Not surprising to note that the most odious man in rock n roll , Gene $immons, has again offended people with his comments. This time the buffoon with the ridiculous looking wig has been caught with his foot well and truly in his mouth, and has hit the headlines again for all the wrong reasons.
Simmons has claimed that “poor people should show millionaires more appreciation”, and that “without the 1% of super-rich, including himself, the economy would not thrive and the world would descend into chaos. The one percent pays 80 percent of all taxes. Fifty percent of the population of the US pays no taxes. The one percent provides all the jobs for everybody else. If the one percent didn’t exist there would be chaos and the economy would drop dead,” he told UTSanDiego.com. Simmons said, “Try being nice to rich people. I don’t remember the last poor person who gave me a job.” What a turd. For a guy who is work 175 million pounds, and has acquired his wealth from many working class (and working poor) people, an ounce of humility would be too much to ask wouldnt it. How about opening up the Gene Simmons Hospital ? How much bloody money does one person need anyway ?
For a man who spent his entire career singing about his crotch and playing big dumb rock to a largely teenage audience – his relevance in 2014 is way overstated. And before all the blindly devoted KI$$ naysayers start jumping up and down, let me state that I loved big dumb rock – during adolescence. Get the point, cartoon rock for teens and now, pre teens.
Simmons says, “People often confuse my pride and self-confidence with arrogance. I’m like an animal in the jungle that pisses on the ground and doesn’t ask permission,” he said. Big surprise there, Simmons talking in cliches. “We are your humble servants”, “You are my bosses” – he says of KI$$ fans. Hopefully his latest verbal diatrebe will open up the eyes of some KISS drones to what a bore he really is. What astounds me is that interviewers and the media at large still care what he has to say – when in reality he has been trotting out the same self absorbed clichés for 30 years. His main topics of conversation are – himself, his wealth and his appendage. He tries to come across as an intellectual, yet has the wit and repartee of an oaf – and consequently ends up sounding like the obnoxius and delusional git that he is. When will he and KI$$ go away? Enough already, go away.

If you want to hear another example of this obnoxious buffoon, listen to the interview he did a few years back with Terry Gross on NPR. Simmons feels threatened by Gross’ superior intellect. https://archive.org/details/TerryGrossInterviewWithGeneSimmons
