KISS Hollywood Walk of Fame

Without yesterday’s feature, the first patent for the electric guitar, the rock band KISS would never have received their star on the Hollywood walk of fame on August 11, 1999.

Coincidentally, 26 years earlier on the same day in 1973, Bill Aucoin had become their manager. Aucoin used his previous experience in television to help make KISS into the band with an amazingly enduring look and theatricality everyone knew in the 70s, 80s, 90s and beyond.

And, of course, without KISS we would never have the pleasure of MINI-KISS!
