CHARLOTTE OBSERVER
All they're made up to be

By Courtney Devores

Titling its 2010 tour "The Hottest Show on Earth" may seem clairvoyant on Kiss' part given the skyrocketing summer temperatures, but according to Paul Stanley it's not literal.

"...Not because of the weather. The show is by far the best Kiss show ever. Any band with money can buy smoke machines and big sound systems," he told the Observer recently. "Technology really allowed us to take this to a whole other level. I don't mean moving sidewalks on stage with dancers. Its rock 'n' roll as spectacle. Massive screens, screens built into the amplifiers, the lighting - everything is taken to the next step. The set list covers more territory than what we've done before and really celebrates the history."

That set list covers early tracks such as "Cold Gin" to Kiss' 2009 album "Sonic Boom," as well as representatives of dalliances with disco ("I Was Made For Loving You") and hair-metal ("Crazy Crazy Nights") and classics "Love Gun" and "Detroit Rock City." Recent reviews indicate almost as many vocal contributions from Gene Simmons as Stanley.

By Bill Fortier TELEGRAM & GAZETTE STAFF

UXBRIDGE Bruce A. Veinotte, 42, just smiles when he is asked about The Who song: Pinball Wizard."

"People bring it up all the time," he said as he stood behind the counter of Mantown Pinball Sales, 2 South Main St. "But I'm not really a big Who fan."

Mr. Veinotte says he's a KISS fan, and a big Bally pinball machine, circa 1978, featuring co-frontman Gene Simmons greets visitors walking into the business that opened about three weeks ago.

Gibson GuitarTown: Sunset Strip Hollywood, CA features the KISS Guitar: Dressed To Kill - created by James Rutnam, Visual Artist

Photos from jasoninhollywood.blogspot.com

The Sunset Strip and Gibson Guitar announces the launch of GuitarTown, a public arts project that will feature more than 25 ten-foot tall fiberglass Gibson Les Paul model guitars strategically placed on the legendary Sunset Strip in West Hollywood beginning in August, 2010.

Each guitar sculpture will celebrate a musician, personality or artist unique to The Sunset Strip's history and Gibson Guitar.

"I chose to do my guitar as a tribute to KISS because as a fan of rock and roll, I felt their image and style were well suited to represent rock in a big way."

- James Rutnam, Visual Artist, "Dressed To Kill"

This homage to KISS can be found just below L.A.'s infamous boutique hotel, Chateau Marmont, along Sunset Boulevard.

Though FANGORIA #297 has yet to hit stands (check out a first look here), we're currently hard at work on our second Halloween-season spectacular and thought we'd give you an advance peek at our Fango #298 cover boy, after the jump...

For nearly 40 years, almost every stadium stage on the face of the Earth has fallen prey to the toothy stomp of Gene Simmons' ruby-eyed dragon boots; has been bathed in the warm splat of his fake-blood-tainted saliva; has had its rafters scorched by the belch of his petrol-gargled fire breath. And since the legendary Kiss frontman's entire identity was forged in horror and dark-fantasy culture, we're tipping our hats to rock's original monster, "The Demon" himself, in this special, one-of-a-kind issue of FANGORIA (on sale in October). Buckle in for an exclusive sit-down with Simmons where we talk about monsters, junk culture, comic books, THE TWILIGHT ZONE and, of course...horror. We'll also chat up his brother in bombast, Paul Stanley, about his own relationship with the genre.
