PAUL'S SOLO DVD
ONE LIVE KISS REVIEW

By Anthony Kuzminski

The overall look of the DVD is spectacular. All too often I tend to find artists taking shortcuts when they put these DVD s out. They often go on the cheap not hiring a competent director, shooting on cheap video over film and documenting their legacy with half-talents. That is not the case here. Its clear Stanley has come to realize the importance of documenting all phases of one s career and he didn t cheap out here. Paul Stanley s One Live KISS DVD features an artist whose hunger still roars when he hits the stage. From the opening thunder of 'Live To Win' to the finale of 'Good Bye', One Live KISS is a document of an underrated musician whose hunger matches those of unproven artists and simultaneously reminding KISS fans why we became hypnotized by their image and music in the first place.

KOL FAN LETTERS

Hello KISS!

With the Rock Band craze my 9 year old son has become a huge Kiss fan. He started listening to your songs in March and since then decided that he would be you in Kiss for Halloween. My husband came pretty close to nailing the make up on his little face. Joseph definitely had a one of a kind look this year in our neighborhood. At least in his age group. It was great.

Sincerely,

Jennifer Vaught Las Vegas, NV

Hi KISS & Fans!

Our boys wanted to dress as their favorite KISS members for Halloween last year. We made their costumes and painted their masks (they don't like face paint). They made the pumpkins by themselves! We all had a blast and they got their pictures taken all night long. They continue to put on their costumes and have shows for us.

Sean (Paul) is 7. Ryan (Gene) is 4. Thanks for letting us post this, we hope you all enjoy!

Greg and Lori Gould

QUOTE FROM SARAH BRIGHTMAN
COMMENTS ON PAUL & KISS

Kiss member Paul Stanley was featured with Brightman on 'I Will Be With You (Where the Lost Ones Go),' a track on her latest studio album, Symphony. She sees a similarity between Kiss' theatrical rock and her own grand approach.

'I needed somebody who had a rock voice that could actually sing the notes,' she said. 'Paul Stanley came to mind obviously because he actually had done a stint in Phantom of the Opera in Canada. To sing that part is very difficult, so I knew he'd have the notes there.

'Kiss does show the dramatic, which is always interesting and fun for people. It's about giving as much as you can to people.'

Ms. Brightman is currently touring the US.

GENE SIMMONS KEYNOTE SPEAKER
GENE KEYNOTE AT BILLBOARD CONFERENCE

KISS co-founder, reality TV star and entrepreneur GENE SIMMONS will be the Keynote Q&A for the 5th Annual Billboard Touring Conference, set for Nov. 19-20 at the Roosevelt Hotel in New York.

Billboard executive director of content and programming for touring and live entertainment Ray Waddell will conduct the Q&A with Simmons on Nov. 20 at the Roosevelt Ballroom. The Q&A will be filmed for an episode of his A&E reality show 'GENE SIMMONS Family Jewels,' currently in its third season.

'GENE SIMMONS' fingerprints are on virtually all segments of the music industry, particularly as it relates to the live music business,' Waddell says. 'We are thrilled to have him on board for our milestone fifth Touring Conference and we know his insight and the 'GENE SIMMONS world view' will be a compelling must-see for our attendees. Buckle up.'

Born in Haifa, Israel, in 1949 and the only child of a Holocaust survivor, Simmons found global fame as the co-founder and bass player for KISS, which got its start in 1972. KISS scored eight top 40 hits in the '70s and was one of the leading hard rock acts of its day.

The band remains a touring, licensing and merchandising powerhouse, with its officially licensed ventures including the KISS Coffeehouse in Myrtle Beach, S.C., the first in a planned chain of franchises; KISS comic books, KISS condoms and Kiss-branded Visa cards.

Now in its fifth year, the Billboard Touring Conference unites today's top touring professionals to discuss the current state of the industry through potent panel topics, provocative discussions, and productive round-tables, as well as networking opportunities with touring industry power players and decision makers.

The conference is capped off by the Billboard Touring Awards on Nov. 20, which honors the concert industry's top artists and professionals based on actual data compiled through the Billboard Boxscore chart.

NEW PAUL STANLEY GUITARS
USA CUSTOM PS5 PREACHER

Paul Stanley USA Custom PS5 Preacher Guitars!

About 6 months ago I began working with Paul and Washburn s Rudy Schlacher, Nick Ellingsworth, Bill Abel and Terry Atkins. The project I came up with was to reach out and find a way to get more organic with the Washburn Paul Stanley Preacher. To get more 'raw while still remaining a fully spec d and classy version of the Preacher.

I also had a goal of possibly getting a USA Washburn Custom Shop Preacher with a street price of just under $2K! That would include hard-shell case and a Certificate of Authenticity signed by Paul!

And I m here today to announce the PS5. A USA Custom Shop Paul Stanley Preacher guitar - exclusive to Boogie Street Guitars!

The guitar has true 'organic feel in that it is completely - OIL FINISHED! Plus - the guitar will have an ALL MAHGAONY body back AND carved top! Plus the neck will made of MAPLE! Again - all with an OIL FINISH!

The guitar is far from a stripped down model! The body has black binding. The hardware is gold including a TonePros bridge and Grover 18-1 tuners with Keystone buttons.

The headstock on the BSG commissioned PS5 run of Preachers is with full art-deco inlay! Just like the PS9200 USA Customs!

The 22 fret fingerboard is Ebony with large Mother of Pearl blocks starting on the 1st fret... spec d just like the PS9200.

The first group of numbered PS5 USA Custom Preachers will have Gold covered Seymour Duncan humbuckers. In the bridge will be a JB humbucker. The neck will have a Pearly Gates humbucker.

We expect these guitars to hit around Decmeber or the first of January and have a street price of UNDER $2K for everything! Now - how about that!

For more information - check out www.BoogieStreet.com or email me at eric@boogiestreet.com or call me directly at 412-716-3150.

FANS HELP FUND RAISER
KOL FAN LETTER

On October 19th, we attended the Melbourne City Romp (in Australia) which is held to help raise funds for Cancer research. It's like a treasure hunt that is done throughout the streets of Melbourne. Everyone was encouraged to dress up, so we decided to wear KISS make-up for the day.

Here's a photo from the event. We had a great day and everybody wanted to take our photo (especially the Japanese tourists!). Clearly the celebrity status of KISS has not waned over the years.
