Gerard Mc Mann: "My manager was hanging out with Vini Poncia, the
producer of "Unmasked" and was checking to see if Vini was interested in
producing me at the time. He played Vinnie a few of my songs and Vinnie
apparently freaked out when he heard "Is That You" and took the tape and
played it for Kiss that night. As fate would have it, they were
convinced as Vin was, and they went on to record it."
