KISS ripped off who?

So I'm spending quality time on my holiday weekend surfing YouTube (don't knock it - it makes me happy).  And recently while watching Black N Blue videos I recognized a familiar riff.  But the familiarity was not from Black N Blue (from their song Nasty Nasty).  Nope, if was from KISS (and the song Domino).  I did some googlefu.  Because I wondered - did Gene Simmons rip a riff off them?  He did per the interview at the link below with Jamie St. James.

History

lesson here.  Gene produced an album or two of BnB back in the day.  And BnB guitarist Tommy Thayer now plays guitar for KISS.  And per this article (and one @HerNameIsBuffy) He and Jamie were in a Kiss tribute band back in the day. 

audio only of BnB's Nasty Nasty because I was looking for something in the 80's and can find lots of more recent concert footage of the song but that's without Thayer.

Although if you want concert footage from last August to see that the song holds up (even with 2 different guitarists)...

The difference of course is that Gene Simmons is of course Gene Simmons and Nick is.... the son of a rock star.

      There are some versions of the bible that clean up the story of Jacob and Joseph, so that the reader is missing something. Joseph wasn't the arbitrary favorite. He was one of the only biological children of Jacob and Rachel. His brothers who plotted against him were all half brothers. Jacob wanted to marry Rachel, but was tricked into marrying her older sister Leah. The Lord made Leah very fertile to make up for it. Rachel was almost barren until Joseph. (In the meantime, Rachel and Leah both sent their maid servants to have children by Jacob.) Jacob and Rachel were eventually able to have 2 biological children: Joseph and later, Benjamin. Benjamin was too young and not apart of selling Joseph into Egypt. Some versions clean up the story to just say that Rachel and Leah are the bio-moms of all the kids and Joseph just happens to be the favorite, but this is incorrect. 

      Jacob's father-in-law arguably started the problem when he tricked Jacob into marrying the wrong sister. 

      They really don't do Biblical marriage like they used to.

      I think the best part of Gary's retelling is struggling to remember any of the names or relationships, that's what people look for in a preacher. Although I can see all the women in the story going through all the kids names until they hit the right one!

      Not exactly real life, but there's a woman I followed off/on for a long time on-line. She has always admired fundies like the ones we follow here. She was single for a while, but in her late 20s/ early 30s she met a widower with slightly larger than average family. He's fundie and now she's a fundie homeschooling stepmother. They also had a baby together. Now she's set up an account to be social-media homeschooling Quiverfull SAHM.  Because of the stepkids, they have biggish family (not Duggar big, but bigger than average.) She seemed like a sweet person, but this seems like a risky move for many reasons.
