KISS memories from Sweden

Posted on 09/19/2011
Hello! When I was going through some of my old stuff the other day, I found a scan of this great article my mother had saved. The headline reads (in Swedish) ”world celebrities in miniformat at the melody-festival”, and the article comes from a local newspaper here in Sweden. It’s me (as the catman) and my friends in full make-up and costume. This was in 1997, a couple of months after my first ever KISS concert at Stockholms Olympic Stadium (14.06.97). I was seven years old and needless to say I’ve been stuck with the band ever since. The song we played was ”I was made for lovin’ you” and I can remember being so nervous I could barely hold on to my drumsticks in front of the 400 people there. We had blood pills for ”Gene”, wooden guitars and ice torches as pyro in the show. I can also remember us all being angry att the reporter when she told us all to stick out our tongues, and we told her only ”Gene” was supposed to do that. Apparently she didn’t listen… I thought this was a great piece of my own Kisstory, and I just wanted to share it! Looking forward to seeing you guys in Sweden again, / Adam Trevik
