Windsor teen Shawn Kinghorn may have been too injured to see KISS blow away Sarnia’s Bayfest, but that didn’t stop his rock superheroes from acknowledging their fallen fan.
On Friday, representatives of Hotel-Dieu Grace Hospital presented Kinghorn with a KISS-approved compensation package: four KISS T-shirts, a hooded KISS sweater and an official KISS program autographed by Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer.

More than a month ago, Kinghorn had his heart set on seeing KISS in Sarnia. His father had the tickets, his friends were stoked.
