Here is a living testament for me to KISS. The band made a difference in my life. My custom airbrushed Ibanez RGT42DXBP features a KISS Dynasty motif. Dynasty is my favorite recording from the band. This artwork was done by JEFF RICH of RCA GUITARS, who did more than an amazing job for me. I feel lucky that I found an artist that was able to do this design with such detail.

KISS - thanks for changing my life and for changing the lives of millions of people all over the world!

Here are some excerpts from a recent Deuce News interview with Michael Doret, designer of the classic "Rock N Roll Over" album cover. Michael's latest design, the brand new KISS Album cover will be premiered soon on KISSONLINE!

(DN) I am perfectly aware that such definition is way beyond complete as You are among the best designers around and that your art can be seen everywhere, know, we are so next to the D-Day to see the new KISS album title and cover revealed that...

(Michael) I would like more than anything right now to share with you what I did for the new cover. I am very excited about it because I think it is among the very best of my work. But an agreement is an agreement: I gave my word to Paul that I would not reveal anything before the "official" release of information, and I am a man of my word.

Taylor Swift and her band play a hilarious prank on Keith Urban during their concert last night at the Sprint Center on Saturday (August 8) in Kansas City, Missouri.

Hi Gene,

Saturday night on our last night opening for Keith Urban, we played a prank on him. During his hit song, "Kiss a Girl", Taylor (Ace), myself (Gene), Amos (Paul), and Grant (Peter) came out in full KISS regalia. Our backup singers Caitlin and Liz along with our FOH engineer Russell were dressed up as Hershey kisses and tossed them out into the crowd. It was a lot of fun and it was captured on this video from YouTube. Thought you might enjoy it.

P.S. Thanks again for the birthday call in May!

Hot off the success of the sold-out debut KISS Ikons trading card set from Press Pass, collectors can now enjoy 360 degrees of the Hottest Band in the World. The second KISS release from Press Pass contains a 90-card base set, 4 insert sets and multiple parallel series to chase. A huge part of what makes KISS larger than life is their theatrical and visual show, and Press Pass delivers with a dazzling dip into the bombastic KISSnation.

This time around they’ve developed some stunning acetate and lenticular inserts collections and they included signatures from all four original members. You could find a single card containing the autographs of Gene, Paul, Ace and Peter. There are also memorabilia cards of not only Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley, but beloved drummer Eric Carr. A box of KISS 360° is priced at $79.00.

To cover the entire career of KISS is quite an undertaking. They’ve been making KISStory since 1973. In 2009 they celebrated the 35th anniversary of their landmark recording KISS Alive! With an appearance on American Idol, the announcement of a new KISS CD and other significant milestones such as the introduction of KISS M&Ms, KISS Mr. Potato Heads and plans to launch another explosive tour, they continue to leave an unparalleled legacy in the world of rock and roll.

Hey Guys!

Just thought I would share this with you. I attended the Ohio State Fair on Saturday night in Columbus, OH and found this huge painting of Gene and Paul on the outside of the Funhouse! Very caught my eye from a distance and it was definitely attracting attention of many other people at the fair.

Can't wait for the new record and tour!

When KISS says they will play anywhere, they mean it! On July 28th, 2009 KISS rocked California once again in support the of Alive 35 World Tour. Jamming for nearly two hours sticking close to the Alive 35 set list. KISS came out with their guns loaded with what seemed to be more pyrotechnics than usual. Maybe to compensate for the fact that, as Paul stated on-stage, couldn't levitate the drum set, fly for Love Gun or come down from the rafters. Some ticket holders were upgraded to better seating due to a pyrotechnics issue. Not bad! The stage was set up in the rodeo arena and most of the floor seating was there on the dirt, as were the cows, seriously. Remember it's a fair and the cows were to the left of the stage, smell and all. Some of those cows had a better vantage point than I did. Remember KISS will play anywhere for their fans and we thank them for that.


Autographed 8 x 10, 2 personal photos with the band, KISS laminate, Alive 35 guitar picks, Mini KISS poster, KISS Tour Book, Alive 35 T-Shirt & $50 coupon for the online KISS store!
