I'm reading the 'Dee says it's over' thread - good stuff on that thread. I'm sure the band will enjoy reading what y'all have written.

But I had a thought. Everyone, I'm sure, is aware that prior to the birth of TS, Jay Jay was briefly in line for a spot in Wicked Lester, which ultimately was filled by Ace (the tale is told here by Jay Jay).

It's interesting to speculate - suppose Jay Jay had gotten the Wicked Lester gig? Think how different the rock landscape would be today... no TS, first off. And that would have altered the entire history of MTV, since 'We're Not Gonna Take It' would not have been one of the videos that helped MTV make their bone in cable broadcasting.

Not to mention how Jay Jay's presence would have altered what Kiss turned into. You can't say for sure that Paul and Gene wouldn't still be selling Kiss Coffins today - but having a non-chemically-altered lead guitarist in Kiss would have completely changed their sound - and Jay Jay's input into the songwriting would have changed that band's direction for sure (who knows if 'I Was Made For Lovin' You' would have even been recorded?).

Anyway. Interesting to think how different rock would be right now if the timing was a little different back in the day. Feel free to discuss...
