I cant imagine Gene Simmons would care about Rollins,he only really likes to talk about how great he is himself.

At least Gene believes he is being honet,he's not really trying to get one over on anyone.

But Rollins has always spoken about hos love of many bands who could be considered bloated.

I'm watching/listening to the full interview and he reminds me of James Brown in that he doesn't understand why anyone complains about anything ever because if everyone was like him (and everyone should be like him) there'd be no problems in this world.

Yeah,he believes he's the greatest thing ever,but so what. Doesn't mean you have to believe it.


I don't care about that era of Gene/Kiss (although I'd go see them again) They put themselves across differently in the 70's although still very full of confidence

Very arrogant but in a different way. No more likeable. Paul very much IS Kiss though.

I think Simmons point that when rock bands stopped acting like rockstars and became humble that was when the public lost interest & moved on to rappers. That's probably not without merit.
The average punter on the street is hooked in by the rockstar persona. Indepth discussions about the technicalities of music etc are all pie in the sky concepts to Joe public. They don't understand it. But they understand the dream of making loads of money, shagging models, living it up, taking loads of drugs, shagging models & shagging models.

He didn't stop doing those things, people just got bored of the one trick.

There's a load of videos up YouTube saying Paul Stanley is using pre recorded vocals, certainly for the current tour & probably in the past as well.

Yeah,all sorts of arguing over that and the fact that Ace and Peter are not back for the last tour and what the setlist is and so on.

Pauls voice is fucked though. Like really fucked.
