Gene Simmons: Hard Work, Many Pursuits Are the Kiss of Success


Gene Simmons has rock star written all over him, and that can be a good thing and a bad thing. As a bassist, singer and founding member of the iconic '70s hard-rock band Kiss, Simmons (pictured) is frequently associated with the wild lifestyle of many famous musicians, including drug and alcohol abuse.

"But I've never been high or drunk in my life," says Simmons, adding that he's been with his romantic partner, Shannon Tweed, for 28 years and has two children with her. "But I've never been married."
