Paul Stanley - KISS - Christmas Ornament - promo pic - #2011PS

That’s it above, my KISS Paul Stanley Christmas ornament. Pretty Cool, huh? I received this ornament back in 2011 as a gift from my wife. She purchased this piece of KISStory from the Moravian Book Shop, located in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.

The Moravian Book Shop was founded in 1745, by the Moravian Church and lays claim to being the oldest bookstore in continuous operation in the world. There’s some history for you! Metal be thy name! Bethlehem, Pennsylvania… Rocks! Whoa.

KISS “Love Gun” – Deluxe 2CD Version Releasing On October 27th, Via UMe; All The Details Here!

Kiss - Love Gun - promotional album cover pic - 1977

New version of 1977 studio recording contains previously unreleased demos, live tracks, 1977 Gene Simmons interview and liner notes by Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott

_______________________________

As reported on the KISS Facebook:

Legendary Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees KISS continue to celebrate their 40th anniversary with the release of a deluxe two-CD version of their 1977 platinum-plus album, Love Gun, coming out October 27, 2014 on Universal Music Enterprises (UMe). The band’s sixth studio recording, Love Gun was the first album to feature lead vocal performances from all four original band members, and has since gone on to sell more than four million copies.

The two-CD edition will include the complete re-mastered first album, 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 band’s 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, never released Love Gun demos of “Plaster Caster,” “Tomorrow and Tonight” and “Much Too Soon.” The first four lines of the demo “I Know Who You Are” eventually evolved and became the song “Living In Sin” and the rest of the lyrics and music became “I Know Who You Are.” A glimpse into Paul Stanley’s creative process is demonstrated in “Love Gun (Teaching Demo)” with Stanley talking through the various chords of the song after writing the song. The next version “Love Gun (Demo)” is the complete demo performance. “Reputation,” the only previously released demo, was originally included on this year’s KISS 40 compilation.

Also included is a 1977 interview with Gene Simmons, as well as three never-available live tracks from their show at the Capitol Centre, Landover, MD from December 20, 1977, “Love Gun,” “Christine Sixteen” and “Shock Me.” The package comes with liner notes especially written by Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott, recently on tour with KISS.

KISS will make waves with one of the loudest, most over-the-top, non-stop parties ever at The Joint, unleashing its signature elaborate set designs, jam-packed set list, intense pyrotechnics and much more.

From rock ‘n’ roll to fashion, always creating and inspiring, KISS recently appeared as the finale on the prime-time CBS special Fashion Rocks, live from Barclays Center in Brooklyn, hosted by Ryan Seacrest, with Afrojack, Duran Duran, Jennifer Lopez, Miranda Lambert, Nico + Vinz, Pitbull, Rita Ora and the Band Perry.
