submit your kiss letter

In Memorium

Posted on 06/24/2016

This was a funeral for my uncle, Scott Gritzmacher. He passed away from a horrific car accident in 2010. He was like an older brother to me and was my main influence to KISS (and rock and roll in general). If you look at the photo closely, there are 4 stuffed KISS characters sitting along with the displayed photos. He was a devoted KISS fan since 1975. I wanted to share this because being a KISS fan is like being in a family. Whenever I hear a classic from Destroyer or Rock and Roll Over I think of my uncle Scott and how we would paint our faces and play the shit out of Air-Guitar and drums. My musical relationship with him grew stronger as the years went by. That is the power of Rock and Roll. That is the power of KISS. Thank you for allowing us to grow up with you. Your music was the soundtrack to Scott's life, as well as mine. God Gave Rock and Roll to us all. God bless you all. God bless Scott. God bless Rock and Roll. God bless KISS.
