When KISS Came to Cadillac

The name "Jim Neff" is forever associated with one of the most legendary events in rock and roll history. In October of 1975, I was the driving force in bringing the band KISS to Cadillac High School for homecoming. The tale has been retold in print, on VH1, MTV,  Volume 1 of the KISSology DVD, on ESPN's Behind the Lines, and other media too numerous to list. The saga will soon be the subject of a major motion picture. My special KISS website has links to everything about this historic event that has fascinated music fans for over 40 years, including the 2015 KISS Cadillac Homecoming 40th Anniversary Celebration.
