Patrick D. - February 2021
Not sure if you'll ever actually see this but thanks for the music and inspiration, CatMan.
I've told you this before but I was there in the crowd at Magic Mountain - my first Kiss concert. It meant everything to that 13 year old. Never lost that feeling from that night.
You made me pick up sticks. To this day 45 years later, still playing. Though only for myself these covid daze. That passion also landed me a job working at DW in the late '90's. I recall that time as some of the best years of my life. All the concert passes along with meeting some of my idols - including you. First was at the shop but the extended introduction was at the Ventura Theater. Hanging out backstage and just shooting the shit while on tour with Ace. That 13yo kid, who put on your make up annually for Halloween, I was beside myself. Thank you.
Later, watching the tiger kit go through production, was the production rehearsal at Dodger Stadium. Watching an entire concert with a handful of guests (okay, maybe 100), it was that same feeling at Magic Mountain.
So, again, thank you! I can't express enough the gratitude for what you've meant to me.
All the best,
