AAron Camaro I accept your challenge and will connect Brett Favre to KISS in six steps or less.
Brett Favre’s name if read phonetically should clearly be pronounced either Fov-Ree or Fov-Ray but for some reason it is pronounced “FARV” as if the V and R were inverted. Brett Favre set numerous NFL records including throwing for more than 700,000 yards, more than 500 touchdowns, more than 300 interceptions, and more than 6000 completions; and also for retiring 17 times. How am I going to connect Mr. Gooder Than Grits to KISS in six steps or less? Like this:
1. Brett Favre has a surprise cameo in the Farrelly Brothers’ 1998 smash hit comedy There’s Something About Mary.
2. Singer-songwriter Jonathan Richman also appears in There’s Something About Mary performing original songs throughout the film which provide a sort of interstitial narrative.
3. Jonathan Richman was originally the frontman of a legendary Boston band called The Modern Lovers along with future Talking Head Jerry Harrison.
4. The first song on Jerry Harrison’s 1990 solo album Walk On Water, a song called “Flying Under Radar,” was co-written and co-produced by former Johnny Winter and Edgar Winter non-albino sideman Dan Hartman.
5. The guitar player in Dan Hartman’s band for his 1978 album Instant Replay was a guy named Vincent Cusano.
6. A few years after working with Dan Hartman Vincent Cusano would become Vinnie Vincent, replacing Ace Frehley in KISS.
