How long have you been a KISS fan for, what was the first KISS record you heard? I've been a KISS Freak since I was 10 yrs old in 1974. 35 long years! KISS (The first LP) was the first record I listened to.
What was the first bit of KISS merchandise you bought? I don't remember what the first piece I bought was. It was most likely a poster or magazine
What is your favourite piece you own, and which is the most rarest? Favorite piece is a tie between the pinball machine and the KISS Phono. Rarest piece? Excellent copy of the record FIRST KISS LAST LICKS. Most sources say 500-800 copies but I've seen somewhere Gene stated that it's in the less than 500 range. I also have a strange copy of DOUBLE PLATINUM that is pictured in my collection photos and I am trying to find out more about it. Plain white sleeve with logos and pics with no other writing...odd! Not jaw dropping pieces like I've seen but that's the best I could come up with.
What KISS rarity would you most like to add to your collection? An original concert poster from a show very early in their career.
What do your family or partner think of your obsession? Some family members quietly think it's odd, some like it (or pretend), but the wife digs it! She too is a collector (not KISS).
