GENE SIMMONS PLAQUE ENGRAVED ON BERLIN'S BRIDGE OF HEARTS

My thanks to the Matt Lamb German Foundation and, in particular, Sheila Lamb, who is carrying on her father’s work of using the legacy of his art as a way to enrich and inspire the lives of children around the world.

I was honored to accompany Miss Lamb and her wonderful team to Berlin, where the Matt Lamb Umbrellas For Peace was in full swing. The children were painting on the umbrellas and celebrating the message of peace and understanding.

I was caught somewhat off-guard when officials awarded me the Bridge Of Hearts Award. Certainly undeserved, but an honor nonetheless.

At the end of the day, my lasting memories were of the smiling faces of the children.

There was even a children’s KISS Tribute Band. Amazing.

My thanks to all.

The Starchild talks us through some of the key songs in his glittering career…

As KISS prepare to close this year's Download Festival, we ask Paul Stanley about some of the band's songs, starting with...

Rock and Roll All Nite
Rock and Roll All Nite is astounding, in that every night we play it, it brings on a euphoria and a feeling of abandon in the crowd, everything that was it supposed to do. It was meant to be a rock anthem that would sum up the philosophy and common point of view between Kiss and our fans. I remember sitting with my guitar in my hotel room in what was then the Continental Hyatt House, on Sunset in LA, and trying to figure out how to encapsulate what Kiss is about and what our fans are about, and very quickly I came up with the melody, the chords, and the way the lyric and hook would repeat. Gene had a song called Drive Me Wild and I basically took his verse and put it to my chorus, and that is Rock and Roll All Nite.

THIS DAY IN KISSTORY 1977

On this day in KISSTORY - May 26, 1977, KISS announce their debut KISS Marvel Comic book and deposit their own blood in the comic book ink at the Marvel printing plant.

Gene recalled the event:

As the KISS comic book project moved along, someone came up with the idea of putting real blood in the ink. It wasn't me - maybe it was Bill Aucoin. We got in the DC3, one of those big prop planes, and flew up to Buffalo to Marvel's printing plant, where they pour the ink and make comic books. A notary public actually witnessed the blood being drawn.
