He Thanks The Essential Workers
In a new interview with Good Day L.A., Gene Simmons shares his thoughts about the coronavirus pandemic, its effect on the music industry, and he also talks about KISS farewell tour which was affected by the outbreak. He first showed off his gloves and face mask and said, “Don’t just talk about it, do it. I wash my hands so often, I’ve never been so clean in my life. I’m usually a slob.”
He then proceeds to discuss about reading “horrific things” and describing this current global crisis as a “crazy time.” He adds, “I’m so grateful to everybody out there who risks their lives for you guys and me.” He thanks everyone from the first responders, doctors, and nurses, to the firemen, and truckers.
When asked about the impact of COVID-19 on the music industry, the KISS rockstar answered: “We can talk about the big numbers and that means billions of dollars that are lost. The rich and the famous and the good-looking folks who wear silly outfits like this and have silly hair like this, just billions of dollars just flushed down the drain. So what? You’re talking about single mothers and families who live from check to check. The people who actually put on these concerts – the security people, the road crews, all that stuff – this is important, this is survival. The folks in and around the infrastructure are the people who are suffering the most.”
KISS has been doing their part to help. Simmons even took a jab at those complaining about the lockdown because of boredom. Check out the interview below.
