2013 NJ Kiss Expo – A Celebration of the Band, the Music and Much More [PHOTOS]
The 2013 Kiss Expo took place today, Saturday September 28th and it was absolutely a must-see event for any Kiss fan.
From the young to the old, it didn’t matter what age you were, everyone was there to celebrate their love for the men in makeup. From music to memorabilia, the Kiss Expo had it all.
For me, as a life-long Kiss fan, my head was on a swivel from all the amazing sights and sounds. Everywhere you turned you saw something else that would catch your eye, whether it was a piece of old Kiss memorabilia or hearing an old Kiss song from the band Kiss Nation that was there playing live.
Current Kiss guitar player Tommy Thayer was there to sign autographs for the fans and in the middle of the afternoon, he did a cool Q&A session with the fans, answering questions that ranged from asking him if he was full-time member of the band, to how the band picks songs to play live and even what he thought about the ‘Kiss cruises.’
Other people on hand who have been part of the Kiss family over the last 40 years in their own special way were author Ken Sharp, whose brand new book “Got Nothin to Lose – The Making of Kiss 1972-1975” was on hand to discuss it and sign the book for fans. Others on hand were Jim Cara, who creates many of the basses Gene Simmons uses, Ken Kelly who has designed a number of Kiss’ albums and famed Kiss photographer Len DeLessio were all on hand to talk experiences with Kiss.
