Favorite Memories as a KISS Fan

Posted on 01/17/2013
It was 1977 when I became a KISS fan. I bought the album, "Destroyer," and after a little disagreement with my mom, she let me keep it, and I was hooked for life. The four masked men just mesmerized me. It was the music that captivated me, and it still does after being a fan for 36 happy years. I have had so many memories of being a KISS fan. One of my favorites is when in 1997, I bought a very cute beagle puppy, and named him after my favorite KISS member, Ace Frehley (photo of me and pup, now 15 years old enclosed). He's an awesome dog. My first KISS show was on July 28, 1996 at Madison Square Garden, seeing the original four. Great show. That was first of 46 total KISS shows that I would wind up seeing. I got to do a lot of traveling around the USA, Canada, and Australia. I have even gotten to meet just about everyone who has ever been in the band (except for Eric Carr, RIP) several times over. However, what I have loved the most about KISS is that I have a huge "family," as Paul Stanley has called us. Through the KISS shows, and fan held expos, I have met so many friends, and acquaintences that I don't think I would have if it weren't for KISS. It is the band's uniqueness, and their music that I think has introduced me to people that I would have never met otherwise. Thank you guys for the 40 years of music that you have given to rock and roll, and for the 36 years of enjoymen that you have given to me. Your Fan, Terri Bey Lexington, KY
