Larry King Bumps Into KISS Rocker Gene Simmons At A Los Angeles Restaurant

On the surface, they don't seem to have too much in common.

But retired broadcaster Larry King certainly seemed to enjoy his chat with rocker Gene Simmons last night, after the pair bumped into each other at a Los Angeles restaurant.

Looking sporty in a red baseball cap and jacket, the 77-year-old television star was enjoying a meal with his wife Shawn and their sons Chance, 12, and ten-year-old Cannon at California Pizza Kitchen.

And when the family group bumped into Simmons, a rocker with band Kiss, the group had an animated conversation, with the 61-year-old bassist chatting away to the boys.

Dressed in a brown suit jacket and black shirt, Simmons looked a smart contrast to his more familiar outrageous stage outfits, as he arrived at the restaurant.

Meanwhile, King's family were probably hoping to finish their meal in time to catch King's guest performance on U.S. TV show Better With You.

Making a point: King's two young sons seem absorbed with Simmons' conversation
The talk show host came out of television retirement to appear as himself on the ABC comedy show which saw him dish out advice to character Ben (Josh Cooke).

King quit his long running nightly show last year to spend more time with his family.

Piers Morgan has since taken over his time slot on CNN with his own show, Piers Morgan Tonight.
