First of all, if I was talking about Richard Simmons (or his brother), then I WOULD have stipulated “homosexual fitness guru” before the name. I just had no idea that Gene Simmons required the designation of “Rock Legend” in front of his name. It’s simply understood!
And since we’re taking this off topic from the tail number of Gene Simmons’s airplane to our personal musical tastes, let me just say this about that:
I love hard rock from the 60’s, 70’s and some of the 80’s - Bands like Led~Zeppelin, Kiss, Yes (yes, there’s a band called “YES”), Rush (there’s also one called “Rush”), The Who (Yes, THE WHO), Pink Floyd. The fact that I typically limit my listening to bands of this era/genre/style or whatever does not preclude me from knowing that there are other musicians out there like Patsy Cline, Willie Nelson, Kenny Rogers, Lionel Ritchie, Kenny G., Johnny Cash, Johnny Paycheck, Lorretta Lynn, Dolly Parton, Benny Goodman, Frank Sinatra, Gene Krupa, Tommy Dorsey, Snoop Dogg, M.C. Hammer, Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Dizzy Gillespie, Louis Armstrong, Miles Davis, Wolfgang Amadeaus Mozart, Antonio Vivaldi (who I think is the Eddie Van Halen of his time), Ludwig van Beethoven, Bach, Handel, Wagner, Luciano Pavarotti (what a v<ing voice…). I own CDs from ALL of the above-listed names, and more! …okay, maybe not anything from Johnny Paycheck or Snoop Dogg, but I still know they’re out there!
Yes, I did in fact use google in making this list, but ONLY to get proper spelling of the names where needed…
If I know all of these names, then, well… all I can say is God help you!
There’s a whole wide world of great music that you’re missing out on. Yes and Pink Floyd have some really beautiful mellow songs, as do most of the other bands I listen to. In fact, “Beth”, one of Kiss’s biggest hits, is sung by the drummer and has no drums, bass or guitar - only an orchestral string section providing the music. The next track after that song on the studio album (Makin’ Love") kicks ass though - you probably wouldn’t like it
