    If Tom Brown was such a good saxophone player, why did he need the black face and stupid looking costume?

    Funny thing, Tom Brown was probably a better sax player than “KISS” are collectively guitar players. Both adopted stupid costumes, but guess who made a billion dollars?

    “Mr. Brown, I have some good news for you! The employment agency has found the perfect job for you! Make sure you bring your own baggy white pants and blackface make-up. You will be supplied the sax. Congrats!”

    Actually I have had worse jobs!
