Posted on 01/17/2013KISS stepped into my life when I was 10 years old. That was back in 1977. Today I am 45 and KISS is still alive and well. What a great journey it has been so far. This picture was taken in 1997 in Hamburg, just minutes before the show. The guy next to Gene is me. The young boy is my son. His name is Gene. He is 20 years old today. And he plays bass. True!!! See you in Berlin!
