"Gene Simmons is a douche bag. My dad ran into him in some bar in Baltimore in the very late 70's after a show. My dad wasn't a huge KISS fan but appreciated their music and told Gene something along the lines of 'Awesome concert, thanks for the show' Gene looked at my dad and then promptly replied 'I hope the next time your sucking a-- to impress someone, you pucker more' and then walked off. My dad was pissed and went to tell his two friends he was with it was time to go, and the bartender stopped them on the way out, Gene and his entourage told the bartender my dad was paying for their drinks and left already. Cost my dad almost a hundred bucks for their alcohol they ditched him with paying. So growing up every time something with Kiss came on, my dad would relate this story and rant about how Gene Simmons can suck and go die somewhere. I was tired of hearing about it, by the time I was 14 or 15"
"Organized a good sized comic con, so I've worked with quite a few. But the saddest was really subtle:
Peter Mayhew (chewbacca), was in the green room for lunch on the 2nd day. He looks very tired and is almost totally wheelchair bound because of his terrible joint problems. I'm sitting across from him while we eat and his assistant asks if his hand is feeling alright to sign more autographs (terrible arthritis). He closes his eyes and nods his head and whispers out 'how much longer will this go today?' To which his assistant delicately replies 'just 5 more hours'. And he whimpers a little and sheds a few tears as they wheel him away from the table and back out to the fans. The saddest part is that he's the nicest guy and never denies a fan while he's at the con and always smiles even though he's in loads of physical pain"
