    Knowing that Eddie and Alex were involved in the demo of KISS's Christine Sixteen in 1977, and that Gene had helped Van Halen in 1976, I wonder if Gene wanted, or tried to get Eddie to appear on his 1978 KISS solo album? Gene had a large variety of musicians play on his album, it would seem like having Eddie play on it would have been a real boost.

    Glen your post inspired me to dig through my old Kiss records to find that 1978 classic. I must admit that album cover still scares me.
    Even scarier was actually listening to it.
    Gene's rendition of "When You Wish Upon a Star" was comical. Of course when I was 6 I am sure it made more sense.
    Big Gene does actually thank Van Halen on the back of the album though.
    After that little trip down memory lane I better throw on some Fair Warning to redeem myself.

    <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>What does it say exactly? I've got the CD (unremastered) and I don't see any mention of Van Halen.

    I actually don't mind the CD, but don't tell Brett, he may revoke my Mod privilages if he finds out I've got a KISS album.

    There is just a long list of over 100 people Gene thanks. VH is just one.
    He also thanks Paul McCartney, Sammy Davis Jr, Dinah Shore, Shaun Cassidy etc. Basically a who's who of 70's pop culture.
    It did make me wonder though, there is an M. Anthony credited for song writing on Destroyer's "King of the Night Time World."
    Probably to early to have been Mike. But I did always wonder.

    You know...

    It didn't seem like anything *that* bad to me.

    But once Mr. Cochran saw this bit of info he uttered, "Game. Set. Match."

I'm a late bloomer on the KISS highway; I had a buddy in junior high who was a certified KISS maniac, he had everything on record and tape, the KISS dolls and that big poster from the Dynasty album on his wall.

    I've got the Gene and Paul solo albums, I'm sure I'll get the Ace one soon enough; probably be awhile before I get the Peter one though.

    You know, Kiss was the only thing for me before VH. Hell, I was 10 years old in 1976 when my mom took me to see Kiss, my first concert!

    Anyway, almost 25 years later I'm a little embarassed! Just like our kids will be in 25 years over the Back Door Boys, N'stink, etc... It's a visious circle! MO.
