GENE SIMMONS Is Not Interested In Making Another KISS Album 'Unless And If There's A Financial Model That Works'

Gene Simmons says that he is not interested in producing another KISS studio album "unless and if there's a financial model that works" to make it worthwhile for the band to write and record new music.

Lead singer of KISS and Rock God, Gene Simmons joins Ralph and Zac Amico (sitting in for Jay) in studio this week for an episode that is instantly a classic! Ralph admits to an embarrassing story having to do with Gene, Gene and Zac have a Michael Jackson joke battle, everyone admits the longest they've ever gone without sex, and plenty more funny and shocking stories are shared. The guys also get serious and discuss the current state and future of music, Gene's new resort and casino - Rock and Brews, the success of KISS, Gene's firsts and so much more!

I couldn’t find a babysitter.

It’s happened to everyone – well at least everyone who is a parent with two X chromosomes. At some point, despite your best efforts, your childcare will fail you. And when it happens, it won’t be a low-key day at the office. It will be the day of a big presentation, the morning of an important hearing.

Gene Simmons isn't just a god of rock and roll, he is also keen on investing in the stock market.
