part 1 of an episode of the henry rollins show, in which he talks to gene simmons.
i’m no kiss fan, nor do i agree with the vast majority of what gene says, but it’s a very odd situation where his honesty and braggadocio regarding the fact that he’s rich as fuck and has done everything he has done in his life for the sake of money make listening to him speak a hugely compelling experience. we’re treated to so many people claiming the way of the artiste, and i guess it’s weird and kinda cool to get pretty much the opposite of that.
"once you don’t have to work for a living, you become (pardon my bluntness) filthy rich, you don’t have the right to complain about anything."
worthwhile watch if that seems at all interesting to you.
i play a lot of music, and have done since i was 13.
bass in notebooks and thin privilege.
guitar in friends in america, in wrecks and billy ray osiris.
i'm a self-trained audio engineer.
english student at stirling university, final year.
i also go to the gym.
when i'm not doing all that, i work in a supermarket but that's rubbish.
