As most of my readers know, I am a huge fan of the rock band, KISS, and have been for 36 years. I have written a couple of blogs about the band, one being about the celebration of their 40th Anniversary, another reviewing their most recent album, “Monster,” and a few others. I will be reviewing a KISS concert I just watched on AXS TV from Switzerland today, June 20, 2013.

KISS is currently on a European tour that started on June 1st in Stockholm, Sweden, and ends on June 22nd in Clisson, France. KISS continues its North American leg (in limited dates) on July 5th in Victoria, B.C., Canada, and finishes in Hollywood, FL on August 18th, as of this writing. The band then goes to Japan in mid-October for a couple of dates, and then participates to their KISS KRUISE III in the last weekend of October.

Thursday June 21st, AXS TV aired a live KISS concert from the band’s current European tour. The show emanated from the Hallen Stadion in Zurich, Switzerland, and AXS TV aired it at 3pm ET (12pm PT). I advise you check your local listings for replays.

Now, I will proceed to review the concert itself. I hope you will enjoy it.

TOMMY THAYER MEET & GREET IN VANCOUVER
Tommy Thayer of KISS Meet & Greet: Long & McQuade Vancouver

Epiphone signature artist and KISS lead guitarist Tommy Thayer will be making a very special appearance at Long & McQuade Musical Instruments in Vancouver, BC on July 6. Don't miss this opportunity to say hi to Tommy, get a picture taken and an autograph.

Long &McQuade
368 Terminal Ave.
Vanvouver, British Columbia
(604) 734-4886

Tommy Thayer's life story is the classic tale of a musician who knew from childhood that his future was on stage with a guitar in-hand. Thayer has been part of the KISS family since 1985 as songwriter and guitarist, working behind-the-scenes at rehearsals and on studio demos. Finally, in 2002, Tommy became a full-fledged member, joining KISS on stage as the iconic "Spaceman" and giving the rock legends an explosive new sound and attitude. And now, the 21st century "Spaceman" has his own Les Paul Standard with Gibson 498T™ Humbuckers, Grover™ Deluxe Vintage tuners, and a custom silver hard case with a signed certificate of authenticity. And like Tommy himself, this Les Paul Standard "Spaceman" is one-of-a-kind, with a limited run of only 1,000.

MUSIC MYTHS: ROCK 'N' ROLL FOLKLORE
The enigma of rock 'n' roll comes with its own brand of myths and legends that permeate through culture and become fixtures in certain artists' lore. From the strange relationship confusion surrounding The White Stripes to Lady Gaga being a rumored hermaphrodite, certain music mythology amplifies the bohemian world of rock. Here's a look at a few of prevalent rock legends.

Gene Simmons' cow tongue

Simmons certainly has an abnormally long tongue, a fact emphasized by his fire-breathing, blood-spitting antics onstage. Fans have long been prompted to question whether it was actually a cow's tongue surgically added to his own, a rumor that's been debunked due to its medical impossibility. A cow's tongue is a typically a foot long, meaning there's no way one to fit even part of one in a human's mouth. Simmons says he simply has a "superlong tongue."
