|26th September 2001 More on Doc|
|I have another small
piece of news about Doc McGhee's appearance at the In The City
festival this Sunday. It appears that Doc will be talking at the
Alexandra 1 from 17:30 until 19:00. If anybody plans on going
please let me know.
|It appears that the box set may have been put back a month until December, however I have received this first picture of it, whether the final release will look like this isn't known. This was featured in a Hilton Honors catalogue in the USA, the price quoted on the advert was $69.98 + postage, although as there are now 5 cd's instead of 4 the price will probably go up. Thanks to Bruzman for the info.|

|18th September 2001 Eric Carr in Modern Drummer|
mentioned a couple of months ago a tribute article to Eric Carr
has now been released in the latest issue of Modern Drummer
magazine. The article was written by John Connell who quite
rightly says "I am letting people know because E.C. had a lot of fans that would love to
see his memory receive the attention". The issue is
available on newsstands in the US now and should be available in
the UK soon.
|DTK Wrexham gig|
Dan bach along with Carole from Flexsys are busily trying to promote the DTK gig in Wrexham on Friday 2nd November. Below is an E-mail from Carole, if anyone is interested in going please contact her to obtain tickets.
[From: Carole, Flexsys]
The Flexsys venue itself is not in the town of Wrexham... it is in-between Wrexham (about 6 miles - it's quite a good shopping town) & Llangollen (about 4 miles - more of a tourist town)... so unless you manage to get Bed & Breakfast more local (there's 1 or 2, but not many - I can enquire, if anyone wants), then I'm afraid it'd be a Taxi to the Venue or Drive (which would be a shame because our beer is Cheep!!!). However, if it is needed & once I know how many would be interested... I will hastle some people locally & see what sort of deal I can get on Taxi's or a mini bus or whatever is needed!
I'm getting carried away now - aren't I (just a little)... but seriously, if
anyone needs more info on the show or anything, from "Please make sure
there's plenty of JD's in the Bar" (Don't worry that's sorted) to any info
on the area or anything you may need, then please just let me know... I'm
more than happy to try and help!
|17th September 2001 T-shirt project|
My daughter Lizzy is designing t-shirt for gcse graphics and she has picked kiss to be her design and part of her course work is to do market research in the form of a questionnaire asking fans what they look for in a kiss t-shirt. She asked me to email you and ask if you could put our email address on the KISSin' UK page for fans to contact us to be emailed the questionnaire. I will also send photo of the t-shirt when she has finished it to see what you think. So far she has had some great designs. The email address for contacting us is email@example.com.
|15th September 2001 Lack of updates|
Sorry for the last of
updates, I've been too busy with the pubs in Devon over the last
week. Obviously, huge sympathies go out to all our American
readers and to anybody else touched by the New York disaster.
I'm sure I can talk on behalf of a lot of UK KISS fans when I
say we are all thinking of you.

|Gene & Paul meeting at Rock Star premier|
I just got back from the premier of the movie "Rock Star" in Westwood, California. I heard rumors that Gene and Paul might show up at the premier, so I contacted some friends and was able to get a ticket to the premier. To my surprise they both did show up. The premier started at 8:00 P.M. and right at 8:00 P.M. both Gene and Paul came walking into the lobby of the theater. When they entered, they walked directly to their seats. I was sitting several rows in front of them. There were several people with them, one being Shannon Tweed. After Gene and Paul sat down, I approached them and asked Gene if he would sign my 1977 Marvel Comic Book (see picture, click on it to enlarge). I was wearing a Kiss shirt and he told me that he liked the shirt. He signed the comic book and without me asking, passed it down to Paul who was sitting several seats away. Paul also signed the book and gave it back to me. I told Gene that I had seen them 9 times in the U.S. and 5 times in Australia during this tour. He made an expression like he was impressed. He then shook my hand and again said that he liked the Kiss shirt that I was wearing. After the premier was over, Gene and Paul were standing in the lobby. They both allowed me to take several photographs with them while they talked to friends. They were both very cool and humble. It was a dream come true meeting the legends of rock and roll. Thank you Gene and Paul.
