Gene Simmons Gives Music Biz It’s Last Lick

Gene Simmons’ Kiss of Fate

Gene SimmonsKevin Mazur/

KISS mainman Gene Simmons has been blaming the death of the record industry on bands like RadioheadNine Inch Nails and others who have experimented with alternative methods of releasing music.

Oh, and the fans, too.

“The record industry is dead. It’s six feet underground and unfortunately the fans have done this. They’ve decided to download and file share,” said Simmons, according to an AOL Australia report.

“There is no record industry around so we’re going to wait until everybody settles down and becomes civilised. As soon as the record industry pops its head up we’ll record new material.”

Are you happy now, ungrateful fans of music?

Anyway, the death of the music industry has at least gotta be good for the Kiss Kasket, the $4,700 coffin the band used to sell on its website. It could be used as a beer cooler until the lucky fan died and was placed inside.
