Gene Simmons Chats With Mario Cuomo
KISS bassist/vocalist Gene Simmons has posted the following message on his web site:
“Two days ago I appeared on ‘Fox & Friends’ in the early morning talking about our Instant Live CDs that available at the end of each night’s concert. In the Green Room, I chatted with former New York Governor Mario Cuomo. He has a new book out, which he was there promoting. We both shook hands and started lightly talking politics — economic politics. In short, Gov. Cuomo thought the present is a half-empty glass of water. And, I believe it’s half full.”
“The following day, Spike television execs came up to my hotel room to discuss a variety of projects we plan on doing with each other. More news as it develops. Then, met with the new President of Marvel Comics for, (you guessed it) a proposed new KISS comics series…as well as a brand new generation of toys and games.
“At the Jones Beach/New York concert, I ran into promoter/manager David Fishof, who has a new business venture we may do together — it encompasses live events with a television window.
“Was offered a role in an independent movie that shoots at the end of August, but I am not available. So, I passed.
“Director Damian Lichtenstein (‘3,000 Miles To Graceland’) called to talk about his new movie, which shoots at the end of August as well. May not be available. We will see. In the meantime, I am scheduled to shoot the debut episode of the new season of NBC’s ‘Third Watch’ on August 19th and 20th. I will be appearing in the recurring role of the Crime Lord.
“I guess I don’t look Swiss…”
