Hi. I have always wanted you guys to have a listen to 2 songs I covered of yours. It's not released or anything. I just did it for fun and because I am a fan, so please don't sue me. I'd love to hear your thoughts on it. They are on my old bands website at:

I have been a KISS fan for years, you guys are truly the best band ever! I have had the pleasure of seeing you 4 times in the past, my dream is for both my kids to be able to experience the magic of a show!! I was diagnosed with cancer in 2003 and have fought like hell, but the thing is you keep on fighting!! Lifes short, you have to enjoy every minute, I hope and pray you come to Georgia or Tennessee because I will not miss this chance to get my kids in that arena to experience what I have been able to in the past!! You ROCK and you guys never stop.....Alive35.....

Hi dear friends,

I´m writing from Argentina far South in the American continent I´ve been a hugh Kiss fan for more than 20 years and I have just decided to write to you to tell you that by chance or some mystic force I was born on the same day Gene was, August 25th. That adds something special to my birthday parties each year reminding me of how much KISS means to me; passion and worship to the greatest band on Earth.

I´m really looking forward to the new release due to next October,

I really look forward to an answer from you guys I also attach photos from a recent collectors´ meeting held in my small hometown where I was invited to show my collection .

Greetings from sunny Argentina

Fabián

How changed a country 1983.

To Paul and Gene. There is a big country in South America called Brasil ,that you know very well, but perhaps you dont know how Kiss changed the face of a generation during an important time of transition to democracy in our country.
From 1981 to85 the whole country went to the streets asking for the end of the military regime, we wanted democracy,we wanted to vote,we wanted to open the country to the rest of the world.
Rocknroll during the military regime was very marginal.We never had a major rock concert in the country til 1983...
The album was Creatures of the night, and it hit the stores together with the shows schedule in Sao Paulo,Rio,Belo Horizonte.The country was taken by storm.Kids would go nuts just looking at the cover of the album.The video from I love it loud start playing on tv late at night.Kids would stay til late to see it, and comment in school the day after. But the military and religious conservatives started a campaing against the realization of the concert. They will put parents on panic giving away flyers in schools and universyties saying that Kiss were massengers of evil and that a great catastrofy would happen to those who attent.K ids In S atans S ervice it was writen.Animal sacrifices onstage....very bizzare.You please have to consider that our country got the 1st major rock concert with Kiss...no less.The looks,the performence would scare your parents much more than any other band at the time.I dont think that Cheap Trick would have the same problem if they were playing here at the time.They tryed to put a lot of pressure in the kids, and I know for a fact that thousands of those kids attended that concert without their parents permission (including me).
The Kiss concerts in Brasil 1983 were a experience that nobody will ever forget.With the unique formation of Gene,Paul,Vinnie Vicent and Eric Carr that had his drumkit on the top of a War Cannon That fires during his solo.Blood spitting,pirotecnics,Paul destroying a guitar...we got out of that stadium without knowing what hit us,we felt like rockroll superheros.The show was a celebration of rock and peace.In one of the Kiss videos,Paul refers to this concerts as the biggest crownd Kiss ever got, 150 000 in Maracana stadium in Rio and 100 000 plus in Sao paulo just to see Kiss.
Well ,to finish the story,after that concert,Brasil became a part of the international tours of the greatest rocknroll bands and also, other styles too.Big festivals started to be organized like the first Rock in Rio in 85 with Ozzy,Iron,Whitesnake and others.The same year we elected our first president.We are know today as a warm and very intense audience that caused even the release of DVDs from major international bands live in BRASIL.
THANK YOU KISS FOR BREAKING OUR SEAL AND PUT US ON THE MAP OF
ROCKNROLL.THAT CONCERT CHANGED THE WAY WE SEE ENTERTAINMENT FOREVER TURNING BRASIL A ROCKNROLL COUNTRY.

Um Abraco
Alex

hey guys! I've seen your show on July 13 and it rocked! It was the 4th time I saw you in concert. Everytime, I feel like a kid in a toy store. Not only does your show rocks but it is soooo much fun! It's like a big party for 15,000 people! I was amazed at the age range at your show. I was sitting next to 7 year old kids wearing make up. Guess your music transcend generations.. Can't wait to see you guys soon!

Guys!!! You are the greatest band in the history of the planet. I can't wait to check out the new album. I was recently asked to DJ a birthday party for a friend's son. The 13 year old wanted a Guitar Hero themed party. He asked that everyone wear a shirt of their favorite rock band. He was wearing a KISS shirt. His mom knew I was a card carrying fanatic of the KISS army. So she asked me to provide the music...little did either know I was planning to take his birthday to the next level by showing up in full on Gene Simmons costume. The kids had a great time and I'm sure I recruited a few new members to the KISS army! I hope to see you guys on tour soon! Are new costumes a possibility for the new album and tour?

Thanks for all the years of magic!

To the ABSOLUTE HOTTEST BAND in the WORLD... KISS...

Thank you for making us the HAPPIEST TWO GIRLS in the WORLD!

Just a little over a week ago, our spirits plummeted when we were not selected as one of the winners of the Ultimate KISS Fan contest. We believed that our chance to meet KISS and be photographed with the band was such a long way off.

You see, we traveled to Buenos Aires to see the show in April. At that time, we were invited backstage to meet the band. Unfortunately, there was so much chaos backstage, we were asked to clear the area. At that time, we did have an opportunity to get a picture with Tommy and Gene. Having the opportunity to see KISS in a venue like Buenos Aires was life changing, and coming home with two very special pictures was an amazing gift. And yet, we still left with the desire to have a picture with the whole band.

This last week has truly been one of the best of our lives. First, we won tickets to see 3/4 of KISS unmasked at the Radical Publishing party at the Hard Rock Hotel San Diego. It was like seeing KISS at a private house party. We were blown away.

And then... WE MET KISS backstage in Paso Robles and left with the picture of our dreams. THANK YOU KISS, and a very special THANK YOU to Dean and Mike. While backstage we felt as if we were in a dream. Everything happened so fast. Our hearts raced... we felt SO ALIVE...

And then, Tommy remembered us. How mind blowing is that! He remembered the picture we took together in Buenos Aires.

We truly are the luckiest girls in the whole world... (and yes, the harder we work, the luckier we seem to get).

So for all the amazing KISS fans, dreams DO come true... don't stop believing.

KISS, we are the KISS ARMY VIXENS and we are awaiting our next assignment. We will follow you anywhere. You will never have to ask if we love you... we will forever let you know it...

All our love and KISSes,

The Kiss Army Vixens
