Thanks Again Gene
Paul Chambers on 05/21/2007
Just saw the \"Uncle Gene Wants You\" episode of Family Jewels, and Ive got to tell you man, it was moving to see such a Rock God Icon being moved by people like myself. I just found out that I\'m headed back over to the Iraq soon and I\'ll be taking KISS with me to get me through that place. Hell, I enjoyed freaking some of the locals out the first time there by playing the tunes loud!! In the episode, you called one of the vets a hero - we\'re just doing a job that no one else wants to do, we\'re doing want the tax payers of this Country pay us to do, so that they can enjoy their way of life without inconvenience, but, you - KISS - and other entertainers help us through the rough times while doing our jobs.
The song \"A World Without Heros\" from the Elder album has always had a special place in my heart, and I\'ve got to tell you, that should anything happen to me while over there, that song will be played at my funeral. Of course, I\'d like to be buried in one of your coffins, but, I just don\'t have that kind of money to bury.....
But, again, Gene - Thanks for all you have done to show the Military your thanks.It means alot to this old Soldier and KISS fan.
I\'ve had the opportunity to meet Paul (in Charlotte, NC at the Wentworth Gallery) recently, and if I could get the rest of you guys, I\'d die a happy ol\' soul.
