Paul, 10 years - congrats.

Through this site have met some great people, have seen KISS tribute bands and enriched my life.

It was 1998 when I logged on - after someone told me of a trip going to NYC on the Psycho Circus.

Thanks for your hard work, patience, discipline and your dedication.

As you say KISS has been scarce in the UK - but through this site - we have been well informed.

Yours rockingly KISS

Congrats & THANK YOU Paul! :D

You've done a great job keeping us all informed.... and, on a personal note, have helped no end in your support of Dressed To Kill! 8)

Keep up the great work buddy..... and, who knows, maybe KISS will get their collective butts over here?!? ;)

Congrats Paul, you've done an amazing job for a decade. Believe me, I know how hard it is to keep the motivation going in order to keep a website up to snuff, and it must be doubly hard when news has been a bit thin on the ground for the past however long!

I think I first logged-on in around the end of 1996 while on holiday in Australia. Maybe it was 1997 while I was there too, but I certainly remember the Mirro coverage! It was a diet of KISSin' UK, KISS Otaku, and KISS Asylum. K-UK was always cool because of the almost exclusively British KISS news (obviously!)

In just the same way as KISS Crazy, the old fanzine, used to keep a small but energetic community together, I genuinely believe that K-UK picked up the baton. Accept of course, you can tune in here from anywhere in the world there's internet access...

Very best wishes for the future young man (though 10 years older!).

Well done on 10 years of sterling service to us UK Kiss fans, Paul.

We should all have a whip round and get you a nice bottle of KISS wine to celebrate!!

Like everyone says - well done Paul.

Thanks to your site and associated mailing list, and now this forum, I have been very lucky to make some truly good friends.

Thanks a million for all the messages, I really appreciate it. Thanks also to everyone who has submitted stuff to the site whether that be photos, reviews, news or just emails.

Another 10 years? That'd be nice, just wonder what the line-up will be by then.....

Thanks again!

Indeedie, and having visited some of the other KISS sites around the world this one has to be one of the friendliest. Well done Paul ;)
