Calling Dr. Love on the Vinyl Version

This song originally came from ‘Bad Bad Lovin’ which hadn’t been recorded yet.

One day Gene was watching The Three Stooges and something jumped out at him. It was the part when the Stooges had snuck into a hospital, stole surgical equipment and made believe they were doctors. They kept running back and forth from room to room with a public address system saying ‘Calling Dr. Howard, Dr. Fine, Dr. Howard.’ And then he thought of rewriting the chorus into ‘Calling Dr. Love’ who has a peculiar way of injecting his patients.

By the time KISS had started earning gold and platinum records and filling every arena around the world, Paul and Gene naturally started kidding each other about our individual writing styles and song titles, both of them taking a turn at each other with more and more ridiculous song titles.

Katey Sagal, sang back up backup on this track. She had been a singing waitress and part of an act called “The Group With No Name” after catching his attention one night at the restaurant,  Gene Simmons asked her to sing on the Rock And Roll All Over album. Before she made big as a TV actress, later playing the roles  Gemma Teller Morrow on Sons of Anarchy, Peg Bundy on Married with Children
