Get well soon to Dressed To Kill's Ash who suffered 3 broken ribs in a motorbike accident. Gary Banton posted the following on our forum:-
As some of you have heard the news I thought I'd better put the facts up on here to ease your concerns....
Ash was involved in a major motorcycle accident yesterday on the M1. A VW Golf hard breaked in front of him leaving him no option but to hit the back of it. He hit the ground hard and blacked out. On coming around he had trouble breathing and was taken to hospital where they discovered he had 3 cracked ribs.
He is in a lot of pain but is on painkillers & receiving physio. He should be out by the weekend and all better within a couple of months.
No DTK gigs are under threat and he thanks you all for your concern
DJ Spoony was recently spotted on BBC's Strictly Come Dancing wearing a Gene Simmons t-shirt during practice, another closet fan??
Unfortuantely he's been booted off now...
The latest UK edition of the Simpsons comic features the KISS story first reported way back in 2004. It was penned by none other than Gene himself and features Gene as Barts real dad. Bart then becomes Bart Simpson God Of Thunder.
Lots of references to KISS songs, but then what else would you expect from Gene? There's also stories by Alice Cooper, Rob Zombie and Pat Boone.
Former Kiss guitarist Vinnie Vincent has lost a US Supreme Court appeal in a royalties dispute with the rock group, according to the Associated Press.
Vincent - real name Vincent Cusano - was part of the band's line-up from 1982 and 1984 and co-wrote songs for its 1983 album Lick It Up.
He was dismissed from the band but later returned to contribute material to 1992 release Revenge.
