NeffZone Websites and Highlights

  • 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 and MTV, on numberous tapes and DVDs, on Volume 1 of the KISSology DVD, and on ESPN's Behind the Lines. 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 facinated music fans for over 36 years.
