What We Can Learn

• If you didn’t know that Elvis Costello ruled previous to this point. You could learn that.

• Before forming KISS, Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley were in a band entitled Wicked Lester. They walked away from the band (and a recording contract) after the rest of the members refused to be fired.
