Who was first with the top hat, King or Cooper?

Probably Cooper.  He was also one of the first with face paint.  He should sue Gene Simmons. :cool:

Gene's is based on the glam scene of New York from the early 70s while King's is corpsepaint meant to give his outward appearance a connection with the lyrics and style of the music.

Yeah, how awesome is it to see Gene "The Demon" Simmons singing back up to God Gave Rock and Roll to You?  It would be like King doing a version of  Battle Hymn of the Republic. :gah:

Fag! :fingers:

I was working at a Lady's house and a chimney sweep company showed up and the guy had a top hat on and I smiled and said "Hey I like that hat", he said "thanks". I just said to him "King Diamond". He looked like a deer in the headlights at me. I just laughted.  :king:

The top hat is cool but I hope King knows that we don't care if he has a bald spot.
