Anna Dalva (guitar and vocals) *

BULLFROG BHEER late 1968 :

* Late 1967 / early 1968 Anna Dalva (guitar / vocals) was in the first line-up of BULLFROG BHEER, together with Gene Simmons (bass / vocals) and drummer Stan Singer. At the time Anna was only 16 years old, while Gene Simmons was a teacher in upstate New York.
Bullfrog Bheer had rehearsals at Anna Dalva’s parents garage.
Together with Gene Simmons, Anna Dalva wrote "Movin' On" and a heavy Rock song entitled  "Stay".
According to Anna Dalva, Gene slept on her couch for about a year and called his mom every night to talk to her in Hebrew. Anna’s mom didn’t allow her to tour with the band. Soon after Anna was replaced by Steve Coronel late 1968. Later on Anna Dalva wrote for Motown.
"Movin' On" is performed live by Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley pre-KISS band
RAINBOW (1971).
The song also appeared on a
WICKED LESTER (August 7, 1971) reel to reel tape.

By surprise, Gene Simmons played me "Movin' On" during my private Vault Experience in Amsterdam, July 22, 2018. (see video below - "Movin' On" starts around 4:20)
