GERMAN FANS TURN ON THE NIGHT
During tonight's episode of Germany's "Wetten, Dass..?" ("Wanna Bet?") the show's nightly "bet" asked for 1,500 KISS fans to come to the filming wearing KISS makeup. Could enough fans line up in letter outlines to spell "KISS," shining flashlights upward to create a live KISS logo? KISS later came outside and joined the fans for "God Gave Rock and Roll to You!"

FAN REPORT FROM "WETTEN, DASS" BROADCAST
Hi KISSonline,

Here's my first report form the "Wetten, dass...?" show tonight that aired on German/Swiss television! It was so exciting!

KISS played a medley of "Say Yeah" and "I Was Made for Lovin' You." The crowd in the hall welcomed the band with grandiose, huge and loud applause. People stood up from their seats and paid tribute to these legends of rock. Pyro effects supported the stage presence of the band, and KISS hijacked the audience into another world. At the end, Paul Stanley smashed his guitar. Even after the last note, the audience didn't stop their applause, screaming and singing. What a great standing ovation, great mood and ambiance!

KISS WAS, IS AND WILL BE THE HOTTEST BAND IN THE WORLD! FOREVER!!!!!!

Your KISS friend and fan from Switzerland

ESPN TO AIR PIECE SUNDAY
KISS-TORY IN THE MAKING

ESPN will air a KISS piece during SportsCenter on Sunday at 10 a.m., 6 p.m. and 11 p.m.

It was 1974 at Cadillac High School in Central Michigan, and you could hear a pin drop in the way-too-tight locker room before football games. That's when an enterprising assistant coach named Jim Neff had an idea -- why not rev up the defense by playing a little pregame rock 'n' roll? Like, for example, KISS? When the bold plan led to a big winning streak and a conference title, Neff and the band he loved hatched a daring plan to bring KISS to Cadillac's 1975 Homecoming. Chris Connelly looks back at two outrageous days in the history of high school football.

KISS AT HIGH SCHOOL HOME COMING

KISS!

At Wilmot Union High School, during homecoming week, our students had to dress as their favorite rock star/group. Their very own principal, being the #1 Kiss fan in the history of Wilmot Union High School and maybe the whole world, poses with a couple of our best dressed Kiss fans!

Thanks,
Deb Border

ARRIVES IN GERMANY
Hard-rock superstars KISS did not travel by stretch limousine or even private jet when they arrived in Frankfurt -- instead taking a regular Deutsche Bahn train from Erfurt for their network television performance on "Wetten, Dass..?"

KISS had "a compartment reserved directly behind the driver," concert organizer Ossy Hoppe stated at a press conference in Frankfurt. He added that the American musical legends are very straightforward, stating, "There were no special requests." The choice of transport was due to logistical reasons: "On Friday afternoon, we'd need four hours on highway; by train, we'd be there in a good two hours."

Kiss guitarist and vocalist Paul Stanley said, "Sometimes we see a little of the landscape this way." When initially approached on the train, he joked: "We've already purchased the train!"

Kiss will be on German television Saturday for the first time in ten years in the German TV. "We are pleased to be here," said singer Gene Simmons (60).

In May and June, KISS will return for concerts in Germany: Leipzig (21.5.), Berlin (26.5.), Hamburg (31.5.) Oberhausen (1.6.) Festivals Rock am Ring and Rock im Park (3 to 5.6 .)

BEST DAY AT WORK EVER COURTESY OF !
Dear KISS & the KISS Army,

Thanks to my love of KISS I managed to score the best day of work ever... on release of a guitar based video game I casually suggested demo-ing the product to customers dressed as a rockstar. My manager jumped at the idea and I got to spend the entire day as Paul Stanley leathered UP for some guitar action!

See you in London!

IS EVERYWHERE!
There's a nice article on KISS in the latest issue of the Italian ROCK STAR Magazine. The story is by Fabio Mainardi of the KISS Fan site Deuce News.

Quote from the issue: "This is the best KISS lineup since the reunion and this is the best live act since AliveII, period! Someone may claim no Ace or Peter are in the fold, but I'd tell you: leave home nostalgia and see you all on May 18th in Milan, you will be boomed away!!!

Here's an excerpt from a recent article in Britain's Loaded Magazine on spending a night on the road with KISS:

Loaded Joins KISS
By Matt Allen
Photos by Picture Bat

Loaded is sitting comfortably backstage at the American Airlines EnormoDome in downtown Dallas, with more slop on our face than Amy Winehouse preparing for a night on the pop. We look bloody stupid. But we don't care, because tonight we've been invited on tour with legendary US rockers, KISS -- the fire-breathing, firework-exploding, leather-clad, heavy metal four piece with more hits than Holly Sampson's homepage, post-Tiger Woods.

Heavy Metal Firegods

The reason for our arrival on the band's stadium-packed Texan party tonight is to revel in their longevity as metal's craziest animals. Formed in New York City in the early 70s, KISS are an unbelievable 35 years old. Their career has straddled hard rock, metal and disco, and they've flogged over 100 million records -- including hit singles "Crazy, Crazy Nights," "I Was Made for Lovin' You." Even their song "Love Gun" went on to provide the name for another inspirational British group, the Sex Pistols.

This heavyweight chart success is only half the story, however. For over three decades, KISS have been metal's premier live band with a stage show that comprises pyrotechnics, blood bags and ludicrous, high-wire acrobatics -- it's estimated their tour overheads come in at a whopping $1m dollars a week.
