KISS Guitarist TOMMY THAYER Donates Amp Royalties To Children's Hospital Los Angeles

KISS guitarist Tommy Thayer has donated his royalties from the sale of the "Tommy Thayer Signature Duotone Head" from the guitar amp company Hughes & Kettner to Children's Hospital Los Angeles.

"Caring for children and their medical needs is so important to me. Children's Hospital Los Angeles is dedicated to providing the highest quality pediatric care anywhere in the world and they make it happen every day," said Tommy in a statement.

A photo of Thayer meeting some of the senior physicians and staff during his recent visit to the hospital to present the first check to Henri Ford, Vice President, and Surgeon-in-Chief, can be found at this location.

Hughes & Kettner conducted an interview with Tommy Thayer in May 2008 while KISS was in Cologne, Germany rehearsing for this past summer's European tour. Watch the seven-minute chat below.
