Rock News: The KISS Army and Everclear want you!
What is the hottest movie of the summer? Star Wars? Austin Powers? If you
are a rock fan it just might be Detroit Rock City. The movie is set in
the 70s with some fans doing what ever it takes to make it to a KISS concert.
For those of us old enough to remember the first wave of KISS mania in
the 70's the movie promises to be a trip down memory lane. For newer
fans it will give them a glimpse of the what it was like to be a member
of the KISS ARMY.
The First single from the movie soundtrack will not be a KISS tune.
It will be a cover of Thin Lizzy's "The Boys are Back in Town" performed
Production for the music video for the single will get underway on June
29th in L.A. Gene Simmons will appear in the video in his full grease
paint glory, as well as some porn stars Julia Ann, Janine, Janteal, Chasey
Lain, and Raylean. The video will be directed by Art Alexakis of
Everclear and Adam Riftin the films director.
Are you a fan in the L.A. area? If so the KISS Army wants you! The first
100 fans who make it to the video shoot location will have the opportunity
to appear in the video as extras.
The catch? You have to be at least 18, show up in 70's clothing, and
well long hair for the guys will help! Cool you say, where do I go? According
the Metal Edge Online you are to show up by 7:00 am at the L.A. Convention
