Bullshit or Not! Don Rickles replaced Paul Stanley in KISS!

Reports have surfaced that during the entire 1977-78 KISS Alive II tour, Don Rickles secretly replaced lead singer Paul Stanley.
Bullshit or Not?
Seriously, what really went down was that Cher, (then inexplicably dating KISS bassist Gene Simmons) actually replaced Paul Stanley, who had selflessly taken several months off to finally sleep with the thousands of KISS groupies that were almost hopelessly backlogged. That same year in an extraordinary drunken blackout stupor, Ace Frehley once drove a Porsche out of an airplane, and in midair, threw a TV set out of the car on the way down, and then somehow landed in Hugh Hefner's Playboy Mansion swimming pool largely uninjured. Miraculously, he only suffered some facial scarring. Drummer Peter Criss wasn't so lucky. He discovered what happens when a small, expensive sports car meets a densely wooded area at a high rate of speed. And no shit-- while Criss recovered from his auto injuries, he was secretly replaced by future Late Night with David Letterman drummer Anton Fig.

R.I.P. Don Rickles..
