MY BIRTHDAY CAKE
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
Dear KISS,

First of all I just want to thank you for all the joy you have brought to my life. I started listening to you when I was around 5 or 6. Just a few months back, I was given a surprise party for my 40th birthday, and my sister made me this amazing cake. Took like a total of 6 hours to make it. Hopefully, you'll get this and appreciate it as much as I did. thank you for all the entertainment you have given me. You changed my life forever.

A true fan,
Bill Kerr
Baltimore, MD

MY 40TH BIRTHDAY SURPRISE
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
July 25th was my 40th birthday - and thanks to my four daughters - I will never forget it! My wife and other family members were all gathered in a Sushi Restaurant in St. Petersburg, Florida waiting for my four daughters to arrive...who wanted to drive separately and were running late. After about 30 minutes I was told they had just pulled in the parking lot but were waiting in the car because there was a tremendous Thunderstorm taking place (in typical Tampa Bay fashion.) I got up to go walk them in with an umbrella but my wife urged me to wait...and just let them come in. I knew something was up, but I had no idea what?

After a few minutes I saw heads turning from every part of the place towards the entrance. In walked my four beautiful daughters in FULL KISS MAKE-UP with a big sign they had made which read, "Still the Hottest Dad in the World...CHRIS" I was blown away. They did the make-up by themselves and got everything together on their own. It was very cool! People at other tables were clapping when they came in and one guy even yelled from across the room, "That's awesome, I Love KISS!"

It was a great night! Thanks girls! You sure know your Dad!

THE QUEEN? WE'D LOVE TO!
PEREZHILTON.COM
We'd love to!!

Now that she's the Official Queen of Twitter, Lady GaGa tweeted a picture of her looking faboosh with the band KISS.

Gene Simmons loves Gagalicious almost as much as we do, saying, "I love the vibe, the big mouth and the big visuals. She's the most exciting thing to happen since us. She's a female version of us."

Does this mean they might be recording a song together?

Amazeballs!

ACCESS ATLANTA
KISS' Stanley: Current tour is rock 'n' roll 'with full guns blazing'

By Jon Waterhouse For the AJC

Don't tell KISS co-founder Paul Stanley he's too old to be dressing up in war paint, singing "Love Gun" and ripping power chords. At 58 years old, Stanley continues serving as ringmaster for the band's live rock 'n' roll circus. And he does so while pulling off feats such as one-handed pushups and flying over the crowd on a zip line-like apparatus.

Stanley and company will attempt to wow an Atlanta audience for the second time in less than a year. And in an effort to attract a new generation, the band is offering as many as four free children's lawn tickets for every adult lawn ticket sold.

Q.: Pound for pound, you have the best between-song banter in the history of rock 'n' roll.

A.: There are people who would agree, and there are people who would say it's the most absurd banter. But either way it's memorable.

Legendary Rock band KISS adds their name to Mohegan Sun's Walk of Fame

Mohegan Sun is pleased to announce that KISS, one of the most iconic and recognized Rock bands of all time, has been inducted into Mohegan Sun's Walk of Fame. This places KISS among an elite group of entertainers whose stars will now lie beside theirs. Their induction took place Thursday, August 19th in The Shops concourse in front of a crowd of excited fans. KISS is the 20th star to be inducted into Mohegan Sun's Walk of Fame. Upon receiving their star band member, Paul Stanley, jokingly asked fans "Why aren't you in the Arena for the show, are you waiting for us?"

KISS has been rocking out arenas for the last four decades and has become one of the most renowned Rock bands in the history of music, with popular songs like "Rock And Roll All Nite" and "Calling Dr. Love." They have sold over 100 million albums worldwide and have continued their incredible success with the release of their latest album, Sonic Boom, just last year.

Check out this fan-filmed video of KISS being inducted into the Mohegan Sun Hall of Fame!

Special thanks to Steve Feldman for sending the video to KISSonline.

KISS perform tonight at the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, NJ

BY MIKE KERWICK

A few weeks ago, Eric Singer found a mirror in his dressing room. He took a moment to stare at the 52-year-old man in the red, white and black makeup, amused by his reflection.

Wow. This is great. I'm getting to do something I always wanted to do.

"I'm trying to learn to really appreciate those moments when you're in them," Singer said during a recent phone interview. "Rather than thinking, 'Oh wow, that's cool that I played with Brian May 12 years ago.' Or, 'That's cool that we're going to go play in Cleveland, my hometown, in another few weeks.' "

Enjoying the ride

Singer, three times a member of KISS, twice replaced by original drummer Peter Criss, knows there may be a moment when he relinquishes the reins a third time. So he tries to enjoy each appearance on "The Tonight Show." He soaks up those minutes when the band sits together in the dressing room, applying makeup.
