As I know most of you don’t know where that’s from, I will tell you that it is the title of a song released on Paul Stanley’s (lead guitarist of KISS) 1978 album, Paul Stanley, which was released (along with solo albums of ALL members of the band at the height of their initial popularity) in 1978. Paul’s unique voice and unending commitment to quality have proven why he has been (and always WILL BE) a rock-n-roll icon.
Born on this date in 1952 in Queens, NY, the heavy metal idol is also an accomplished entrepreneur, as he and co-creator of KISS, Gene Simmons, also own the Arena Football League’s L.A. KISS, making him an all-around jack-of-all-trades.
Today is also celebrated by; late comedian George Burns (1896-1996), late “Star Trek” doctor Deforest Kelly (1920-1999), “Laugh-In” comedian Arte Johnson (1929), former astronaut Buzz Aldrin (1930), director David Lynch (1946), and comedian/talk show host Bill Maher was born in 1956.
Also celebrating today are actor Lorenzo Lamas (1958), current MLB manager (and former player in my childhood) Ozzie Guillen (1964), country star John Michael Montgomery (1965), L.A. Guns frontman Tracii Guns (1966), and Sid Wilson, who music fans may remember as # 0 (or DJ Starscream) from the rock giants Slipknot, was born in 1977.
