Since Gene Simmons and the boys stopped into the SportsCenter set today to sing some of their new songs, I figured I’d bust out this photo of me and my brother-in-law, Jeff, with KISS backstage at a show in Camden a few years back.
That’s me wearing the black and white Gene Simmons shirt.
Gene looked at it and said, “Nice shirt, that’s old.”
He was probably figuring a way to make money out of it.
Anyway, we had a great time that night, although KISS hasn’t been the same since they first came back as the original quartet with the makeup in ’96.
Happy Thanksgiving and enjoy the day.
