That's funny. Degrading. lol. In that case, 99% of work is degrading, by that standard.

Disagree. I've done some voluntary work with disabled kids which was well worth doing, hopefully for all parties.

I also don't see why any form of gainful employment would seem "degrading" to an individual unless they felt "above" doing it in some way.

Shit, talk about Movie Star, BNB, Harlow, Shake The Faith, the music that he liked when growing up and the bands he follows. So much outside of KISS.
Yep. Really varied and wonderful taste and influences.
Which is why Id love him to do a project that is a passion to him away from the day job with Kiss. Same with Eric and his passions
Clearly he can apply himself in any situation. Greatly respected and TBH, Id much rather meet Tommy, or Bruce over Ace any day.
Genuine and lovely guy. and with do far more than look disinterested, thumbs up and point at you once the cheque clears

Voluntary work, as in volunteering?

Being used by the machine to make money whilst paying me as little as possible...yes...I am above that.

As we all are.

Yes, voluntary work - volunteering - doing a job or jobs for non-financial reasons.

I've done several events for Disabled Kids, Children in need and for a Women's shelter. I felt less like a peice of shit those days.

If it was closer to me, I'd go. Met him twice already. Nice guy, plus he's a member of KISS.
He doesn't do many appearances on the east coast

That’s sounds kind of neat. If the tables are first come first serve, I would hope people are decent about it, and most of all don’t send one person in first to “save” seats for your 3 friends who are on the way in behind you.
Hopefully there is no rush as I believe Tommy is providing the table service. He serves the appetizers first for the guests, then their spaghetti dishes, and then tops up their after dinner coffees..
