WAY TO GO NICHOLAS & BRIAN!
Father & Son KISS Fan's donate prices winnings to high school's Arts and Music Scholarship

Hey KISS!

My son, Nicholas, and I were recently invited to the evening news on NBC Cleveland WKYC to share our story about winning the KISS t-shirt contest! We talked about how we were fortunate enough to meet the band, get autographs and see KISS live front row center! We then shared with TV host, Jim Donovan, about donating the $1000 cash prize to our local high school's Arts and Music Scholarship. Nick and I decided that if we won, meeting KISS and seeing the show would be plenty for us. As it turns out, donating the cash prize was a pretty cool feeling as well!

Thanks for the AWESOME experience!

THIS DAY IN TORY 1974
KISS PLAYED ALASKA FOR FIRST TIME

On this day in KISSTORY - June 2, 1974 KISS played Anchorage, Alaska on their first tour in support of the album, KISS. The band performed with Savoy Brown at the Sundowner Drive-In Theatre. This was KISS' only concert in Alaska until they returned over twenty five years later on January 3, 2000.

Paul recalls the visit to Alaska:

"It was surreal to get to Alaska expecting blizzards and polar bears, only to find that with heaters near our boots all over the stage, we would be playing outside! Every time we went too close to the heaters, our guitars went completely out of tune! It was cold out there!

RETIREMENT WITH A !
Dear KISS,

May 2nd, 2014 marked a significant milestone in my life. Having served in the US Air Force for 22 years, I retired from active duty. The folks who I worked with know how much I have always loved the band and the music, so they decided to add some subtle KISS highlights which you will see in the attached photo.

What made the experience as much fun was, after the standard playing of the Air Force song, my family an dI walked out to the roaring intro to "Detroit Rock City." As a side note - I would also like to personally thank Gene Simmons. One of my co-workers sang the National Anthem with him at one of the NFL games in London this year, and he graciously signed my vinyl copy of Rock & Roll Over. Thank you so much!

Cheers!

Brian Hiatt / Rolling Stone

Rolling Stone's first-ever Kiss cover story mostly focused on the original lineup of the band: Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, Ace Frehley and Peter Criss. The Rock and Hall of Fame also chose to induct only those members – a decision Simmons and Stanley made quite clear that they opposed. They invited current Kiss guitarist Tommy Thayer, current drummer Eric Singer and former guitarist Bruce Kulick (who played in the band from 1984 to 1995) to join them at their table for the April 10th ceremony, and thanked them from the stage for their contributions. In that spirit, here are Kisstory-spanning conversations with each of those musicians, culled from the cover-story transcripts.

Tommy Thayer

When Eric Carr and Vinnie Vincent wore makeup in Kiss, they had new characters. Did you have any discomfort about simply wearing Ace's makeup?
No, first of all, I didn't have any input on that. That was a decision that those guys made. There was not even a conversation about it, because I think it was so obvious, that they weren't going to introduce new characters 30 years into the band. I never thought that there should be some new designs or something. I thought that would have been ridiculous. And the only thing is, you've got a lot of push-back from some of the diehards. And that's understandable. Hey, you know, if you lived in the Seventies and Kiss was your favorite band, and that's what you grew up with, and suddenly there's another guy wearing that makeup, I can understand how some people, it might not have appealed to them as much. But as time as gone by, a lot of people have changed their mind.

You can imagine what Ace has to say.
He probably wouldn't agree with that, would he?
