“He grabs me by the shoulders, and he says, ‘You are a powerful and talented young man.’ He’s staring at me in my eyes and says, ‘If we were in prison, I would make love to you.’” — Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington describing his first meeting with Gene Simmons
KISS helps parents learn to rock!
Simmons, who voted for Obama in 2008, now calls him “a piss-poor president” but “a wonderful family man.”
New York City’s Ed Sullivan Theater may not have rock and rolled all night on Wednesday (October 10) for the 50th episode of Live On Letterman. But for nearly an hour (more, if you count the soundcheck), KISS shook the legendary theater with hard rock anthem after anthem… and probably had the fire marshall paying close attention to every bit of pyro onstage.
The live streaming concert, which you can watch below, is part of the Live on Letterman series and comes just one day after the band — whose lineup now includes founders Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley, along with drummer Eric Singer and guitarist Tommy Thayer — released their latest album, “Monster.”
efore heading in for her audition, Tweed-Simmons said, “I really just want to step out of being the daughter of Gene Simmons from KISS. I want to be my own person and hopefully this is the way to just show the world who I am.”
We take a close look at which rock artists are siding with President Obama, and who’s pulling for Mitt Romney. If it were up to bands, Obama would win in a landslide. Take a peek and see which way your favorites lean politically.
Few were surprised when Gene Simmons, brazen KISS leader and shameless marketer, turned his family into subjects of a reality show in 2006. Now, however, it’s time for the cameras to go.
Gene Simmons used to famously say that he and Shannon Tweed were “happily unmarried.” The two dated for nearly three decades before he finally popped the question. So Gene, what took so long?
A person in the Denver area is selling a 1970 Volkswagen Beetle which has been customized to look like Gene Simmons head from the band KISS.
