Some KISS memorabilia is hitting the auction block and expected to fetch a pretty penny — upwards of hundreds of thousands, in fact — and this stuff isn’t even musical, per se.
Instead of music, it’s letters … handwritten by each OG band member, for their fourth album “Alive!” … and featured in the gatefold of the groundbreaking live album. They’re up for grabs through GottaHaveRockandRoll.com, which is expecting these personal notes to reach bids between $50k to $150k.
Like we said, the KISS rockers put pen to paper ahead of the release of “Alive!” … writing separate pieces of correspondence to their fan base in pretty descriptive and unique terms.
The content is quite different in each letter — Gene’s talking about punishing/pleasuring listeners, Ace is on another planet, Pete’s feelin’ feline-ish and Paul’s getting into voyeurism. The letters match each rocker’s stage persona … The Demon, The Spaceman, The Catman and The Starchild.
The soon-to-be owner will get the 4 pieces of paper — inheriting them from a lucky then-15-year-old, who initially copped them in 1976 — complete with the glue an art department applied way back then as well.
They’re all certified legitimate through multiple authentication agencies … so we’re talking one of a kind.
The current highest bid is $20k and the auction ends April 14 … so there’s still plenty of time to rock and roll all nite, if you’re into it.
