ROCK 'N' ROLL: & MINI
DETROIT FREE PRESS
If you're a really big fan of the glam band KKISS, this is your car. Mini is dressing up four of its iconic Countryman crossovers to look like the 1980s rockers.

The four are being sold on eBay with the proceeds going to the children's charity UNICEF. Each car will be given the face-paint look of one band mate, but will be signed by all four members of the band. That's the Gene Simmons-inspired car in the photo.

You may recall that KISS made a splashy impression in April at the New York auto show as part of a Mini presentation. Three out of four KISS musicians showed up, and Mini USA's chief was painted as if he were a member of the band.

In addition to the auction, Mini USA is selling vehicle wraps featuring the KISS-inspired designs, initially revealed at the New York Auto Show. Proceeds from the sales of the vehicle wraps will also be donated to UNICEF.

PERSONALITY OF THE YEAR - GENE SIMMONS
REALSCREEN MAGAZINE
PERSONALITY OF THE YEAR - GENE SIMMONS

Gene Simmons was born in Haifa, Israel in 1949, and is the only child of his mother, a German Nazi Concentration Camp survivor. Having graduated State University (NYSU), and City University (CUNY) with a Bachelor of Education degree, Simmons taught sixth grade in Spanish Harlem in New York City, became the Assistant to the Director of the Puerto Rican Inter Agency Council, a government-funded research and demonstration project, and also worked at Glamour and Vogue.

Having founded the legendary rock band KISS 36 years ago, Gene Simmons and his band mates have broken box office records set by The Beatles and Elvis Presley and continue stronger than ever. According to the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), KISS is America's number one gold record-winning group of all time.

Simmons is "happily unmarried" to his partner of 25 years, Shannon Tweed. Their children are Nick and Sophie, and together, the family has starred in A&E's Gene Simmons Family Jewels, the longest-running celebrity reality show of all time.

Gene Simmons Family Jewels emerged the winner in the docusoap category at the 2010 edition of the Factual Entertainment Awards. In recognition of Simmons' contribution to the show's longevity and indeed to the "celebrity" genre, realscreen and the Factual Entertainment Forum are thrilled to give Gene Simmons, perhaps the ultimate multi-hyphenate, our inaugural Personality of the Year award.

Mini auctions KISS Countryman cars to fund global relief efforts

By MICHELLE KOUEITER

If Dad's Gene Simmons poster is starting to lose its luster, you should probably sign on to eBay to try to win him a custom-painted Mini forever emblazoned with that tongue.

Mini and the rock bank Kiss partnered to auction four Countrymans (Countrymen?) that are custom-painted with the iconic likeness of each band member, in a 10-day Father's Day charity auction that started on May 29.

Kiss band members joined Mini at the New York auto show in April to unveil the four vehicles now up for auction.

Proceeds will go to UNICEF to help children in Japan and toward other emergency relief efforts around the globe.
