    <p><strong>There are artists that know how to put on a show. And then there's KISS. In a recent interview with Guitarist magazine, Tommy Thayer explained how his live showpiece stays on target:</strong></p> <p class="p1">"Basically, you have a pyrotechnic shot that's attached to the back of the headstock and it's all done electronically. It's done safely, too, as it's not just a matter of hitting a button: you also have to engage what's called a kill switch before you can go to the firing button.</p> <p class="p1">"The guitar had to be kind of a custom, so I called Gibson and I picked a black <a href="" onclick="_gaq.push(['_trackEvent', 'HubPush', 'inBody', '(Gibson Les Paul((')?s)?|Les Paul((')?s)?)']);return true;">Les Paul</a>. Some wiring had to be installed, so space was routed out up the neck, and it's a pretty technical and impressive piece of machinery.</p> <p class="p1">"There are three shots for that part of the solo, so there are three buttons: you shoot the rockets and it's a lot of fun. I remember the first few times I was nervous because I didn't want to screw it up.</p> <p class="p1">"People say, 'That's such an Ace [Frehley] thing, why do you guys do that?' But we don't look at it that way: it's a KISS thing. It's part of a KISS show. End of story."</p> <h4>For much more from Tommy Thayer, including exclusive video and the full skinny on his signature Epiphone Spaceman Les Paul, <a href="">check out issue 359 of Guitarist magazine</a>, on sale now.</h4> <a href="">Read more about How does KISS star Tommy Thayer shoot rockets out of his guitar? at</a><img width='1' height='1' src='' border='0'/><div class='mf-viral'><table border='0'><tr><td valign='middle'><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" /></a></td><td valign='middle'><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" /></a></td></tr></table></div><br/><br/><a href=""><img src="" border="0"/></a><img width="1" height="1" src="" border="0"/><img src="" height="1" width="1"/>
