    Rumor has it you can also contact Gene’s people about some of the unadvertised Home Vault experiences that are available and slightly cheaper than the full Home Vault experience:

    -Lawn Vault ($7500) – You and up to four friends can watch Gene cut your grass for 3 minutes (no professional video equipment allowed), after which he will present you with your vault along with a souvenir, replica Demon bass guitar that is actually a working weed eater (batteries not included).

    -Barbecue Vault ($12,500) – Gene will grill hamburgers and hot dogs for you and up to eight friends (Gene will bring the condiments however you must supply the meat and buns). Max time – 25 minutes. Gene will present you with your vault along with fake blood he coughs up that can be used as ketchup

    -Bathroom Vault ($5000) - Gene will greet you in the shower for up to 1 minute, and then present you a vault and a special collector’s bar of soap, previously used by Gene himself

    Please note that other fabulous vault experiences will be announced in the coming months

    I've always thought it looked like Doll hair, which is extra creepy....

    Gotta love how charging thousands of dollars for a box set of demos is advertised as being something "for the fans".

    Gene won't do anything unless there's a cheque involved these days.

    I read a story about him being approached by a group of (female) lawyers who were dining in the same restaurant as him. They wanted him to stick his tongue out. His response: 'What's it worth to you?' (let's hope he was only talking money). The lawyers had a whip-round and paid him several hundred dollars, after which Gene obliged.

    Apparently, he gave all the dosh to a homeless woman who was begging outside the restaurant. Or so the story went.

    $50,000/25 people max.allowed = $2,000 each for 2 hours with Gene and you get 1 Vault.

    Doesn't sound like such a great deal huh?

    Nice Freudian slip by Hoda: ".. different price degradations..." You said it! Classic.

    LOL...I love KISS, but wouldn't it serve him right if not a single person took him up on the $50,000 offer?

    Don't try too hard to be funny in this thread, you'll get your post deleted. Not that anyone did that to me...

    He also said, "I've wanted to do this box set ever since I was a little boy."

    Knowing what's in his heart, though, I guess it's probably true!

    It’s basically funding a trip around the world for a year and just dropping a vault a week off and banking the cash.
    It’s in no way thanking many fans if 99.99% are priced out.

    I deleted my own post about his hair: a) because it wasn't funny, and b) because I realised after writing it that I could be looking like that in the not too distant future..
