the Elder LIVE
Subject: the Elder LIVE

and most importantly DOWN UNDER!! We love this album, right? The Oath would set things off wonderfully, and I would be a great finisher. Dark Light without Ace would break my heart though. I think its the only song I could handle Tommy singing though. Or 200 Man. Ace\'s material is sacred. The Elder is full of awesome songs. The Oath, Only You, and Under The Rose being particular highlights. Can you just imagine this concert? The Oath absolutely pummeling the audience. Fanfare, a moment to watch the amazing smoke and laser effects KISS would put on for us. Just A Boy, with its sweet Star-child chorus, epic lyrics, and tasteful solo. Dark Light next up. This song speaks for itself! It rocks! Maye an extended solo from Tommy? Only You, simply put, one of Gene\'s best songs, followed by Under the Rose yet another of the Demon\'s best efforts. A World Without Heroes, we know they can play this one, no excuses!! =) Mr Blackwell, could this have Gene\'s blood act at the beginning? Seems to fit! This would also mean 5 Gene songs in a row. This song would be pretty heavy live. I reckon it would surprise a few. Escape from the Island would provide a great pick me up for the crowd and gives Eric a great chance for a solo in the middle. Odyssey would be bloody great live. Another chance for Paul to shine. Live it would be good because Paul cant harmonize with himself live. Although his ovice is so good I wouldnt be surprised if he could defy all science and logic and be able to sing with two voices at once. I would be the big Rock and Roll All Nite style finish. It\'s an anthemic, uplifting, inspiring party song. The dual vocals would be great to. It wouldnt be bad to possibly hear them all trade verses perhaps. Just a thought. The sound of 20,000 people clicking their fingers would definitely make the hairs on my neck stand up. This gig would definitely be a pleasure to watch. It almost seems as if they wrote and recorded the album with the idea of playing it start to finish in mind. The way I included the individual solos just seemed perfect. Especially with the bass intro that already exists on Mr Blackwell. During Espace From the Island it seems that a drum solo belongs in the middle. 5 Gene tunes in a row might be difficult though. Gene might forget the words! Which annoys me I might add. Just watch Unholy on the ROCKS THE NATION dvd, its bad. I Love it Loud is another one he always bombs. He tries to say he\'s in the moment, but I\'ve seen countless junkie LA bands sing their songs live and they dont forget the words, and Gene\'s totally clean. Axl Rose seemed to be able to remember his words, but then again he had an auto cue. Not in the early days though. What about all these weed smoking rappers? They memorise pages of lyrics just for one song!! Anyway...... back to the matter at hand. THE ELDER in its entirety live in concert!! Come on KISS, do it! Would this concert be too short though? I mean, Id rather it if KISS didnt play any non Elder songs..... well, maybe after \'I\' they could do an encore and play a handful of classics. Which would also give Paul a chance to sing some more songs, seeing as he only has 3 songs to himself on (music from) the Elder. What do you guys reckon? I\'d love to hear your input guys....

Hi You All, guys: I´m from Puerto Montt, a city at the Southern part of Chile. I´m 34 tears old and I grew listening your rock. I always wanted a tattoo, but I never did it. Well, last month become the day and “Demond” was chosen. I´m very proud of it and “Star Child” will be the next, I promise. In that way, KISS only would die for me, when I will die. Thanks for your music, guys. You make our lives better. Best regards Gastón

My new favorite band!

From: Angel.9 Rakou Cobra on 09/06/2006
Hi, KISS. My name\'s Jessica, but most people call me Angel.9 Rakou Cobra (long story, don\'t ask). I\'m only 15, but a huge fan already. I\'ll admit it... I only started listening to you pretty recently... but as soon as I heard you, you became my favorite band EVER. And you\'ll probably stay that way. I can\'t stand what everyone else my age listens to. It\'s also thanks to you that I\'ve been daydreaming of being a lead singer in a really loud, make-up-wearing, awesome rock band of my own. I mean, I\'ve even designed stage names and costumes for my entire wish-was-real band! (And I\'ve been working some songs out in my head) I really want to be famous like you guys. If I make it, remember me, because I\'ll be sure to thank you on stage someday... If it happens I mean... Anyway, I just couldn\'t wait to say hello. And I couldn\'t wait to tell you I bought a copy of KISS Meets the Phantom of the Park. I don\'t care what people say, I loved that movie. And I wish I could breathe fire... (Hmm... I can stick my tongue out really far though...) Yeah, yeah... I\'m shutting up. I get it. Bye! Love you all, Angel.9 P.S. Hope none of you mind, but on my own website, I\'ve got stories I wrote posted that have you in them (I\'m the main character, however...). They\'re just comedies about me, my friends, and my favorite rock bands attempting to party... then a handful of my stupid enemy characters crash it. Needless to say, we always stop them and party by the end. I have three finished at the moment, and each is pretty long (the third is huge!). And yes. I really am shutting up this time.
New pinball machine artwork???
Subject: New pinball machine artwork???
From: Brett Bartlett , Australia on 09/06/2006
Hey Gene, I see that there is a new pinball machine in the works and that\'s cool. However, the artwork shown appears to feature Peter & Ace...now I love those guys and all they brought to the band..but this is 2006, Eric & Tommy are now in the band. Shouldn\'t any official KISS products now feature their images? It only seems fair to them! When Eric Carr joined he was on the merchandise of the time & the same with the other line ups through the 80\'s & early 90\'s. Personally I\'d like to see some action figures in Eric & Tommy\'s likeness available. Please share your thoughts on this.... (attached is a pic of us backstage in Brisbane in 2004, my wife Donna & I were doing the make-up for the orchestra members at that show) Cheers Brett Bartlett Brisbane, Australia

My Brothers, thanx so much for keeping the music alive!! It doesn\'t matter to me that Tommy and Eric are in \"The Make-Up\" of Ace and Peter, actually it\'s kinda cool. Those guys rock just as hard!! The band sounds better than ever! Rock And Roll Over Forever!!!!!!!!
Europe concert?

From: Wibe on 09/05/2006
Dear Kiss, I\'m really a big fan of yours. The problem is that I haven\'t seen you in a concert or even in living live. I live in Holland, so it\'s too far for me to go to a concert in for example Las Vegas. Will there be a concert somewhere in Europe sometime? Better, will there maybe be a concert in Holland? Wibe

My Letter To You
Subject: My Letter To You
From: Joakim on 09/05/2006
Write a letter to the band.. hmm, there is so many things you would like to say, so many moments you would like to share. Ive been listen to Kiss for many many years, other bands to, im a \"musicaholic\". But everytime i put on a Kiss album it feels like its genuine, the original, the way music should be. Ive been to two concerts, both in Stockholm Sweden in the \'90, first time i will never forget.. i was standing close to the stage and i heard the speaker go \" You wanted the best and you got the best - the hottest band in the world - KISS!! and there you all were.. just a few meters from me.. the band who i had played on my uncles recordplayer when I was a child.. i remember putting thin paper on the recordcovers and drew a copy of the picture while listen to the record over and over again.. you where my gods. I even sometimes pretended that it was me standing on the Destroyer cover, looking all cool and everyone looked up to me.. and I was god. Now im turning 30 soon and life has had its ups and downs as for all of us, and when i look back on the times at my uncle and listen to \"God gave rock \'n\' roll to you it seems like i understand it all. Everything is possible, take your chance and do something about it, we are all humans, nothing more nothing less and if you want something go get it. God gave rock \'n\' roll to you - put it in the soul of everyone - live your life and enjoy. Thank you all thats been apart of Kiss. I wished that i could give something back, so I wrote my letter to you. Good luck in the future! Joakim - sweden
Chances of another Aussie Tour
Subject: Chances of another Aussie Tour
From: Shane pearson on 09/05/2006
My daughter (Jade-E) was only 2 last time you toured Australia,(Brisbane) My wife and I at the time felt she would not be able to handle the level of volume for her young age. SHE WAS SHATTERED!!! that we were there but she wasn\'t. We absolutely loved the show. I have been a fan since I first heard \"I was made for loving you.\" in 1978, I was only 6 then. I have promised my daughter to take her next time you are in Australia. Is there any chance that you will tour Australia again? Jade-E is a huge fan of KISS and plays your DVD\'s and CD\'s all the time. I don\'t mind at all because I love listening and watching also. Shane Pearson.
