Happy Birthday to everyone's favourite blood-spitting, fire breathing God Of Thunder - Gene Simmons!
Gene, Johnny Depp, Nuno & more do Rock & Roll All Nite with Sophie Simmons on backing vocals!
The new Scooby-Doo! And Kiss: Rock and Roll Mystery DVD gets an official UK release on October 26th. If you haven't seen it yet, it's a very cool feature length Scooby with some great scenes and of course great music ;-) (the Rock & Roll All Nite scene is very cool). All 4 members do voice overs and their money making merchandise-crazy manager 'Chip McGhoo' is played by none other than Doc McGhee! Great film, "kids" amongst us will love it.
Today would have been the 65th birthday of one of the worlds greatest drummers. RIP Eric.
Want to see Sara Cox, Ken Bruce, Jeremy Vine & Tony Blackburn rocking out in KISS Makeup to Crazy Nights? Of course you do!

Check out these awesome Download photos from Martin Wombwell! Full size version can be found on our Facebook page.
Just a heads-up that highlights from Download will be shown on Sky Arts on 27th/28th at 9PM.
A few nice videos from Download are starting to surface, here's a short clip of DRC from the official Download channel, a fan based video and also an official clip of Ace.
Last night KISS proved that they are still masters of Donington by closing the Download festival with yet another amazing show. Gene didn't make it to the rig due to technical difficulties, but aside from that it all went to plan, in front of 85,000 (muddy) people! The set list was very similar to Vegas with Parasite swapped for Cold Gin and no Tears Are Falling.
A superb show with hints of a full UK tour from KISS Online this morning...
