KISS is the greatest band ever!
Bryan Hume on 04/27/2007
Well, I\'m Bryan Hume. Most people probably will see me as just another KISS fan, but I assure you that I am much more than that. Alright, to start, KISS is my life. Every aspect of you guys creates a huge impact upon me. You have music to satisfy no matter what mood I\'m in. If I\'m depressed, I can easily find a song by you to instantly bring a smile to my face. You give inspiration to my life; heroes to look up to and dream to be like. When people, even my closest friends say or let alone hint at hating upon KISS, I promptly react in your guys\' defense and leave most speechless for my reasons to back you guys up. Goes to show that you can\'t argue; KISS is indeed the greatest band of all time.
I guess this sounds just like most fans, right? And in fact, I am just a kid who loves KISS, but I represent a new generation of KISS fans. Most of our music these days is horrible. I apologize for stereotyping, because you just can\'t find good bands like you guys anymore. Plus, rap is in the mainstream. Most of my generation might not even know who KISS is if I mentioned you guys to them. But if I asked if they knew someone like Fergie, for example, they would instantly know who that was, and that is not a good thing. Our music is going in the wrong direction.
It is my generation who can save our music, to bring back that good ol\' rock \'n\' roll. If someone doesn\'t do something soon, rock will die a painful death. I play the bass guitar, am completely self-taught, and have confidence in my playing. I want to be just like you guys, and I want to save rock and roll, and I know I\'m not the only one. But the slap of reality still hits me pretty hard in the face and I constantly ask myself; how would I do it? How can I do this, KISS? You guys went from unknowns to stars almost overnight. How did you make this rise to the top?
Anyway guys, on a lighter note, how are all of you? Gene, I\'ve been watching Family Jewels a lot, and can\'t help but wish that my dad was as cool as you. Haha, you\'re awesome, Gene! You\'ll probably laugh at me for this, but whenever I pick up my bass, I can\'t help but stick my toungue out and completely rock out. I guess something just comes over me. You\'re the best Gene. And Paul, I hear you\'re tour is going fantastic, keep it up! I\'ve never seen you guys live in person, only DVD\'s and videos on the Internet, etc. but to have you, Paul, come out here in Southern California (Anaheim, maybe?) and perform would be my dream. And Tommy and Eric, keep up the good work! You guys have worked really hard to get to where you are today.
As you can see in my picture, I have KISS and Make-Up, which I recently completed and thoroughly enjoyed, KISSology, which I can\'t get enough of of, as well as Destroyer and a neat little KISS Love Gun box with drumsticks, backstage pass, and concert tickets from August 20th, 1976 at the Anaheim Stadium. Yes, I am lacking in the KISS merchandise, but hey, I\'m only 14, and have plenty of time to get some more and plan to soon.
Well KISS, I bid you farewell for now, so keep rocking and inspiring millions.
P.S. Happy Birthday Ace! There is no guitarist out there better than you and you will forever go down in history as the greatest guitarist in history. Even though I play bass, I\'m thinking of learning to teach myself guitar, as well soon. And guess what I want as my first guitar? :)
