Rock N’ Roll All Over


On the one hand, imagine seeing KISS in your hotel in Stockholm purely by chance. Pretty cool.

On the other hand, there’s a heavy metal band with thousands of fanatic fans staying in your hotel.

Must’ve been a Secret Service nightmare.

“I was thrilled,” {Secretary of State Condoleezza} Rice said of her late-night encounter with Kiss frontman Gene Simmons and bandmates Paul Stanley, Eric Singer and Tommy Thayer in the executive lounge of the Sheraton Hotel where they signed autographs and handed out backstage passes and T-shirts to her staff.

“It was really fun to meet Kiss and Gene Simmons,” she told reporters, noting that they seemed well-informed about current events. The band had asked if she could stop by after she finished dinner with the Swedish foreign minister and Rice readily agreed, she said.

I wonder if she signed the online petition to put KISS into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame?
