KISS guitarist/vocalist Paul Stanley has posted the following message on his official web site:"Having just finished my first shows since 1989, I have to say I was blown away! We sounded even better than I had hoped and your reactions seemed to say you all felt the same. Thank you. "Sasha, Jimmy, Paul, Haffa and Nate were really incredible both off and onstage. The road crew's pride in being a part of this was written all over them and I was proud and lucky to have them with me. They too were an inspiration. "These shows reconnected for me the incredible intensity that can be created by loving what you do and giving it your all. I remember as a kid, I would go to concerts in NY and see JIMI HENDRIX, THE WHO, HUMBLE PIE, LED ZEPPELIN and countless other bands play small theaters and blow the place apart. Not with pyro or special effects, but with sheer energy, belief in their music and a determination to reach the audience and take them to a place that only they could. THAT's why I loved concerts and that's why I wanted to follow in their footsteps. This short tour and you in the audience confirmed my belief that we could also go there. We did and we will again. "As far as live shows, we are lining up shows outside of the U.S. and I hope to do many more here also. "So... Goodbye is only for now, 'Cause I'm coming back, I swear it somehow." As previously reported, The "Rock And Roll Fantasy Camp Podcast 007" has just been released, featuring an interview with with KISS frontman Paul Stanley about his solo album, "Live to Win", the band's new "Kissology: The Ultimate Kiss Collection Vol. 1 1974-1977" DVD, and "a bunch of other stuff that you won't hear anywhere else!"
