KISS AT SARNIA BAYFEST

By TARA HAGAN, SUN MEDIA

Bayfest s rock weekend lineup is official, with KISS hitting the stage on July 10. Organizer Michele Stokley said she was relieved to finally get the word out.

'People have been so anxious to know the lineup. It s been more overwhelming this year than any other year,' she said, noting online petitions and social networking groups focused on Bayfest 2009.

'It s great that people are putting so much thought into Bayfest.'

Internet rumours had focused on KISS making an appearance in Sarnia, and Stokley said she can finally confirm it.

'We ve been trying for years and years to get them,' she said, noting organizers came close last year but conflicting tour dates kept the legendary rockers away.

'It feels really good; we re really excited.'

KISS will perform on Friday, July 10. Known for its trademark face paint and stage outfits since emerging in the 1970 s, the band has sold more than 85 million records worldwide.

'It s more than just a rock show. It s everything that goes with KISS. They re a great band to see live,' said Stokley.

Tickets are available locally at Stoke s Bay, Stoke s Inland, The Coffee Lodge, Sam the Record Man, and Libro Financial, or online at www.sarniabayfest.com.

GENE CHECKS IN!

Date: March 27

Today, went through the entire set we intend on playing in the forthcoming SOUTH AMERICAN swing of our KISS Alive 35 World Tour. If you've seen some of the media coming out of S. America, you'll notice we're mostly playing soccer stadiums...and we're told the tix are almost all gone.

Today was a special day -- we all lined up to get Yellow Fever shots. Great. No one was anxious to get stung by a needle, but if that's what it takes for us to get together with 50,000 close friends we'll role up our sleeves.

We've also been recording our first New Studio Album in 11 years!!!. Produced by Paul Stanley. And, having Paul simply decide things, works better. Democracy is highly overrated. Paul is kickin' ass. The material sounds great and Tommy and Eric are in great form.

We have 4 tunes recorded. If you're a fan of our stuff from about 1977, you'll feel right at home. All of us have taken up the songwriting call to arms in the same spirit we once did -- without a care in the world and without outside writers. Nothing to prove to anyone. Just doing what comes naturally. Ignoring fashions, trends and with a personal vow from all of us: no rapping. There are plenty of people out there doing this and they don't need four palefaced guys pretending they're from the hood. Besides, I'm not sure how to correctly pronounce 'wassup.'

Tommy is finishing his solo tune. Sounds great, I can tell you. And Eric is going to sing on the album.

Most importantly, we are having the time of our lives, and can't wait to see our friends South of the Border.

We hop on our jet April 1st, on the way to gig #1-Santiago.

See you all there...Or maybe later!

PAUL STANLEY DISPLAYS ARTISTIC SIDE

By JOHN ROGERS, Associated Press Writer

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. When it comes to glam rock stars, Paul Stanley always could wield that makeup brush with the best of them.

So maybe it shouldn't have come as a surprise that the Kiss guitarist, first introduced to the world with his face covered in white makeup, his lips painted bright red, a dark star over his right eye, would someday set aside that guitar long enough to pour his soul into oil on canvas.

Still, Stanley says he was the most surprised guy on the planet when he, an art-class washout from New York City's High School of Music and Art, suddenly began...
