I've ordered mine: [plastic Gene Simmons mask]

Got it. Wore it.Two years in a row for Halloween. 1978 and 1979. This is from '79. 10 years old and rockin' out.

That's my mom's sweater and jewelry. And a hanging plant pot chain criss-crossing my torso.

And tin foil. Lots of tin foil. And tape.

Turns out young Will Smith was right: parents just don't understand.

There wasn't really much KISS merchandise over here. Still isn't. Sure, I've imported some at times (often at great cost), but it's very rare to see KISS merchandise on these shores.

Here's an interview Forbes conducted with Gene Simmons:

That was one of the more interesting interviews Gene's done in a while. Thanks for sharing that.

You're welcome!

You know, what do Gene Simmons, Stan Lee and quite a few others all have in common? In my opinion, it must be hard to interview them these days without going over old ground.

Gene Simmons has been around forever. So has Stan Lee. They have been asked every conceivable question about their careers. I know them inside out. What can an interviewer ask them now that hasn't been asked a million times before?

They're also semi-retired ("retired" would seem too inaccurate a term!). They're not doing the same amount of things as they did decades ago. So have they got much left to say?

I hope so. Sure, it's nice to get Stan Lee's view on the latest Marvel movie. Or hear Simmons discuss something contemporary. But as far as their careers are concerned, what more can they reveal which countless publications/sites haven't already revealed?

Does that make sense?

Makes sense to me... I was wondering a similar thing about Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr the other day.  How many more times can they talk about the Beatles, and bring any new insight to the table?

There's a magazine here called MOJO (a monthly music magazine). There's usually a theme each month. The Rolling Stones and the Beatles often feature. Pink Floyd, too.

As time has gone on, though, I'm buying fewer copies. When I read a Beatles feature now, or have bought a Beatles magazine, with all due respect to the writers of those articles, I feel I'm reading stuff I've already read.

The KISS KRUISE was a week or two ago and, as is custom, they broke out some pretty cool deep cuts for the shows - "Tomorrow and Tonight," "Sweet Pain," "Flaming Youth," "Is That You?," "She" and "I" amongst some of the more usual suspects.

It was just a couple days ago. But yeah, seems like they broke out some rarities.

Too much to hope, I guess, that there will be a DVD/Blu Ray release of some of these Kruise performances....

Sweet Pain and Flaming Youth would be most awesome to see live.
