In the words of his mother:
"when Lance was a pre-teen and young teen he was a HUGE KISS fan--he had posters all over his room--he was such a fan we got tickets to KISS in Mpls and Howard took he and his sister there in a single engine plane through bad weather so he could get to the concert--we were stone deaf parents!!!"
In the words of his father:
"What really happened is that the weather was good starting out but we hit unexpected bad weather which I was able to handle near Minneapolis. We made it on time and the first thing Lance saw when he got in was the KISS leader in full costoom in the hall way. He swore to me that it wasn't really Gene Simmonds but someboy immitating him. It is funny how kids think. We were in a Cherokee Warrior that was operated by the flying club. Alan Reman went with us because I did not go to the concert."
