I was interested in his book about the recordings he found in the Universal vault while working in the 1996 remasters. I met Robert at a KISS Expo in 2017 and he told me he was working on it and planning for a release around christmas 2018. Too bad that didn't happen either

I never heard of this before BUT do know something went down between Conte and P&G. I never asked the details of it.

He said in the podcast that he didn't want the label throwing things away in the dumpster, and they told him that he'll be fired if he kept on complaining.

I think I got his preview package stashed away somewhere. Someone should ask 3 Sides about this. They'd probably say its ok cuz he didn't take any money up front.

One of the better interviews of this podcast. I wish that he had more time to inspect these vaults.

Very likely this stuff doesn't even exist any more.

I think you need to provide a source for this accusation.

KISS wasn't listed.
That was not a complete list. It was a list of notable artists. Universal has gone out of their way to not detail what has been lost.

Fair enough. Just something for folk to judge the veracity of the suggestion.
