Just wanted to share a Polaroid from 1980 at my home in Melbourne, Australia. Kiss formed the year I was born 1973. I was 7 in this pic and it was taken before putting on a Kiss concert for my family in the backyard. My 2 cousins and sister made up the rest of the group. My first concert was Kiss at VFL park in the same year 1980. Not a bad first concert to go to. I have always enjoyed performing. Kiss made it possible for me to perform on stage as an actor and musician. Music is a massive part of my life. I still play guitar and I also do standup comedy. I think Paul Stanley is indirectly responsible for my standup career from listening to him on the Alive! album chatting to the audience. The first album I had was Dynasty which was huge in Australia. I immediately was hooked by everything you did and then bought your first album followed by Alive! The rest is kisstory. I still like to put the makeup on now and again, like if I?€™m going down to the convenience store to buy a loaf of bread.
I had tickets to your final Tour on Australia that got canceled due to Paul?€™s sore throat. I hope to get tickets to the rescheduled Melbourne concert. I would really love to meet you in person and will be bringing my daughter who is also a fan of you guys and music. She?€™s a way more talented musician than myself.
Hope to catch you guys for one last time. That would bookend the first and last time you played in Australia.
