MURAL IN MONTANA GUITAR SHOP
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
KISS IS EVERYWHERE!

My Dad was reading in the major state-wide newspaper (the Billings Gazette) about a town here in Montana that is having a major oil boom called Glendive, MT. Quoted in the article was a guy who has the only guitar shop within a 600 mile radius. The guy just happened to mention that he was a huge KISS fan and the article showed a picture of the store's ceiling that was pretty cool.

As randomness would have it, Glendive is where my Doctor's appointments are, so I checked out the shop today. The guy was very cool, had a TON of signed KISS stuff, and is basically heading up the KISS Army Montana.

Anyway, though there was a shot of the ceiling in the paper, I wanted to get a closer, more clear version of it.

Check it out!

FATHER & SON BOND WITH TATTOOS!
KISSONLINE EXCLUSIVE SNEAK PEEK
Hello KISS Army!

Check out my son Eric's first tattoo! The day before he had this done I got a new KISS tattoo myself! Instead of the letters being all red, I had each letter a different color: K in Purple, I in Blue, S in Green, S in Red. I feel that Paul & Gene have been the stability that has held KISS together. See you in September at Jones Beach...

MY STARCHILD TATTOO!
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
Hi!

Just wanted to show off my Starchild tattoo and give a great big thank you for all the music and entertainment. I can't really put my finger on what it is that you guys got that others don't. It might be that charisma you've been singing about. I can't imagine living a day without your music, and can't wait for your next album to come out. I'll be the first one to run to the store. To be able to see you live, or meet you in person would be like a religious person meeting God, you are that great to me! KISS isn't just a band to idolize, it's a way of living! Keep up the good work, please. You're needed here, above the arctic circle....

SKULLS IN TEXAS ART EXHIBITION
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
KISS IS EVERYWHERE!

I've been a fan of KISS since the 70's. I made these pieces for an art exhibition that is currently hanging in Fort Worth, Texas. I have been an artist for over twenty years, and I think these are, quite possibly, the coolest things I have ever made. I thought you all would enjoy seeing them. They took many months to make and tons of crystals. They are buffalo skulls covered in Swarovski rhinestones. Enjoy! Thanks for the many years of awesome music, KISS!

FAN MOSAICS ROCK!
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
Hello guys!

I just sent my photo in for the new KISS Alive II Fan Mosaic, and I'm all pumped up right now!! I even wore an "Alive II" t-shirt in the photo! I've been a DIE-HARD KISS fan since 1976 and "Alive II" is my all-time favorite KISS album. It was my favorite tour and costumes of the "classic KISS" era, and was recorded in 1977 when i was 9 years old.

I sent my photo in last time when you guys did the last KISS mosaics, and chose the Rhinestone Logo to have my photo included in. When I heard you guys were doing the "Alive II" cover, I was so wired up and ecstatic i couldn't believe it. This to me, will be the ultimate tribute to one of the GREATEST bands of ALL time!!

Thank you guys so much for doing all these mosaics and allowing us fans to include our photos in an official KISS item! Keep up the AWESOME and professional job you all do!!

I'm going to see the KISS / Motley Crue show coming to Nashville on Sep. 4th and I'm all fired up for that as well. This will be my 15th KISS show and 5th Crue show. Thanks again and take care!

Sincerely, Eric J. Nelson

ARCHIE MEETS
KISS have a long history in comics, starting off with a Marvel Comics series in the late Seventies and carrying on at other publishers including Image and Dark Horse in the Nineties and 2000s. The band made their most unlikely comics appearance in the pages of Archie, in a story pairing the squeaky clean teens of Riverdale with the supernatural superhero rockers. Archie Meets KISS, a new book collecting the entire Archie/KISS epic by writer Alex Segura and artist Dan Parent, is in stores on April 11th, but you can check out an excerpt here today.

MINI GOLF IN TOP 10 UNUSUAL VEGAS ATTRACTIONS
KISS Mini Golf included in Top 10 most unusual attractions in Vegas

By Jeannie Garcia / VEGAS.com

If you’re planning your trip to Las Vegas, we’re pretty sure you want to do something out of the ordinary. Something you want to share with your friends on all the social media outlets. Something you never want to forget.

Sure, you can hit up all the nightclubs or even take all that energy to the daytime pool parties. But if you want to stand out from all your other friends a visit to some of the attractions in Vegas will do it.

Attractions in Vegas aren’t just for the kids. If you’re looking to kill time during the day, you can have a whole lot of fun doing it.

KISS Monster Golf

The only time I saw golf and KISS referenced together was in one of my all-time favorite movies, “Happy Gilmore.” Never did I imagine that these two elements would come together in real life.

Located across the street from Hard Rock Hotel on Harmon Avenue and Paradise Road, KISS Monster Golf features an indoor glow-in-the-dark 18-hole golf course and the walls are adorned with KISS images. There’s even a café and wedding chapel if you can’t get enough of KISS.

For only $11.95 per golfing session, you can rock and putt all night.

GENE SIMMONS WINS 'GOLDEN GOD' AWARD
by: Matthew Wilkening

Gene Simmons, whose face is going to freeze like that one of these days if he’s not careful, was presented with the ‘Golden God’ award at the Revolver Golden Gods awards, which aired via webcast.

The KISS legend seemed legitimately touched by receiving the show’s annual award for the artist who most embodies the “spirit of hard rock and metal.” In fact, he didn’t even try to sell anything during his earnest and even maybe inspiring speech, which went something like this:

“All of us had dreams, all of us were kids at one point. Some of us got lucky, to get up on stage. Something strange happens when you get on the stage, it’s holy ground. This is electric church baby, we do it for you. Without you… all of us, we’re nobody. We’re asking the next guy in line, ‘would you like fries with that?’ So my debt of gratitude to you for making this come true. I hope all your dreams come true!”

Nice, right? Simmons received the award from Nikki Sixx of Motley Crue, who himself had just won the Best Bassist honor. During his introductory speech, Sixx revealed he once slept on the streets of Seattle as a youngster in order to see KISS perform. He won’t have to go to such lengths to witness the Demon in action when the two bands embark on perhaps the summer’s most anticipated tour this summer.

- "LICK IT UP" ON 'DANCING WITH THE STARS'


By Jodi Jill

KISS returned on Tuesday night for Dancing With the Stars. The rockers hit the ballroom dance floor once again kicking off the show with an amazing performance of Lick it Up. Dressed in full costume, the fans were rocking out around the stage (and at home) and the guys showed how to make the show exciting.

The performance was accompanied by a dance routine as well. Mark Ballas, Chelsie Hightower, Henry Byalikov and Oksana Dmytrenko were dancing on the dance floor as the rockers were performing. The routine was with plenty of leather and gave the dancing fans a new way to look at the Dancing With the Stars ballroom.

The band KISS will be hitting the road over the summer as they perform at one of the biggest live concert shows planned for 2012. The global dates will give everyone a chance to see KISS in every part of the world.

Take a look at the video clip of KISS rock out Dancing With the Stars by performing Lick It Up. An odd choice for a dancing reality competition, but KISS perfectly fit into the rock themed week.
