Todd Cunningham, I accept your challenge and will connect ABBA to KISS in six steps or less.
5. Perhaps the easiest way to connect Holly Knight and/or SPIDER to KISS is via a KISS album called Hot In The Shade which features a song called “Hide Your Heart” which was co-written by Holly Knight.
But there are additional routes we could take. For example:
5. SPIDER was managed by Bill Aucoin.
6. Bill Aucoin managed KISS.
Also the drummer in SPIDER was Anton Fig, who not only played drums on Ace Frehley’s solo album but we now know that he also played drums (uncredited) on the KISS albums Dynasty and Unmasked. So…
5. The drummer in Spider was Anton Fig.
6. Anton Fig played drums on the KISS albums Dynasty and Unmasked.
Anton Fig was also a member of Ace Frehley’s post-KISS band Frehley’s Comet until he landed the gig as the drummer in David Letterman’s band, a position he still holds to this day.
So there you have it Todd Cunningham, I connected ABBA to KISS in six steps or less.
