MP3 : Gerard McMann - " Is That You " Cost: $0.99 (USD)
WMA video : Gerard McMann about the writing of "Is That You"
From: Bob Deeb (Gerard McMann / G TOM MAC management - June 28, 2006)  
Gerard McMann wrote “Is That You?” for Kiss' 1980 Unmasked album.

Gerard Mc Mann: "My manager was hanging out with Vini Poncia, the producer of "Unmasked" and was checking to see if Vini was interested in producing me at the time. He played Vinnie a few of my songs and Vinnie apparently freaked out when he heard "Is That You" and took the tape and played it for Kiss that night. As fate would have it, they were convinced as Vin was, and they went on to record it."

for only $0.99 (USD), Gerard Mc Mann's original demo is available for download at (payment via PayPal).
