Location: Born in the Bronx N.Y about a mile from where Ace grew up, but I live in Charlotte NC
How long have you been a KISS fan for and what was the first KISS record you heard? KISS fan since Sep 1976
What was the first bit of KISS merch you bought? First piece I purchased was the lunch box w/thermos from good ol’ Woolworth.
What is your favourite piece you own, and which is the most rarest? I have many favourites but if I had to pick out one it would have to be my autographed boots. They may be replicas but I never thought in a million years that I would own such an item. Plus, I got them autographed personally by Paul and Ace (Who wouldn’t love that?!)
What KISS rarity would you most like to add to your collection? It may not be the rarest, but the oldest item I have is a New York Times 1976 concert ad for the Roosevelt Stadium show in NJ. The one thing I would like to add to my collection and I am sure it’s on top of everyone’s list is a 70’s pinball machine (more like a dream). But a more attainable thing would be the Ace Frehley sunburst signature guitar.
What does your family or partner think of your KISS obsession? When I was young, my family wouldn’t dare go into my room because they were scared of KISS and didn’t understand my obsession. Right now, my wife thinks I am nuts but she supports me 100% and loves that I have such a passion for something (she lets me use the first room you see in the house as my KISS room. Now if that’s not support, I don’t know what is!)
