WEIRD THINGS PEOPLE DO WITH MONEY
Money talks -- and sometimes it carries an extra message. Americans regularly deface currency to tout an interest group, register a protest or just laud a rock band. Kiss is one of the world's most successful rock bands, with at least 3,000 licensed products. It has pitched such things as Kiss Kondoms, Kiss Kaskets (really) and the Kiss Visa card. The band's front man and co-founder, Gene Simmons, claims that Kiss can make $1 million or more a show. Its fans are rabid and have been since the group formed in 1972 in New York.

It's been more than a decade since KISS' last studio album. Eleven years is a decent chunk of time on most scales - but for KISS fans this has seemed an eternity.

Recent solo albums by both Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley helped to ease the pain somewhat, but then also had some KISS fans wondering, 'Well, why not a new KISS album?'

When KISS announced they were to begin working on a new album excitement spread like wildfire through the KISS Army, but there were those who skeptically held the stance that they'd believe it when they saw it - or, in this case, heard it.

Well the wait, the wondering, and the disbelieving is about to come to an end on October 6. Produced by KISS' own Paul Stanley, Sonic Boom is on its way.

The most recent musical products we've had from these guys were Paul Stanley's solo release Live To Win and Gene Simmons' solo album A**h*le. Stanley's was emotion, Simmons' was fun - and now with Sonic Boom those influences bond and yet include so much more.

Sonic Boom is a sexy album packed with good quality songs that insight repeat listening. It's a great blend of old KISS, modern KISS, and even - - - dare it be said? - Some brand spanking new KISS sounds as well.

KISS, in their 35 years, has gone on an amazing journey and has a rich, full history. And some KISS fans are devoted, almost cult-like followers, but then there are some who will vehemently dislike any new release simply because it's not a repeat of Destroyer or KISS (the 1974 self-titled debut release). No one can make everyone happy, but Sonic Boom delivers the goods that most KISS fans will receive quite warmly.

The KISS Army mobilized an especially dedicated battalion to downtown London Saturday morning.

Hundreds of fans lined up outside the John Labatt Centre - including some who stood in line for nearly 12 hours - to get tickets to the legendary rock group's long-awaited return to London next month.

Tickets went on sale at 10 a.m. - and first in line was 44-year-old stock broker Cristina Parker, who arrived outside the JLC at 11:30 p.m. Friday.

"Well, it's KISS," she said, when asked what motivates that kind of commitment. "I've seen them 20 or 30 times.

"I've been part of the KISS army since I was 12 years old. (Singer/guitarist) Paul Stanley was my first crush - Starchild, I love him."

Casablanca Records, the label whose roster included Kiss, Angel, Parliament, Donna Summer and The Village People, is celebrating its 35th anniversary this year. Come inside to hear what Paul Stanley has to say about the legendary company...

Casablanca was formed in 1973 by Neil Bogart, but didn't release its first full-length album until Kiss's debut on February 18, 1974.

Speaking exclusively to Classic Rock, rhythm guitarist/vocalist Paul Stanley reflected on the years Kiss spent as probably the most important band on Casablanca's roster.

Classic Rock: It's Casablanca's 35th birthday this year. Do you mourn the demise of the iconic record company?

Paul Stanley: "I mourn the demise of iconic record companies because they nurtured bands and nurtured artists. When record companies were run by people who loved music they stood behind the acts. It wasn't unusual for a record company to expect two or three albums to come out before artist would break. That was the dedication they had, because they loved the music. The days of that are over and long gone.

PAUL STANLEY ON OSHAWA
BY Dan Robson

KISS fans in Oshawa were outraged earlier this week when they heard the city was not one of the band's dates on its current tour.

Oshawa had won an online voting competition to determine whose hometown would be included in the band's "Kiss Alive 35" tour.

Paul Stanley was understanding...

"The media was carrying the dissent and upset feeling of the fans. They weren't creating anything, they were reporting it. Don't blame the messenger."

Stanley said a "comedy of errors" led to Oshawa being left off the tour when an incomplete schedule was announced.

Stanley said Oshawa was actually going to be on next leg of the tour, which hadn't been announced yet. The outcry from Oshawa's KISS fans compelled the band to make a change and play there sooner.

"Oct. 7 was not originally deemed the day we were playing Oshawa," Stanley said. But "to sooth everybody's hurt feelings and concerns" KISS decided to launch their new album in the KISS-loving city.

"The fans were understandably upset, but no harm meant, and certainly no slight," Stanley said. "It was clearly announced that Oshawa was the number one city, so it would be insanity to not play it."
