Location: La Spezia, Italy.
How long have you been a KISS fan for and what was the first KISS record you heard? When the Phantoms KISS film was broadcast in Italian cinemas, a free sticker was given to the audience. My aunt was one of those. At the time I was six years old and spent hours and hours looking at the sticker attached to the desk of my aunt. My little friends looked at Superman, Spider-man and the Fantastic Four, in a short time my Super Heroes had become KISS !!! The first song I heard was “Detroit Rock City”, while my first KISS record was KILLERS
What was the first bit of KISS merch you bought? Probably some stickers or pins. There were not many KISS items available at that time here in Italy.
What is your favourite piece you own, and which is the most rarest? My favourite piece is the Phantoms movie free sticker from which my Kiss-mania began (a mint one is framed and hung in the wall of my room). I currently have more than 1300 different KISS LPs and about 300 singles from all over the world. The rarest is probably the HOTTER THAN HELL test pressing housed in the original hand-written cover !!
What KISS rarity would you most like to add to your collection? Many, many records and singles still wanted !! I’d also like some original stage used items and find some space for a Bally Pinball machine in working condition.
What does your family or partner think of your KISS obsession? They have had to adapt.
