Kiss co-founders Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley have been rock-and-rolling all night and partying every day for 35 years.

This year the group has been nominated for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and continues to fill arenas with fans of all ages.

After a falling-out with original lead guitarist Ace Frehley and drummer Peter Criss, Simmons and Stanley are soldiering on, making millions more through concerts, a new album ("Sonic Boom") and the most extensive product licensing in the history of rock. (Newest item: Kiss Mr. Potato Head.)

Simmons, who still wears full make-up and a costume onstage, called to talk about the band's Alive 35 tour (in Glendale on Tuesday, Dec. 1) and performing at 60.

REMEMBERING ERIC CARR
KISSONLINE
Sadly, today is the 18th anniversary of the death of our beloved friend Eric Carr.

We all miss and remember Eric for his devotion to his fans and his dedication and belief in KISS. He was a ferocious drummer with a gentle spirit. We all lost him way too soon.

Here's a clip of Eric Carr singing Black Diamond in Sydney'80.:

RED DEER ADVOCATE
Kevin Waschuk scored a big coup for garage guitarists everywhere who fantasize about playing with their favourite rock band.

The Red Deer resident and KISS fanatic got a once-in-a-lifetime chance to play guitar with Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley and the boys, when the KISS musicians did a sound check before their Nov. 12 Calgary concert.

Waschuk recalled the surreal experience of standing on the Saddledome stage, playing Cold Gin and Detroit Rock City with KISS members, before they donned their studded costumes, big boots and pancake makeup. "It was a very laid-back casual thing, but I was anxious, nervous, excited..." he said.

The moment when KISS guitarist Stanley gave his playing an approving look, Waschuk knew his eight years of guitar lessons were worth it.
