STEPHEN CORONEL FACES CHILD PORNOGRPHY CHARGE
(from The Island Packet via Emerson Deuschl)
A former guitarist of Wicked Lester, the rock and roll band that preceded Kiss, was arrested in Beaufort County on Friday, accused of uploading child pornography.Stephen Coronel, 63, of Bluffton was charged with five counts of sexual exploitation of a minor following a search of his Plantation Pointe apartment, Sgt. Robin McIntosh of the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office said. Deputies seized a number of electronic devices and other evidence, McIntosh said. Additional details were not available Friday, McIntosh said, citing the pending forensic analysis of evidence.The investigation began when the U.S. Department of Justice's Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force determined child pornography had been uploaded from a home in Bluffton, McIntosh said. The task force and Sheriff's Office tracked the material to Coronel's home. In 1970 and 1971, Coronel was a member of New York-based band Wicked Lester before members Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley left to form Kiss. Wicked Lester did not release an album, though Coronel helped write several songs that later appeared on Kiss albums.

LOVE GUN DELUXE EDITION COMING IN OCTOBER
"Love Gun" will be released as a Deluxe 2CD edition on October 28, 2014.
Universal are proud to announce the next stage of KISS 40th anniversary celebrations, with the release of a Deluxe Edition of the 1977 U.S. platinum album, Love Gun, on 2CD and digital formats.
The bands sixth studio recording, Love Gun was the first album to feature lead vocal performances from all four original band members, and the last studio album with the original KISS line-up. Love Gun has since gone on to sell more than four million copies worldwide.
The 2CD / digital edition includes the complete original album re-mastered on the first disc, featuring such classics as the title track Plaster Caster, the song inspired by Cynthia Plaster Caster, the groupie famous for taking casts of rock star genitalia; Shock Me, written about Ace Frehley suffering an electric shock during a concert in Lakeland, Florida; Christine Sixteen, and Then She Kissed Me, the bands cheeky, gender-switching cover of the Crystals 1963 hit penned by Jeff Barry, Ellie Greenwich and Phil Spector.
The second disc is made up of rare, previously unreleased Love Gun demos of Plaster Caster, Then She Kissed Me, Tomorrow and Tonight and Much Too Soon. Also, the first four lines of the demo I Know Who You Are eventually evolved and became the song Living In Sin. A glimpse into Paul Stanleys creative process is demonstrated in Love Gun (Teaching Demo) with Stanley talking through the various chords of the song after writing the song with the next version Love Gun (Demo) being the complete demo performance. Reputation, the only previously released demo, was originally included on this years KISS 40 compilation.
Also included is a 1977 interview with Gene Simmons, as well as three never-before-available live tracks from the KISS show at the Capitol Centre, Landover in Maryland U.S.A. from December 20, 1977 Love Gun, Christine Sixteen and Shock Me.
