THE DEMON HELPS RAISE MONEY FOR CHARITY

Dale "The Demon" Torborg made a rare appearance this past Saturday for The Monsters 104.1 Celebrity Charity Bowling event in Orlando Florida. The event raises money for breast cancer awareness for the non profit organization Rock Pink (rockpink.com). The event raised $60,000!

Once again, The Demon was one of the highest bid on celebrities for the event. This year, KISS really was everywhere. Two of the Monsters in the Morning, Tiffany and Daniel, (pictured) wore KISS boots donated to the event by kissarmywarehouse.com to bowl in. The boots were a huge hit and will be auctioned off at a later date. Most of the women at the tournament wanted to try them on. Local newscaster for WESH 2 Orlando news, Martha Sugalski is pictured wearing Gene's Destroyer boots.

The Monster's head DJ Russ Rollins,(pictured) a huge KISS fan who recently bought one of Paul's paintings, stated, "KISS has always been great with their charity work, and I can't thank them enough for always helping others!"

KISS IN PRINCE GEORGE TONIGHT

Tongues are wagging, heads are banging and the boys are trying on their platform boots in anticipation of the KISS concert June 29 at CN Centre.

Kyle Sampson is a mega-fan who will be going on a KISS concert mini tour of his own as the band makes stops in Kamloops, Abbotsford, Prince George and Dawson Creek.

Sampson was the guy that set up a Bring KISS to Prince George Facebook page with more than 5,000 members in 2009. Through online voting KISS set up a contest to see which town would get a concert. Prince George ranked 11 out of more than 10,000 cities.

Close but no cigar.

That didn't kill Sampson's sizzling enthusiasm for the band ranked No. 10 on VH1's 100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock, ninth on The Greatest Metal Bands list by MTV, No. 1 on Hit Paraders's Top 100 Live Bands, 56 on VH1's 100 Greatest Artists Of All Time and second on Digital Dream Door's Best Hair Metal Bands.

He just got more determined to get KISS to Prince George.

RAISES THE ROOF IN ABBOTSFORD
ABBOTSFORD NEWS
By Ashley Wray - Abbotsford News

Abbotsford is officially a "rock city."

KISS singer and guitarist Paul Stanley declared the title at Monday night's concert at the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre before the band played its famous song, Detroit Rock City.

It was one of the many hits performed by the famous rock group, also consisting of Gene Simmons, Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer.

After a performance by five-piece rock band Bad City, KISS took to the stage dressed head to toe in their famous flamboyant outfits, face paint and platform shoes.

They weren't the only ones in paint.

The KISS Army turned out in full force to watch the rockers relive their classics and share their most recent tunes from the album Sonic Boom.

The audience was on its feet most of the night, dancing in the aisles, strumming on air guitars and fist pumping to the beat.

An encore saw the band return for a few more tunes, ending with Rock and Roll all Nite as confetti fell from the ceiling and fire, smoke and flashing lights engulfed the stage.

MY PIECE OF TORY
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
Hello KISS!

June 28, 1996 is undoubtedly one of the most important dates in KISStory, and to help celebrate the 15 year anniversary (WOW! Has it really be 15 years already?) of your historical performance at Tiger Stadium in Detroit, I thought I'd share this one-of-a-kind piece from my extensive KISS collection with you, and KISS fans worldwide. It's Paul's Ibanez Iceman's broken guitar body from that show, which Paul was gracious to sign and date, a few years later. This piece can be considered the "holy grail" of KISS memorabilia, and it's something I cherish, and would never part with.

Thanks for all the years of music, friendship and memories.

See you on tour this summer!
