My brother sent me a link to Terry Gross’ interview with Gene Simmons, which he apparently wouldn’t consent to release to the archives. It’s a few years old, but it’s worth attempting a listen.
If you can stomach it, you’ll see what the face of Voodoo’s headliner is all about. Basically, he’s a misogynistic, pseudointellectual poseur who’s clearly overcompensating for something. Not sure how much of it’s an act, but I know that I wouldn’t want to spend 30 seconds with him.
