The Bonus Discs in the first pressing makes it a sought after collectible item, especially the version available at Wal-Mart only, which includes 12 songs from Largo 1977. If you don't live in the USA, the only way to get it is through a friend or somewhere here...

PAUL STANLEY CHART ATTACK
Paul Stanley enters the German Top 100 Album charts next week at # 49! That's about 2.300 units sold. That is a real good position considering there was no promotional tour, no single, no video and no single interviews to promote this album. Gene's well promoted "Asshole" solo album missed the Top 100 two years ago...

PAUL STANLEY NEWS
(from Blabbermouth)
KISS guitarist/vocalist Paul Stanley performed a solo concert at Revolution in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on Monday (October 23). Check out pictures from Getty Images.

As previously reported, KISS Paul Stanley's new solo album, "Live to Win", is poised to sell between 25,000 and 30,000 copies in the United States during its first week of release to land in the Top 50 of The Billboard 200 chart. The final first-week numbers will be released on Wednesday, November 1.

"Live to Win" was released on Tuesday (October 24) via New Door Records/Universal Musical Enterprises. The CD was self-produced by Stanley, who provides lead vocals, guitar and percussion alongside a studio core of guitarist Corky James (AVRIL LAVIGNE, THE MATRIX), drummer Victor Indrizzo (BECK, MACY GRAY) and keyboardist Harry Sommerdahl (CARRIE UNDERWOOD, LINDSAY LOHAN). Also performing on the album are former KISS bandmate Bruce Kulick and guitarist John 5.

A 10-minute audio interview with Stanley, conducted recently by "Elliot in the Morning", has been made available for download at this location (MP3, 4.7 MB).

KISSOLOGY BONUS DISCS
(from Kissonline)
ABOUT THE KISSology PACKAGING & THE BONUS DISCS:

According to some extremely reliable inside sources, here's the scoop on the KISSology I packaging.

- There will be a 20 page booklet, full color, in perpetuity. With mostly unreleased photos... including a handwritten note from Paul (ala KISS MY ASS), in which he mentions Ace! The best photo, perhaps, is a shot from the infamous session for the original KISS lunch box... where the band is seen candidly standing, waiting for the photo session to begin. The booklet also features quotes taken from Gene & Paul's chapter commentary within the dvd.

- There will be a "fan piece" (like the tatoos in ALIVE II or the pop up LOVE GUN in Love Gun...) in initial pressings of KISSOLOGY VOL. 1. No one is saying what this is, other than the fact that it is an item the band hasn't offered as a collectible previously.

- YES, There will be THREE discs in the intial pressings of KISSology I... no matter which version you buy. 2 of which will be the "perpetuity" discs... as well as an additional limited edition 3rd disc. The 3rd disc will vary depending on where you buy KISSology 1. (details below)

- WHY? With the record retail marketplace becoming more competive as time marches on, retailers frequently request additional exclusive content (sometimes at specific lengths) for their stores, in exchange for significant promotional opportunities. This opportunity is of course seen as a competitive edge. Yet often this opportunity is lamely exploited with only one or two additonal songs (or downloads) per release (as seen in the weekly SUNDAY circulars)... here and there.

With this in mind, and given that everyone involved with KISSOLOGY wanted to give every fan an over the top package at an extremely fair price... the vaults were exploited, and nothing less than a 7 to 12 song disc will accompany the intial pressings of KISSology Vol 1.... and for this reason alone... KISSology should be very visible on 10/31 and beyond! In DVD terms, it will be DOUBLE PLATINUM by KISSMASS, if not sooner!! (this means more volumes, gang!)

The bonus discs in question... and where to get them?

- COBO HALL/DETROIT, MI (1/25/76) AVAILABLE AT BEST BUY. THIS SHOW IS KNOWN AS NIGHT ONE OF KISS' THREE NIGHT STAND AT COBO HALL IN JANUARY OF '76... (NIGHT TWO IS ON DISC ONE OF KISSOLOGY 1). This disc features 10 songs (minus encores) including a very rare performance of "LADIES IN WAITING" from Dressed To Kill.

- MADISON SQUARE GARDEN/NEW YORK, NY (2/18/77) Available at MOST retailers including all independent stores, Amazon.com, Bull Moose, Circuit City, FYE, Hastings, Newbury Comics, Rasputins, Target, Virgin, etc. HERE'S KISS' VERY FIRST PERFORMANCE AT MADISON SQUARE GARDEN!!! This disc features 7 songs including TAKE ME, LET ME GO ROCK N ROLL, and NOTHIN' TO LOSE.

- CAPITAL CENTRE/LARGO, MD (12/20/77) Available at WAL MART. This disc features 12 songs including Ladies Room as well as Rock and Roll All Nite.

Specific numbers for the initial pressings of these three discs were not given, but the total between the three is not expected to surpass 150,000 to 200,000 units. After these initial pressings, KISSOLOGY VOL 1 will revert back to a two disc version.

KISSOLOGY VOLUME II currently is expected to feature material from 1978 thru 1992. No word on bonus discs, if any, at this time!

OCTOBER 31ST... THE RETURN OF KISS!!! WELCOME (BACK) TO THE SHOW!

PAUL STANLEY SHOW REVIEW
(from sleazeroxx.com)
Show Date: October 24, 2006
Location: Orlando, Florida, U.S.A.
Venue: Hard Rock
Reviewer: Brutus

I must confess to not being the biggest Kiss fan there is, although I do own at least a third if not more of their sizeable record catalog. So when I saw that Paul Stanley was touring in support of his first solo album since 1978, I was interested enough to read the story but that was it. No plans were made, no tickets were purchased, I think I actually had lunch shortly thereafter. Chinese, to be specific.

A friend of mine called either later that day or later in the week, saying Paul was going solo on tour. He is a big Kiss mark from way back so I new this was up his alley. As it turns out, a stop on his Live To Win tour was going to pass through the Hard Rock in Orlando, Florida on the same day the CD of the same title was going to be released. Even more coincidentally, that was the same night as a party for his stepson's birthday. Knowing how much he loves Kiss and the members who bring the band to life, his wife suggested he ask me if I wanted to tag along with him since she'd be at her son's party (they have a great marriage). I figured what the hell? He was offering me a ticket in exchange only for driving to the show, about 50 miles or so each way. Let's see, gas at $2.15 a gallon, Jeep gets approximately 18 mpg, carry the four and divide by a left turn, and that comes to like something shy of $13. Looks like I owe him some more driving!

Since the show was Tuesday, October 24th, we would both be leaving from work and heading straight over to the Hard Rock. I usually work until at least 6 p.m., doors opened at 7:30, show started at 8 p.m., so we figured we'd get there when we could and if we missed the opening acts (if there were any), who cared? It was Paul we were going to see anyway. As it turns out, after driving over, parking, walking through the pre-park area of Universal Studios, we still managed to get to the Hard Rock, go through what little security there was, head up to the balcony, find our seats and chill, looking at the scenery before the first act started.

A local band from Orlando was given the first 20 minutes to do their thing. Megaphone, a four-piece group, was pretty good. They mixed a rock sound similar to Green Day/The Offspring with a hint of the '80s lighter pop metal like Bon Jovi. All-in-all, not bad, I could see these guys going somewhere with a decent push.

After they cleared their gear, the second band set up and took the stage. Rockets To Ruin, hailing from Atlanta, Georgia, went up next and played for a solid 30 minutes or so. These guys had the look and sound of the best 80s sleaze rock like L.A. Guns and Faster Pussycat, yet still were original enough to keep things from sounding rehashed. Just wish they had a second guitar to help fill out the sound some.

When they were done it took approximately 30 minutes or so to clear their gear and set the stage for Paul Stanley, who is being backed by the House Band from Rockstar INXS and Rockstar Supernova fame. Real close to 10 p.m. the lights dim, the music fades, the packed crowd of at least 1,500 start to amp up and out comes the man everyone's been waiting for - Paul Stanley. I was still pretty skeptical at this point, expecting a night of fancy dancing and love songs from whom I've long thought of as the weakest link in Kiss. Was I in for a pleasant surprise!

The set list was a tight, 19-song offering from Kiss' first album on up through the late 80s and both of Paul's solo albums, the '78 release and Live To Win. I don't think anything was played from a release newer than Hot In The Shade. There were the expected ballads and softer songs like "I Still Love You" and "Hide Your Heart". There was a huge surprise, at least to me, when he preceded "A Million To One" by stating that Kiss had never played this song live, somehow overlooking this gem. Paul also took the opportunity to rock with "Lick It Up", "Love Gun" and "Detroit Rock City". Offerings from the Live To Win CD were the title track, "Bulletproof", "Everytime I See You Around" and "Lift". If I had a chance to shake up the set list some, I would have dropped a song from both solo albums in favor of other songs from the Kiss Vault that hardly, if ever, see the light of day.

I was enthralled the whole night long. Going into this show I almost saw it as a personal challenge between me and Paul. I was going to be skeptical and he was going to have to prove me wrong each song he played. He more than put me in my place. The venue was everything it has ever been - great lighting, great sound, and, for my first time in the balcony, great seats too. Paul Stanley and the House Band were everything and more than I hoped I could even settle for. Seeing as how Paul has a day job already, if the House Band ever lands a lead singer then watch out! They will definitely be going places.

I could go on for many more words just lauding Paul Stanley's performance, but I'll wrap it up with this last thought. I'm old enough to have been around when Kiss first hit the scene, and it wasn't much later around the Rock And Roll Over or Hotter Than Hell records that I started to listen to them as a kid. I very distinctly remember those two releases specifically because they were on 8-track, and I recall how odd it was to have to wait during the middle of a song for it to move from one track to the next. The point being, the voice I heard sucking me into his performance that night was the same as I recalled it from the early 70s and every other album thereafter. For a man into his 50s, living rock and roll for well over 30 years, his voice was as strong as ever and not once did I catch any idea that he was half-assing a song, a verse, or even a single note.

I still don't have a lot of respect for the entity known as Kiss, and perhaps that's Gene Simmon's fault for seemingly taking it past the music that used to matter to just being a way to make money. But I left the Hard Rock that Tuesday night with a huge amount of respect for Paul Stanley as a performer. The benchmark test that matters most to me is that I'd go back and experience it all over again in a heartbeat.

PETER CRISS NEWS
(from Ken Rodenas)

Peter Criss will be appearing as a guest at the Chiller Theatre Convention from October 27th -29th at the Crown Plaza in Secaucus, NJ. Yes, this is the same venue that has been home the past several years to the annual NY KISS Expo. You can find more details here. Peter recently signed a new drumstick endorsement deal with Pro-Mark. You might remember, Peter was with Pro-Mark once before from the early 1980’s through the mid-1990’s. In celebration of Peter’s new endorsement, Pro-Mark is producing VERY LIMITED edition drumsticks that will ONLY be available at the Chiller Theatre Convention. There will be two different models which represent Peter’s various music styles. The first model will be the Pro-Mark TXR3JW model, which is a jazz stick that will feature a “jazz cat” on it in green & black. The second model will be the Pro-Mark TX3RW model, which is a rock stick that will feature Peter’s famous cross tattoo on it in red & black. Peter personally hand drew the artwork for both models! Each pair will come with a certificate of authenticity. So word to the wise, get them while you can! If you were considering going to the convention, do so. If you can’t make it, find a friend who is going and can pick them up for you. As I mentioned, they will not be available afterwards.

GENE SIMMONS COMIC BOOK COMPANY
(from Jazan Wild/www.jazanwild.com)

I have been contacted by several people asking about the Diamond Ads that have my books coming out through Simmons Comics Group (Gene Simmons new comic book company).
I really don't want to comment about any reasons or speculation for the delay or cancelation. All I can say, is that I worked with Gene Simmons for 4 months or so and I was writing a series to be called House Of Horrors. This titles will not be coming out this Halloween with Simmons Comics Group.

I grew up admiring Gene and the day I started working with him on the Simmons Comic Group project was a dream come true.

As a kid, I remember Gene and Kiss always saying "you could be anything you wanted to be."
I believed them and they changed my life!

I'll Be Forever Thankful!

BILL AUCOIN TO MANAGE LORDI?
Original Kiss manager Bill Aucoin was impressed by Lordis performance at this years song contest. Since Lordi are looking for a new manager, Bill Aucoin flew to Finland on his own expense to see the rehearsals and the first couple of concerts of the new Tour to show his interest in managing the band.

So will he be managing Lordi now? "We don't know yet, we hope so." says Mr. Lordi, who sat down with us to talk about the old days when Mr.Lordi used to organise the local Kiss Expos in Helsinki, his band Lordi and of course Kiss. "Bill came over to see us, the chemistry betwen all of us was great" he said. While Lordi have great success in Europe, their records are not yet released in the USA. "The records are only available by import there, its a record company thing" he continues, and he added, that they would like to get Bill Aucoin as their manager, if he can make them a good offer.

While Bill Aucoin was in Finland, he showed Lordi also the live-performance of "Deuce" from 1973 on his laptop, which is going to be on the "Kissology" DVD set. So how is it? "Well, it's a B/W recording with one camera from 1973" he said, "Bill Aucoin wanted to release it as a full concert, but Kiss decided to release the footage just piece by piece".

KISSOLOGY DVD-REVIEW
(from DVDreview.com)

The phenomenon that is "KISS" keeps going and going and going. What started out originally as a unique and radically flashy rock band has turned into a huge corporation over the past 30 years with Gene Simmons seemingly dead-set to milk it for every penny that it is worth. The merchandising machinery of "KISS" is unparalleled in the music industry and puts to shame even Hollywood on countless occasions. The band hasn't recorded an album in years and yet sales on all things "KISS" are soaring while the band continues to tour arenas across the country in what started as their "Farewell" tour some five years ago.

Now, Gene Simmons decided to chronicle some of the career milestones of the band in "KISSology," a 3-volume DVD release that contains some of the historic appearances and concerts of the band throughout the years. Volume 1, which we have here for review, covers the years 1974 to 1977. This is, by many fans' standards, the Golden Era of "KISS," covering the formation of the band all the way to their platinum album "Love Gun." During this period, featuring Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, Ace Frehley and Peter Criss, the band arguably crafted some of their best songs, most of which have sustained the years and are still hymns to this day. Whether it's "Rock'n Roll All Nite," "God Of Thunder," "Detroit Rock City," "Beth," "Black Diamond," "Deuce" or "Love Gun," this period produced them all. As a result, most fans will consider Volume 1 of the "KISSology" the most interesting and intriguing of all volumes.

After inserting the disc in the player I was a bit surprised at its overall presentation as within a second the disc launched into concert footage right away, without any menu, without any disclaimers or anything. On the one hand this is nice, but at the same time you are sort of thrown into the middle of the concert at the Long Beach Auditorium without warning, introduction or mood-setter. It took me a few seconds to realize that I'm watching the actual disc and not some promo or extended main menu lead-in. From there on the disc just keeps piling it on and on. There is concert footage after concert footage, interspersed with clips from TV appearances and even the occasional "documentary" chronicling one of the band's appearances, like the infamous Cadillac, Michigan High School events.

The picture and sound quality on this release varies significantly, of course. Being documentary in nature, we are presented here with amateur footage as well as 16mm film and 70s TV footage in many instances. All of them simply do not measure up to today's standards, creating an image that is grainy, noisy, bleeding colors, faded, muted or whatnot. It is all across the map, really. However, that is part of the appeal of this release. It gives us a look at the band in its early days as well as some untainted footage from their shows before production technologies became overly slick. The footage feel authentic and rare, making it a true gem for the band's fans of old. Starting with the 1976 concert at Detroit's Cobo Hall - which is one of the four concerts presented on this release in their entirety - you can begin to tell that concert video and audio begin to dramatically improve.
On the second disc you will find the entire Budokan concert from 1977 as well as "The Summit" concert during 1977's "Love Gun Tour."

The same thing is essentially true for the audio quality. While early footage contains horrible distorted audio for the most part if gets gradually better. The three full concerts on the release have actually been remixed to 5.1 channel Dolby Digital, trying to squeeze the most out of the tracks. What I found particularly interesting was during the band's early segments, which were shot by amateurs, is that you get to hear a very unbalanced mix. On one clip you may hear only Gene's bass lines, while in another clip you may be able to hear only Ace's guitar work while everything esle is drowned out. The musician in me was extremely excited about being able to get a glimpse at the musicianship that is on display here aside from the theatrics.

As an extra, the DVD also contains a commentary track with the band members. It is mostly Gene Simmons who is doing the talking together with Paul Stanley. While very interesting and informative, the comments are spotty however. Sometimes there would be a short introduction, like to the Budokan concert, where Paul talks about the band's arrival in Tokyo and Gene's recollection of the contract situation, but after a few minutes the commentary falls silent. This happens on a large number of occasions, so again, do not expect a whole lot of divulging into backstage information etc. This is mostly about the concerts and appearances of the band.

"KISSology: Volume 1" is true nostalgic fun for any "KISS" fan. I do have to admit however that I was hoping there'd be more backstage footage included in this release but there is virtually none. What little there is, is part of some promo clip or documentary. If you were hoping to get a low down on the band – as in the people and the production they put on the road or clips of them working on their albums - in those early days, you will be disappointed. This is all about promo and concert materials. This is not necessarily a bad thing, but I thought I'd point it out.

For me it was great to revisit those early days of the band – the era when I became a "KISS" fan myself. It is a nice throwback to the 70s and the mystique that "KISS" was at the time. For fans of the band, this release is definitely a must-own!

SURPREME COURT REJECTS VINCENT
(from Kissonline)
On October 2, 2006, the United States Supreme Court flatly rejected Vincent Cusano p/k/a Vinnie Vincent’s effort to revive his baseless claims against KISS. The Court’s denial of Cusano’s petition closes the door on Cusano’s nine year campaign to harass KISS.

The Vincent case demonstrates that KISS will not reward people who misuse the legal system in an attempt to pry money from KISS that is not deserved. Cusano performed with KISS for a short stint in 1982-1984. In 1997 Cusano filed a lawsuit against KISS containing many claims, including underpayment of royalties.


The California Court disagreed and dismissed or otherwise found in favor of KISS on every single claim by Vincent. The California Court of Appeals agreed with KISS, finding that Vincent’s appeal was “frivolous.” The California Courts soundly rejected any claim by Cusano that KISS or its record company had not paid Cusano all royalties owed to him. As you can see from the excerpt from the Associated Press set out below, the United States Supreme Court has refused to alter the California Courts’ decision in favor of KISS.

KISS thanks all of its fans for their continued support.

GENE SIMMONS' "ROCK SCHOOL" STUDENT CLAIMS KISS BASSIST IS "ALL TALK"
(from Blabbermouth.net)
World Entertainment News Network reports that British chart newcomer LIL' CHRIS has slammed his "Rock School" mentor Gene Simmons for dropping him once filming on the U.K. version of "Rock School" finished.

The 16-year-old rocker — real name Chris Hardman — is on the way to becoming a major artist in his homeland, but it's no thanks to the KISS bassist.

And he insists Simmons' boasts of having slept with 6,000 women is "all talk" and he falsely claimed to be close to the Osbournes.

He says, "All the girls I spoke to wouldn't touch him with a barge pole."

"He says he is good friends with Sharon Osbourne and Ozzy but he isn't. They hate him. I know because I spoke to Sharon and she says he is an a**hole."

"He is probably in L.A. (Los Angeles) taking all the credit for my chart success even though he has done nothing to help."

GENE SIMMONS' GIFT TO CHER AUCTIONED OFF
(from Blabbermouth.net)
A table lamp made from a taxidermied armadillo, a gift to actress/singer Cher from Gene Simmons, co-founder of the 1970s rock band KISS, was estimated at $300 to $500 and sold for $3,500 to a phone bidder during a two-day auction of Cher's belongings that ended Wednesday (Oct. 4) in Beverly Hills. About 780 items sold for a total of $3.54 million. Julien's Auctions and New York-based Sotheby's, which ran the sale together, had estimated that sales would reach $1.4 million to $1.6 million.

"It is the ultimate conversation piece," joked auctioneer Leila "Lee" Dunbar, director of Sotheby's collectibles department, during the bidding.

PAUL STANLEY REHEARSAL
(from Kissonline)
KISSONLINE spent Friday with Paul Stanley in Los Angeles, as he rehearsed for his upcoming LIVE TO WIN Tour! Backed by the House Band from the TV show Rock Star, Stanley tore through a mix of material that would make any Paul fan scream with delight! On it's own, the set list is major news but even bigger news is the sound of Paul and his backing band! Comprised of Paul Mirkovich (Keyboards), Jim McGorman (Guitar), Rafael Moreira (Lead Guitar), Nate Morton (Drums) and Sasha Krivstov (Bass), the House Band is a tight unit of musicians on top of their field! Add the greatest front man in rock and look out!

The admiration and respect between Paul and the band is clearly evident. The scary part is this was only the third rehearsal so far. Rehearsals are scheduled almost daily, right up until opening night - October 21st. It should also be noted these are not short rehearsals. Today the guys spent over seven hours delivering the set with a three guitar attack, along with keyboards, a ferocious rhythm section, outstanding backing vocals and Paul Stanley in fine vocal form!

We promised Paul we would not ruin the surprise by posting the set list, but we can tell you there is a nice mix of new material from LIVE TO WIN, tracks from his classic '78 album and KISS songs - some of which have never been played live before!

GET READY TO HAVE SOME FUN!!!

VINNIE VINCENT LOSES ROYALTY APPEAL
(from BBC News)
Former Kiss guitarist Vinnie Vincent has lost a US Supreme Court appeal in a royalties dispute with the rock group, according to the Associated Press.

Vincent - real name Vincent Cusano - was part of the band's line-up from 1982 and 1984 and co-wrote songs for its 1983 album Lick It Up. He was dismissed from the band but later returned to contribute material to 1992 release Revenge. The ruling follows earlier unsuccessful legal attempts to claim royalties. Lead singer Gene Simmons has been quoted as saying that Vincent was dismissed from Kiss for "unethical behaviour". Renowned for their flamboyant stage make-up and costumes, Kiss have had many different line-ups since their inception in the early 1970s.
