As some of you know I was off work for a month due to an operation recently. Well, check out this 'Get well soon' message that I got through the post, cool or what! It came courtesy of Dan Bach so huge thanks to him.

Rich SawyerIt’s Rich Sawyer, I wanted to personally THANK each and every one who took time to wish me well after I had my accident last year

As you may or may not know this left me with a broken back.

Thankfully, I’m on the road to recovery now and I hope to be back behind those drums again, sooner rather than later!

I want to thank the guys in’ Dressed to Kill’ for their support & to let them know ‘I miss you’..

Thank Danny my old partner in crime for all his hard work and efforts

Finally to my wife & family for always believing and for never giving in!

I LOVE YOU ALL

Keep Kissin’

Rich

 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.

 

 Bill Baker, a KISS fan since his teen years, became friends with Ace Frehley and was also his guitar and amp tech from 1990 to 1995, just opened his site: http://www.theacefrehleyarchive.com 

Bill, who also during that time fronted his own tribute band, "Fractured Mirror", the only non-makeup Ace Frehley Tribute Band to ever have surfaced! He obtained many one-of-a-kind items directly from the Space Ace that he would display at Kiss Conventions. His story is shown in the film "Kiss Loves You" that will be coming out on DVD soon. He's been working on a 124 page color photo book showing off his collection of images and memorabilia titled: "Ace Frehley: The Ultimate Fan Scrapbook". This book is tentatively due out sometime late in 2007.

Bill will also be a special guest at the 21st Annual NY Kiss Expo on May 5th, 2007. Check out http://www.theacefrehleyarchive.com for more information and to visit this "playground for Ace fans".

 My name is Thierry, I live in France and I'm a long time KISS fan. I met Eric CARR in 1988, [click here] I think you already seen the model kit of his drum kit in the KISStory book and in the KISS my ass video. Now I create my company, a toy collector company. I come back with a project with the agreement of Loretta CARAVELLO, Eric's sister.
