Getting rich is one of Gene Simmons’ New Year’s resolutions
When Gene Simmons was recently asked if he has any New Years resolutions, the KISS bassist and co-singer noted a number of areas he would like to grow up in.
This includes accumulating more wealth, although Simmons said last year that he was already making money at the Olympic level. But for 2022, the rock star known as KISS’s âDemonâ also wants to be a better person overall, and he spoke about extending compassion and charity to everyone in an interview with the Toronto Sun on last month.

âI wish I was a nicer, more handsome, and richer guy,â Simmons replied. “All of this won’t happen, but I can definitely become a better person. I can be kinder, give more to philanthropy, and reach out – even to people I strongly disagree with.”
The rocker added, “We all live on this planet and you won’t be able to change everyone’s mind and that’s okay. Accept to disagree.”
Elaborating on his immediate plans for New Years Eve, Simmons spoke of spending time with his family before highlighting the policy surrounding safety precautions amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
âI will be with my family, my wife and our two children, Nick and Sophie,â said the musician and businessman. âWe are the luckiest people in the world – people of Western civilization. Imagine trying to disagree with the Chinese government over the CDC guidelines. threaten to dangerously infect the rest of us. “
In an interview last year, Simmons said categorically, “I’m not worried – and it’s not nice to say this – I’m not worried if an idiot contracts COVID and dies. I’m afraid he won’t. ‘take other people with him, who don’t have I have no choice. “
Earlier in December, Foo Fighters took Simmons to the stage when they performed in Las Vegas, and the KISS icon humorously handed Dave Grohl a tip. There, the Foos “royally rocked the house,” Simmons later remarked. “I can’t say enough about their commitment and authenticity to the fans,” he added.
KISS wrapped up an American stop on their End of the Road tour last year, but gigs were affected when Simmons and bandmate Paul Stanley both tested positive for COVID. A KISS Las Vegas residency to continue into the New Year has been on hold for the time being.
