ERIC SURPRISES ALEXEY!
KISSONLINE.com
Hi Eric,

I had a wonderful day yesterday. Being on KISS website is awesome ! I got more attention and views in one night , my first time and I am very happy that people got to know me. You may be wondering why I have this beautiful stuff. Here is what happened..Me and my brother Cid joined a band recently. My family, the band and friends went to Los Angeles, CA studio to film a video of the band's new song. During lunch break, to my surprise, Mr.Eric Singer of KISS came to the studio. I was shocked to learn that the drummer of KISS came to see me. Although,we are friends on Facebook, I still could not believe he would come.

And some more surprise !!!He brought me gifts that I needed for my drumming. You know, my snare drum at home is "falling apart". All the lugs around the snare hoop are always loose. So, when he brought me a Pearl snare drum with a Pearl stand, I was very,very happy! He gave me a Pearl Eliminator double pedal that I dreamed of having, Attack drum heads, Zildjian Eric Singer signature drumsticks and of course...KISS t-shirts and photos with KISS signature!! and KISS drum head with Mr.Eric Singer signature....Wow!!

He also taught me how to twirl the sticks with both hands. He showed me how to play Modern Day Delilah on single pedal. That was awesome!! Last but not the least...He stayed in the studio until the band finished filming. He watched me play drums for the video ! I am already using my new snare drums, sticks ,drum heads, and double pedal. Please wait for my new KISS video,coming soon!!!

I am now calling him "Uncle Eric". He is my inspiration, idol, friend and uncle!

I love you, Uncle Eric!!I'll see you again sometime soon!

Take care,
ALEXEY

ABC NEWS
By Candace Smith

Two iconic American figures have joined forces, but it may not be the ones you expect. All-American teen Archie Andrews has partnered with rock ‘n’ roll legend Kiss in an upcoming series called, eponymously, ”Archie Meets Kiss.”

The four-part series launches Nov. 30 and, in the words of writer Alex Segura of Archie Comics, “brings together two pieces of Americana for the first time.”

Jon Goldwater, CEO of Archie Comics, is a self-described “crazy Kiss fan,” even having a Kiss-themed party for his son’s Bar Mitzvah.

But Goldwater told ABC News that the idea of a partnership between Archie and Kiss came from Kiss bassist-vocalist Gene Simmons.

“One day, I was lucky enough to get a call,” Goldwater said.

Simmons flew him out to L.A. to discuss the idea of a partnership.

“His ideas were extremely inspiring, and we thought it would be a wonderful thing for Archie,” Goldwater said.

Simmons told ABC News that the partnership with Archie and Kiss seems natural.
