KISSONLINE FAN LETTERS
To the Band Members of KISS:

It was by chance that I was in attendance at last night's KISS concert in San Antonio. A relative had tickets & asked me to come along at the last minute - literally! I was feeling really down & didn't want to go because my husband is deployed to Iraq (yes, he is one of the Soldiers that remains after the drawdown) & we are approaching the halfway mark of the deployment....I don't like doing things like this without him, particularly when he is sacrificing his freedom so that I can have mine. I was so moved when you did the tribute to the troops. When Paul Stanley said that the troops may not hear the message that America thanks them & had the crowd pledge allegiance to the flag, I cried. I want KISS to know that the troops in Iraq DID hear your message because I passed it along to my husband when I spoke to him today & asked to to share it with everyone he works with. He said that it is great to know that at least KISS didn't forget about them, when it seemingly appears everyone else has. Thank you for your continued support of our US Armed Forces! Hooah!

AT LAWYERS' CONFERENCE
AMERICAN INSTITUTE OF MEDIATION
KISS IS EVERYWHERE!

Many attendees at the Section of Dispute Resolution Conference in Atlanta had to look twice when they saw rock stars from the band KISS roaming the halls. It turned out to be Section members and conference faculty Lee Jay Berman, Jeff Kichaven, and Michelle Obradovic. Why would three self-respecting mediation professionals dress up as members of the rock band KISS? -- To make a serious point; help attendees think outside of the box, and give the message more staying power: Hundreds of mediators leave the practice every year because they fail to understand the realities of the commercial marketplace.

ROCKS EPICENTER
THE LIVE OV
Written by Melissa Garcia

As for KISS, they put any other rock band to shame with their ridiculously entertaining set. The set was packed tight with their hits "Detroit Rock City," and of course "Rock n' Roll All Night," and the more melodic "Crazy Nights," to take the hard rock down to a more bubblegum rock sound. Pyrotechnics and confetti had the audience's eyes glued to the stage. While the flaming sword and fire balls and had them running for their lives.

With Stanley strumming high in the air while hooked on to a cable KISS played "I Was Made for Loving You." I would personally like to thank the camera man who put Gene Simmons tongue on the jumbo tron for all our viewing pleasure. I've seen these guys live almost 7 years ago, and they are just as vigil and energetic as they were then, they are true rock stars to the core and their age will not age any aspect of their performance, not one bit.

Cheers to you KISS and keep rocking out, because fans young and old still seek your spontaneous performances, it's a nice break from the norm. And as Stanley put it, "The music you hear is made by the four people up here, there are no phony tapes. This is rock n' roll, and we are a rock n' roll band!" Well done KISS and well said Stanley.

Q&A: Kiss' Gene Simmons on 'Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock'

Ask Gene Simmons of Kiss about voicing the character of the Demi-God of Rock in the new Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock and he is quick to set you straight.

"Character is not the right word. That feels like a Ziegfeld Follies show," he says. "This is a persona."

That persona, the Demi-God, is at the heart of the story in the new Guitar Hero game. The game's developers at Neversoft took as a concept the "Monsters of Rock" and made transforming the game's characters -- Axel Steel, Judy Nails and the gang -- into part of the story line. The player must shred through the game's songs to unlock those character's superhero modes needed to help the Demi-God defeat The Beast that's threatening rock. "And then of course the next logical conclusion was to have the iconic Gene Simmons voice the Demi-God of Rock," says Neversoft project director Brian Bright, "who better to push it way over the top!"
