KISS guitarist Tommy Thayer is one of the main creative forces behind Ernest Hummingbird, a children’s storybook app debuting this summer on iOS and Android reports The mobile app tells the story of a hummingbird who wants to sing rather than just hum.

“I’m not a techie and I don’t write code and I don’t really design apps either,” Thayer said. “The content and the music and the stories is really what I am into.”

The new KISS by Monster Mini Golf, located inside the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada will be soft opening on May 19th.

Monster Mini Golf will be located in the Masquerade Village with convenient self-parking in the Masquerade Parking Garage.
