TOMMY HELPS CHILDRENS HOSPITAL
TOMMY DONATES ROYALTIES TO HOSPITAL

KISS Guitarist Tommy Thayer Donates Hughes & Kettner Amp Royalties To Childrens Hospital Los Angeles

In May of this year we launched the 'Tommy Thayer Signature Duotone Head' to coincide with KISS' Alive 35 World Tour. Tommy asked us to donate all his royalties from sales of this amp to Childrens Hospital Los Angeles.

Here he is meeting some of the senior physicians and staff during his recent visit to the hospital to present the first check to Mr. Henri Ford, Vice President, and Surgeon-in-Chief.

'Caring for children and their medical needs is so important to me. Childrens Hospital Los Angeles is dedicated to providing the highest quality pediatric care anywhere in the world and they make it happen every day,' says Tommy.

We have already made a second production run of his signature amp, so another check is on its way.

Thanks Tommy for the support you give to Hughes & Kettner, and your kindness to donate your royalties to such an important cause.

DOCUMENTARY
KISS ON NORWEGIAN TV

The Norwegian national TV company NRK will show a brand new KISS documentary on November 5. Both current and former KISS members will appear in the documentary. A preview can be found at NRK's webpage:

http://www.nrk.no/lydverket/tidenes-verste-rockefilm/#more-4935 .

NRK has made the following presentation of the documentary:

On Wednesday Lydverket will show a documentary about KISS where current and former band members as well as other associates tell the unmasked story about the madness we know as Kiss. To record a TV film in 1978 was just one of the things Kiss did to make money out of the Kiss brand and some 30 years later Paul Stanley has got a pragmatic view on this 'acting' career. - What doesn't kill makes you stronger, Stanley says to Lydverket about his experiences from the cult film 'Kiss Meets The Phantom Of The Park'. I will get back with more details asap.

OUR PRINCESS IS A FAN!
KOL FAN LETTER

Our 4 year old princess... a huge KISS fan!

I've been a KISS fan since 1976.... influenced my husband into fandom, in the early 90's and now, our offspring, an absolutely adorable little Princess named Brighid, joins the ranks! She adores the band, has a crush on Paul just like her Mommy (me), and wants to marry Gene Simmons.

She requested that I make her a Gene costume for this Halloween, so of course, I obliged. I sculpted the boots and armor using Model Magic. The Axe Bass is foam core, reinforced with wood, the bat wings are PVC with iron-on studs.

Here's our little lady in waiting, as her fave Bassist! She would be beyond thrilled to see herself on Kissonline!

KANSAS KISS TRIBUTE BAND

By LISA GUTIERREZ

The Kansas City Star

By day, he s a maintenance worker for Mid-Continent Public Libraries.

By night, he s Gene Simmons of Kiss - Halloween makeup and all - and women bare their breasts for him to autograph.

Life is really rough for 50-year-old Scott Jensen of south Kansas City, known as Almost Gene, the lead singer of the Kiss tribute band called Almost Kiss.

They play shows around the Midwest and have built up a fan base of adoring baby boomers who remember the days before the real Gene Simmons stripped off his makeup and became mortal like the rest of us.

Ah, where did the magic go?...

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.

CLICK HERE to pre-order the Gene Simmons Axe Guitar at Amazon.
