12-year-old Kevin Brewster of Chapmanville, WV was sure of one thing. He wanted his 13th birthday party to rock! He encouraged his parents to throw him a huge "Guitar Hero" themed party in a local school's gymnasium. Kevin and his band "War Threat" would play to open the party. Then, things would be turned over to me, a local DJ. Kevin and I are both huge KISS fans. Kevin didn't know this, but his mom did. So when the stage curtain opened and the crowd of about 200 kids heard the sounds of Detroit Rock City blasting throughout the gym, and I walked out decked in my replica Gene costume, the place went nuts. Just to see the look on Kevin's face! It was awesome. I have to admit I was a little worried how it would go over right before they opened the curtain. Now I say never doubt the power of KISS! I spent more than an hour taking pictures with the kids after the party ended! I feel like I did my little part in recruiting some new members to the army.
