Location: I'm from Turner, Maine, USA and I'm 44 years old
How long have you been a KISS fan and what was the first KISS record you heard? I've been a fan since i was six. The first LP I heard, and was hooked on, was ALIVE!
What was the first bit of KISS merchandise you bought? First merchandise I bought was in the '70s I had the lunch box and Remote Control Van.
What is your favourite piece you own, and which is the most rarest? Naming one single favourite item is hard as it changes all the time, but at the moment I would have to say the Pinball Machine. The rarest would be a toss up between my RC Van, Record Player or Donruss Case.
What KISS rarity would you most like to add to your collection? My best piece is definitely the KISS pinball machine. My collection has dwindled over the years. The most rare piece I've owned was a real stage-worn fire helmet I had that was owned by Jeff Hart. I'd like to get my collection back to what it was someday. In time.
What does your family or partner think of your KISS obsession? My friends think I'm nuts. My wife puts up with it. My kids love it. Some people get it, others don't. You have to have grown up on KISS to know the sickness of collecting their stuff. I prefer to collect the '70s stuff, but my collection has some new things as well
