KKB, Bruce Kulick's first band created back in 1974 with his local friends,

In a brand new interview with Billboard, Paul Stanley was once again asked about the possibility of a reunion of KISS's original lineup, featuring guitarist Ace Frehley and drummer Peter Criss. He responded: "No. And that's not coming from any place of animosity. I sang on Ace's most recent album and did a video with him. I have the connection and the reconnection and to celebrate the good things we've done together is terrific. The band as it is — I've played with [current KISS drummer] Eric Singer for, I think, 25 years and Tommy's [Thayer, guitar] been in the band probably 15 years at this point. I have no thoughts of re-visiting the past. With that said, I am happy to enhance or do whatever I can for anyone who has helped put me where I am, but that doesn't include getting hitched again to somebody I unhitched from."

Kiss released “Monster” in 2012, an album that rightfully pleased their fans a lot! So, it was about time they were coming back to Europe after 3 years and their “Sonic Boom Over Europe” tour in 2010.

KISS bassist/vocalist Gene Simmons will release his next book, "On Power", on November 14 via Dey Street Books (formerly It Books), an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers. Simmons told "The Ride With JMV" on 107.5/1070 The Fan that the book is about how "everybody can make more money and actually become relatively rich." He explained: "There are certainly enough economists in the world who have broken through the glass ceiling and taken the message out there that we've always assumed that the top should only be the people that are the smartest and the richest and all that stuff, and that the masses — the great unwashed masses — can never attain the heights, and that is patently untrue."

Gene Simmons in a recent interview he gave to Rolling Stone said that he doesn’t like hip-hop  music at all and he predicted the end for rap music. “"I'm looking forward to music coming back to lyrics and melody, instead of just talking. A song, as far as I'm concerned, is by definition lyric and melody … or just melody”, Simmons added. He also predicted rap’s death: "Rap will die. Next year, ten years from now, at some point, and then something else will come along. And all that is good and healthy." Later on the same interview he also made a connection of rap music with gangsters: “I don't have the cultural background to appreciate being a gangster. Of course that's not what it's all about, but that's where it comes from. That's the heart and soul of it. It came from the streets”. So, prepare for the media and social media war to come…
