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

Mixed in 5.1 surround and stereo, highlights include not only KISS favorites such as "Lick It Up," "Love Gun" and "Detroit Rock City" but also songs from his hit solo album. Backed by the amazing house band from the CBS shows "Rock Star: INXS" and "Rock Star: Supernova," Stanley ignites the stage as he performs his first new songs in more than eight years, including "Live To Win" (Top 10 Classic Rock on the Mediabase Chart), "Bulletproof" and "Lift." "Live To Win" was also pivotally featured in the Emmy-winning "South Park" episode "Make Love, Not Warcraft." The Star Child draws up every ounce of adrenaline and showmanship, leaving nothing behind but a crowd exploding into cheers at near rioting levels.

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
