KISS is my first memory

Dear KISS, Dear GODS OF THUNDER,
I first heard your\'e music when i was old enough to walk...you all wer emy first musical memory and I tried to write letters to join the KISS ARMY when i was a little girl. As years past, I ordered KISS patches and shirts and posters and movies like KISS meets the Phantom of the Park and KISS Exposed as I grew up, and KISS dolls and masks and posters and snowglobes and wine glasses and everything that I loved i bought. i think i was 8 when I told my parents I wanted to join the KISS ARMY, my sister and I thought and still think that yall are the coolest cats to ever walk the face of the earth. Yall\'s 8-track was ALWAYS in our player in the basement were we would crank it up and jam. It was ALIVE, it was the only one we had at the time. I guess our parents had bought it when it came out, and this was in the late 70\'s very early 80\'s. As we got older, and the 80\'s came, we got the old and new albums and loved you even more. Rockin out with you live in concert was always always always my number one dream. I wanted so much to be old enough to see the four guys that made me so happy and so hyped up on stage ROCKIN OUT!!!!!!!!! FINALLY I was lucky enough and old enough to catch the reuion tour in Richmond VA, back where i was born, back where it all started. IT WAS MAGICAL!!!! I just wanna say each of you, all of you, have changed my life. Each song, each solo, each lick, each note, it\'s all right on, man. I can\'t even name a favorite song. it\'s impossible!!!! I also can\'t belive my mom let me go around singing at the top of my lungs \"she wants a rocket ride, she wants a rocket ride!\" at like 7 years old. ha! but whatever, it was all in good fun. I am 29 now, no harm done!!! i had no clue anyway. Man, if yall EVER come to the east coast, like near Virginia, I AM THERE!!! It would be an HONOR and a dream come true. a void filled. and I hope that you recieve this letter and accept my HUMBLE THANK YOU for changing my life and everyone should be amazed at you for changing the face of live music everywhere, you amazing Gods of Thunder, you. KEEP ROCKING OUT FOREVER, and givnig us crazy nights always. MUCH LOVE AND THANKS.............. EMILY. P.S. when i get married, it is SO going to be a KISS theme wedding. I wouldn\'t have it any other way.
