MESSAGE FROM BRUCE KULICK
(from kulick.net)
Hello everyone! Had a great week of travel with Grand Funk. First stop was the nation's Capitol, Washington DC. We were the classic rock entertainment (we did 4 songs) on Veterans Day for a very unique and wonderful cause. "Fight Night" is a huge charity event that donates money to needy children in the DC area under the name "Fight For Children".

The famous Washington Hilton hotel's ballroom, where many Presidents have spoken and the hotel infamously known for the attempt on President Reagan's life in 1981, was an amazing venue for the event. And it was a real boxing ring where we performed! It was smokey from the cigars, and tons of babes in gowns were around as "arm candy" for the big shots in their tuxes.

GENE SIMMONS GETS CREATIVE WITH MARKETING
(from The Gazette)
Despite years of blood-spitting, fire-breathing, and salacious tongue waggling, Gene Simmons is probably not the Antichrist.  But the legendary KISS bassist, reality TV star, and marketing mastermind might be channeling Mammon, the demon of wealth, or perhaps whatever Horseman of the Apocalypse rides the most expensive thoroughbred. At least, that's the impression he seems to playfully cultivate in interviews and his long-running A&E reality show Gene Simmons Family Jewels, as he shrewdly and pragmatically discusses dollars and cents with a devilishly sharp wit, and one eyebrow perpetually arched above impenetrably dark sunglasses.
