Wasted Space at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.
Simmons previously stated, "I have owned the trademark Moneybag logo for over 25 years. I have used it on my magazines, book imprints, my record company and a few other areas. Until I met Jason Dussault, I held off on really going out into the marketplace with an apparel line. It has to do with finding a kindred spirit and Jason is it. He and I share a passion for only doing things in life that mean something. Together we are creating cutting-edge, in-your-face fashions."

Paul couldn't make it to the Classic Rock Awards, but he sent a video message on how it felt to win the Showman award. Below is the text of the video.
Stanley: I'm very pleased because all my rock 'n' roll heroes have been great showmen. Everyone from Steve Marriott of Humble Pie to Slade's Noddy Holder. Showmanship is key to all my favourite bands. Although I must admit I was surprised to receive the award, given that I'm not quite as commanding on stage as I used to be! ( Stanley is quoting Classic Rock's review of KISS' appearance at Download 2008 -Ed.) in Fairness, it has taken me some time to recover from a torn shoulder - I had to have my left rotator cuff replaced. Plus I've had hip replacement surgery. I'm 57 years old now and being a member of KISS is very demanding physically. But at this point it feels like I've just had my 50,000-mile check-up. I'm good for another 50,000 at least.
What does the future hold for KISS?
It looks like we'll be touring Europe as well as the states. You'll be getting more of what you saw at Download - the KISS Alive! vibe amped up to the max. There might even be a new KISS album at some point. I have been ambivalent to the idea in the past but I'm much more open to it now. I thought I'd be content for KISS to remain a heritage act, just playing our greatest hits - Detroit Rock City and all that. But the new KISS line-up with Tommy Thayer (guitar) and Eric Singer (drums) is proving to be so good, so strong in spirit, it would be interesting to see how we perform in the studio. The intention would be to make a KISS album in the style of our 1970's recordings. A classic KISS album, unmistakably.
These days, do as many people clamour for the return of original members, Ace Frehley and Peter Criss?
The fact that Ace and Peter are not seen on stage with us doesn't seem to bother people as much as it used to. That's a testament to the ability of the new guys, obviously. But in all honesty, many people's image of 'classic KISS' is based on fantasy. A myth. It's like they're looking through rose-tinted glasses, most nights, it was all we could do to struggle through the set that we'd rehearsed.
You couldn't attend the Classic Rock Awards because your wife, Erin, is due to give birth soon.
Our daughter is due in January. It will be my second child with Erin. We already have a son, Colin, who is two years old. I also have a 14-year-old son, from a previous marriage. I'm looking forward to having a daughter, you bet. I feel like it's payback for my wanton life. I can see myself being very protective... protecting her from people like the man I used to be, back when KISS used to run riot all over the world. She'll be daddy's little girl and no one else's.

KISS is scheduled, as we mentioned before, to play Argentina on April 5 at the River Plate Stadium, Buenos Aires, headlining the final night of the Quilmes Rock Festival.
Wednesday, January 21, 2009
KISS will be closing out the Quilmes Rock Festival in Buenos Aires, Argentina on April 5 at the historic El Monumental de Nuñez or River Plate Stadium. Built in 1938, the stadium is home to the Club Atlético River Plate soccer team and is to be considered the national stadium of Argentina. The first match played in this stadium was on 25 May 1938 between River Plate and Peñarol from Uruguay. River won 3-1.
The stadium was renovated several times, most notably for the 1978 World Cup, when the missing stands of one side were erected to complete the circle around the field.
The stadium has room for 65,645 people, and was renewed for the 1978 World Cup; the opening and final matches were both held in the Monumental, which had a capacity of 76,600 at the time because all of the populars stands were standing-rooms.
Countless bands and artists have played the stadium including Bon Jovi, The Ramones, The Rolling Stones, Madonna, Luis Miguel, Robbie Williams, David Bowie, Paul McCartney, Roger Waters, U2, Guns N' Roses as well as KISS. KISS will close the 5 -day rock festival which includes a performance by Iron Maiden on March 28.

Thanks to our good friends at Deuce News.

Will Halifax get KISS-ed?
Published Tuesday January 13th, 2009/Times&Transcript, Halifax, Nova Scotia
(As we mentioned here before, rumours continue to swirl regarding KISS playing their first show of their 2009 tour on June 24 in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada-Editor's Note)
Rumours that legendary rock group KISS will perform an outdoor show in Halifax got much louder yesterday as a Halifax promoter began circulating teaser advertisements for the show.
Advertisements scheduled to appear in today's Times & Transcript were telling readers to check a website for more information, but that website was not up and running yesterday afternoon.
The ads simply say "get ready" and include the well-known makeup faces of Kiss members Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley. Harold MacKay, a Halifax promoter associated with Power Promotional Concepts in Dartmouth, was not available for comment yesterday.
The ads seem to lend more credence to the rumour that KISS will appear in Halifax.
KISS co-founder and bassist Gene Simmons was quoted recently by news media saying a short summer tour was planned for the rock icons next summer, including a date in Halifax.
"I know Halifax is one," Simmons said.
So far, officials in Halifax have been quiet about the possibility. A check of the official KISS website shows no concert dates for 2009.

KISS MASK WEBZINE will be following the developments as they happen. Stay tuned!

Check out video courtesy of TMZ.Com of PAUL & ERIN out and about in Beverly Hills, CA.
It seems all is quiet with KISS. That could only mean one thing - The BOYS are busy! Maybe they are gearing up to record their long awaited album or could they have already started the recording process? Either way, with things being quiet, you know KISS work is being done!
Gene and Jason will be showing their latest collaborations of hats, beanies, wallets, belts and luggage to be released later this year. Each item will feature Gene's MoneyBag logo.
Dussault Apparel sales agent Michael Rosen of LivinTheDream, Inc., and SIA SnowSports Regional Rep of the Year Award 2006/2007, states, "Having Gene Simmons in town to promote the new MoneyBag line of apparel will really heat up attention for the brand in this new territory for them. The product is of great design and fantastic quality and I look forward to helping sell and promote the product at this great event."
