How long have you been a KISS fan for and what was the first KISS record you heard? I have been a KISS fan since 1978, ever since my uncle John showed me the 1978's ACE FREHELY LP in his room at my grandma's house.
What was the first bit of KISS merch you bought? My first piece of KISS merchandise that was ever bought for me was a t-shirt with an iron on Peter Criss picture on the front of it in 1978 (right).
What is your favourite piece you own, and which is the most rarest? I think my favourite pieces are my autographed ROCK'N'ROLL OVER LP, followed VERY closely my the picture of Peter Criss and I taken on March 23, 2013 at Mad Monster Party in Charlotte, North Carolina. Then it's followed by my custom 12-inch Peter Criss, Eric Carr & Eric Singer. My rarest piece is gonna have to be my 1977 LOVE GUN poster (folded) that is signed to me by Peter Criss.
What KISS rarity would you most like to add to your collection? The KISS' CRISS Pearl Drums poster from 1975.
What does your family or partner think of your KISS obsession? My three kids think I am absolutely crazy because I listen to, what they call "old men who paint their faces with makeup" and my fiancee cannot understand why I have to have so much KISS merchandise. Other than that they are okay with my collecting, because they know how much KISS means to me, both personally and musically.
