How KISS Changed My Life
Posted on 01/23/2013I have been a fan since 1976. I was in 4th grade and was at Wal-Mart with my mom. I saw Destroyer and thought, "Who are these guys?" My mother quickly grabbed me and moved along. Later I was told how they worshiped Satan and was not allowed to listen to their music. My buddy who lived across the street had KISS albums. Every day after school I would go to his house and listen to KISS albums. I had a pretty rough life growing up. Never met my father, my step father at the time was some what abusive, was sexually abused, my mother and I never got along, and ultimately during my 8th grade year I moved in with my grandparents. Through all of my struggles the one thing that kept me going was KISS. Their message of believing in one's self and never giving up on your dreams inspires me to this day. I have accomplished so much and have a great family, job, and life...and I owe it to KISS. Thank you to all the original and current members of KISS. You have touched more people than you will ever know.
