DREAM COME TRUE
Hi KISS!

Growing up in the eighties I never thought I'd see KISS perform in make-up - accomplished! I never thought I'd see the original lineup - accomplished and I definitely never thought I'd be taking my son to see them live - accomplished. I've loved you guys since I was 4 years old and now my 4 year old son got his first live KISS experience last nite in Pittsburgh and loved it!! I don't know how you guys continue to deliver but you do and I loved every minute every year and every lineup it doesn't matter. It's all KISSTORY and I thank you for the memories.

MY NEW AUTOGRAPH TATTOOS
KISS!

I wanted to send you a picture of me getting your signatures inked in after the show in Kansas City. I called ahead of time to Mercy Seat Tattoo when I got my meet & greet. Chris, the tattooist, gladly reopened the shop to do your signatures. He's a huge fan too. I just wanted to say thanks again for signing my back. I'll wear KISS proudly for ever. I can't wait for you to come to St.Louis so I can do another meet & greet. I also gave you all pictures of my KISS tribute bike, I really hope you enjoyed them.

Thanks again for 35 years of Rock n Roll!

Penguins Coaches Enjoy Kiss Concert

By Rob Rossi

Inclement weather prevented the Penguins from gathering Sunday morning at a Waterfront restaurant for their annual holiday party, but head coach Dan Bylsma and his staff still found time to bond. Penguins coaches attended the KISS concert that night at Mellon Arena, though assistant coach Tony Granato joked that they opted against face paint in honor of their favorite band members - front man Paul Stanley for Granato.

MUSIC STUDENT INFLUENCED BY
Hello all!

I just wanted to share with you all a video I recently recorded. It's an all-percussion version of the latest KISS Klassic, "Modern Day Delilah." (I'm a 19-year old college student majoring in music business/communications.) It's got everything from marimbas, xylophones, vibraphones, snare drums, and even timpani piled on there. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I enjoyed recording it (and listening to Sonic Boom!)

I think it only goes to show that contrary to popular belief, KISS can hold their own in musical bearing with the best of them, so thanks for being such a great influence (KISS has always been my favorite group; rather than growing up on Disney or Nickelodeon, I wore out two copies of KISS Meets The Phantom of the Park [maybe that explains the way I am!], and I saw you all when I was six on the reunion tour)!

Keep up the great work and hopefully I'll get to see you all on tour when you come back around to the US (Indiana please!)!

Who needs Chopin & Schubert when you've got Stanley & Simmons?!

Thanks & Happy Holidays!

By Scott Mervis, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Paul Stanley, the best in-between-song screamer in the history of rock 'n' roll, screeched last night, "We've been playing this place for so long -- it feels like church to us!"

OK, synagogue may have made more sense but that's not the point. The point is that when you think of bands that were able to transform the Igloo into some seedy house of hard rock Kiss is somewhere near the top. And the last time they came through this area it was all wrong. They were sent out to the pasture in Burgettstown and forced to open for Aerosmith in the daylight, which is like making Dracula walk on the beach. Last night, on the Kiss Alive 35 Tour, they made it right one last time under the silver dome.
