GENE IN DETROIT METAL CITY FILM


DEMON GOD OF ROCK AND ROLL

Detroit Metal City Film, a live-action manga remake.

Gene Simmons, the co-founder and lead vocalist of the Kiss rock band, revealed on his website that he shot a cameo for Toshio Li's live-action film adaptation of Kiminori Wakasugi's Detroit Metal City manga. According to the website's April 10 entry, Simmons played the 'Demon God of Rock and Roll.' Not coincidentally, his real-life onstage persona is nicknamed 'The Demon.' His band's signature white-and-black face corpse paint and 'Detroit Rock City' song inspired the look and name of the fictional Detroit Metal City band in Wakasugi's rock parody manga.

Simmons flew to Japan the morning after his band's March 22 show in New Zealand for his shoot. The film will open in Japan in August, and a camera crew for the Gene Simmons Family Jewels reality television series shot behind-the-scenes footage that will air in the future. In the movie, Ken'ichi Matsuyama (Death Note, NANA, Sexy Voice and Robo) stars as Sōichi, a struggling pop singer who finally becomes a hit when he reluctantly leads a metal rock band under the stage name 'Johannes Krauser II.'

SECURITY CONCERNS FORCE CANCELLATION
WITH DEEP REGRET, KISS CANCELS BELGRADE SHOW

We regret that due to security concerns relayed by US government intelligence and the unwillingness of our tour insurance policy to cover our concert, we have been left with no choice but to cancel our show in Belgrade. Because of our excitement at returning to play for our many Serbian fans, we all share in the same disappointment and it is our hope to return soon.

NOTRE DAME LOVES
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER

KISS,

Not really a question but we here at the University of Notre Dame love you! For our recent 'bookstore basketball' team (huge, 666 team (honestly) basketball tournament at ND) our team was 'Strutter: A Tribute To KISS.' We failed at recreating the outfits, but I feel we did a decent job at recreating the faces. We had 5 guys on our team, so we had to double up on one of the faces, but I feel like it still was a success. The other students on campus loved us and were all singing along to the music we were pumping out during warm-ups. I was given the opportunity to be Gene and l did my own face paint. I'm attaching some pictures and hope you enjoy them.

Anyways - thanks KISS, keep on rockin' ! Bert Williams
