GENE: "ALL IS WELL"
GENESIMMONS.com
NOTE FROM GENE

So, Miss Tweed and I were at LAX... we got some Decaf Coffee and some eggs... and there I am munching and taking a few sips... and then, I feel this rush of heat from my feet up to my head... and then apparently I blacked out.

I woke up in a nearby hospital. I was told I passed out due to dehydration, lack of sleep, and just pure exhaustion.

I spent a night at the hospital and found, to my surprise, half of my left eyebrow literally fell off... I must have hit the ground hard. I don't remember. So, there I am being stitched up, eating hospital food, and itchy to get back to work.

I'm back home. All is well.

I've been getting lots of emails and calls asking if everything is fine. Yes. Thank you. All is well.

GENESIMMONS.com
Here's the KISS, and Gene Simmons Family Jewels Rolls Royces from last weekend's RALLY FOR KIDS children's cancer charity in Los Angeles.

Gene posted the following RALLY wrap-up on his website:

On Saturday, Oct 23rd, Miss Tweed and I participated in the RALLY FOR KIDS children's cancer charity. Monies raised went directly to the neediest.

The rally consisted of high end cars in a scavenger hunt throughout LA and the outlining areas. There were clues at every stop, and points gained or lost depending on all sorts of variables. Miss Tweed took the GSFJ Rolls Royce and I was in the KISS Rolls Royce. Needless to say, wherever we went, we stopped traffic.

The day began at 7:30 am and ended with a charity auction held at the Kodak Theater in Hollywood at 11:00 pm.

ANOTHER NEW MEXICO LOTTERY WINNER
NEW MEXICO LOTTERY
Wisecracking Player Wins $50,000 'KISS' Prize

ALBUQUERQUE – Fortunately, the store clerk knew what Steven Herrera meant when he said, "I'd like three KISSES."

Late Tuesday evening, a good-humored Herrera purchased three tickets from the New Mexico Lottery's "KISS" Scratcher game after hearing the customer ahead of him say, "Throw in a KISS."

The Albuquerque resident played the tickets before turning in. After revealing a $50,000 top prize on the third ticket, Herrera learned that there’s no rest for the winning.

"I didn't sleep last night," he told lottery officials. "I had to keep checking the ticket."

Herrera was also making a list of all the things he could buy, starting with an item that will help safeguard his sister.

"She's on the road a lot and last week I noticed that her tires were bald," he said. "The first thing I thought of was that Mo needs new tires."

After buying his sis a set of whitewalls, Herrera plans to use his prize to pay off his car loan.

Herrera's lucky KISS Scratcher came from Circle K No. 6280 located at 6951 San Antonio Drive NE in Albuquerque.

The sale of New Mexico Lottery games benefits a tuition-assistance program for New Mexico residents attending the state's public colleges and universities. Since 1996, the lottery has raised $456 million for education and more than 61,000 students have attended college on Legislative Lottery Scholarships.

Information about Legislative Lottery Scholarships is available at www.nmlottery.com.

TASTIC WALK FOR BREAST CANCER
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
Hey to our favorite band!

On Sunday, October 17th, my daughter Gracie and I took a 5K walk to help spread the word for breast cancer awareness, down in Pt Pleasant, NJ. Peter Criss was one of the leaders of our team, so we thought it fitting to paint ourselves as Catwomen for the occasion. Gracie even brought along her "sticks"!

The walk was a resounding success. More that 12,000 people showed up! However, surprisingly enough we were the only ones in makeup... At least we stood out from the crowd! Can't wait for the release of your new album and for your next tour here in the States.

Amy and Gracie Bigerna South Orange, NJ

MENTION IN NEW PATTERSON BEST SELLER
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
KISS IS EVERYWHERE!

James Patterson, the world's best selling author, and my old ad boss and good friend of 17 years, just wrote about Gene Simmons in his latest thriller, "Don't Blink."

The protagonist, a blond six foot reporter, is talking about being hard to miss in an Arab airport.

"I couldn't stand out more if I were Gene Simmons wearing full Kiss makeup and reading the Koran out loud."

Anyway, thought you'd get a kick out of it, and of course, like all Jim's novels, it's already #6 on the NY Times Best Seller list!


Cheers,
Linda
