    Awesome episode! I really enjoyed hearing Megan’s tales from the early days…and it’s hard to believe she’s in her late 50’s – what a body – she looks amazing…

    Props to Tommy for his “Amazing Race” analogy – very solid.

    And props to Mitch for owning a laser-disk of a cinema classic!

    As far as your question, I would say taking off the make-up in 1979 would have had MUCH MORE impact than when they did…The reasons:

    1) KISS were still very popular and relevant in ’79 (despite the internal problems) and such a bold move would have sent a shockwave in music and pop culture in general. Unfortunately, KISS had fallen well below the radar by 1984 and the unmasking, while still major, probably didn’t shock the world – not as many people really cared by then…

    2) Taking off the makeup in 1979 would have meant unmasking the originals – that means all those Ace and Catman fans would have their mystery solved…By 1984 we saw the Fox and the Ankh Warrior’s true identity – no prizes for guessing which would have created a bigger buzz…

    3) The Dynasty album cover would not have looked anywhere near as cool without the makeup, and the poster included in the LP in plain face? Forget about it!

    Thanks for doing this…
