|26th March 2003 Gene Simmons Tongue #4|
latest issue of Gene's Tongue magazine arrived this morning,
KISS wise there's very little in it apart from the usual
punisher/condom adverts, and a small report on the drag racing
in Vegas that Paul & Gene attended. There's interviews
with Jack Nicholson, Shannon Elizabeth, Chuch Zito and Travis
Tritt (who??) amongst others.. and a very boring cover featuring
Jack - I thought the whole point of this was that the people on
the cover would always have their tongue out in a Gene Simmons
|Help needed for UK tribute|
|A UK KISS fan is trying
hard to set up a new tribute band, the details are as follows,
if anyone can help please contact Trevor direct:-
The band is provisionally called Hotter than Hell and will definitely
be make-up focusing mainly on the 70's era music. I am based in Sussex and
looking at musicians aged around 20-40, preferably in the South East but I
am willing to be pretty flexible so long as they are genuine KISS fans and
committed to making this a REALLY good band. They can e-mail me at
or call me on 07765 056792.

KISS and AEROSMITH are set to kick off a three-month U.S. tour beginning on the East Coast in August. KISS will reportedly open every show, and there may be a third act added, according to www.eddietrunk.com. As was the case at the group's most recent Japanese dates, guitarist Tommy Thayer will perform Ace Frehley's parts at the concerts, which will apparently include two dates each at PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, New Jersey and in Jones Beach, New York. No officially confirmed dates have yet been announced, although the web site of the Post-Gazette Pavilion in Burgettstown, Pennsylvania is currently listing the AEROSMITH/KISS concert there on August 21.

|One of the Sunday rags
has recently printed an article on Di Fabrizio, KISS' offical
"...The worlds greatest rock acts still keep Di Fabrizio busy. He's the offical bootmaker for KISS. "KISS' boots take the longest. Everybody says, "My God, eight-inch heels", but we make shoes they can perform in. They weigh 20lbs and cost $3,000 a pair - but KISS have made millions with these shoes, it's about time they gave me some of it!'"

following article appeared in Saturdays edition of The Mirror,
thanks to Phil Jocelyn for sending it in:-
"Here's a subtle blend of two cultures. This Melbourne Symphony Orchestra musician obviously wanted to fit in with the band they were backing - heavy metal outfit Kiss.
