That’s not actually Paul Stanley; it’s Bobby Jensen playing the part of the Starchild in the Minneapolis-based classic rock tribute band Hairball in concert. But either way, it’s still pretty badass (at least until you remember the tragic Great White fire of 2003, and start to wonder why the hell there weren’t more contingencies in place to prevent this kind of accident).
After the incident, Jensen, who also performs in an Alice Cooper tribute act, spoke to Ultimate Classic Rock and said, “I live an Evil Knievel kind of life, so if I’m on fire a little bit, I don’t care, that’s just part of the fun. I knew I was on fire right away, and that wasn’t a wig, that’s my hair. It was really nice and foofy before the show, now I have a much better Alice Cooper cut.”
(This insanely metal moment actually happened over Valentine’s Day weekend in 2019, but the band returned to Sioux City again this year, making the video spread like fire all over again.)
