Gene Simmons To Linkin Park's Chester Bennington: 'If We Were In Prison, I Would Make Love To You' | Photos: Getty Images

Linkin Park's Chester Benningon and Mike Shinoda recently sat down for an interview with Nicole Alvarez with KROQ in Los Angeles. During the chat, Benningon recalled a hair-raising, tongue-twirling encounter with KISS icon Gene Simmons.

As Bennington explained it: "So the first time I met Gene Si
mmons, I was like 'Whoa, that's Gene Simmons. He's like right here.' So I went over and introduced myself. 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.' I was like, 'Oh.'"

Shinoda chimed in that Simmons' wife, former Playmate Shannon Tweed, was nearby and cracked, "He would. He will make love to you."
