Happy Birthday, Gene Simmons!

Today is Gene Simmons’ birthday.  Whether you’re a card carrying member of the KISS Army or not, it goes without saying that Gene is one of the most fascinating figures in rock history, and he also has an incredible back story to boot. 

In honor of the Demon’s birthday, kick back with some “Cold Gin,” and check out this incredible interview with Dan Rather on his AXS TV show “The Big Interview.”  You just might look at Gene in a new light.
