GENE SIMMONS THINKS HE SHOULD BE THROWN OUT OF KISS
I found the following quote from a recent interview with Gene Simmons to be (inadvertently) hilarious:
“This is electric church, and no one on that stage — me or anyone else — wears the makeup and platform heels by some kind of birthright. This ain’t Europe; just ’cause your dad was king doesn’t make you the king. You’ve got to earn it. And when you defile KISS, you should be thrown out.”
Gene is referring to dudes like Ace Frehley, Peter Criss and Vinnie Vincent, of course. But I have to wonder what he thinks they did that was worse than this:
Or, for that matter, dressing up dudes who aren’t original members of Kiss in the same exact costumes as the original members of Kiss as though that were the same thing. Say what you will about Axl Rose, but he never made Robin Finck wear a top hat.
I know that at this point saying Gene Simmons is a sell-out about as insightful as saying that Ronnie James Dio is a midget, but seriously, the cojones on that dude just never cease to amaze me. A few people have told me that the new Kiss album is actually pretty good, but I can’t even bring myself to illegally download it because I just hate this fucker so much.
I wish Shannon Tweed would have a nervous breakdown and go all Brynn Hartman on his ass already.
