ACEcapades ’79

KISS fans (and even the great Unholy) are familiar with at least one classic Ace moment from the bands ’79 interview with the late, great Tom Snyder: there’s the space bear incident and the revelation that Ace is not a spaceman after all when reports “actually …I’m a plumber”. There is however another rich Ace clip towards the very end of the show in which he makes a funny about cows outside a hypothetical KISS concert in Bombay and Tom starts laughing so hard that he slumps back in his chair convulsing. Ace starts pointing at him and saying to party buddy Peter (the cat) Criss: “Look at this guy ….he’s a good guy!!!!” and then tells Snyder to “wake up” through maddening cackles. Oh the salad days of KISSTory.
