“Haunted House” (1964)
Jumpin’ Gene Simmons
No, the KISS Bassist did not change career and he supposedly changed his name to honour this original artist. However, with no verifiable sources, this allegation is unsubstantiated. This original act is a rockabilly singer and songwriter who rose to fame from this novelty single. I love it because after I heard a cover by John Fogerty, I had to look into its history and learn about who first released this track.
