One From The Archives: 07/17/94 1st Annual Detroit Kiss Convention @ Northfield Hilton, Detroit, MI

07/17/94 1st Annual Detroit Kiss Convention, Detroit, MI

It's a RAID!!

The scheduled special guest at this convention was Peter Criss. Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley made an unannounced, surprise visit (along with members of local law enforcement) to reclaim several original costume pieces from the "Kiss Museum" that was displaying the items at this and other preceding Kiss Conventions. Gene and Paul claimed the items had been stolen at some point from one of their storage warehouses.

Here is some fan-filmed footage of the raid in progress!



...and here, a few years after it all went down, former manager Bill Aucoin explains some of what led up this whole incident happening in the first place.

The Latest Round of "Remember That One Time At CBGB's?" Updates

June 2014 - Tom Cook Drum Case /w/ Vintage CBGB Sticker
(Photo: Bryan Kuntz / NYCDreamin Archives)
Drum case with a vintage early-mid 1990's era CBGB & OMFUG sticker. The case belongs to drummer Tom Cook of The Oddfathers. He played the club a few times in the 90's with (one of) his previous bands, The Magnolias.

I would like to very sincerely thank reader Dave Marin for contacting me a few weeks ago after he found our massive "Remember That One Time at CBGB's" live concert list and database. Dave kindly took the time to scan and send us around 160 Village Voice CBGB ads dating from 1976 - 1979. After sorting through it all  during the past few weekends I've just finished added 62 of those ads (the rest were already included) resulting in an addition of approximately 500+ new show dates we did not previously have. If you're new here and haven't seen our database or if you just want to have another look now that updates have been added - just click right HERE. Warning! Please be patient as the page loads - it is h-u-g-e and may take a minute or two to complete loading.
