value Plus Pharmacy) Album display that my father was a Pharmacist at! He & I have been partnered in the Kiss Craze ever since; Barry (my brother), Jeff (our brother in spirit) & I (Jay) caught one of the Kiss Expo’s. We had a blast, we were there for two days (an awesome gift from my wife) of course we purchased merchandise and it was cool seeing both old and new items. However our favorite experience of that weekend was meeting Bruce, Eric, & John! They were all gracious with their time friendly & fun to talk with; they autographed many thing for us & our children, it was great and a wonderful experience for the 3 of us. We catch every tour together, take our wives/girl friend & our children who all are fans, my two youngest have yet to see KISS live.

Meeting Ace and my new tattoo.

From: Mike Sanchez on 06/22/2007
First I just want to send a HUGE THANK YOU to Gene, Paul, Brian, Deb and the crew at the KISS CoffeeHouse and of course the Spaceman himself, Mr Ace Frehley, for a \"Once in a lifetime expriance\" (for me anyway!) making the 1st anniversary a day to remember. Got in line somewhere around 10am with my wife, Barb, and 2 sons, Joey (10) and JR (4). You couldn\'t ask for better weather to spend a day standing in line to meet someone who to me was \"Larger than Life\" growing up. Standing in line all day, with people from all over the country and world was great. Talked to alot of different people, but we all were there in Myrtle Beach on this day, for the same reason, our LOVE of KISS and Ace. Waiting my turn to get my 78 solo album signed, I had the same feeling inside of the day I met Gene. I paused and in a matter of seconds, all the concerts, favorite KISS songs, and memoribilla flashed through my mind. I stepped up and all I could say to my HERO, was \"Thank you\", and that was BEFORE he signed my album. Being that you could only get 1 item signed, I just wanted to show Ace something that I got done to show my appreciation of him and the \"Hottest Band in the World\", my 2nd of 4 KISS tattoos. So I hopped up on the counter and showed him my Ace tattoo. He looked at it and said \"Wow, that\'s great.\" grabbed his silver Sharpie, and signed my leg above him! I was in outter space! (Pun intented) Thanks again to everyone at the KISS Coffehouse for a great day! Mike Sanchez

Hi! I just wanted to say Thank You to Ace for coming to the KISS Coffeehouse in Myrtle Beach, SC. Ace was very friendly and he can still rock! The staff at KISS Coffeehouse were very nice and it was a all around great night. If you havent seen the band Mr. Speed, be sure to check them out. They did a great job on stage and they took a lot of time with the fans to pose for pictures (even though they were being told they were running late). This weekend in my 27th birthday and getting to meet Ace was one of the best presents that I have ever gotten! Everyone is getting tired of hearing me sing, \"Shock Me\"! Thanks Ace!!!

When I was six years old, or so, my cousin brought his \'Rock And Roll Over\' album to my parents\' house while visiting us over Christmas. We sat in my parents\' bedroom floor, in front of my mom\'s record player, for almost the entire 3 or 4 days he was there. Wow, did my life change that first day!!! And you guys have been a part of it ever since. I\'m 37 now, and KISS is still my favorite band. Always has been. I had a chance to go to my first concert (the LOVE GUN tour) when I was about 8, but my parents decided I was too young for that experience. Finally, years later, it happened: I saw the CRAZY NIGHTS tour in Tusla, OK. Not only did I manage to get pretty close to front/center of the stage, but during Eric Carr\'s drum solo (amazing!), I had one of the most memorable moments of my entire life. Dripping with sweat, short of breath, exhausted, I went to the side walkway to catch my breath for a minute. This older guy next to me taps me on the shoulder (he looked like my uncle) points, and says, \"Hey, isn\'t that Paul Stanley over there?\" He\'s pointing to the right side of the stage, behind a small barrier, about 20 or 30 feet away. Sure enough, Paul is standing there, drinking a cup of water or something. I take off at a dead run, stick my hand forward, and run smack into this HUGE security-guy\'s tree-trunk of an arm. I\'m 5 feet from Paul Stanley - almost close enough to shake hands with him (my life-long dream), and instead, I\'m going to die! I don\'t even look at the security guy, I just stare at Paul. He looks back, right in my eyes, then yells at the MAMMOTH beside me, \"Hey, it\'s all right!\" I must have looked like the biggest grease-ball you\'ve ever seen; covered in sweat, long blonde hair stuck to my pimply face and my neck, and Paul just steps closer, smiles, and reaches out to shake my hand! OHMYGOD!!!!!!!!! So I yell, \"Thanks Paul!\", shake his hand, and grin stupidly for the next several months or so! But, you know what? That\'s exactly the kind of thing that makes KISS so special to me. And to the rest of the KISS ARMY. Little moments like that one show alot about a person, or a band. Just like that moment, throughout my entire life, KISS has never let me down. Through deaths, divorces, and anything else life throws at us, we all know: we always have KISS. I just wanted to take this chance to say to you, Paul, THANK YOU. That stupid little moment, when I was 17 or 18, made my life! Just to know that you were willing to take the time - to do that little extra for a fan - meant so much to me. And it told me that the man I\'ve idolized for so many years, was worth every second I spent, wishing I could be more like him. Years later, I\'m happy to say, I got to see KISS twice on the FAREWELL TOUR (Memphis/Chicago), with the four original members. Needless to say, the best shows I\'ve ever seen, or ever will see. Plus, now I can forgive my parents for \'77! LOL I wish you guys all the best, in anything you choose to do. That\'s the least you deserve, for everything you\'ve given to all of us over the past 30-some years. Yours truly, David T., Missouri. P.S. Love the \'LIVE TO WIN\' album! Please don\'t let it be the last!
