KISS ARMY -
I was digging through some boxes in my KISS room this weekend and came across these photos, buried away because they represent one of the very few "bad" experiences that I have had with KISS.
2006, Gene Simmons was appearing at the Oxford Valley Mall to promote the new KISS cologne.
I was fourth or fifth in line, having waited all day. After Gene appreared on stage, moments before the line started to move, an announcement was made that Gene would "only sign the cologne bottles"... nothing else!
Everyone had cool things for Gene to sign: vintage photos, tour books, posters, and more, but we were told that we couldn't even bring those items on stage with us or we would be thrown out of the line.
As you can see in the photos, I was so angry that I argued with Gene about it. Not my finest moment. And yes, if you were there, you were probably one of the people boooo-ing me for holding up the line.
I tried, KISS ARMY. I tried.
