Kiss Monument Unveiled in Cadillac, Michigan
CADILLAC, Mich. (AP) — The city of Cadillac, Michigan, has unveiled a monument dedicated to the day 40 years ago when Kiss came to town. Kiss visited Cadillac in October 1975 to meet the high school's football team, which credited Kiss' music for its winning season the previous year. Kiss had ridden in the homecoming parade, had performed in the school gym and had thrown cards that said "Kiss Loves You" from a helicopter. This past weekend, a black granite monument dedicated to the event was unveiled beside the football field. Kiss was not able to attend but sent a video tribute. Gene Simmons tells MLive.com he remembers that event so clearly, because "it was almost as if we were on a Kiss spaceship and landed on Planet Kiss." He says a film called "Cadillac High" based on the visit is in the works.
