Rock Legend Gene Simmons surprisingly revealed that he has no friends. Despite being a world class traveler and having come into contact with thousands of people in his music career… he has no friends.
Even today as I sit here, other than Paul [Stanley], and we only get together when we do stuff for the band… How do I say this without sounding inhuman? I don’t have friends,” Simmons told Ken Sharp of Goldmine.
Yeah, if friends means, ‘Gee, I don’t know what I’m going to do this afternoon. Hey, you want to come over and hang out?’ I’m more interested in what I want to do, and I don’t want to pretend that I’m interested in what you want to do because I am not.
Simmons is set to soon rap up a final tour with his rock band, Kiss. Although Simmons says the group is done touring for good after this final run…he is open to any young generation impersonating his band down the line. He says:
“We don’t know if it’s [going to be in] New York,” he said. “I have good reasons why it should be, but the important thing is when it’s the last show, it’ll be the last show. Kiss the touring band will stop. But the touring band. Kiss will continue in other ways. I have no problems with four deserving 20-year-olds sticking the makeup back on and hiding their identity.
