Getting A Hard Rock KISS From Myrtle Beach, SC (6/3/2014)

If you are reading this as it first posts let me share that I am currently down South in the Myrtle Beach part of South Carolina paying a visit to some family who have relocated there. It’s a lovely spot for sure and just yesterday while driving around I noticed the Hard Rock Cafe on a section known as “Broadway On The Beach”. This is a very popular area and its got tons of shops and restaurants to sample. It was also the location of the no longer in business KISS coffeehouse. Anyway, since I was so close to the HRC, I decided to drop in and see what KISS items that they might have since I love sharing that kind of stuff on the blog. Here we go.

Logo - KISS

The first sight that I had was this video animation screen that showcased our favorite band and numerous other things in the Cafe. This was right outside the gift shop and since it was very early in the day I was able to wander with ease and not disturb any diners.

Giving A Hard Rock “KISS” To Times Square :)

I had to chuckle the other night when one of my readers saw me at a show and said “you really do post quite a few KISS things don’t you” because he was right and with their being my favorite band I am going to keep on doing that when I find something that is interesting. That said, I passed by the Hard Rock Cafe in Times Square and noticed a bright marquee showcasing a brand new and limited edition KISS t-shirt. This bore looking into but first a few shots of the cool marquee.

The band was officially inducted into The Rock and Roll Of Fame only recently and before you ask, yes the images of KISS in this marquee and the subsequent shirt are Gene, Paul, Tommy and Eric.
