ON THIS DAY IN TORY 1973
KISSONLINE
On this day in KISStory - December 31, 1973, Gene Simmons caught his hair on fire during KISS' performance at the Academy of Music in New York City.

From Blender Magazine:

As the bombastic Kiss bassist certainly knows, one of the perils of breathing fire is that you can't always control where the fire goes. Problems arose the very first time Simmons attempted the stunt onstage on New Year's Eve 1973, in New York City. Toward the end of "Firehouse," Simmons walked offstage to fill his mouth with kerosene, but when he returned to the center of the stage and blew a large fireball, it set his copiously hair-sprayed locks ablaze. A roadie quickly extinguished the flames with a wet towel, but Simmons hardly learned his lesson: He'd repeat the mishap another half-dozen or so times in his career.

Here's a clip of Gene catching his hair on fire at another KISS show.

BEST MAS EVER!
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
Dear KISS,

This was my very first KISSmas, as I am a new enlistee to the KISS Army (since August). But my fiance has been one since the Destroyer era. I think we made out pretty good this year... He got me the Destroyer dolls and I got him the 1999 KISS busts. Also not pictured are his Destroyer bar stool, my KISS cozy blanket, and the Creatures of the Night action figures. Looking forward to seeing you on the road in 2011.
