GENE SIMMONS: "KISS IS NOT A CHARITY"

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.
During a recent appearance on "The SDR Show", Simmons was asked what keeps KISS motivated to continue making new records after more than four decades in the business. He responded: "That's less of an incentive, because downloading and filesharing… People have convinced themselves they don't wanna pay for stuff. And last time I checked, KISS is not a charity. We're philanthropic, but I'll be the one that decides how much I give and where. I don't want some college kid to decide, 'You have enough money. I don't wanna pay for your record.' Okay, then go download and RADIOHEAD record and see what happ… No, I ain't about that. Make a distinction between commerce and philanthropy. So the idea of doing another KISS record, unless and if there's a financial model that works, personally I'm not interested in it."
