GENE SIMMONS: Success Offers You Freedom
In a brand new interview with Examiner.com, KISS bassist/vocalist Gene Simmons was asked if there was a word he could use to define what success meant to him. "Freedom," he replied. "When you don't have money, you don't have freedom. You don't have freedom of what to do with your day; you've gotta go to work at whatever time to go to work. You've gotta get up at 7 a.m. to be at work by 9 a.m.; there's no freedom there. If you're working for somebody, you don't have freedom to determine what to do, and you will be told where to go, what time to be, and what to do. There's not much freedom to do anything else. Being successful, in other words, being rich, enables you to determine for yourself what you want to do, if you want to do it, and when you want to do it. It offers you the freedom to support your family, give to charity, buy your mother the hip operation she needs, to do everything. Without money, you can't do any of it." He continued: "[People say] 'But love is the most important thing in the' — well, yeah, that's true, but not really, not in real life. Unless and if you have the money — and the hard work that goes before that — first you need hard work, then you get the money. Without the money, you can't even feed your kids, no matter how much you love them. First money, then the implementation of money, love, then everything else is fine. And whoever said 'money is the root of all evil' probably still lives in their mother's basement. The truth is, lack of money is the root of all evil. If you have all the money in the world, why would you want to hold up a 7-Eleven? The people that hold up 7-Elevens don't have money." Simmons, who is the owner of the LA Kiss arena football team, Simmons Records, the Cool Springs financial services firm, and Rock & Brews restaurant chain, among other ventures, has just released a new book out based on his approach to business, titled "Me, Inc.", in which he shares the secrets of KISS' 40 years of success.
PHILIP ANSELMO Stars In 'Metal Grasshopper' Weekly Series: Second Episode Posted Online
Former PANTERA and current DOWN frontman Philip Anselmo stars in "Metal Grasshopper", a web series produced and directed by Chris Lee, the SUPAGROUP guitarist-and-singer-turned-web–series-producer, who is married to Sean Yseult, the former WHITE ZOMBIE bassist. The series, which was shot mostly at Anselmo's wooded compound north of Lake Pontchartrain in southeastern Louisiana, follows the misadventures of a budding hard rock star, played by comedian, radio host, author and musician Dave Hill, as he seeks guidance from a metal mentor, played by Philip. "Metal Grasshopper" pairs the unlikely duo of metal master Anselmo with comedian, dandy, and NPR darling Dave Hill. Dave begs Phil to mold him into "the baddest metal motherfucker of all time." Phil begrudgingly relents and the abuse and absurdity reach epic levels. If you like stuff with corpse paint, burning pentagrams, medieval weaponry, irritable goats rented by the hour, couples counseling, delicious smoothie recipes, and real live chickens, you will love "Metal Grasshopper", because it has all that stuff and then a bunch of other awesome stuff on top of that too. Conceived by Hill, Anselmo and writer/director Chris Lee during a torchlit ceremony in the goddamn woods while it was seriously late at night, "Metal Grasshopper" begins with Hill showing up unannounced at Anselmo's secret compound somewhere in the sticks outside of New Orleans to learn directly from the master. Anselmo isn't exactly crazy about the idea at first, but after Hill eventually proves he's not messing around, Anselmo reluctantly agrees to take Hill under his heavily tattooed wing, share his unholy wisdom, and let Dave crash in one of the upstairs guest rooms. Over the course of the series' five episodes, Anselmo educates Hill on everything from headbanging to crowd work to even the most extreme of all breakfast cereals. Will Hill survive and come out the other end even more metal than before? Or will Anselmo scare Hill straight back to his parents' basement in Cleveland? Check out the second episode — in which Anselmo schools Hill on headbanging, heavy metal vocals, and the most extreme of all breakfast cereals — below. Oh, and Hill takes a phone message for Anselmo from King Diamond, which is awesome.
