Ace Frehley looked out at the sparse crowd two songs into his set at the Tower Theatre on Monday.


(CROTHERSVILLE) - Crothersville High School was recognized by the legendary rock band KISS Friday.

The band's official website posted this photo of the Crothersville cheer block Friday.

It was then re-tweeted by the band member - Gene Simmons.

This photo was taken at the Crothersville boy's sectional basketball game Friday night.

Students and fans dressed up like the members of KISS to cheer on the team. The Crothersville High School Tigers defeat the West Washington High School Senators 72 to 69 and are now headed to the championship game.

FEW BANDS can split a room like KISS. Many fans are so blindly devoted that they probably wouldn’t hesitate to buy an album of the band farting for 30 minutes. Detractors... well, they likely think the group’s records already sound like 30 minutes of farting. But there’s one thing uniting these two factions: KISS’s original—and best—lead guitarist, Ace Frehley.


Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley of KISS were never shy about speaking their minds. They've also managed to stay partners in one of the most beloved bands in the world since the '70s, despite whatever differences they may have. So how to two big personalities like Gene and Paul stay friends through thick and thin?
