My name is Allen Tate and I live in Evansville, Indiana. I've been a fan of the band since I was but a wee lad. I started listening back in 1977 when my babysitter gave me KISS Destroyer for my 7th birthday. I've been hooked ever since.

I have seen KISS in concert 6 times (4 in make-up). I went to the Nashville convention on July 9, 1995 and met the band. Unfortunately, I forgot my camera so I didn't get any pictures. I also saw Ace in concert in Pueblo, Colorado way back in 1994. I almost got my hand caught in Ace's guitar strings when my friend Pat tried to push me up to the stage to shake Ace's hand.

I also enjoy listening to Motley Crue, AC/DC, Judas Priest, Ozzy Osbourne, Rob Zombie, Guns N Roses, (just to name a few) and almost all classic rock (EXCEPT JETHRO TULL, I hate them nasty fellers!)

I work full time at the Ohio Township Public Library System as the Computer Services Manager. Loosely translated, this means I run the website on an NT Server, the circulation system on a VAX/VMS and the LAN. I'm also responsible for the care of each computer in both branches. I also run a home based web design company, Custom Web Pages.

I have an Internet Radio Station (Hair's To The 80's) that plays KISS tunes from the 80's.
