KOL FAN LETTER
KISS FAN RAISES $$$ FOR SPECIAL OLYMPICS

Hello KISS!

Last weekend I participated - dressed as Paul - in the Special Olympics Polar Bear Plunge in Columbus, Ohio. Through the generosity of my friends, I was able to rasie $550 for the cause AND I won best individual costume (before I jumped into a pool of freezing water).

I think helping others is part of what the KISS Army stands for!

Rock On!

LEGENDARY ROCKERS LIFT AILING FAN'S SPIRITS

By William Croyle

NEWPORT, KY - The phone rang Wednesday afternoon in Christopher 'Critter' Smith's room at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center. His mom had just stepped out for a moment, so he answered it.

'Critter, it's Paul Stanley,' the caller said. Stanley is the lead singer for KISS, Critter's favorite rock band.

'At first, I thought it was just my dad messing with me,' Critter said.

It really was Stanley.

The band had been alerted about Critter by a fan after an article was published March 2 in The Enquirer. The article talked about the 11-year-old's battle with leukemia...

'Unplugged was a chance for us to celebrate the musical history of the band by stripping, some great songs from different points in our history, down to the bare essence of what makes them great.'

NEW TRADING CARD SET
THE KISS ARMY WILL LOVE THIS UPCOMING SET!

By Chris Olds

Forget your baseball cards for a minute … the latest non-sport set from Press Pass will have collectors breathing fire, spitting up blood, throwing the goat and ripping packs with the dial turned up to 11.

It s the upcoming KISS Ikons set, which consists of 90 cards — including special 'fire' and 'blood' parallel cards — along with authentic Gene Simmons stage-worn memorabilia cards and instant win autograph redemptions good for autographed photos of Simmons and Paul Stanley. (Oh, and it includes temporary tattoos and stickers, too, which are good for making that notebook of yours look like it s 1975 all over again.) Each 24-pack box should cost you less than $50 as packs carry a suggested retail price of $1.99.

In all seriousness, it s been awhile since we ve seen KISS cards (1978 Donruss comes to mind, but there have surely been others) and with the band releasing an album and going on tour this year, they ll surely drive ‘em wild (and maybe a little crazy, too) all night and ev-er-y day.

If you re not old enough to know, this is the band that kick-started the whole marketing machine in music with countless products and items to satisfy their fans. Oh, and they ve sold more than 85 million albums, too.

So, the next question is … how many boxes of cards?

We ll find out starting on April 15.

FROM KISS FRONT MAN TO GALLERY ARTISTE

By Carolina A. Miranda

On an overcast afternoon in the tony New Jersey enclave of Short Hills, dozens of patrons have packed into the Wentworth Gallery to celebrate an art opening. Glasses of chilled chardonnay are served in the white-walled space as a battalion of gallery assistants respond to customer queries about abstract works in shades of blush and marigold. But make no mistake: this is not your average academic art exhibit. A quick scan of the attendees reveals lots of big hair, tight jeans and hints of rocker-girl décolletage. The sound system throbs with the refrain 'Lick it up, lick it up.' And...
