Location: Dallas, Texas, USA
How long have you been a KISS fan for and what was the first KISS record you heard? 36 years (and I attended my first KISS concert in San Antonio in 1975, I was in the 5th grade! ) and my first album I heard was ROCK AND ROLL OVER.
What was the first bit of KISS merch you bought? My KISS AM Radio.
What is your favourite piece you own, and which is the most rarest? My favourite has to be my pinball machine (It is my understanding that when I purchased mine it was the machine that was in Gilley's Dance Hall in Pasadena, TX - which is also the dance hall that "Urban Cowboy" was filmed. I still have the Pasadena gaming stickers attached! ) and the rarest would be the Tom from Eric Carr's CRAZY NIGHTS tour drum kit. Also, Ace and Paul's ice chest from Reunion tour! I also purchased the original oxygen tanks used in various tours in the 1970's. You can find these tanks on page 124 of the KISS Auction catalog.
What KISS rarity would you most like to add to your collection? Gene's codpiece from the LOVE GUN Tour.
What does your family or partner think of your KISS obsession? I have seen nearly 100 shows. I have been backstage a number of times where Gene and Paul have both signed my body (later that evening I would have their signatures tattooed). My wife thinks I'm nuts, but she loves my passion and loyalty to the KISS ARMY!!!
