BEST ALBUM IN A LONG TIME!
TOMMY QUOTE FROM 'GUITARRA TOTAL'

Here's a quote from Tommy Thayer's recent 'Guitarra Total' Magazine cover story:

'It's a great tune, there is something that people missed, and that's I am a good singer, I am a good vocalist. I have much experience, but I've never been a solo singer. My voice works well on that and I think people will be surprised. The band is working on a song called 'Rotten To The Core' but it is not the old one. We are recording all new songs. All four of us are involved. It will be the best KISS album in a long time. For what concern new possible costumes for the fall tour a decision will be taken soon.'

GENE SIMMONS FAMILY JEWELS REMINDER
GENE SIMMONS FAMILY JEWELS RETURNS SUNDAY

GENE SIMMONS FAMILY JEWELS RETURNS TO A&E FOR AN ALL-NEW SEASON

SEASON FOUR OF THE HIT UNSCRIPTED SERIES PREMIERES SUNDAY, JUNE 7 AT 10 PM ET/PT WITH A SPECIAL ONE-HOUR EPISODE

Legendary Rock God multi-hyphenate Gene Simmons and his unconventional family are back and better than ever for an all-new season of A&E s hit unscripted series 'Gene Simmons Family Jewels' premiering with a special one-hour episode on Sunday, June 7th at 10:00 PM ET/PT. The 15-episode season kicks off with Sophie s sweet sixteen party, giving viewers an all access pass to the milestone celebration. When a case of sibling rivalry spirals out of control, Nick pulls on dad's heartstrings and his sense of theatrics to escalate the low key party she wanted into the blowout of the century, all to the dismay of shy Sophie.

In addition to Sophie s sweet sixteen, the new season will give viewers a behind the scenes look at the entire family s many adventures. From Gene s appearance on 'Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?,' to Gene filming a Japanese monster flick, to Shannon preparing for a role in a roller derby exploitation film, to Nick getting his own apartment, to Sophie fending off ill-intentioned teenaged boys, viewers will follow the Simmons-Tweed clan as they set out to prove, yet again, why they are the most non-traditional, traditional family in America.

KOL FAN LETTER
RARE KISS 7' RECORD

Hi KISS & the KISS ARMY!

My name is Rodrigo Acuna and I'm a Mexican KISS Collector since 1980. I have 800 different KISS items, but today was one of the greatest days of my life collecting KISS stuff! For a long time ago I was looking for this record, it is one of the most rare 7' records printed in Mexico - it is a extremely rare promotional Rock and Roll Over label and disc with: Side A 'I Was Made For Lovin' You' / 'Nothing To Lose' & Side B 'Let Me Go Rock And Roll' / 'Detroit Rock City'.

I wanted to share this with all of you because it is must in all KISS collections. From the early 70`s, almost 30 years old.

Regards from Mexico, Rodrigo Acuna

OSHAWA RE-PINS DREAMS ON KISS!

Written by John Intini

Economically besieged Oshawa has found something it can re-pin its dreams on: KISS

As the auto industry continues its painful collapse, Oshawa, Ont., has become pretty desperate these days for a little good news. So in April, urged on by councillor Robert Lutczyk, the city endorsed a plan—peculiar even by municipal government standards—aimed at winning a contest hosted by KISS. The rock legends had called on fans to determine, via online voting, the route Gene Simmons and the boys would take on tour this fall. At the time, Oshawa was ranked 143rd as a potential stop. Suddenly, getting the city...

PAUL'S MUSIC HELPS FAN RECOVER

By Tony Krickl

Lifelong Claremont resident Tony Banks, 48, has almost fully recovered from a serious head injury that nearly ended his life 2 years ago.

While attending his daughter Taylor's volleyball match on May 12, 2007, Mr. Banks fell off the bleachers while retrieving volleyballs. He dropped about 30 feet and hit his head on a nearby cement wall. He immediately fell unconscious and spent weeks in the Intensive Care Unit, where doctors performed multiple surgeries and removed a portion of his front temporal lobe.

During a 3-week coma, Mr. Banks explained the sensation of being stuck in a crypt made of ice...
