    On The Rolling Stones last tour, you could buy a pair of VIP tickets and meet and greet package (time may be limited to 15-90 seconds with each group) for a mere $25,000.

    The Experience
    After 55 years and over 250 million albums sold, The Rolling Stones continue to earn their keep as the greatest rock band that ever was. This fall The Stones will hit Europe’s major cities for their “No Filter” mega tour, and IfOnly has your invitation to meet the mythical rockers in person.

    A pair of premium seats await you at the available tour date of your choice, where you will arrive to the venue early for a special pre-show reception. Then get ready as Mick, Keith, Charlie and Ronnie unleash a half century of unforgettable hooks. From “Sticky Fingers” to “Tattoo You,” The Stones are behind some of the most influential albums in popular music. Witness the band’s signature live electricity from some of the best seats in the house.

    Your incredible evening will culminate with a face-to-face meeting with The Stones themselves. Shake hands with the legendary musicians and capture the moment forever in a photo. You will also take home a custom-picked merchandise bag packed with limited edition concert memorabilia. Funds from this experience will benefit Community Links, an environmental, service-learning, immersion, volunteer, and international educational organization.

    Any talking head that pushes personal agenda over substantive reporting. Usually said talking head has the quiet support of their corporate employer. Unless the shiz hits the fan, then they distance themselves less quietly. We're all adults here. We know certain "reporting" agencies are of a certain mind about world views. NPR is a well known organization. Their leanings are not a mystery and in point of fact they have admitted as much.

    I'm not going to respond to anymore on this as it could only go into rules violation territory which I'm not willing to do beyond the grey area alluding I've done. Just look into the sources ( corporate and individual ) of this and explain how it was anything other than a socially baited issue that was intentionally put forth to illicit contentious conversation.

    For a band that had made merchandising their most stable source of income (AFAIK no other band has exploited it to such an extent) it's a logical step. I mean, they'll even try to sell you Kiss "air guitar strings"...

    KISS Now Sell *Official* Air Guitar Strings, Seriously - Metal Injection

    I think some have to rethink the "sell out" concept. Kiss transcends the "sell out" stereotype, their aim IS selling. With that in mind, they're terribly successful at their goal. I find some things people say about Kiss plain sad and envious (the same sort of envious creeps who also bash their songs, no matter how well crafted some of them are -mostly Paul Stanley's-). I don't know why some would prefer mediocre artist/sharp businessman Bono's "commited"/"moral" image, which I find really full of it, instead of Gene Simmons who is and has always been totally honest and has no creepy guilty christian poser morality for doing/promoting his business, who will tell you he wants your dollar in his pocket and is constantly thinking of different ways of giving you some value for it (well, except for the air guitar strings).

    I'm honest, I find way less hipocrissy in Kiss than in MANY other "socially commited" bands. I'm honest too in admitting if I'd have to feel anything about them it'd be plain envy, won't even try to disguise it in artistic or moral crap.

    I'd like to have $50,000 and I'd like to keep it. There is no way that I would I give it to Gene Simmons.

    So, I take it you never listen to ANY TV/radio interviews? Everybody in the media has an agenda. If you agree with that agenda, you probably don't recognize the bias is there.

    Lets not mistake a forwarding of ones ideals at the expense of another as equal to reporting a topic.

    What if he threw in a Kiss lunchbox and one of his wanker action figures?

    I’m sorry but I don’t like Gene Simmons, or even one Kiss song. They were still pretty big when I was 7 or 8. Actually one of the first cassette tapes that I bought was Animalize. I thought the cover was cool. Turned out I didn’t like they’re brand of rock one iota. I personally would pay 0 dollars to have Gene Simmons bring me a box set. The whole thing sounds about like poop :thumbsdown:

    Terry Gross isn't a news reporter or a talking head pundit. She interviews celebrities and other newsmakers.

    I hate to go here but I feel compelled:

    “Elicit” is a verb that means “to obtain.” It can also mean “to draw out, to extract, or to evoke.” For example, “Terry Gross' question about the codpiece elicited a provocative response from Gene Simmons.”

    “Illicit” is an adjective that means “contrary to accepted morality (especially sexual morality) or convention.” For example, “Gene Simmons responded to a question about the codpiece with deliberate hostile illicit sexual innuendo."

    Do 8 year olds know Kiss? I am dubious, but maybe there is a hit game of which I am unaware.

    Careful, just a cardboard cutout of him may be what actually gets delivered with the CD set...
