The KISS Pre-GRAMMY Opening At Morrison Hotel Gallery was a free-for-all of LA’s Rock N’ Roll glitterati and music insiders. Lina Lacaro, Julia ‘Lady J’ Gerard, Sirius Trixon, Jimmy Steinfeld, Sky Polkowitz, Travis Shinn, Lu Lu Danger, Jeremy Dander, Joe Fidler, Kansas Bowling and Rodney Bingenheimer rounded out the list. It was a zoo as the fans negotiated to see Gene  Simmons and Paul Stanley. For more details on the exhibition take a look at the LA Beat article KISS at The Morrison Hotel Gallery in West Hollywood

After the original press meet and greet Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Shannon Tweed Simmons, Sophie Simmons and Nick Simmons slipped away for dinner at Cavatina. Gene and family returned to celebrate with a friend at Bar 1200 in the Marquis Hotel before closing out the evening festivities.
