The Demon aims for KISS reunion
By Trevor Wilhelm, The Windsor StarJuly 11, 2009
WINDSOR, Ont. -- Randy Girard loves his wife, but she’s no blood-spitting Demon.
Girard will take a nostalgic, ear-splitting walk down memory lane Saturday night as he sits in the crowd at Caesars Windsor Colosseum to watch a little hard rock quartet known as Kiss.
It goes back a long way, but he has a connection to the grease paint-wearing, big-haired band that other aspiring musicians would kill for. On Dec. 22, 1974, his old band Joe played to a capacity crowd in London, Ont., as the warmup act for Kiss.
He later hung out in the dressing room with Gene Simmons, also known by his stage persona The Demon, and the rest of the band.
