Jumpin' Gene Simmons was the lead singer of the Bill Black Combo in the early '60s (not to be confused with the schoolteacher-turned-KISS member of the '70s, '80s, and '90s).
When Hi Records attempted to get Domingo Samudio (later better known at Sam the Sham) to re-record his "Haunted House" (he recorded it for Dingo Records), Simmons volunteered to do the job.
Simmons attributed the success of this to the overexposure of British acts on the radio. (thanks, Brad Wind - Miami, FL)
