Gene Simmons comments on the inside cover of Alive 2 gatefold vinyl
Posted on 01/18/2013I work for a TV channel in the UK and was lucky enough to meet Gene and Paul in 2012. I asked Gene to sign my 'Alive 2' gatefold vinyl and he asked where I'd like it signed, I opted for the inside cover. As Gene opened my gatefold, one of his entourage mentioned that he'd loved this particular live shot of the band since he was a teenager. With no hint of irony, Gene looked down at the gatefold and uttered these words, "This" -- he paused, as he ran his hand over the cover -- "This is not for ordinary people". That's Gene all over, I loved that moment.
