my Kiss-story: I read about KISS for the first time in 1975(Dressed to Kill album release) and bought the album the next day. That was 26 years ago and I am still as passionate about KISS as when I heard the first tune (room service).
Many of my "greatest moments" in life are direct and indirect related to KISS, to a point where I feel more than a fan or collector. If you stick with something for 26 years, well than it's safe to say that KISS is part of your life........While I'm sadly anticipating their "final show", nothing can take away the memories, the experience and the many friendships I've build over the years (or as my wife would call it "my other family"...)! I for one will never be disappointed, no matter what they do, no ma
tter what they say. I have a lot to be thankfull for and I'm proud about how KISS has managed to bring me happiness for the past 26 years!
Kiss tattoos: none
comment: Anyone interested in KISS cover magazines should drop me a line. I have nearly 2,000 titles in my collection and am always looking to add one more!!
