Hello everybody in U.K.
Im Irish (yeah I know) living in Germany. Today we started another try to get Kiss back to Europe, by writing personal letters to Gene Simmons. Whole Germany is at it.It would be great if the U.k. and Irish fans could help us out. Just write a few lines and send them to me. The more letters we get, better the chances of having Kiss back to us. We need you're help. Send your letters to me and we will post them directly to Mr. Simmons. If Kiss doesn't want to kick our asses, we're gonna kick there's!!!!
It's worth a try, don't you think so??

|Thanks to everyone that
has E-mailed me about the Expo, seems like it was a huge
success. Sadly, trains from my neck of the woods are still a
joke so I had no chance of getting there, from what I've read
the Parasite / DTK team up was a big hit with everyone
that has sent in a report!
