GENE SIMMONS Talks to Examiner.com About New Book 'Me Inc'

 
A new Examiner.com interview with Gene Simmons of KISS is now online.

http://www.examiner.com/article/interview-with-gene-simmons-of-kiss-on-me-inc 

With the limited amount of time we (or should I say he?) had to talk, it focuses mostly on the book and his philosophy, but there are few KISS-related nuggets asked and answered. Topic include:

-Why men shouldn't marry in their 20s or even 30s
-How his love for his mother cemented his work ethic
-What his wife Shannon Tweed really thinks about KISS and their music
-The Demon's definition for success
-His thoughts about penning another memoir

Dallas, TX - Oct 14, 2014.  North American syndicated Rock radio show and website InTheStudio with Redbeard: The Stories Behind History's Greatest Rock Bands  celebrates the 25th anniversary of Motley Crue's 1989 #1 seller Dr. Feelgood.

The '80s was a decade of excess and Motley Crue was its poster child and willing participant.  Their reckless abandonment and debauchery has been well documented, but what makes the Motley Crue story so fascinating is that with all the increasing mayhem came an unbelievable string of hit songs and albums.
