Gene Simmons Update


Gene Simmons:

ROCK IS DEAD - that was the headline in a recent interview I did, of course, taken out of context. That's okay.
It's still true.
Name a rock band in the last 30 years that has risen to iconic level. Nirvana? Anyone else?
Name iconic rock acts in the first 30 years – from 1958 through 1988 – ELVIS, THE BEATLES, THE STONES, LED ZEPPELIN, PINK FLOYD, SPRINGSTEEN, AC/DC, METALLICA and MOTOWN, and countless more.
Yesterday KISS headlined a terrific event called FASHION ROCKS. It was on CBS.
There were some terrific acts on the bill. Jennifer Lopez, Nicki Minaj, sure, band called Perry, and many more. Including hosting by Justin Bieber and various models.
Honestly, even though the event is called FASHION ROCKS, and even though KISS closed the show and headlined..... THIS WAS THE ONE AND ONLY ROCK BAND ON THE ENTIRE BILL.
Defense rests, your Honor.
