    The only thing a bit sad about this is it was during Eddie's bad era. However funny as hell and it kind of shows you that even when he was struggling, he still could be friendly.

    Great impression.

    Honestly thinking of a tribute idea. Have a bunch of people just sit around a table discussing Eddie the human being more than the musician. Just funny stories like the story here about cable.

    I think, as sad as it is, part of that friendliness was due to the fact he was ripped every day.

    I donít think 2015 Ed would have let a stranger stay in 5150 for a few months.

    Not out of being Ďnot friendlyí. Just out of it being a weird thing to do when you barely know the person and itís your home studio.

    That was good. Made me laugh. Gass's Gene Simmons impression on the Stern show was always hysterical. Pacino and Walden were pissers too.

    That shit is so funny on the radio when you can't see the guy doing it. They could be talking about anything... say, WD-40... and he'd pop in and go... "This is Gene Simmons... and KISS invented WD-40!"
