25 years ago today, one week after KISS destroyed Donington ’96, I started a website dedicated to my favourite band. A few pages of HTML soon developed into something much bigger that became a large part of my spare time. Over the years I've been fortunate enough to interview band members, attend back stage events, press conferences, after show parties, The One Show, London Business School and much more.

I was lucky enough to interview Mark St John before he sadly passed away. I've also had the chance to speak with both Ace Frehley & Peter Criss and was invited to take some KISS merchandise onto The One Show to meet with Gene Simmons & Shannon Tweed. I've also met with guitar & drum gods Bruce, Eric & Tommy.

There’s been times when I was able to present some drum sticks from Eric Singer to Luke, a huge fan, at a charity event. Several years later he was then invited to attend a meet & greet courtesy of the band!

Couples have met via the site (now with children!) and I've made many, many friends along the way.

25 years is a long time, lots has changed but it couldn't have carried on without the help of all my good friends & family and every single person who has contacted me through the site over the years. Who knows how long is left, the world has changed, web sites are less important than they were and the band are on another farewell tour. Will the web still exist in another 25 years? Who knows, but it’s been fun.

Last night KISS kicked off their End Of The Road world tour again with a show in Mansfield, MA. Nice to see them back on the stage where they belong!
