Gene would have had his input if Vinnie stayed in Kiss and used the songs of VVI in Kiss album.i didn't read all yet but the lesson about putting all his money into his demos is a good one. The guys who do things take mega risks and put money into their work to get what they want. I really like that story about Vinnie.
As for Gene liking VVI, I have a few interviews where he said he didn't like it but one said if he controlled his playing he would have liked it. They obviously knew it was good. I bet they both loved Ashes to Ashes and the more commercial tunes on ASG.
Yes, I think Gene's 'Asshole' persona is exaggerated, potentially for the purpose of marketing.Gene is not a bad guy at all. I think being a band leader you are going to be hated but from what people have said I don't think he is bad. Hey we are all a mix of good and bad i guess.
