Gene Simmons stopped by a recent edition of CNN's iReport show to field some questions from fans, and the results proved every bit as entertainingly direct as we've come to expect from the Kiss frontman.
Ace Frehley said he's come to expect blindside insults from Gene Simmons. So he wasn't totally surprised by the recent spate of comments made by his former Kiss bandmate, who Frehley said "has no friends -- he's not respected by his peers."
Now that Kiss are on the ballot for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, fans have started daydreaming about what it might be like to see the band enshrined alongside some of their fellow rock legends. But if your dream includes seeing the original lineup play at the induction ceremony, Gene Simmons has some bad news for you.
Gene Simmons recently sat down for a Google+ Hangout video chat about what's in store for Kiss over the next several months. And not so surprisingly, the Demon says there are some awesome things coming from the band.
You might love the music of Kiss, and you might even be one of the band's biggest fans. But you're probably nowhere near as passionate (or whatever you want to call it) as the person who just dropped nearly a quarter of a million dollars for a piece of Gene Simmons' used chewing gum.
The rock band KISS is known for selling out stadiums and concerts, rocking the place, wild parties and wild women, loud guitars, makeup, explosions. You know, it's what we expect from them. KISS has done some country before...
Over the last four decades and counting, Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley of Kiss have elevated making money while making music into an art form -- and as evidenced by their latest business venture, their partnership shows no signs of slowing down.
When bands go through lineup changes, they often lose the chemistry that made them so beloved in the first place. But, according to Gene Simmons, Kiss is not one of those bands. In a new interview, he praised the contributions of guitarist Tommy Thayer and drummer Eric Singer.
