Gene Simmons - Rock and Roll Over Tour [December 21st, 1976]
An amazing shot of everybody’s favorite Demon.
I was at Gene’s house for a shoot on Thursday. He showed me a few sketches he had framed on the wall. “Do you know who did these?”
I didn’t know.
"Billy fucking Wilder. You know who that is, right?"
I knew I should have just said yes, but it’s pretty obvious that Gene Simmons has a finely-tuned bullshit radar. At that particular moment, I didn’t remember that Wilder directed Some Like it Hot, so I told him that the name sounded familiar but I couldn’t place it.
"What are you? From fucking Minnesota? Iowa? Mississippi?"
"Jesus fucking christ, I tell you, if people don’t grow up in LA that don’t know shit. Fucking clueless, all of you. You work in this industry. You should know this shit. Jesus fucking christ. Fucking clueless"
He walked away, and I didn’t see him after that. I fucked up.
Otherwise, nice guy!
