From KNAC.com:-
"Just got a call this afternoon stating that my friend, former Kiss guitarist Mark St. John, died this morning from a cerebral hemorrage. He was 51."

This is very sad news indeed, those of you who went to the expo in 2003 will know just how nice a guy he was. He even went out of his way to let me do an interview with him, after asking if we could go grab a pizza first! Believe it or not Mark is one of the ex-members of KISS that I recieve most mail about, partly because he kept himself to himself and his past friends found it difficult to track him down.

All of us at KISSin' UK send our deepest condolences to Mark's family.

For those interested, the interview Mark kindly gave up some time to do can be read here.
