A large crowd of fans, many decked out as their favorite band member, turned out for the ceremony. All four original band members were there. As KISS music blared from loudspeakers and large crowd of fans, many decked out as their favorite band member, turned out for the ceremony as well as representatives of the media, VIPs including Detroit Rock City director Adam Rifkin, producers Kathleen Haase and Barry Levine, associate producer Tim Sullivan and Marilyn Manson guitarist John Lowrey, and KISS’ family members stood by as the KISS star was unveiled at the intersection of LaBrea and Hollywood.
