Cara’s statement can be read below.
A film is in production that includes very early scenes of KISS. I was asked to make the guitars for the Gene, Paul, and Ace actors. With the permission Gene, Paul, Ace, Christina and the graciousness of my associates in this industry, Eddie Carlino and miniature architect Thierry Raynaud, I was able to recreate this custom instrument that was stolen from Paul in 1974. Keith Leroux and Francis Stueber arranged a presentation to Paul. The greatest compliment was when Paul said, he thought it was the original until Gran said it was a copy. See the photos below as well as the copy of Gene’s bass from the same photoshoot in 74.
In other news regarding ‘the hottest band in the land’ fans recently took to social media to reflect and look back on one of Paul Stanley and KISS’ most popular albums – Love Gun. One fan noted: “I always have loved this LP. So cool to hear it remastered, brighter, drums more up in the mix… fantastic job. I would have loved to hear more full-band takes or run troughs as opposed to some of the extra’s they included here. They have so much stuff I just think they could have provided the fan with a better selection. All in all is really cool and the presentation of it all is very good quality as you would expect from KISS. Very pleased. I hope they do the same thing with Dynasty.” Gene Simmons recently revealed if Paul Stanley is ‘past his prime.’
