“In case you tuned in, we’re here with Gene Simmons right now.”
Ladies and gentlemen, this is Deke’s favourite video. The legendary Dan Gallagher put on some Kiss makeup to talk to Paul Stanley. It was such a party that Slaughter dropped in too! It was the infamous gig opening for Whitesnake, and you can get a sense of Paul’s anger that Kiss were not allowed to do their full stage show. David Coverdale’s ego is alluded to.
“If I was gonna paint the Sistine Chapel, I’d do it with a roller. I’m not a fine artist folks!”
“Everything we did was always in addition to what the music was doing. We never did it in place of the music.”
“Whenever people put out sequels to movies, they’re usually not as good as the original. Alive II was pretty much as good as Alive I. When gotta make sure Alive III isn’t…Jaws 3D or something.”
“Michael [Bolton] used to have the mic in his hand and strut around…he’s a rocker!”
When Mark Slaughter and Dana Strum show up, it becomes a bit of a party.
NOTE: There are a couple audio glitches here that I didn’t notice until too late.
