Hi guys from one of your Australian fans, I changed jobs a couple of years back after having served in the police force for 19 years. As a train driver I now have the luxury of listening to the greatest band in the world while I work and it inspired me to write the following poem. I hope you enjoy it, I call it Rock n roll marathon. When I got my first kiss it was such a thrill. She was hotter than hell and dressed to kill. So alive, a destroyer couldn’t stop me now. The originals reminded me, it’s not who but how. Love to rock n roll over, can always do with a few. Get your lovegun out and she’ll feel alive too. A double platinum feeling, I hate to kiss and tell. Like four solo acts and a best of as well. An army was formed and they sing along. As we took off, on a rock n roll marathon. A dynasty created, keep up or be unmasked. The elder will tell you it’s never going to last. Killers let loose like creatures of the night. Make you lick it up, always ready for a fight. You sometimes have to anamalize your inner child. Locked in an asylum, crazy nights, running wild. Smashes thrashes and hits, I can take it all. It’s hot in the shade, get revenge, you’re going to fall. Still alive, three times could have failed. You can kiss my ass, not going to be nailed. And the army stand with pride, loving the ride. As we power along, on a rock n roll marathon. So celebrate unplugged because you wanted the best. You’ve got the best, but don’t forget the rest. Cause the greatest kiss is like a carnival of souls. The final sessions, all members played their roles. Psycho circus in town and a return to the paint. The box set is awesome, a pretender it aint. The very best of kiss, a symphony of pleasure. The millennium collection, like gold to treasure. As the chronicles of time and alive 35 will show. They’re the greatest ikons we’ve seen, you know. The army still sings, loud and proud since 75. The guys are still rockin, fast, hard and alive. Together as one, on a rock n roll marathon. Anyway thanks for all the great tunes and I hope to see you again in the land down under. Pete Messom
Richard Ray\'s Comments Concerning Original Line-up
Subject: Richard Ray\'s Comments Concerning Original Line-up
From: kissfan2025 on 03/02/2009
Dear Gene, I haven\'t written to Kiss Online in a while, but after reading the comments from Richard Ray concerning the original line-up, particularly Peter, I felt I had to write. I pick you to address it to as I know in the past you\'ve expressed, even on DVD, that you wish that the original group had stayed together but you\'ve also stated what happened with Peter & his \'situation\'. I\'m aware that Peter has acted like he was \'held back\' in Kiss, that HIS material was over-looked, etc. You, Gene, on the other hand, have maintained that Peter was let go due to \'substances\'. Although I can\'t speak for Peter, I do believe, though, that as a fan, I can possibly offer where things may\'ve gone wrong. \'Beth\' was a humongous hit for Kiss. It was also instrumental in myself becoming a fan. I was in the 7th grade then (I\'m 45 now). I LOVED the song! I then proceeded, if memory serves me correctly, to buy Rock and Roll Over, then Kiss Alive!, then Destroyer, then the 1st 3 albums, & finally Love Gun as soon as it was released. Interestingly, even though \'Beth\' is what \'hooked\' me, I found myself to actually be more of a hard rock fan along the lines of Kiss, Aerosmith, Queen, Ted Nugent, etc. \'Beth\', I believe, was a turning point for Peter. Even though it was considered a Kiss hit, I believe it went to Peter\'s head since it was his song, he sang it, & all of that. A short while later, \'Hard Luck Woman\' was also a hit, & even though Paul wrote it, Peter once again sang lead vocal. Gene, keep in mind that within 2 years you guys were all coming out with solo albums. That\'s a FAR cry from where you guys were, even as late as Love Gun. On Kissology Vol. 2 commentary, Paul pointed out how even though Peter played in a rock band, he was actually more of a \'big-band, swing\' type of drummer, & that that\'s sort of what he brought to Kiss. Here\'s another area that I feel has bothered Peter. Remember, he was a \'drummer willing to do anything to make it\'. I think part of the problem is that Peter really WAS a \'big-band, swing, jazz, easy listening, oldies, ballads\' type of musician, but his success was achieved in a HARD ROCK band. Could it be possible that in a sense that Peter DENIED himself? He was really the previously mentioned performer, but he also wanted to hit the big time, so he was \'willing to do anything to make it\'. So I believe in a way that he denied what he REALLY wanted & went with Kiss. Kiss did indeed hit the big time, but he STILL wasn\'t happy. I personally believe these type of issues caused him to not even be satisfied when he had fame & fortune, & I believe his part in the hits that Kiss was having ultimately went to his head & he felt it ought to be about himself. Gene, I\'ll be honest with you & admit that back in the day even I thought that Peter & Ace were treated like \'underdogs\' & that you & Paul wanted all the spotlight, but in this present day & age, I\'m kind of getting both sides of the story. I believe you truly DID want the original line-up, but, oh well! In closing, I\'d like to say that personally I believe Peter AND Ace should\'ve stayed, because let\'s face it, the solo gigs didn\'t exactly pan out, yet Kiss CONTINUED to have success regardless, & they lost out on that. I also believe that Kiss is the type of band where the whole is GREATER than the sum of its\' parts. In other words, Kiss is a cohesive whole that WORKS as a whole. I don\'t believe ANY member of Kiss should EXCLUSIVELY have a solo career IN PLACE of Kiss. As Stan Lee used to say, \"NUFF SAID!\" Sincerely, Tim H. Moss kissfan2025

Gene and Paul, Attached is a photo I took of the band during the Alive II tour, in Lubbock, Texas in 1977. The photo is self-explanatory as to why you guys were the biggest band on the planet. It was my first Kiss concert and I\'ve been hooked ever since. I just wanted to thank you for the memories. The Professor
