If Gene Simmons wrote another story about how or why he thinks “rock is dead”, we’d be beating dead horses. We asked Simmons’ bandmate and KISS co-founder Paul Stanley if he agreed with the statement.
“A great soundbite, but that’s about it,” he replied.
I mean, no, Stanley disagrees with that notion, but he has an interesting way of measuring the current state of rock and roll.
“My son Evan is playing with rock bands all over Los Angeles, beautiful models coming and great crowds. It proves to me that rock isn’t dead. said Rocker.
It’s hard to say whether models attending concerts have anything to do with a band’s success or the quality of their music.
“It ebbs and flows. There’s a lot of rock music being made right now, and some of it may be too derivative to really claim and take it to the next level, but it’s “But the next big rock band won’t be huge because it sounds like bands from the past. It will have a voice of its own.”
KISS’ final tour will head to South America and Europe this year, kicking off at the Sonic Temple festival in Ohio in late May. Check the website for all upcoming events.
