Weird Things People Do With Money

Weird Things People Do With Money
MSN Money

Kiss is one of the world's most successful rock bands, with at least 3,000 licensed products. It has pitched such things as Kiss Kondoms, Kiss Kaskets (really) and the Kiss Visa card.

The band's front man and co-founder, Gene Simmons, claims that Kiss can make $1 million or more a show. Its fans are rabid and have been since the group formed in 1972 in New York.

Wearing a Kiss T-shirt is one thing, but many hard-core fans have decided to show their allegiance more creatively, as in the photo above.

The Evolution Of KISS






The Evolution Of KISS
Netherlands KISS fan 'Necramonium' has made a great three part film called "The Evolution Of KISS".

Necramonium writes on his Youtube page: "I made these video's to show the changes that KISS underwent when they transformed from a small club band to a million record selling stadium filling act. Most attention goes to their costumes and music on how they changed in the years".

It's amazing how dedicated KISS fans are to the band and level of work the fans incorporate into their homages.

Check out his webpage for more great KISS related video's HERE.

KISS #1 On New Jersey Radio

KISS #1 On New Jersey Radio
RockStarWeekly

KISS "Modern Day Delilah" has hit radio this week and is having strong showings in some markets across America, including being the number one phone request at WDHA in New Jersey, according to FMQB. The hard rocking Paul Stanley tune is the first single from the upcoming Sonic Boom CD and continues the tradition of KISS getting snubbed by radio. This is the first new material in 11 years and will be sold in the U.S. and Canada exclusively at Walmart, Walmart.com and Sam's Club retail locations.

SONIC BOOM, produced by the band's Paul Stanley in Los Angeles, is the centerpiece of a three-disc set that also features a completely re-recorded greatest hits CD as well as a live DVD shot in Argentina during the band's recent, record-breaking KISS ALIVE 35 South American tour. The CD set will retail for $12, with pre-orders starting in September on Walmart.com.
