Alive 35” in Kelseyville California

“Kiss Alive 35” in Kelseyville California, Sunday August 31st. Hard, Loud, Pyro, Lights, Larger than life, in your face, must be KISS! And Kiss it was, who rocked 5,000 plus and 2,000 others who rocked out in the parking lots in Kelseyville California as Kiss decimated any act to play there yet! Before the show, we talked to fans that traveled across the US for the show and plenty of locals who could not believe Kiss would honor our small section of the country. The band was phenomenal, every song, flawless. Kiss played a lot of songs that we haven’t heard live in some time. They rocked a set from the first alive tour, wow! This was our personal first time seeing Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer in action with Paul and Gene. We were floored! Tommy is a very exceptional guitarist. He played flawless, his riffs were incredible and he dazzled the crowed. Eric’s drums were perfection all night. How can anyone mention a list of the greatest drummers of all time, if they have never heard him play? Eric Singer is truly one of the best drummers we have ever heard live! Did I mention he can sing? Wow! Eric’s vocals on song like “Nothing to lose” and “Black Diamond” Eric did Kiss fans proud! What do expect though? Gene and Paul would never settle for less than perfection and they got it with Tommy and Eric. Two thumbs up! The longest running Kiss fans got what they have come to expect, perfection. New and young Kiss fans, had there minds blown away. People, who came to see the show out of curiosity, walked away Kiss fans for life! On behalf of Mendocino and Lake County’s in Northern California, thank you Kiss! You gave us a show of a life time! John Turner, Anthony Morrison & David Moore The “Radio Reality Check” Crew
My Travels To Lake Tahoe To See !!
Subject: My Travels To Lake Tahoe To See KISS!!
From: achley15 on 09/02/2008
Hi, My name is Ashley McGrath and my dad Ted and I flew all the way from Indiana to see KISS! We left on August 29th and we had to go to St.Louis, then to L.A., then to Reno. Well, when we got to L.A. a woman who works for the airline directed us to the wrong terminal!!! We MISSED out flight! We were stuck and we had no luggage! That was hard because I have a one year old. Anyway, the next day we had a new flight scheduled for 8 a.m. When we were in line to board, my dad was earing a KISS shirt. The pilot saw him and came to us and complimented him on his shirt. My dad said, \" We are flying to Reno to go to the KISS concert.\" The pilot said, \" No way, I am staying the night in Reno! This is awesome I want to go!\" We told him where it was and he said he would be there, but when we got to the concert, it was sold out so I bet he didn\'t get in. As we were flying the pilot came on the intercom, and said since it was such a beautiful day that we would fly over Lake Tahoe so the KISS fans that were lucky enough to go to the KISS concert could see where we would be! How awesome is that? So we ended up making it to Reno in time thankfully! Then we got to the concert and had such a great time! It had been 4 years since KISS had come ti Indiana, and we decided that we weren\'t missing this concert! It was really windy, and we were worried about Gene, Paul, Tommy, and Eric when they were up in the air during the show. We could see them swaying up there. We stayed at Circus-Circus Hotel and Casino and the day we were leaving we saw a face painting stand. They had a picture up of Gene\'s makeup and said that they could do it. My dad had never been on a plane before so it was a big deal for us to fly. All together we had 16 people with us flying. My husband\'s mom decided to get married while we were there so that\'s why there were so many. I have pics that I\'ll put up later! Thank you KISS for such a good time and for making the airport hassle worthwhile!!

Gene-- Thanks for the great show at Konocti last night. Here is a \"sinister\" shot I took of you at the show. Thanks again and both myself and my seven year old son, Raymond, hope to catch you on the next tour! Matthew & Raymond Farmer Fresno, California (NOTE TO ADMIN: I took a few good photos of the show but I see there is no mass upload capability. I have about six or seven other shots that I think are pretty good. If there is any interest in having me pass these along, please let me know.)

From: calspeed on 08/31/2008
\"Alright Las Vegas, you wanted the best, you got the best, the hottest band in the world KISS!\" These words will be ringing in my ears forever. That was my first concert ever and it will probably always be the best. I am only 16 and I went with my parents, little brother, uncle, and some cousins. We bought our tickets in the pre-sale the second they went on sale. We were over on Tommy\'s side of the stage and in all we caught 4 guitar picks. Hopefully we will go see KISS again the next time they tour. _\\,,/ NEVER STOP ROCKIN! \\,,/_

Hi Paul,Gene,Eric and Tommy, I\'m a big fan of KISS for about 30 years. I saw my first KISS concert in Nijmegen the Netherlands at Arrow Rock 2008. It was just great. I think this is the best line up KISS has ever had. I\'ve listen to the new KISS album JIGOKU-RETSUDEN.I listen it over and over. This is cool. Why don\'t you record a new studio album with the best line up (also Tommy and Eric on vocals) and put it together with JIGOKU-RETSUDEN as one album, just like Journey did. I\'m sure this album will be Platinum. If you come back to the Netherlands (Europe 2009/2010) I will be there with my family. Manny Thanks, Rob

Hi guys, first of all let me tell you I love ya all! I\'m a long time fan, I just bought the japanese CD you released and it\'s amazing hearing some hystorical with the \"current\" KISS! The Italian KISS Army is struggling to have some new songs from you, our heroes! We are waiting in faith, you gave us the best music all over these years and we bet you can do it again. Of course we still love everything you did and do, but we know that KISS can make us feel the magic again again and again, we\'re never tired of good music and boys you do some really good music!!!! Please, just think a bit about it, will you? Gene, don\'t worry true fans BUY music, don\'t steal it. We are here with our credit cards already in our hands!!! How could we miss another amazing KISS cd cover?? With much love to all, hoping to see you again live soon, one of your faithful fans Sabry

From: gshaller on 08/28/2008
Well, it finally happened! After 35 years, there is finally a KISS studio album that captures the vibe of what KISS sounds like in a live setting. That album is \"JIGOKU-RETSUDEN,\" and it is outstanding. I\'ve been a member of the KISS Army since the original makeup era, and I have loved every minute of these many great years. As a long-time fan, I am VERY pleased that you\'ve decided to immortalize this current lineup by going into the studio and making something that is a great tribute to KISS\' career. With \"JIGOKU-RETSUDEN,\" you\'ve managed to hit that amazing mix of raw and polished. It\'s the sound of KISS, and the production really captures what this band is all about. Gene, Paul, Tommy, and Eric have all done a fantastic job here. Now PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE do the KISS Army another favor and bring us some new music from this great lineup! The musical cohesion speaks for itself on \"JIGOKU-RETSUDEN,\" and at present I can only imagine how crisp and exciting a new CD would be with you 4 at the helm. \"JIGOKU-RETSUDEN\" was worth every penny, so please consider making some NEW music. My ears and my dollars await! MANY thanks! Gary Shaller, Co-host of the PodKISSt! mykisslife.net/podkisst

I\'ve been listening to it all morning. what a relief! I was excited about this release but it could have gone sooo wrong...but...it\'s great! First impressions, cool Krameresque production, great drumming, great singing, and some tracks (I Was Made For Lovin\' You, Forever, Heavens On Fire, Shout It Out Loud, Do You Love Me and Hotter Than Hell) are actually a notch above the original versions! Amazing but true!! The lead vocals on Forever are (for me) even better than the original and the new production on I Was Made For Lovin\' is crisper, and more rocked up. I wish Sure Know Something and Magic Touch could\'ve been redone as well, but you can\'t have everything. Genes vocals are superb and Eric Singer sounds great on the backing vocals and on his lead vocals on Black Diamond. Best of all the recordings are cohesive and have a consistent \"band\" personality, Tommy, Eric, Paul and Gene are so tight! So all is well, the \"new\" band cut some great tracks in the studio...so how about a BRAND NEW ALBUM with new songs with the same producer and mindset? Please.
