About Gene Simmons:
International rock legend Gene Simmons is a serial entrepreneur, philanthropist, and media mogul. Simmons has achieved success that reaches far beyond his music career, extending into television shows, films, publishing, merchandising, worldwide restaurants, consumer products and more.
Simmons formed KISS in 1972 with Paul Stanley. Inspired by his love of comic books and horror films, he conceived the concept of face paint for the band, which combined with elaborate costumes, frenetic stage performances and ostentatious concert effects catapulted KISS to international stardom and a coveted position as one of the most recognized rock and roll bands in the world.
Today, KISS has millions of fans around the world, known as the KISS Army. With over 100 million CDs and DVDs sold worldwide, KISS continues to sell out stadiums and arenas around the world, breaking box-office records set by Elvis and the Beatles.
KISS was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2014 and received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1999.
A merchandising giant, Simmons’ keen business acumen has expanded the KISS brand beyond the stage. With more than 5,000 licensed/merchandised items, KISS has generated more money from merchandising and trademark deals than any other band in music history.
Simmons is renowned and sought after worldwide as a notable and opinionated media commentator on a diverse range of topics from politics to business.
