KISS, Cobo Hall, 1976
Shawn Boyd on 10/28/2006
Wow! I never thought time travel was possible until last night. KISS, Cobo Hall, 1976... I was 9 years old when it happened -- I\'m 39 now and I felt like a kid all over again. I\'ve attended a dozen or so KISS shows, with and without makeup, and seeing them on the big screen here in Sacramento was only a blood drop away from the real thing. Dinner at Hooters with my friend Fletch before the show near the theater -- KISS shirts everywhere. Inside the doors more shirts and shouts. In the theater, KISS fans and their mates. Then that infamous foreplay -- \"YOU WANTED THE BEST YOU GOT THE BEST...\" the next 90-minutes transported us to a time and place we only heard in legend. The energy, the electricity, the myth ... it was REAL! We witnessed it with our own wide eyes! Left speechless, we filed out of the theater talking about Peter\'s drum attacks, Ace\'s
out-of-this-world guitar shredding, Gene\'s mezmerizingly demonic stage presense, and Paul\'s command of what it means to be a star frontman! -- I even overheard a guy tell his girlfriend \"now I know why KISS is your favorite band!\"
THANK YOU! Shawn Boyd, loyal KISS ARMY Soldier since 1977.
