Long, interesting interview with Eric Singer

PodKISSt #71 Jean Beauvoir Interview Part 1

TV-report from Villa Manin
It turned out, that in Udine the show was at a sort of square with private houses ON the grounds. The people that lived there could just walk everywhere & they just 'invaded' the photo-session Kiss did with some people! Nobody had any overview on that. There was not enuff security, so extra security was hired for the next day.

Set list from Milano

(from Sam Schlagenhaufen)
The Meet & Greet in Udine got cancelled due to unknown reasons. People who booked the Meet & Greets were promised to get their money back. They also got the Merchandise Package including a signed photo (Paul's signature was unfortunately missing).

A local crew-member tragically died after the Kiss concert in Milano when the stage was taken down. Two further local crew members got injured. More infos here.

Kiss played at the Waldbühne in Berlin yesterday. The venue holds over 22.000 people and was almost sold out. Due to the circumstances given at the Waldbühne, Gene and Paul were not able to fly or to use the spider. There was no tourbook available (??) and just a few shirts with censored logo. There was a report in ZDF Morgenmagazin, which should soon be available online. It was said, that Kiss want to come back again next year. SAT 1 Frühstücksfernsehen also did a report on Gene's visit at the Hard Rock Café in Berlin. Kiss will also be on ZDF "Leute heute" at 17:45 today. Meanwhile Paul has released a statement, that reports about him getting hurt at the concert in Copenhagen are false.

June 5, 2013
(from Something Else! Reviews)

Gene Simmons sorts through his stormy relationship with Kiss’ initial replacement for Ace Frehley, guitarist Vinnie Vincent — saying the split had less to do with artistic differences than it did with simple business.

Simmons says they originally met Vincent through songwriter Adam Mitchell, who co-wrote the title track for 1982's Creatures of the Night with Paul Stanley. “We started writing songs together, and we found out he could play guitar,” Simmons says of Vincent, in the attached video. “He sang, and he was a multi-faceted, multi-instrumentalist. He kept asking to be in the band, and we said: ‘You can’t. You’re smaller, shorter. With the front line, there’s like a thing.’”

Vincent, still going by his real name of Cusano, pressed — and eventually Simmons and Co. relented. He’d eventually be part of three Kiss studio albums, co-writing the hit title track to 1983's Lick It Up and participating in 1992's Revenge as well. But this particular marriage, like the one with Frehley before it, was not to be.

(from Yahoo)
No band has ever merged marketing and music quite so deftly as Kiss, which has lent its name and face paint to hundreds of geegaws over the years, from condoms to cremation urns for your pets. All of which pales in comparison to this inspired work of fandom, a Volkswagen Beetle transformed into a rolling tribute to Gene Simmons' bovine-quality tongue — which can rock your driveway all night for the right price.

For sale at eBay, the seller traces the car's creation to a radio station that wanted to build a special kind of promotional vehicle from a 1970 Beetle. Since then, the Kiss Bug has been given a lick of mechanical and appearance upgrades, from better seals and engine cleaning to making sure that the hair blows freely in the wind while the Bug's on the road.

Last year, the previous owner/restorer put the Bug up for sale in a half-finished condition for $10,000; the eBay bidding so far has risen to $5,300 without meeting the reserve. Whomever ends up with the keys to this rock masterpiece can comfort themselves with having a unique piece of Kiss memorabilia — even if getting behind the wheel turns them into a blown-up replica of Gene Simmons' uvula.

Somebody dropped more than $1,000 on a ’70s-era guitar pick from Ace Frehley. The tiny stage accessory owned by the Kiss guitarist recently sold for a whopping $1,178.56 on eBay.

The yellow pick, which features Frehley’s name on one side and Pastore Music on the other, was reportedly snagged by the seller’s dad during an unknown mid-’70s Kiss tour stop at the Memorial Coliseum in Fort Wayne, Ind. “He was on the floor and caught this pick,” eBay user loshe8 said. “Ace Frehley threw it out into the crowd, and my dad said he stuck his hand out, and it landed right in it!”

The only appearance in Fort Wayne by Kiss during their 1975-76 tour was on April 11, 1976. Frehley’s guitar showcase on that tour followed the ‘Dressed to Kill’ song ‘She.’

The same seller earlier auctioned off a Kiss ticket stub from the same era. “At the time, my dad wasn’t able to find this pick,” loshe8 added, “or I would have attempted to sell them both together.”
