Growing up being a hugh kiss fan. I knew that gene was just a normal guy. Which is so cool! Under all that war paint and blood I knew there was a warm hearted boy from new york city. And to see him on family jewels just make smile and feel warm knowing I was right all along. Hard work and love will take you far. Sincerely yours JP Leary Pittsburgh PA . P.S. Gene thanks for thiry plus great years. America number ONE selling band. Rock and roll hall of fame kiss my a--!
