Interview with KISS Kollector
by Joop van Pelt 2005
Wasn't it hard to part with so many of your items? Don't you think you'll regret some of it within a few years?
LC: There were some items that I felt were hard to part with, but I still have some stuff left. I didn't get rid of everything. Sure I will probably regret getting rid of some of the items, (especially when I see them going for three times the price on E-bay in two months) but people have to move on and this is my first step forward. I don't have children to leave any of this to, so before my family just throws everything away, for lack of knowledge, I thought I would share my collection with the people that it means so much to.
Whereas I can imagine that you're glad you sold specific items (as it must be great to have more space at home now), I don't think I would ever be able to part with extremely personal stuff like - in your case - a wedding dress. Why did you even include pieces like that, is it perhaps your way of saying goodbye to the 'era' of your years with Peter and KISS?
LC: It is something I will NEVER WEAR AGAIN, and as I said in answer to the previous question, I do not have children, so I have no one to pass it down to. I also got the idea when I went to "The Official KISS Convention" at Roseland in New York City and a couple got married with KISS makeup on and Paul Stanley was the Best Man. I said to myself, if someone would go that far, maybe someone would like to get married in my wedding dress. I really don't know who bought it, whether it is a female or a male, or whether the winner will wear it or just display it, but that is one thing that I might regret years from now.
