How long have you been a KISS fan for, what was the first KISS record you heard? Since 1975-76. The first record I heard was ALIVE!
What was the first bit of KISS merchandise you bought? Can't remember, but I do still have my KISS trash can I bought way back then. But it was probably records. I have always had a thing for vinyl.
What is your favourite piece you own, and which is the most rarest? Favourite is the Pinball Machine. The rarest is tough, I have an ALIVE II misprint, Black Box from SOLO LP era, Guitar built by the late Steve Carr and signed by Paul Stanley.
What KISS rarity would you most like to add to your collection? I had a Toy Microphone in the box but sold it twelve years ago for $1500 and the Toy Guitar in box I sold for $2500 a few years ago - so I would like to have those back, but the right price would have to come along
What do your family or partner think of your obsession? My wife is also a KISS fan and enjoys looking at all the items on display. My brother is also a collector and my parents used to think I was nuts until they saw the amounts I sold those two earlier-mentioned items for. I have met the band a few times and had items signed to me like my original Mego dolls in the boxes, I never got to meet Eric Carr that is one thing I wish I could have done.
