    Default Dave influenced by Paul Stanley?

    Check out the intro to "I'm the One" from 1976. Dave sure sounds a LOT like Paul Stanley of KISS. Especially the way Dave says "He-ah" ("Here"). The "Alive" album had just come out in '75....methinks Dave gave it a listen a few times.

    I've never heard that before! Great find.


    Oh ya and in regards to the Stanley comparison...I don't hear it. Couple words maybe. But I've never heard that he was influenced by Paul Stanley ever.

    I've never heard that either...but I wonder if he wasn't listening to Stanley around that time and it rubbed off...Both Dave and Paul have been accused of being "gay" for their stage mannerisms (apparently not true of either). I know Dave was open to what other frontmen were doing and didn't mind incorporating things into his act (Jim Dandy being the obvious example). KISS Alive was huge around that time so everyone was listening to them. I think VH was even doing "Rock and Roll All Night".

    Here I immediately picked up on: "Who's interested...who's interested right now in a little bit of boogieing with us...anybody hee'ah?" That sounded so much like Stanley to me. Check this out:

    Go to the 0:35 mark: "I know...I know...there's a lot of people hee'ah...that like to take tequila!"


    That repeating a phrase was a staple for Stanley...and of course the "hee'ah".
