    Just listened to your interview with Carol. Nice job overall but how tempted were you guys to ask her whether or not she had read Paul’s book and more specifically about his account of what took place with Bill’s disturbing tete a tete with the teenage magazine contest winner and how something like that could have been allowed to take place? Would imagine she would have set that outstanding little promo up as well.

    I enjoyed the interview. Very insightful. It seemed like a very love/hate relationship between teen mags and music mags in the early days. The teen mags get you press and fans and yet there was the struggle of wanting “rock band” press. Clearly at some point the decision was made to go all in with the kids’ stuff because the big debut of Eric Carr was on “Kids Are People Too” (I was hoping you guys would ask her about that appearance).
    I would love to ask Carol if the appearance on the Tom Snyder show was viewed as a failure since Ace took it in a direction that was the antithesis of 16 and Tiger Beat KISS press.
