Gene Simmons Defends the 1 Percent, Claims Half of Americans Pay No Taxes: ‘Try Being Nice to Rich People’
In an interview with The San Diego Union-Tribune, Simmons defended his one percent-er status, saying that without his ilk, “there would be chaos.”
It’s surprising that it hasn’t happened before now, but today KISS announced their first-ever residency in Las Vegas.
At 7:04 yesterday the temperature in Dallas was 99 degrees with 30 % humidity. That didn’t stop KISS, Def Leppard and Kobra and the Lotus from dressing up in rock gear and giving all they had!
Normally, admitting you’ve eaten food from a half-dozen restaurants in one sitting would make you gluttonous. Here it makes you even cooler!
If KISS goes on last, we hope there’s at least 15 minutes between sets. We need time to apply the make-up, you know.
We’re just excited to have food that’s not prepared quickly and wrapped in wax paper.
We’re not sure we’ll be able to survive this blissful rock overload…
While taking shots at Jann Wenner, Patti Smith and others, Stanley reaffirmed his speech at the Rock Hall induction ceremony and clarifies that it was Gene Simmons, not him, who said those ‘borderline racist’ comments.
Over the weekend, HBO aired this year’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony, which included the long-awaited induction of KISS. There was a lot of speculation as to how that would go down in the weeks leading up to the event given that there was lots of sniping in the press between founding members Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons (who are both still in the band) and Ace Frehley and Peter Criss (who are not).
Billy Kidd talked to Paul Stanley of KISS about his new book, ‘Face The Music: A Life Exposed’, and in the interview Paul talked about his fans, what he thinks of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and of course why he wrote the book.
