HEY KISS!!

School is ending in Austria now and I had a lot of problems this year. I had bad marks and it was possible that i have to repeat this grade. Life was hard in the last few weeks but every day I listened to kiss. Then i listened to the PSYCHO CIRCUS album to track number 7! The song is called raise your glasses!!! there was one sentence which gave me power again!!! "Been broken down, but not defeated I kept on punching back till i succeeded" yes I did it!! I made 7 exams in one and a half weeks!!! GUESS WHAT, I PASSED!!

KISS YOU HELPED ME TO PASS ALL THESE EXAMS! YOU TOLD ME NEVER TO GIVE UP!!

THANK YOU KISS

One of my twin sons, who are both handicapped and wheelchair bound, were recently in ICU at the hospital. He had breathing problems. In the past it was pneumonia. This time he wasn't releasing his carbon dioxide properly which made his fingers and lips turn blue. He was sedated and needed a breathing tube put into his airway right away. The next day he was still out of it, I asked his nurse if he can still hear everything even though he is out. The nurse said "Oh yes". So, I put my MP3 player on for him, which has a lot of KISS songs on it. He didn't make any kind of response... yet.

The next day I was flipping channels and started watching the Today show. I heard that Gene Simmons was going to be coming up next. I said to my son "Did you hear that?! Gene Simmons is coming up next!" He tried so hard to open his eyes and did manage to keep them open only for about 5 seconds or so. Then when Gene came on he watched the whole interview. So then, after that, I decided to put on one of his favorite dvd's from Kissology 3, which is disc 3. While the dvd was playing he kept opening his eyes and watching for a while and then closing his eyes again. Throughout the whole dvd, his nurse kept checking on him. When the dvd was over the nurse said to me, "His vitals remained low and stable through the whole dvd." I was so amazed.

After 4 days he was finally weaned off his breathing tube until it was ok to remove it.

Monday morning I brought my son a surprise. I taped the first show of season 4's, Gene Simmons Family Jewels. When I told my son about it he put a BIG smile on. He watched the whole show laughing and smiling.

He remained in the hospital for one week and happily is recuperating at home.

Back in February of this year, we had an amazing moment and met with Paul Stanley at his art show. I made arrangements with someone that works at the gallery and she spoke to the owner who made this great surprise for my sons happen. Paul was so patient and kind. His photographer took a lot of pictures. The gallery made two collages with each of Paul's autographs in the collage. It is BEAUTIFUL! My sons received two surprises, meeting Paul Stanley and the collages. The photo attached is the same photo I put up in my sons room when he was in the hospital. Every time he looked at it he put a BIG smile on his face.

We love to watch Kissology so when my other son is in the hospital I put it on for him. He loves Gene Simmons Family Jewels or anything else that has to do with KISS. All the while he is smiling.

I can't thank KISS enough for being there and STAYING STRONG!! None of the great moments and you guys helping my sons recuperate would have happened without you. We are and always will be KISS fans.

Sincerely with a mother's love,
Janice, and of course, Eddie and Anthony

Today, June 19th, is my 5 year wedding anniversary to my wife, Carla. I wanted to share the toast my best man, Mike, gave on our wedding night.

Raise Your Glasses
Thomas & Carla
June 19, 2004

It seems like 100,000 Years ago when this All American Man and this Torpedo Girl met this Hooligan. We lived, in many ways, Larger Than Life, as if we had Nothing To Lose. Always with Great Expectations, aiming to be King Of The Mountain. That was long ago, when our Flaming Youth seemed like it would last Forever. I Sure Know Something...we were Partners in Crime.

Fast forward many days and many Crazy Nights to the great occasion that brings us here today. Celebrating a Childhood's End and the beginning for Mr. and Mrs. Meyer, of a new Reason To Live. As a saying goes that you've heard many time and it's actually come true for both of you:

You Wanted The Best... and You Got The Best.

And so my friends, Raise Your Glasses. For Thomas and Carla, May you always Rock and Roll All Nite...and party everyday!

Thanks for the honor, Love and best wishes,
Mike

Happy Anniversary Carla, Love Ya!

Thomas

Hi! I am a fan from Brazil and i have a contest to do!

I saw this video of the Kiss Balloon and I would like to say for you guys the event happened in the state of Minas Gerais, close to a city called BELO HORIZONTE.

Do you recall us??

This event with balloons just proves (I don't know how can I write it!) to you that we want Kiss again here in Brazil. Belo Horizonte misses the band since '83!!

My uncle was at that concert and I went to the Rio concert this year!

This city wants to see Kiss again, and I wish I could go with my uncle.

Thank you for receiving my letter! I love you and Gene, I drew you!

Hey this is Rob Kiskaden wanting to share a video of my 2 year old son rocking out to KISS. He loves the band and music, and regularly watches the KISSology DVD's with me. He thought he was part of the audience when we were watching the Tokyo 1977 concert, up until he noticed I was videoing him. I'm still trying to convince his mom to let him join me to see the fall tour HOPEFULLY coming to Lexington, KY.

The Trip Of A Lifetime!

From: anthonym on 06/17/2009
Kiss,
We are about to start the trip of a lifetime. We are from New York City, and we are about to see KISS in Milwaukee, Sarnia, Windsor, Montreal, Halifax, and Paso Robles. Not only that, but we are doing the MEET AND GREET with you in Paso Robles. THIS IS A DREAM COME TRUE!!!!!!!

I have seen every KISS tour since Dynasty. There is NOTHING IN THE WORLD that can come close to the EXCITEMENT of a KISS concert!!!! The greatest memories of my life have all been related to seeing KISS. It is truly an experience unlike any other.

In the recent past, we have seen you in Cadott, San Jacinto, Las Vegas, and Lake Tahoe. It is an amazing feeling knowing that we are boarding a plane and at the other end of the flight there is KISS.

I want to take this opportunity to thank KISS for the years of happiness you have given to the fans, and especially me. I am so PROUD to be a part of THE KISS ARMY!!!!

If anyone out there wants to experience a life changing event, he or she needs to buy tickets and join the KISS FAMILY!

Nothing makes me happier than knowing I am going to see 6 more KISS shows. . .and a fall U.S. tour is coming our way too!!!!

See you in California. I will be the one wearing the blue University of Michigan hat. We can\'t wait to meet you.

KISS IS THE BEST, WILL ALWAYS BE THE BEST, AND THE PROOF IS RIGHT THERE. . . . .ON THE STAGE!!!!!!!!!!!

See you on tour. WE LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!!

From: djfrance on 06/16/2009
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.

Catman Doll
Subject: Catman Doll
From: radom1 on 06/16/2009
Hi KISS! It's Cassius and I just wanted to tell you that I got an Eric Singer doll today in the mail!!! Now i know what some of you might be thinking. "Why didn't Cassius say it was a Peter Criss Doll instead of an Eric Singer doll?". The answer to that question is because it only says "catman doll" on the side of the box I decided to say Eric Singer because he is the new catman...

Thanks,
Cassius=)
My Life changed February 9, 1976...
Subject: My Life changed February 9, 1976...
From: Scott on 06/16/2009
After viewing KISS for the first time on TV in the mid 70's I found what true Rock & Roll stood for. I could not wait to see KISS live. Finally after 3 canceled concerts my dream would come true. My senior year in high school I was able to experience KISS live, and it is still a part of my life.

February 9, 1976, we arrived early at the Terrace Ballroom in Salt Lake City, Utah. This venue only had festival seating (no chairs, just standing). I was one of the first ones in when the doors opened and I found myself center stage, front row.

When KISS finally took the stage I was in awe, I could not believe that KISS was there in front of me, live and in person. I can't begin to explain my feelings, I can still remember the feeling of utter excitement even after over 30 years. Gene spit drops of blood on me, I was overwhelmed. Pounding out the beat of each song on the stage, having you all sweat on me.

During the encore I noticed that Paul had a guitar with his signature on it and I thought that he just might give it up. Well, I was correct but only after it was smashed on the stage. I found in my arms a signed guitar from Paul Stanley, I had blood on me from Gene. What more was there to life, this was it, I was truly happy. I had to hide the guitar under my shirt as people were trying to rip it out of my hands.

When I arrived home my mom freaked and wanted to call 911, all she saw was blood all over me and a broken guitar in my hands. I finally calmed her down. The guitar hangs on the wall in my office and I proudly show it to anyone who I know will appreciate what it stands for, true Rock & Roll legends.

We are now much older and wiser but I still am able to transport myself back to those days when life consisted of Rock, cars, girls and just hanging out (not always in that order). I thank you all for being an instrumental part, a driving force of my teenage years. I still have the first car (1967 Mustang) I bought when I turned 16, I have the original 8-track tapes and when I get in this car and plug in Kiss Alive and I am instantly 17 again.

Again Thank you all for the memories.
