Good evening!! What could a humble Brazilian fan, far from the USA, tell about Kiss? I just don´t feel I can address you, but I must thank you. I explain: I first listened to Kiss when I was 15, so it was 13 years ago. And playing Alive! in my bedroom every day was like opening a Pandora´s box, from where came out the self-confidence, the determination and the toughness I needed so much. Suddenly, it was easy to approach girls, to ask them out, to hang out with the guys... to live a normal teen life. And I´ve been listening to you since my highschool and college days, always learning to be decided, to push hard for what I want and to have fun, of course. I ended up becoming an English teacher, and I´m happy to see my students buying and saying how much they love "Destroyer", "Alive!", "Love Gun"... I even use the songs to teach´em the language. Because I think Kiss may do to them what it has done to me. Basically, this is it. Thank you for letting me post here and hope to see you here. Can hardly wait for "Sonic Boom"!!!!
