KISS Army marches on: Founder of fan club recalls its origins, follows band for 35 years

By Mary Colurso

Bill Starkey doesn't paint his face, wear studded platforms or spit fake blood.

At age 52, he is unlikely to rock and roll all night, or party every day.

Yet inside this Indianapolis elementary-school teacher, there's a man who feels a deep and abiding kinship with KISS.

He's been a fan of the hard-rock band for 35 years, ever since Starkey heard the first blasts of "Deuce" coming from four glam-slam newcomers at Roberts Stadium in Evansville, Ind.

Starkey, then 18, was blown away by the sound and fury of this unknown group - for the record, it was Dec. 8, 1974, and KISS was the opening act for ZZ Top - and he vowed to spread the word to all his friends.

KISS at BankAtlantic Center, Sunrise

By John Hood

From the number of kids running around the BankAtlantic Center at Kiss' show last night, many replete with full make-up, it's apparent that one need not be of a certain age to appreciate the hard rock demigods -- you just have to feel it. Oh, I'm not talkin' about feeling 30 or 40 or 50 or more. I'm talkin' about feeling like a 10-year-old. And with Kiss, you could be bridging the century mark and still feel as if you were in fifth grade.

And I'll tell you right now: there is absolutely nothing wrong with that at all. In fact, I'd argue that it's a damn good thing indeed. And if more folks would let loose their inner child every once in awhile, this wild world would be a much better place.

Of course that would entail Kiss never coming off the road. But hey, if the recently-anointed Rock and Roll Hall of Famers can make it to "Alive 35" who's to say they can't keep it up in perpetuity? And so long as Kiss keeps knocking 'em outta the arena as they did at BankAtlantic last night, everybody's inner child will be running freely for some time to come.

PAINTED LORDS OF ROCK 'N' ROLL WOW NEW YORK
KISS - MADISON SQUARE GARDEN, NY
10.10.09
KKKK

By Daniel Lukes

There's a moment tonight when Paul Stanley begins to strum Led Zeppelin's Stairway To Heaven, before shuddering and launching into KISS' own Black Diamond. KISS May never receive the critical accolades heaped upon Led Zeppelin, but unlike Led Zeppelin, they are still a living, (fire) breathing, strutting, storming rock band with plenty of life left in them.

One thing you notice approaching midtown Manhattan's Madison Square Garden are the children made up like KISS, holding hands with their parents. In America, KISS are a band who cross and bring together generations, and tonight's filled arena is full of families."This is KISS in KISS country," yells Paul, the star of the show.

Bassist/vocalist Gene Simmons, the public face of KISS, is certainly a riot tonight. His blood-spattered tongue waggling, fire-breathing, demonic strutting is straight out of a comic book. And he even flies up to the roof! But it's Paul's tireless preening, theatrical rabble-rousing and all-around outrageous hilarity that make the night.

KISS have so many hits they can't possibly make everyone happy. Nonetheless, high points include Love Gun, during which Paul sails on a trapeze to a stage in the middle of the crowd. And let's not forget the fireworks, flames, rising platforms shooting smoke, and guitar smashing. "Are you getting what you came for?" he yells.

Yes, sir, we certainly are.
