GENE AXE GUITAR
FOR GUITAR HERO & ROCK BAND

If you re a Guitar Hero or Rock Band diehard, then this is an accessory you just can t live without. I mean, look at it! The Gene Simmons Axe Guitar is in the shape of a battle axe and just screams awesome.

This guitar controller features all sorts of cool additions like an analog whammy bar and super responsive frets. But most of all, this thing is cool looking and isn t that the whole point? And I guess it makes fake guitar-playing easier, too.

The Gene Simmons Axe Guitar works with both Guitar Hero and Rock Band, making it the perfect accompaniment for those of you that are equal-opportunity rock-outers. It seems to be an official Simmons product. So, if you love KISS and rock games, this is the perfect accessory.

PODt FROM COFFEEHOUSE
INTERVIEW WITH TOMMY

In this installment, we celebrate 2 milestones: the 2nd anniversary of the KISS Coffeehouse AND our 10th show here at PodKISSt!!!

Back in August, we were invited to attend the festivities at the Coffeehouse, but neither James nor Ken nor I could make it. Fortunately, our correspondents Geoff and Mike traveled long distances through ominous weather and came through like the champs they are! Surely, they are among the highest-ranking officers in the KISS Army!

Once there, Geoff and Mike were given the V.I.P. treatment, with unfettered access to the sights and sounds of this KISStoric event.

They interviewed fans, chatted with well-known members of the KISS camp, and met the maker of the new KISS ketchup! Best of all, they scored an exclusive interview with none other than current KISS lead guitarist Tommy Thayer!

Tommy could not have been nicer! He took the time to answer our many questions, and provided us with some very unique and exciting insights into the KISS world!

We re already hard at work on PodKISSts 11 and 12, and we re so glad you ve enjoyed what we ve had to offer. BIG thanks to everyone who downloads the shows, to Ken for his great artwork, to Mike and Geoff for being superfans, and to Tommy Thayer for his time and attention!

So join us down at the KISS Coffeehouse, and get ready for some great surprises!

THANKS ERIC
KOL FAN LETTER

Hi KISS & the KISS ARMY!

I have to send out a big thanks to the staff at the Long & McQuade in Halifax, NS for being rather awesome in hosting the signing with Eric on October 17th!!!! These guys know how to do things to make the fans (and Eric) feel welcome!

Upon hearing about this event with Eric, I knew my son and I had to be there as we are both huge fans. As usual, Eric was in great spirits, signing most everything put in front of him and had the crowd's full attention sharing stories about playing with KISS. Thank you again for making a great afternoon unforgettable for everyone there!

I was talking to some of the staff there, and was told that of all the signings over the years they do - this was by far, the most civilized, coolest one yet! They've had other guitarists and musicians come in, some drunk, some not, and some just being down right rude - but Eric, and the fans that showed up - was by far the best, a true class act. It just goes to show how great Eric and the KISS army really is!

Your fans in Halifax, Heather and Matt

MY BIKE
KOL FAN LETTER

Hi KISS,

Just wanted to send in some photo's of my bike which is a Yamaha 1600 roadstar, over the past 8 years I have had several designs all KISS related with this one being done recently by Pagans Custom Designs in Melbourne Australia.

I have been a KISS man since 1973 and like many others have rooms dedicated to the Greatest Band on earth. Have and will alway's admire the way they have conquered the world with great music, bombastic stage shows and a real desire to entertain everyone who attends their concerts.

I have briefly met all 4 members over the years and found them to be down to earth and willing to talk.. Gene has that certain amount of arrogance which is what I love about him...he is the man, Paul just so much to admire a true Rock Star, love your paintings!!

Eric and Tommy great at what you do and we are all thankful that you have helped make this band what it is.

Can't wait for your next trip Down Under!!!

Warren Melbourne, Australia

IKONS
IN STORE NOW

KISS. Four musicians. Four characters. Four icons ("IKONS" in KISS speak)-the Demon, the Star Child, Space Ace, and the Cat Man. Today, the KISS juggernaut shows no signs of slowing down as the KISS Army marches on with a new generation. Now fans can celebrate 35 years of "The Hottest Band in the World" with IKONS (Mercury/UMe), released today, October 21, 2008, a four-CD box set with each disc specifically dedicated to showcasing the lead vocal performances of one of the original KISS members-with half of the 56 selections appearing on a compilation for the first time.

IKONS, conceived by a fan for the fans, spotlights each "ikonic" founding member-Gene Simmons (the Demon), Paul Stanley (the Star Child), Ace Frehley (Space Ace), and Peter Criss (the Cat Man)-on separate discs within the box set. No other band has been able to showcase members individually like this. Not only do these artists play their instruments with fierce intensity, but they each can stand in front of a microphone and sing. With IKONS, their four separate characters allow listeners a choice of favorites and a choice of attitude.

IKONS brings together almost four hours of rockin' KISS music with 14 songs per disc. Included are the original recordings of the band's biggest hits and fan favorites spanning their career from "Strutter," "Deuce" and "C'mon And Love Me" to "Rock And Roll All Nite," "Beth," "Detroit Rock City" and "I Was Made For Lovin' You." Of the 56 songs included, 28 make their debut on a KISS collection. Among them are "Love 'Em & Leave 'Em," "All American Man," "2000 Man" and "Hooligan." The deluxe packaging features a 24-page booklet.

MTV LATIN MUSIC AWARDS
AWARD IS GENE'S TONGUE

Just got back from Mexico, where I was the honored guest of the MTV Latin American 2008 Awards. Hectic and fun.

You'll see more news soon, but I was surprised to find out that the actual AWARD of the MTV Latin American event is...MY TONGUE!!!.

Yep. The Academy Awards have their Oscar. The People's Choice Awards has their Crystal Award...and MTV Latin America has...my tongue. It was a hoot seeing the various artists receiving my tongue (...). Metallica played and were in great form. Jared Leto and his Mars guys sat nearby (You're welcome, Jared!!!).

HALLOWEEN
KOL FAN LETTER

Hi Gene,

I am a big fan of Kiss and Gene Simmons Family Jewels. I am 9 years old and live in Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada. I just wanted to show you my Halloween costume from last year when I was 8 and the pumpkin that I made with my Dad. Hope you like them. My family thought you were great on The Apprentice. I'm a big fan of Donald Trump also. Too bad you didn't win.

I hope to meet you one day.

Anyway, it's good to be...me! I love that line, I even used it on one of my school projects this year.

From,

Brendan Banks
