BONUS DEMO EPISODE:
Little Known and Untrue History, Gene Simmons
A silly little sidecast idea from Eric. In the spirit of the 1970s TV series In Search Of combined with the Pods & Sods recurring joke, “little known and untrue fact.” Think In Search Of meets Behind the Music meets John Hodgman. Deadpan farce, fake history. This episode is brief (less than 10 minutes) and incomplete, just a start really. I’m throwing it out as a bonus as we’ve wrapped our annual series, KISSMas for it’s final year and wanted to clean the KISS decks a bit. Hope you enjoy!
Gene Simmons joins Eric in conversation to discuss The Gene Simmons Vault – an amazing collection of 50 years of Gene! We talk about the earliest recording My Uncle Is A Raft from 1966, how he views songwriting from a creative perspective in addition to the business success, he shares details of specific never-before-heard tracks Hunger, Are You A Boy Or Are You A Girl, early versions of Journey of 1000 Years, It’s My Life, writing during the Elder and Dynasty years, the history of the tapes involved in compiling this collection, how the book came together, the process he’ll undertake to deliver these to fans that buy them around the world, was anything retouched, whether he and Paul have talked about the future of KISS should one of them choose to step away, what’s next and much more. W’ALLLRIGHT!!
