Seldom do bands come along that leave such an indelible mark on popular culture. During the 1970s KISS redefined what it meant to "entertain" people with their bombastic live performances and larger than life personalities. And the merchandising... During the 1980s the band fought for survival as internal strife and external competition forced an attempt to reinvent themselves. The early 1990s had seen KISS make one final gesture to be a relevant musical force, but this did not translate into the demanded success. Instead the band started looking to the past and played their final "Ace" card. Volume 3, "Roar of Greasepaint" picks up the history as they attempted to record a Reunion studio album, and the disjointed soap-opera that followed and continues. The "KISS Album Focus" is an objective look at the history of "the hottest band in the world" that destroys some KISS urban legends and confirms others.

People receiving the deluxe editon of season one of Gene Simmons “Family Jewels” are receiving an audio treat. The package includes a bonus CD with two songs expected to be featured on Gene’s “MONSTER: THE GENE SIMMONS BOX SET.” The version of “You’re My Reason For Living” varies slightly from that released in 2003 on Gene’s “Sex Money KISS” audio book lunch box and Japanese version of “Asshole.” While it has more prominent drums, it lacks some of the electric guitar over-dubs and is 17 seconds longer, though most of that is the result of a longer fade-out.”

The second song is previously unreleased. “Rain Keeps Fallin’” is previously known as a song Gene demoed with members of Silent Rage around 1991. Several different lyrical versions of the song exist. Most interesting, perhaps, the riff at the start of this song can also be heard in a studio jam session with Dutch rockers Sleeze Beeze from around 1990/1 where Gene was working with the band on using his “Daily Planet” riff. They’d come up with the song “Jealous Woman” from the efforts, though the band didn’t use it. This is a great example of Gene and his creativity. “Rain Keeps Fallin’” was being developed during the COS sessions, with one September 1993 re-write being known with interesting lyrics such as “Burning crosses in my own back yard” and “My name’s on a cool headstone with a pretty rose.”

(from Kissonline)
QUESTION: Hi Tommy, How are you? Myself - I am having KISS withdrawals!! What have you been up to since KISS last played in the summer? Do you see your band mates when your off the road? Best --- James Nichols, Boise, Idaho

ANSWER (Tommy): I stay busy with KISS oriented projects; the main one in the past year has been KISSOLOGY. There's always enough going on in the world of KISS, and particularly new developing projects that I keep an eye on, to stay busy when KISS isn't touring. I see the guys regularly, although everybody's busy with a million different things.

QUESTION: Hey Tommy, I'd like to know if you had a chance to see Paul play on the LIVE TO WIN Tour. If so, what did you think of the show? I caught 3 shows myself and I have to tell you I was very impressed with Paul and the band. --- Rich Madden, Tempe, Arizona

ANSWER (Tommy): I saw Paul's show in Hollywood at HOB and it was fantastic. I actually went to several of his rehearsals pre-tour to check things out too.

QUESTION: Hi Tommy!!! KISSOLOGY rules!! Were you involved in the first part at all? Will you be involved in future volumes? What did you think of Volume 1? Thanks. --- Thomas Powell, Muncie, Indiana

ANSWER (Tommy): I've been involved with KISSOLOGY from the start. Vol. 1 has sold huge numbers already and was recently certified quadruple-platinum for sales. It's an essential to the collection of any KISS fan. Alex & Roger Coletti have done a great job producing and editing the footage and they've done their work in New York. I worked together with the Colettis on the creative and conceptual side and made sure they get everything they need from KISS to make a phenomenal product. Vol. 2 and Vol. 3 are forthcoming in 2007/08 and even more is in the planning stages after that.

Hi Tommy, I am somewhat of a new KISS fan, my first show was at Chumash Casino and what a show it was!! The next day I bought every KISS CD I could find. What was your first KISS memory that you recall? Thank You! ---Denise McFaren, Abington, MA

ANSWER (Tommy): The great thing about the in-your-face exclusivity of a show like Chumash, is not only is it a rare opportunity to see KISS in such an environment, but the band gets off on the energy just as much as the fans do. My first KISS-memory was leafing through the pages of Circus-Raves magazine at a local grocery store sometime in 1974 and discovering a live review of this incredible new shocking band.

QUESTION: Tommy, Your KISS show on TV here in Japan was great. You and the band looked like you had much fun at the FUJI Show. I think this was one of your best shows in Japan. Do you have good feelings about this show? Thank you --- Aito Yamamoto, Nagoya, Japan

ANSWER (Tommy): I saw a copy of the Fuji show broadcast from NHK TV in Japan and it was kickin.' When we were standing side-stage right before our intro, it was raining sideways and we looked at each other and thought, well this should be interesting. Japan tours and particularly the Japanese KISS fans are some of the best in the world, always GREAT.

Someone, who ordered the DVD in Japan has received the following message:

"We just received a notice from the label (Universal Music) that they cancelled the release of the item below which was included with your order.

Lick It Up - The Definitive

Therefore, we needed to cancel it from your order.

At this time, there is no indication to show that it might be released later in the future."

(from DVD talk)

The Show
There isn't much new under the reality TV sun and anyone who thinks otherwise is only deluding themselves -- every new show to hit the air and follow around "fill in the blank" is a copy of a copy of a copy; so it goes with the A&E program Gene Simmons Family Jewels, which debuted in August 2006 -- it's hard not to consider this half-hour a near-blatant rip-off of "The Osbournes," but where Ozzy and company stumble around heaving frozen turkeys and swearing at bubble machines, Gene Simmons, his partner of two-plus decades Shannon Tweed and his kids, Nick and Sophie, are down-to-earth, startlingly normal folks. Well, as normal as the family of a fire-breathing, blood-spitting, face-painted Seventies rock god can be.

It's not groundbreaking, but it is entertaining -- and thankfully not in the creepy voyeuristic sense that pervaded "The Osbournes" as that show wound down. Gene and Shannon are two people whose parenting skills are admirable, rather than dumfounding, which drains a lot of potential drama from the series, making the Simmons clan more affable and friendly than probably 90 percent of those who ever make it onto a reality show. Interspersing interviews with the Simmons family (and Shannon's wacky sister Tracy) amid footage of the family going about their daily routines -- from attending the Adult Video News Awards to signing up for facelifts -- Gene Simmons Family Jewels embraces its stereotypical nuclear family tropes and exploits them to great effect. This quartet is affecting, goofy and compulsively watchable; it wasn't hard for me to breeze through all 13 half-hour (actually closer to 22 minutes) episodes in just a few sittings.

Over the course of this first season, a multitude of little plot lines develop and play out, most notably building to a finale that culminates in a genuine cliffhanger, which ties together many of the show's themes in a surprising fashion. Sure, a lot of what you see onscreen is manipulated and planned (as evidenced by the supplements) but the people involved in the situations are real, which helps Gene Simmons Family Jewels rise above what is quickly becoming a pop culture slur: reality TV. You don't have to be a foot soldier in the KISS Army to enjoy Gene Simmons Family Jewels -- but I'm betting it wouldn't hurt.

A&E has packaged the first season of Gene Simmons Family Jewels in a two-disc keepcase with no insert (although an episode guide is easily locatable on the network's Web site). Seven episodes are on the first disc, with the remaining six episodes plopped on disc two, along with the bulk of the special features.


The Video:
Presented as originally broadcast in 1.33:1 fullscreen, Gene Simmons Family Jewels looks OK, but not as sharp as it probably could -- there's a lot of softness and occasional fuzzy edginess to the image, which detracts from an otherwise defect-free presentation. The interview segments are presented in non-anamorphic widescreen and also suffer from the fleeting image defects. It's surprisingly that a show so recently broadcast would look less than stellar.

The Audio:
Again, as originally broadcast, Gene Simmons Family Jewels arrives on DVD sporting a perfectly adequate Dolby 2.0 stereo soundtrack that conveys all the laughter, lamentations and looniness in crystal clear fashion. Occasionally, forced English subtitles will assist the sequences that feature dismal dialogue volume, but those are few and far between.

The Extras:
Supplementally speaking, there are those who might feel bummed that the Simmons family doesn't contribute any commentary tracks, but given that, uh, the entire show revolves around them talking, it's not terribly surprising that the foursome didn't sit for a chat. What is on hand, however, is worth sifting through. On the first disc, the lone extra is a 22 minute, 35 second "rough cut" of the pilot, titled "Happily Unmarried," which suffers even more so from iffy image quality. The second disc contains the meat of the bonus features with a handful of featurettes, playable separately or all together: the 11 minute, 19 second "The Unseen Couch Interviews"; the 14 minute, three second "Inside The Demons Lair with Gene"; the three minute, 52 second "Gene's History of Rock and Roll"; the four minute, 39 second "Bloopers"; the six minute, 51 second "Behind the Makeup" and the 10 minute, five second "Gene Simmons: 24/7." It's probably worth pointing out that for diehard soldiers in the KISS Army, a "Signature Series" edition of this set exists: in addition to what's on the DVDs, it comes with a 20-page hardcover family photo album, a bonus CD with two songs from a forthcoming Gene Simmons boxed set and a DVD containing the Gene Simmons "Biography" episode.

Final Thoughts:
It's hard not to consider Gene Simmons Family Jewels a near-blatant rip-off of "The Osbournes," but where Ozzy and company stumble around heaving frozen turkeys and swearing at bubble machines, Gene Simmons, his partner of two-plus decades Shannon Tweed and his kids, Nick and Sophie, are down-to-earth, startlingly normal folks. Well, as normal as the family of a fire-breathing, blood-spitting, face-painted Seventies rock god can be. Recommended.

Canadian all-girl metal band KITTIE has changed the name of its record label to X of Infamy from the previously announced Kiss of Infamy after reportedly receiving a cease-and-desist letter from attorneys representing Kiss Catalog Ltd. (the owner of the intellectual property rights pertaining to the musical group KISS) alleging that the Kiss of Infamy mark appeared to be "confusingly similar" to their client's mark.

All "Best Buy" stores in the US were supposed to have 2 Bonus Tracks (2.000 man & God of thunder) on the "Alive! 1975 - 2000" Box set. It even mentioned those on the sticker on the box set. But indeed none of those Box sets sold at "Best buy" had those tracks. Universal Music now printed extra discs with these 2 tracks and ships them to all "Best buy" stores. After next week people can get one of those for free with a receipt of purchase of the "Alive! Box set" at a "Best buy" store. It is yet unknown, how those Bonus Tracks will be brought to those people, who ordered it online at "Best buy"...
