Skip to comments.Dwarf Bands Duel In Vegas (battle between 2 all-dwarf Kiss tribute bands threatens to turn violent)
Posted on 04/10/2006 10:03:27 AM PDT by dead
A MASSIVE spat has pitted two pint-sized performers who front rival Kiss cover bands against each other.
In one corner, it's Joey Fatale, who heads up the all-dwarf cover band MiniKiss. In the other, it's Fatale's former drummer "Little" Tim Loomis and his vertically challenged Kiss ensemble, Tiny Kiss.
In February, MiniKiss sent legal notice to Tiny Kiss - ordering it to "cease and desist from all further attempts to present, create, market or exploit a 'MiniKiss' or MiniKiss type of act."
But Tiny Kiss continued to perform at the raucous show, staged at Peter Morton's Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. The sizable dispute almost came to a violent head recently when Fatale and a gang of little toughs showed up there...
"[MiniKiss] sneaked past security pretending to be Tiny Kiss, but someone from my team recognized them and had them removed from the Hard Rock by bouncers. I think they wanted to physically confront [Loomis]."
Loomis, who stands 4 feet tall, sounded off: "[Fatale] came out here and tried to cause trouble, so I had him 86'd from the Hard Rock. The impression I got was that he was looking for a fight. He'd been threatening me over the phone."
Loomis continued, "I met him [Fatale] at a Little People of America meeting 15 years ago... Fatale got "jealous that I was getting all the chicks. So I left to start my own band called Tiny Kiss. It's not even the same as his band, because mine is three little people and one fat chick, and he's just four little people."
In 2004, Loomis got into a nasty war of words with 28-inch-tall Nelson De La Rosa after replacing him as Mets pitcher Pedro Martinez's good-luck charm.

This is one of those cutural milestones...kind of like when Miss Piggy married Kermit
Now this is too funny.
You gotta read this....
I can see that's a big difference.
Is it offensive for me to say it that way?
Someones going to get the short end of the stick.
You gotta be here.
So, is dwarf tossing making a comeback?
finally - I get to one before you did....
It just goes to show that when what you do requires no talent, anybody can do it..... :)
If it turns violent, I'm certain all will be calm shortly.
No matter . . . this is my new favorite thread EVER.
