My post on Gene Simmons brought back memories of this classic bit of KISS history.
The infamous Tom Snyder interview. At this point in their history Gene Simmons was trying hard to push his Super KISS image. All of his responses are very serious. Ace on the other hands mocks everything Gene is trying to sell, including the garish Dynasty era costumes.
Though the entire interview is 45 minutes long, this one minute clip gives you a good idea of what went on.
For once, Gene and Paul don't dominate the proceedings. A slightly tipsy Ace Frehley steals the show in one of the best rock interviews of all time.
For more fun play the entire 45 minutes. Watch in part 2 as Ace puts his costume on a Teddy Bear and listen a couple of minutes later (2:41) as Paul (through clenched teeth) tells him "Please put the bear down". Then watch as Gene slowly loses his cool.
Here's another Ramones shirt, worn by a country artist.
Of course Mutt Lange, who has played such a significant part in Shania's career, is probably a Ramones fan, so this isn't that odd.

Thanks for stopping in for Ramones Spotting. We at The Adventurers Club are huge fans of a pop punk band The Dollyrots, on Joan Jett's Blackheart Records. The following is the video for their single, "Brand New Key". Please take a minute, watch it, and let us know what you think.
