I’d like to thank KISS’ recent induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for reminding me of my babysitter Traci. I first laid eyes on her when my parents hired her to watch me while they went to see Elton John in concert. I was 7 years old and pissed they weren’t taking me with them. Then the doorbell rang and in walked a beautiful 14 year-old with a stack of records by a band I had never heard before. I said Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, secretly forgave my parents and she spent the rest of the night, rocking me to sleep. I can confirm that the saying is true, “You never forget your first KISS!”

Kiss LG
