My (almost) 40 years with KISS!
Posted on 01/18/2013Rewind...a little further...late 1977/early 1978, a woman is driving west on Buhne Street in Eureka, Ca. with her three-and-a-half-year-old son. Rather than her usual Beach Boys 8-track, she has the radio on(probably KXGO). "Hard Luck Woman" comes on and the boy is set on a path which he can never stray from. Fast-forward to 1990...the boy, now 16, goes to his first concert, KISS' "Hot In The Shade" tour. At 24, the boy his his first child child, Eric, named after his favorite drummer. 10 years later..."Sonic Boom"...Eric attends his first concert with that little boy from 1978. In August 2012, the boy witnesses the best KISS show he's seen in 20 years, and looks forward to The "Monster" tour in 2013. Thank you, KISS for warping me for life! Happy Birthday.
