Hall Letter
Subject: Hall Letter
From: Bill Catron on 08/13/2006
Just wanted to let you all know I am trying to do my part as well to add myself with the many others to try and help you get the honor and respect that all KISS members and fans deserve that is LONG OVERDUE. Whoever receives this email please make sure the guys see it if possible, I am one of probably millions that would at least like to know that KISS has and always will be my greatest influence and heroes of rock \'n\' roll and I am passing that legacy on to my kids. GOD Bless You All and the many people working with KISS everyday. Please see the below email I sent to the rock hall of fame - I hope it hits a mark somewhere. -Bill Catron You need to induct KISS into your hall of fame and issue them an opology for the hall\'s ignorance. This is LONG OVERDUE and they definately deserve it with all the other bands that have already squeezed their way in with no where near the impact that KISS has had on the world. They have made rock history time and time again and sold more records than the Beatles.... yeah I know you have heard this all before, so what is the problem? Obviously you are not hearing it all before or you would have done something about it. Please get this email to the right people. This is not to tear down any others bands for say, but to acknowledge the fact that they meet all the requirements of the hall and should not be descriminated against. They are still a living rock legend, are you going to wait until after they are dead and buried to recognize them, or acknowledge them now in the living as the ROCK GOD\'s they are and give them what is due. I hope this letter is read by someone who cares about rock \'n\' roll and it\'s history and origins and would know that KISS has been they from the early start influencing musicians as they were influenced, instilling the desire to go above and beyond to express rock \'n\' roll and evolve with creating and changing the world and giving birth and influence to new Rock God\'s and heroes. Please if you can do anything with this letter besides delete it, please help. Otherwise I appologize for wasting you time but know that my time was not wasted. KISS Fan till my end, Bill Catron

This event was one that has been in my heart for the past 10 months and the fans of The Hottest Band In The World, made it a day that will go down in KISStory! I know I have a ton of people to thank, but I am going to take a couple of days for some down time with my family. Please come back to www.kissarmyunites.com this coming weekend for pictures, stories and Thank You\'s. KISS ARMY.....I LOVE YOU ALL

Gene Article
Subject: Gene Article
From: Mike Naimoli on 08/13/2006
A MUSICIAN\'S TALES OF KISS & MAKEUP August 7, 2006 -- SO Gene Simmons of KISS, with more gold records than any other Ameri can band ever, is burbling about his 16,500-square-foot house and recent $8 million check he showed his mother. So I\'m asking him, so, then, why\'s he doing a schlockola B-TV reality show for A&E? Said Gene: \"It\'s not about money. Bill Gates still gets up and goes to work. It\'s always, \'Now what are we going to do?\' I have books like \'Kiss and Tell\' and \'Sex, Money Kiss\' out with Phoenix. I have a pile of businesses. All tie-ins. I have to water those plants and remind the younger generation to spend on me. I use the show to shill. \"I\'m a partner in this show\'s production but, basically, I\'m too rich to care. Watch it if you like, and if you don\'t, don\'t.\" For whatever reason, we got onto his mom Florence, 81, who lives here, whom he just visited and about whom he says, \"Her English sounds like Zsa Zsa\'s.\" So a few minutes later Florence is telling me: \"I left Hungary for Israel, and when Gene, whose name then was Chaim, which means \'life,\' was 9 we came here. To Williamsburg. I went to work, $39 a week, as a piece-goods worker in a factory and enrolled him in Yeshiva. He spoke Hungarian and Hebrew, but the boys beat him up because he didn\'t speak English. I told him, \'Go to the bakery. There they speak Hungarian.\' He said, \'Because they speak Hungarian, I don\'t go there. I want to speak English.\' \" Will she be watching her only kid\'s show tonight? \"I see all his shows. I not only watch, I tape it. You know, I was there for his first show 30 years ago. I schlepped myself to this Queens Boulevard coffeehouse. Not many people there. And I nearly didn\'t recognize him in the makeup. I thought he was someone else. \"Always he wanted to be a musician, but I said, first you finish college. This is a country, I told him, that if you work hard you can make it. Friends called him a sissy because they smoked but not him. He wouldn\'t drink. Didn\'t do drugs. He was very hardworking. He would pray then go to school then do a paper route in Jackson Heights. Out of a schmatta, I made a bag to hold those newspapers. And the first money he got he bought me a corsage. My boy became a mensch all by himself. Never asked help from nobody. \"He wanted a guitar for $70. I had to save for that money. But I gave my word to buy it and kept my word. And he kept his. He finished college. Now he says, \'I thank my mom for everything.\' He said to me, \'When I was young and I wanted a cone of ice cream you gave it to me. Now I give you everything.\' \"I don\'t anymore have to worry about the rent like I once did. Today I even have a housekeeper I take along when I go to the senior center. Chaim would tell me, \'Mama, if I knock on one door and they don\'t open, I\'ll knock on another door.\' \" So, tonight, as the door to \"Gene Simmons Family Jewels\" opens, what the former Chaim Witz tells me is: \"American TV must be broadcast around the world. Arab countries need to see that here women have two eyebrows not just one. It\'s jeans, rock \'n\' roll and hamburgers that won the war on communism. Nobody\'s saying, \'Let\'s go grab some hummus.\' They\'re saying, \'Let\'s grab a burger.\' Our culture must be heard around the world.\"

New Zealand Fans

From: Victoria McNaughten on 08/13/2006
My name is Victoria and I live in the small country of New Zealand. I am a huge Kiss fan, so much that it hurts. It saddens me that there is not a solid Kiss fan base in this country as I would love to share my experiences and thoughts on my passion to others. I have decided to take decisive action and set up a Kiss fan base out here. I need someone to drive me in the right direction. So I have contacted the direct source which is Kiss online. Please, please may I have some feed back and advice on how to set this up? Do I need rights? Any formalities etc. It is time New Zealand stood up and united with millions around the world and pay tribute to this incredible band. I love Kiss!! Please reply to my address: KizzThiss@hotmail.com - Thanks.

There is a show on Rogerstelevision New Brunswick, cable ten, called Acadieman, the first Acadien super hero. Well I was watching it and Kiss was on, their likeness anyway. I dont know much about copywrites but I do know that the Kiss logo and the band members make up are copywrited and I did not see any permission given to use it. He, Acadieman, perform a song that sounds just like Deuce. I just wanted to let you know that this was happening. For more information check out www.rogerstelevision.com or www.acadieman.com .
