After a couple of messages asking where I have been, I figured I should mention that my health is fine. I've just been terribly busy lately...

As as 12 year old kid in 1975, there was no other band than KISS! I still can't believe my parents let me listen to them and go to their shows back then. My Dad would tell me he could hear the music many blocks away from the New Haven Coloseum LOL! It's been such a travesty that so many bands and performers that cite KISS as a major influence that it took so long for the Hall to finally recognize them. Whether you loved them or hated them, within a split second of seeing them, you knew exactly who they were. No other band has ever come close to putting on a stage show like KISS. The sheer number of today's famous guitar players that say ACE (not Gene, not Paul) was their sole influence and reason for even playing should have been enough to get them into the Hall. That all said, Gene, being the moron that he has been for the past 20 years or so, probably was the reason for most of the lack of respect for the band. But here we are, 2014, and "the greatest band in the land" has finally made it into the Hall! Grats to them!

This is one of those times, when the "live" version is much better than the "studio" version!
A very important event is on tonight on The Military Channel and simulcast on YouTube, called The Homeward Bound telethon. It's dedicated to all our veterans, but especially the ones suffering from post traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injuries. The stars have come out tonight to help them. You can make your donation here:

I'm not really a emotional guy, but when it comes to our national heroes, the men and women in our US military, I get out of sorts. The stories they tell are mindblowing, and I can't imagine myself in some of the situations they describe. Most of them are just kids to me. Let's help them out!
