OUR WEDDING CAKE!
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
Hi Everyone,

My name is Joshua, and I just felt I had to share OUR wedding cake with you! Me and my wonderful wife just tied the knot Aug. 20,2011. With our wedding colors of blue, black and purple, we decided we wanted to do everything off-the-wall, a Rock n' Roll wedding theme, an electric guitar wedding march, a KISS wedding / reception cd, and even a 3-tier wedding cake to top it all off. The sides of the cake reads - "You May KISS The Bride." Personally, I thought the "album cover" cake looked way to nice to cut up and serve, so we decide to keep and freeze it, instead of the smaller top tier. (;-p)

HOUSTON PRESS
By Craig Hlavaty

www.blogs.houstonpress.com

This week, KISS mogul Gene Simmons celebrated his 62nd birthday, probably surrounded by dozens of strippers in KISS panties, swinging on KISS sex swings, while pouring wax from KISS candles onto their KISS tramp-stamp tattoos. Damn, that actually sounds kind of hot, come to think of it.

For this weeks batch of creamy rock facts, we took on KISS, one of the most beloved bands on Earth. Houston hasn't seen any shortage of KISS in the past few years, as the band has been here about three times since 2009, with the last appearance coming at this year's RodeoHouston.

Previously, we've been flying solo on these fact sheets, but this time around we enlisted the help of the biggest KISS fan we know, one Jarod Frank. Frank works in the radio industry, including a DJ slot over at the old 107.5 The Buzz from 1995 to 1999, when they were playing the bands we love that now influence all the bands we don't like on the station today. Now he works for CBS Radio Houston.
