Gene Simmons is challenging Beyonce to perform in his gear.
In a new interview, the Kiss bassist-singer said it's not easy explaining, "We work hard at it. No drugs, no booze, no smoking. None of that stupid rock 'n' roll stuff.”
He went on to say, "You got to understand, we love Jagger and Bruno Mars and Bono and anybody else, they're all great. But if you put those guys, or Beyoncé, put Beyoncé in my outfit with seven to eight-inch platform heels, dragon boots that each weigh as much as a bowling ball, the entire outfit, studs, leather and armor is about 40 pounds. The guitar and the studs is 12 pounds by itself. Then, you got to spit fire, fly through the air and do that for two hours. They would pass out within a half hour."
Simmons says all that is part of the reason Kiss is doing their "End of the Road" tour, explaining, "We're approaching 50 years of doing this, which is unbelievable because we never thought we'd last more than a few years. The last thing that you want to do is be a guy that stays in the ring too long and gets his ass beat. Get out of the ring when you're a champion."
Do you think you spend two hours in Gene Simmons’ gear?
