KISS bassist/vocalist Gene Simmons who's known for being a dick, is still getting his panties in a bunch over some lame comment Santana made 4 years ago! Simmons had some harsh words for Carlos Santana during a Thursday morning (June 11, 2009) interview on FOX5 News: Live In Las Vegas.
When asked about plans for an upcoming KISS album, Simmons talked of plans for a new tour and out of nowhere, took a swipe at Hard Rock headliner Santana! "It's time for us to go out and show the little boys how the big boys do it," the 59-year-old said. "I'm sick and tired of these bands like Carlos Santana looking at his shoes and thinking that's a rock concert. Get off the stage," Simmons said.
There has been an ongoing feud between Simmons and Santana since 2005 when Santana questioned Simmons' musical ability and labeled him "Las Vegas entertainment." (which is pretty funny because Santana's the one performing in Vegas!) Santana said, "Simmons is not a musician, he's an entertainer. (A musician is an entertainer idiot! ..just sayin') He went on to say, "A musician is John Coltrane, Bob Marley. KISS is Las Vegas entertainment, so he wouldn't know what music is anyway. That's why he wears all that stuff. A musician doesn't need the mask and the mascara. There's a difference between an entertainer and a musician." NEWS FLASH! Musicians are entertainers, if you expect to sell out shows you can't just stand there like a moron... just throwing that out there!
I think it's pretty funny that Simmons is still mad 4 years later over something so stupid! Obviously, Santana realizes how dumb he sounded after he made that idiot statement 4 years ago, due to the fact that musicians are entertainers! These two grown men are getting their panties in a bunch and acting like little girls! It's been 4 years Simmons, you're 60, look 70 and act like a 5 year old, GET OVER IT!
