    No human communication is 100% free of bias. Objectivity is an ideal, never truly a reality.

    Gene’s interview with Terry Gross was awful. He came onto her on the air, made numerous condescending and sexist remarks, and even insulted her as a fellow Jew (by calling her a Gentile—not that there’s anything wrong with being a non-Jew, but Gene acted as though there was).

    Reading some of these posts makes me feel like I'm at the cool kids' table in the lunchroom & they're firing off remarks about the non-cool kid who happens to be wealthier than they are.

    How do you guys feel about Nickelback?

    Gene is who he is. In the history of R&R, obnoxious, presumptuous, conceited jerks are fairly common. Gene might not even be in the top 10 worst if you make a list. It's his job to act the way he does, he has a reputation to uphold. I think he believes he still has a lot of fans who worship the ground he walks on based on the prices quoted. A lot of his fans are close to his age and probably don't want to burn any retirement $$ on him, but there are probably some wealthy fans that have that kind of spare money and may have him over to impress their friends......

    Big deal. I travel a lot for work. A week in Louisiana or Oklahoma is under 2500.

    That's airfare, hotel, rental car, and food

    So he pockets 47500.

    For that he better paint my house, replace the roof, and whatever else I can think of.

    Yep! Regardless of what someone thinks of Gene (and the other KISS members), the fact is, they played the game, and they won.

    For that kind of money, I'd want him to bring along his better half....

    I knew Gene around 1999-2000 and he was always fretting about money as appears to be his nature.

    Which is to say, if you wrote his site and said "I only got ten grand, but i'm local," the response would be, "OK, but it is a no-quote deal. Gene will be right over."

    Gotta spend to save!

    I don't know the man personally. My impression of Gene as I have gleaned from the media is not exactly favorable. KISS is not my cup of tea musically, either. I will say this, however: Anybody who can get up in front of thousands of people with all that makeup, costumes, and platform shoes and under all those bright, blazing-hot lights and deliver that kind of performance for two-plus hours with that level of showmanship has to command a certain amount of respect. They earned a boatload of money by being fabulously entertaining.

    I suspect that the guys in KISS are also much better musicians than they are sometimes believed to be.

    The kicker is, it will take you another 50 grand to get him to leave afterwards.

  16. To paraphrase a line from 'The Godfather': Take Shannon, leave the CD's.

    I don't know how he's got time for deliveries, I thought I heard the ASPCA is suing him for squeezing nickels so hard, the buffaloes were dying en masse.

    I found that interview. Nothing for nothing, but I think Simmons should be wearing that codpiece on his shoulders.

    Anyone who is willing to pay $50K to meet Gene Simmons absolutely deserves to meet Gene Simmons.

    I'm thankful not meeting him is free.
