PAUL STANLEY DISPLAYS ARTISTIC SIDE

By JOHN ROGERS, Associated Press Writer

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. – When it comes to glam rock stars, Paul Stanley always could wield that makeup brush with the best of them.

So maybe it shouldn't have come as a surprise that the Kiss guitarist, first introduced to the world with his face covered in white makeup, his lips painted bright red, a dark star over his right eye, would someday set aside that guitar long enough to pour his soul into oil on canvas.

Still, Stanley says he was the most surprised guy on the planet when he, an art-class washout from New York City's High School of Music and Art, suddenly began...

KISS FAN RAISES $$$ FOR SPECIAL OLYMPICS

Hello KISS!

Last weekend I participated - dressed as Paul - in the Special Olympics Polar Bear Plunge in Columbus, Ohio. Through the generosity of my friends, I was able to rasie $550 for the cause AND I won best individual costume (before I jumped into a pool of freezing water).

I think helping others is part of what the KISS Army stands for!

Rock On!

LEGENDARY ROCKERS LIFT AILING FAN'S SPIRITS

By William Croyle

NEWPORT, KY - The phone rang Wednesday afternoon in Christopher 'Critter' Smith's room at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center. His mom had just stepped out for a moment, so he answered it.

'Critter, it's Paul Stanley,' the caller said. Stanley is the lead singer for KISS, Critter's favorite rock band.

'At first, I thought it was just my dad messing with me,' Critter said.

It really was Stanley.

The band had been alerted about Critter by a fan after an article was published March 2 in The Enquirer. The article talked about the 11-year-old's battle with leukemia...

On March 12, 1996, the KISS MTV Unplugged CD and VHS Video were released in the US. KISS MTV Unplugged was recorded August 9, 1995 at Sony Music Studios in New York City.

All six members close out the CD/VHS with 'Nothin' To Lose' and 'Rock and Roll All Nite'. MTV originally broadcast KISS Unplugged on October 31, 1995.

Comment from Paul on Unplugged:

'Unplugged was a chance for us to celebrate the musical history of the band by stripping, some great songs from different points in our history, down to the bare essence of what makes them great.'

TRACK LISTING:

Comin' Home / Plaster Caster / Goin' Blind / Do You Love Me / Domino / Got To Choose / Sure Know Something / A World Without Heroes / Rock Bottom / See You Tonight / I Still Love It / Every Time I Look At You / 2000 Man / Beth / Nothin' To Lose / Rock and Roll All Nite
