    Has anybody been watching, "Gene Simmons' Rock School" on VH-1? Gene is basically an arrogant, money grubbing a**hole, but the show is pretty damned entertaining.

    I've seen the show and it's just sad, really. For all Gene's supposed
    intellectualism, there's not much evidence of it here. He's done alright
    for himself, sure, but plenty of vapid pricks have gotten lucky.

    Default Kiss gave rock and roll to you

    I just heared an interview with Gene. He and his band take credit for the following items:

    - internet
    - distortion
    - condoms
    - electricity
    - modern medicine
    - fire
    - leather
    - guitar
    - plumbing
    - assembly line
    - cotton gin
    - reality television

    That was all I had time to listen to. What a genius! I can't believe someone this GREAT has meant so much during my lifetime. I feel so lucky just to have seen him play. This guy has had his hand in developing EVERYTHING!

    Q: Recording the album took so long your Australian tour last year was cancelled. What was it like in the studio? There's a history of tension between you and Eddie Van Halen...

    DLR: It was like a stand off in a Chuck Norris movie. We each had the laser dot on everybody's forehead waiting for the other guy to blink. Except for Wolfie, he had a Super Soaker ...

    Very true! The guy can generate the dough, no doubt about it. Got plenty of women that I wish I had too. It would be funny though to sit down and have a drink with this guy to listen to his stories and hear just how "important" he is.

    Kiss fans, please don't take offense. I do like the band (somewhat) and we as VH fans have some of our own garbage to go through (as far as how fans are "treated"). Gene just makes me laugh though.

    If VH came out with a coffin, I'd buy it too.

    Okay.. wait a minute. Big fan, but I think that is about where it would stop.

    No offense taken. As a lifelong KISS fan, I shake my head constantly at some of the stuff Gene says and does. Take him with a grain of salt.

    I am really enjoying this show. I love it when Gene plays acoustic and sings, shows what a talent he really is. He wrote and sang some mutha fucking great songs.

    They just performed in a town near Columbus, OH for the Honda Plant employees. They did a 16 song set and I would love to know what they would charge for that sort of show. Probably a bundle.

    I'm bumping this cos UK's channel 4 is finally showing Rock School and I saw it for the first time last night. I laughed my ass off!! This is one of the funniest things I have seen in a long time. I met Gene when I was 17 and I gotta say, he seemed a really laid back bloke and, tho busy with gorgeous six foot blonde glued to his side, he had no problem signing for me and giving me a kiss on the cheek. He was great.

    Seeing him work in this nose-in-the-air school was, as an english woman, really amusing. Some of the kids were berating him for his views on money, which is kinda unreal, cos the fees for this school are as much as a small nations national debt!!! Mom and dad would be buying these kids in 7 or 8 years time, a nice mercedes or porche for passing their driving test.

    Gene plays the rock god role in every aspect of his working life and I know that some people find that vulgar. I find it brilliantly funny. Cant wait to see the rest of this show.
