Fan Letter To Gene Simmons

 Source: www.GeneSimmons.com

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the opportunity to catch up, say g'day and meet you before the 1st Sydney concert. I have followed KISS for 33 years now and loved the journey but to finally meet you in person and get a hadn signed AXE was the opportunity of a lifetime for me. However this was only a small part of the whole night - thanks to Paul from GeneSimmons Axe my family also got the opportunity to meet you and this meant more to me than just being able to say g'day and meet you myself. The fact that we all found you to be very engaging and genuine as well as interested in us was more than I could have hoped for. I take my hat of to you and thank you.

My nephew, Harry is 3 and he is the one who was giving you the bird as you walked up, he is also the one with Type 1 Diabetes and his parents (my brother) were blown away with how much time you gave us and the interest you took in his predicament. They are heavily involved in Juvenile Diabetes Foundation here is Australia and help organise a number of fundraising events throughout the year. It would be greatly appreciated if you could see your way to send a message of support to these kids and their families or even donate something for one of their charity events to help in some small way. We intend to promote the meet and greet we had with you and your genuine interest in the challenge that is Juevenile Diabetes, every little bit helps and we will continue to support and search for a cure.

We loved every minute of our brief catch up, the AXE will be taking residence in a prime position for all to see and share, and finally the show as always was the hottest show on earth. Thanks for a great night and the once in a lifetime experience.

Yours always in rock...Michael Keys
