Location: I'm from São Paulo, Brazil.
How long have you been a KISS fan for and what was the first KISS record you heard? I've been a KISS fan since 1983, when they played their last show here in São Paulo with make up on their CREATURES OF THE NIGHT - 10th Anniversary Tour. The first record I heard was CREATURES OF THE NIGHT.
What was the first bit of KISS merch you bought? It was a LICK IT UP t-shirt
What is your favourite piece you own, and which is the most rarest?
I collect KISS music only (LPs, CDs, Cassettes, 12", 7"), not merchandise. I think my favourite pieces are The Brazilian 6-lp boxed set and THE ORIGINALS 1974 - 1979. They're just beautiful. I also like the Brazilian 1974 / 1975 4 song singles. I think the rarest items I have are Más Caliente que el Infierno, the Argentine 1980's version of HOTTER THAN HELL. It's really rare. Also the PSYCHO CIRCUS picture disc. Really wanted by collectors, as well as the complete version of THE ORIGINALS II. Also rare is the complete promo white label version of The ORIGINALS. And the item of which I'm the only owner - my KISS tattoo.
What KISS rarity would you most like to add to your collection? Any Dutch picture disc or Japanese white label release. I'd also like to have the white label version of THE ORIGINALS.
What does your family or partner think of your KISS obsession? My wife thinks it's sane. She respects it a lot. Thanks God (lol)
