PAUL STANLEY CUSTOM GUITAR
RACING RED PREACHER

Here's another update on Custom Paul Stanley Guitars from our friend Eric McKenna over at Boogie Street Guitars.

‘RACING RED USA Custom Shop PS5 Preacher!

It s here!

As discussed in our prior video I mentioned that Washburn Custom Shop Director, Terry Atkins, did a couple of our PS5 guitars up in solid colors and high gloss! And this Racing Red monster does not disappoint!

I saw the guitar at Washburn last week but somehow - it looks even BETTER here at BSG!

Dan did a great job photographing the guitar however - Red is a very, very tough color - maybe the toughest - to photograph digitally.

This guitar is RED. Racing Red. Not Orange. Not Burgundy. RED!

It s outfitted with Red/Black open coiled Seymour Duncans. A JB in the bridge and a ‘59 in the neck. It has black hardware including a TonePros bridge and Grover 18-1 with… of course…KEYSTONE buttons. It s the BSG WAY!

There will other solid color PS5 guitars and more oil finish PS5 guitars. Paul digs them. I dig them. Washburn digs them. And most importantly - the PS5 owners really dig them!

Here are some pics and take note of a video to follow soon. The PS5 will be part of the May 6th Video Update.

THANKS!!

Eric McKenna

THIS DAY IN TORY 2008
EUROPEAN ALIVE 35 TOUR OPENED

Believe it or not...it's already been a year since KISS opened their European ALIVE 35 Tour in Oberhausen, Germany! The 2008 Tour became KISS' most successful Tour of Europe ever!!

Here's a review from opening night:

WOW! What a way to open their Alive 35 European Tour! KISS just destroyed Oberhausen Arena with a blistering 2 hour and 17 minute set that featured the complete ALIVE album and a six song encore! From the opening of 'Deuce' to the ending of 'Detroit Rock City', KISS grabbed the audience by the throat and never let go.

The band's performance was a true team effort and everyone was on top of their game! Paul danced, pranced and belted out vocals like it was 1975. Gene was, to put it simply, the DEMON - menacing on both bass and vocals. Eric pounded the drums, sang lead on 'Nothin' To Lose' & 'Black Diamond' and also sang along with Gene on several other songs. Tommy blazed his way through lead after lead, as well as an awesome solo complete with rocket shooting special effects.

KISS is always powerful and energetic, but tonight they some how turned it up a notch! And to think, this was just the first show..can't wait for Munich!

SET LIST IN ORDER:

Deuce / Strutter / Got To Choose / Hotter Than Hell / Firehouse / Nothin' To Lose (Eric lead vocals) / C'Mon And Love Me / Parasite / She / Watchin' You / Rock Bottom / 100,000 Years / Cold Gin / Let Me Go Rock 'N' Roll / Black Diamond (Eric lead vocals) / Rock And Roll All Nite

Encore:

Shout It Out Loud / Lick It Up / I Love It Loud (Gene split blood and flew to rafters) / I Was Made For Lovin' You / Love Gun (Paul flew to back of arena) / Detroit Rock City

FAN DEMANDS !
FAN FIGHTS TO BRING KISS TO BELLEVILLE!

By W. Brice McVicar The Intelligencer

Marcel Dubé can still remember the first time he saw the rock ‘n roll band KISS.

'My first introduction was when I saw them on the Paul Lynde Halloween Special,' said Dubé, who was six at the time, of the 1976 television special. 'I remember seeing them and I thought they were amazing and I wanted to be like them.'

Today, at 39, Dubé is as close to being a member of the band as one can — he is the drummer in the KISS tribute band Fried Alive. The group features four members performing classic KISS hits in full makeup.

Wearing his makeup and sitting behind his drum kit, Dubé only sings one major KISS song — Beth — but will be singing the praise of his favourite band this Friday at his workplace. Dubé said he plans to go to Stream on Dundas Street West at this week s end in full makeup and encourage his co-workers to visit kissonline.com where people can vote to bring KISS to their city. The city that gathers the most votes — Belleville is currently sitting at No. 93 — will be rewarded by having the band play there.

For Dubé, bringing KISS to Belleville would be a major accomplishment.

'I m spreading the word to the KISS Army and trying to figure out how I can get as many people as possible to vote,' he said. 'I d love to see them here. They re almost like superheroes the way they re dressed up and the make-up and there s lots of theatrics. You just don t see bands today who are anything like them.'

It s not just Dubé who is spreading the word and trying to have more people cast their vote online. The Belleville and District Chamber of Commerce has also come on board as a promoter.

Angela Genereaux, the chamber s chief executive officer, said a notice had been sent out to all members encouraging them to cast their vote.

'It s exciting. Anything we can do to bring KISS to Belleville is great,' she said. 'We have already witnessed the benefits of Big Music Fest and the Classic Rock Festival so just imagine the excitement we d see in a city of 46,000 if we brought KISS here.'

Votes can be cast at www.kissonline.com or visit www.intelligencer.ca and follow the link.
