ERIC CELEBRATES WITH THE ARMY!
Over a thousand members of the KISS ARMY attended the KISS Coffeehouse's 3rd anniversary celebration in Myrtle Beach on Saturday! Fans from all over the US and Canada came out to meet KISS drummer Eric Singer. Eric was absolutely great, signing autographs and taking photos for almost eight hours. It was so obvious that he was having as much fun meeting the fans as they were meeting him!

Windsor teen Shawn Kinghorn may have been too injured to see Kiss blow away Sarnia's Bayfest, but that didn't stop his rock superheroes from acknowledging their fallen fan.

On Friday, representatives of Hotel-Dieu Grace Hospital presented Kinghorn with a KISS-approved compensation package: four Kiss T-shirts, a hooded Kiss sweater and an official Kiss program autographed by Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer.

"It makes me feel special," said Kinghorn, 13. "Because they don't usually do this for, like, anybody."

The KISS Coffeehouse in Myrtle Beach celebrated its third anniversary Saturday. The "all day and night rock 'n' roll party" featured an appearance by KISS drummer the Catman Eric Singer in honor of the coffeehouse's continued success.

"You would've thought the band designed [the KISS Coffeehouse] - that's how good he did it," Singer said during a phone interview in talking about creator and owner Brian Galvin. "Some people understand the KISS mentality and how the band wants to be presented, and this guy was the original one who came up with the concept and had it built. And he did a super job."

For 11 years now, Sarnia Ontario has played host to an ever-growing music festival known as Rogers Bayfest. Split over two weekends, they celebrated last year as their 10th anniversary by shaking up the city with hit acts like Bon Jovi and Motley Crue. With two legendary bands headlining last year, the biggest question for the current 11th year ended up being how on earth the Bayfest organizers would top such a show. The answer to that question... KISS!

Being able to cover this year's event was something special to me as I grew up in Sarnia. Bayfest began long after I moved away, yet none of my return trips ever coincided with the festival. Finally my timing was spot-on and I managed to take in the most incredible show of my life to date.

FATHER & SON BOND WITH
Dear KISS,

On Tuesday night, my 7-year-old son and I traveled 4 1/2 hours from Sacramento to see KISS in Paso Robles. I was about my son's age when the "Love Gun" tour came to San Francisco, but my parents wouldn't let me go. My son is a huge KISS fan and I didn't want to deny him this opportunity. We really had a blast in Paso Robles, cheering and singing along to our favorite KISS songs and just having a blast. I will always cherish this show and I'm sure my son will, too. Thanks KISS for rocking hard and creating great memories for the parents and kids out there. Rock on!

Thanks for a great father-son adventure!

Chris and Diego

YOU'RE GONNA DIG THE NEW ALBUM!
The editor of Guitar Player Magazine wrote the following on the publication's Facebook page:

"Heard 5 songs. If you dig KISS, you're gonna dig this new album. Paul sings his ass off. Eric plays some amazingly powerful drums. Gene was finally made to play all of his bass parts (apparently, in the past, if someone had a cool bass idea, he let them play it), and he DOES have a pretty driving sound. Finally, Paul and Tommy's guitars sound HUGE -- with some fab riffs and '70s-style solos."

ROCKED PASO ROBLES!
Report & Photo by Bret Moiseff for KISSONLINE.

KISS rocked Paso Robles, California Tuesday night, blowing the place up just as Paul had promised. Kids and parents alike were in KISS make-up, and the enthusiastic crowd seemed to love the show from start to finish. Starting with Deuce, and working their way through the Alive 35 setlist, the band switched gears to finish with some other classics, including Love Gun and Detroit Rock City. Paul spoke about the new album and tour coming this fall! KISS ended the concert with a full fireworks spectacular. After the show, the merchandise booths were packed with fans, some of whom traveled from around the world for this one-off California show!

ANDREA'S BIRTHDAY
Hi KISS!

I want to share with you this picture. It is from my daughter, Andrea's third birthday party! We all had our faces painted and enjoyed some of your music. My 3 year old became a fan since last April when you came to perform in Peru and I played some DVDs before going to the concert.

I went so see you with my wife and my brothers and it was AWESOME! Little Andrea didn't have the chance to see you on stage and keeps asking when will she be able to see play. She asks me to play "I Was Made For Lovin' You","Sure Know Something","Shout it Out Loud", and "Deuce", this last one is not only a sing along but a dance along! We all dance together as you do on stage.

I hope that you can come back soon, so I can take Andrea this time!

Best,
Jose Silva - Kima, Peru

COOPER'S A FAN!
Hi KISS!

We just saw KISS rock the capital here in Ottawa, Canada and it was an amazing show!! That night my 2 1/2 year old son Cooper became a Jr. KISS ARMY member and wanted to send his thanks for such a great show with this pic! He has memorized all the band member names and can sing a few lines of 'Lick it up' already. I think its time to burn down the disney room and make it a KISS room!!Thanks again guys and ROCK ON!!!
