much different...

Regarding your "God Gave Rock & Roll To You" question below, the Argent version is MUCH different. ARGENT was a progressive keyboard driven band featuring Rod Argent and Russ Ballard...Russ went on to write songs for MANY different arists throughout the past 30 years.

Besides giving the KISS version a much harder edge, Gene & Paul also re-wrote a great deal of the lyrics. That's probably where the "2" part comes in.

Here is a 30 sec snippet of the original "GGR&R2U" from Argent's 1973 album.

By the way, is there a way to make it so that replies to postings will bump up the thread to the top of the forum? It just seems like certain threads, even with a number of replies, get buried.

Either way, thanks for maintaining this site...everything rocks!
