Stamping myth upon life, KISS had come to town like a dinosaur releasing its shit-sack on a mouse: It was December 19, 1977. I was 11. And it was a school night. Earlier that month, arms raised, my friend had burst upon the porch stoop, spitting out the impossible: \"I got the tickets! I got the fucking KISS tickets!\" \"Bullshit,\" I said. \"You can\'t. They don\'t exist.\" Because by that point, we were all gone-right after the kids in the neighborhood had come to blows over the Destroyer cover: 3, 4-then 5 of us, pounding out sandlot verdicts in a bloody scrum over who was who in the band. They were beyond epic. Bigger than the Sears Tower, God, the Pittsburgh Steelers, even. They were why I had wrapped my hands around my best friend\'s throat and wouldn\'t let go of the album jacket when that fight pile had surged and collapsed on top of me: \"That\'s Ace, you fucking idiot-the space man . . . .\" So this was blasphemy: Come on, man, Look! Here, in my hands! I\'ve got the fucking KISS tickets!-some deluded, haphazard rant from a boy dabbling in teenage magic. Or he was joking-that prick. He has to be. And I was going to flog him for it, nuts first. KISS wasn\'t real-were they?-he knew that. Everyone did. And to suggest otherwise-mortal?!-was cruel and absolutely absurd. \"Come on, man. Look! Here, in my hands! I\'ve got the fucking KISS tickets!\" And there they were-like 2 keys to the backdoor of the playboy mansion-dangling affront my own quivering suck: KISS, in concert, December 19, 1977-section, row and seat-Capital Center, Largo MD. That was the moment-the first time I truly saw myself, the imprint of my life and what I would seek to fill it. Because Gods, now, walked the earth, and everything I had ever known would have to be reconsidered. I was going to see KISS. Greg Christianson

From: Jennifer on 11/16/2008
With the Rock Band craze my 9 year old son has become a huge Kiss fan. He started listening to your songs in March and since then decided that he would be you in Kiss for Halloween. My husband came pretty close to nailing the make up on his little face. I know you get a ton of these pictures but it would be great if you could send my little guy a shout. He definitely had a one of a kind look this year in our neighborhood. At least in his age group. It was great. My son\'s name is Joseph. Sincerely, Jennifer Vaught Las Vegas, NV

Dear Mr Simmons, I\'ve wanted to write to you for sometime now, but I never found the right moment to do so. Nearly four years have passed sinced I filmed \'Rock School\' with you in the UK. I played the\'Peter\' in the Tribute band \'DRESSED TO KILL\' and to this day I still cannot believe that happened. It\'s one of the best moments of my life, especially as you paid me some great compliments after the show, so THANK YOU! I\'ll never forget that, you see two months earlier, my father passed away, after a brief battle with Cancer and I know he would have been so proud to have seen that. Although he never really \'got it\',me being in a band, he along with my mum, were very supportive. In 2006, whilst at work, I had an accident, which left me with a broken back. The road to recovery was long but with the correct therapy, I was so happy, not only to walk but to also play drums again! 2008, saw the return of KISS to Europe, so there was no way we were gonna miss that! We went to PARIS and LUXEMBOURGH......WE WERE NOT DISAPPOINTED! THE SHOWS WERE JUST AWESOME!!!!! You may or may not recall but I was right down the front dressed in full \'Destroyer\' costume and make-up. The \'Catman\' of course! I, along with my wife and children have been fans for years. My wife and I met each other at a KISS Expo in Switzerland! Alexis our son, even appeared in \'KISSTORY II\' (dressed as \'Ace Frehley\'). So, as you can see, YOU along with KISS are a big part of our lives. Whenever, we\'ve found ourselves faced with personal tragedies or trials, being a fan has helped us through this and you\'ve given us the inspiration to carry on. From the bottom of my heart I would like to say A HUGE THANK YOU! I appreciate that you\'re a very busy person and If you\'re reading this then you\'ve made me very happy. I wish you all the success for the future and admire your compassion to earn a living! I know, \'It\'s a dirty job but someone\'s got to do it!\' yours faithfully Rich Sawyer

I just thought I would send you some pics of the stage I built for my Kiss figures. I built this about ten years ago. It took me about 400 hours or so. Everything was hand made. The Kiss sign in back has actual light chasers in it like yours. I thought you might enjoy it.. Tim Mullen Vancover BC

From: DAVE on 11/16/2008
I just finished watching the DVD, Paul Stanley: One Live Kiss. All I can say is incredible! This is a concert from Paul Stanley’s solo tour two years ago. Backing him up is the House Band from the TV show Rockstar. There is a good mix of songs from Paul’s solo albums as well as Kiss songs. These songs have never sounded better. The band is incredible and Paul’s vocals sound as good as ever. The man doesn’t age. Also, one of my favorite Paul Stanley Kiss songs is on here: Magic Touch. To my knowledge Kiss never performed this song live. If you’re a Kiss or Paul Stanley fan, pick this up. It gets ten out of ten stars.

Dear Mr. Simmon\'s I had the opportunity to see you on Saturday, November 15, 2008 at the firehouse. Unfortunitly we did not get to meet. I want to thank you for visiting the great men and women of our community who risk there lives for us. My son is 14 years old and is a Junior Firefighter at the Garden City Park firehouse and enjoyed seeing you go up on the firetruck bucket. If anytime in the future you need to visit a firehouse, please consider the Garden City Park firehouse I am sure the Juniors ages 14 to 17 would give you a great tour. Thank you. P.S. still waiting on a New York tour date can\'t wait to see you guys

Dear Kiss Army, This year my family decided to represent Kiss Army at our friends annual Halloween party. It was such a blast. The house band invited us onstage to participate in "Rock N Roll all night" and I was blown away by the amount of flashes from cameras. It was a night I will never forget. Well now our local newspaper is having a photo contest and we need Kiss Army help. Can you please click on the link below(or cut and paste) and PLEASE vote for our photo? I do believe we blow away "Rusty the Robot". THANKS. .
New album ?
Subject: New album KISS?
From: merula6 on 11/13/2008
Hi there guys! First of all I like to say that you\'re the GREATEST band in the world! I saw you on the Arrow Rock Festival in Nijmegen (15th June \'08) and the way you played your songs; really awesome! This morning I heard on a Dutch radio station that KISS is intending to make a new album, with also new songs. Is this true? If it is I can\'t wait to hear it! I\'m looking forward to your answer! And Eric: I can\'t wait to see you with Alice Cooper in Essen next week! Ciao, ciao, Merel
