Press Pass ready to unleash Legends of KISS set

Press Pass' strong run of trading card sets dedicated to the music legends KISS isn't even close to a finale.

Up next on the company's set list is Legends of KISS, a 100-card themed set that tells the story of the band through their own words - a set that, when placed in pages, tells the story from card to card.


The set will include the first cards to bearing both a concert-worn memorabilia swatch and an autograph - KISS Kuts - while there will be another helping of autograph cards to lick, err, pick up.

Also new will be a six-card set of pop-up cards as well as a few parallel sets - First Edition (limited to 25) as well as cyan, magenta, yellow and black Proof Edition Parallels.

Legend of KISS is set to arrive on April 21.

BY Alissa Walker

This exclusive peek of Dr. Pepper's first-ever Super Bowl spot features the painted faces of rock band Kiss as well as their diminutive doppelgangers, MiniKiss. Agency Deutsch wanted to emphasize Dr. Pepper's "little kiss" of cherry. According to Dr. Pepper, the bands have met before, but this was their first offical performance.

Look for the full spot at the two-minute warning, just before halftime.

THIS DAY IN TORY 1995
On this day in KISStory - February 3, 1995, KISS held their first ever "official" KISS Convention at the Hyatt Hotel in Perth, Australia.

The official KISS conventions were all-day events, featuring displays of vintage Kiss stage outfits, instruments, and memorabilia, performances by Kiss cover bands, and dealers selling Kiss merchandise from every stage of the band's career. Kiss appeared live at the conventions, conducted question and answer sessions, signed autographs and performed a two-hour acoustic set composed mostly of spontaneous fan requests.

CALLING DR. LOVE: INVADES THE SUPER BOWL


Only ET is behind the scenes with legendary rockers Kiss on their first-ever Dr. Pepper Super Bowl commercial -- featuring Mini Kiss!

"The basic premise of this is I'm Dr. Love -- you're not," Gene Simmons tells ET. "Dr. Love is here to make you all feel better, girls."

Airing during the second quarter of the big game this Sunday, the ad features the return of Gene as Dr. Love along with lead singer Paul Stanley and the rest of the Kiss line-up rocking onstage with Mini Kiss, extolling the virtues of Dr. Pepper Cherry's uniquely smooth taste.

"It's a little hint of Kiss with a little hint of cherry," says Paul in pitchman mode.

"It's always the sincerest form of flattery," says Gene of the band's pint-sized counterparts. "Mini Kiss has everything that we have -- perhaps not the same size, but then size isn't important... Yes, it is important, isn't it?"

"That's right, and they work for half price," adds Paul. "Their songs are shorter."

Native New Yorker and major Kiss fan Joey Fatale, who plays mini Gene, came up with the idea for his tribute band one day while looking at one of the Kiss albums.

"It just popped in my head, the name Mini Kiss," he explains. "I said this'll be cool - four little people dressed up as Kiss." After their first gig at Studio 54 in Manhattan, they were an overnight success, and the rest is history.

"If it wasn't for Kiss, we wouldn't be here," he says reverently.

Watch ET for more with Kiss!
