Posted on 01/17/2013My parents were very ''worried" that their nine year old son was obsessed with Kiss, circa 1979. They came into my bed room, shut the door and said we all needed to "talk". They promised they would raise my allowance from 35 cents to 50 cents if I stop listening to KISS for good and start a new hobby like comic books. I took them up on the offer only to return listening to KISS when I was "old enough" (10 years old). Three years later, they told me I was obsessed with collecting too many comic books. I remind them of this story to this day which they of course claim they have absolutely no recollection of.
