He was close to getting the role, plus he even offered to do the whole Soundtrack album as well if he got the part, but when director, Charles Martin Smith told Blackie that they got Fastway to do the Soundtrack and that he would be lip syncing to them instead Blackie refused the role saying to Smith that he didn't need Fastway's music when he has his own band to do the music.
Kiss Co-founder and Bassist, Gene Simmons was offered the role of Sammi Curr, he opted the cameo role of Rock DJ and Friend of Eddie, Nuke instead. Simmons claimed that he did this because his idol growing up was famous Rock DJ, Wolfman Jack and it was his tribute to him.
