PAUL FAN MOCUMENTARY

Marc Kancler is a man with a passion. In fact, it is his passion that is driving him, along with twin brother Kris, to not only own the world's largest PAUL STANLEY guitar collection, but to start owning the largest PAUL STANLEY art collection as well. 'PAUL STANLEY is one of the 7 greatest wonders of the world,' explained Marc. 'Here you have a man who knew what he wanted out of life and had the guts and drive to go out and get it - while at the same time never forgetting where he came from.' Marc goes on to say, 'Paul has accomplished so many things in his life and, unbeknownst to him, one of them was setting the path for my brother, Kris, and I to follow.' Kris says that they spoke with Paul recently and told him it's inevitable that they will be working with him. He jokingly adds that he told Paul that he would in fact probably be wearing the shirt Paul had on his back. 'Yeah, he got a kick out of that. He said that we could thank him for us being able to own the world's largest PAUL STANLEY collection. I've truly never met a nicer guy.'

Marc (aka Rock Star) and his twin brother Kris recently filmed a mocumentary video entitled, Rock Star Exposed. It's a long video but worth watching. According to Marc, they took their favorite parts from KISS' Exposed video and incorporated them into their own. 'We wanted the chance to show people how infatuated we are with this man.' All kidding aside, Kris says that they really saw this as an opportunity to show fellow members of the KISS army how much they admire this man and his work. Indeed, it's this admiration that led Marc and Kris to begin recording their first CD entitled, Putting the 'F' Back in Rock & Roll. Explains Kris, 'People are going to flip when they find out who we are working with!' 'Yeah, don't think for a second we didn't have KISS in mind when we came up with this concept,' says Marc. Besides working on the CD, the twins are putting the finishing touches on a book, a reality show about them is the works, and they have just launched a non-profit venture called, We Are One. 'It's an effort to give kids in the community the chance to find themselves musically and to keep them away from the vices that have personally kept me down and out for so many years,' says Kris. 'We are using Paul's career as a template,' says Marc. 'Drums or drugs, guitars or gangs? I'd say guitars! After all, I'm Rock Star !

LEGEND'S GOLF CLASSIC ROCKS
FOREST GROVE NEWS-TIMES
EVENT HOSTED BY TOMMY THAYER

PACIFIC UNIVERSITY ATHLETICS IS BIG WINNER AT EVENT

Golf and rock n' roll peacefully coexisted at The Reserve Vineyards and Golf Club in Aloha July 27 and 28 in an event designed to support Pacific University's 20-sport athletics program.

The second annual Legends Golf Classic, hosted by Pacific Board of Trustees member and lead KISS guitarist Tommy Thayer, started Sunday with an auction, dinner and concert featuring performances by Thayer, rising country star Crystal Shawanda and Eagles lead guitarist Don Felder.

The good times continued on Monday, and by the time the PGA pro Shaun Micheel's golf clinic ended, it was clear that the Classic would live up to its name.

Over 30 groups of golfers, music celebrities and professional athletes took to The Reserve's two courses to compete in the scramble-format tournament. Warrant's Joey Allen encouraged his group to just 'get up and rip it,' and comedian George Lopez kept his foursome relaxed with some good jokes and his in-cart radio.

And the golf was good, too. When Thayer stopped by the clubhouse to do a live radio interview with 95.5 The Game's (KXGM-FM) Gavin Dawson, his group was 9 under par. But they had a little work to do to catch former Major League pitcher Jaret Wright's group, which boasted an 11 under par score at the same juncture.

In only its second year, the Legends Golf Classic is growing. This year's celebrities included NASCAR driver Jeff Bodine, singers Johnny Lee and Ray Kennedy, 'Happy Days' television star Donny Most, former major league baseball players Chili Davis and Scott Erickson and former football all-pro Preston Pearson.

The Classic concluded Monday evening with dinner and awards for the participants.

Pacific Director of Athletics Ken Schuman was pleased with the result.

'This is a very unique event,' said Schuman. 'I know of no other university that has something like this. This is great for the university and the community.'
