KISS Army Founder Bill Starkey On The Truth About His Story, True KISS Fans, His Experiences 38 Years Ago and Much More

By John Parks

Bill Starkey founded the KISS Army 38 years ago today. Bill is now a school teacher for inner city kids in Indianapolis and his life is a success with or without his KISS experience, but it was absolutely an experience. Can you imagine going onstage with the band? Or being able to make a phone call and pretty much get any piece (or twenty) of KISS Army merch you wanted? Pretty cool stuff but before KISS, Bill was truly a normal Indiana kid in the 1970s. His dad worked at the Columbia House Music Club (a pretty cool story in of itself) and brought home some KISS records, proceeding to set forth this chain of events that led to Bill becoming the most famous KISS fan ever. 38 years after he and his friends started the KISS Army, people still recognize Bill and remember the story (in various formats, more on that…) and I wanted to talk with him about it all, read on…

Legendary Rock Interviews: Hi Bill, thanks for talking to us. I, like everyone else, know you as the original KISS Army guy and you’re well versed on that classic era but I wanted to start by asking you about the band’s most recent work. What did you think of Monster, for instance?

Bill: I really like it, I do and I don’t have a dog in the fight so to speak, KISS isn’t going to leave me backstage passes or tickets but I liked the album. I also bought the remastered Destroyer and thought that was just amazing, I heard things on there that I’ve never heard before so if you haven’t picked that up I suggest you do. I’m not one of those people who goes out and buys everything the band puts their name on, god bless those people who can do that and afford it and their house is swamped with that stuff. I’m pretty discrete about my KISS collection, it’s modest and a lot of it is music but I do enjoy those Monster and Destroyer CD’s.
