I just wanted to say what a wonderful guy you really seem to be. I LOVE watching you speak on tv. You are so intelligent and well spoken. Always a treat.
Well I have to tell you a little story. I\'m 30 years old. A few years back (I believe when I was 22) I began getting really ill. I was having major bleeding from my lungs. I was basically drowning in my own blood. Thankfully (as horrible as it was), I coughed up the blood. Well as you can imagine, I was young, scared and no doctor seemed to know what was wrong with me. My mom (an amazing single mom) died when I was 15 years old. She died of a major blood clot. So right away they figured this is what was wrong with me. I was placed on blood thinners, the problem got worse and more blood. eep
well time went on and over a corse of a year I struggled with this on and off. I spent MUCH time in the hospital, in and out of ICU. I had a few procedures done and now I\'m all \"fixed up\" and healthy and happy. Why I\'m telling you this story is because of how you helped me though all this. In my wicked humor, I used to tell the doctors that I wasn\'t sick, that I was simply practicing to take over for Gene Simmons in KISS when the time comes that he may choose to retire. Spitting blood on stage, I\'d be a pro :-P
Point is I am tahnkful for your music and your talent. And hey, without your cool ROCK show, I\'d never have had a punchline to go off of LOL.
I live in Prince Edward Island Canada... major rumours happening that KISS may tour this area of Canada. I SO hope so, I\'ve NEVER seen you live and I\'d HAVE to check out the blood spitting for myself. Maybe I\'ll get to see you and maybe one day meet you. I\'d really love to thank you in person.
have a wonderful one and thank you again
