Want to hear a knock down, drag out, rock n roll debate?? If you’re a Gene Simmons fan (or not) you probably do!
Gene got into it with industry gadfly Bob Lefsetz who objected to Simmons’ purely promotional appearance at an industry conference in Canada. Gene was there to promote his new label, and Lefsetz was there to be critical.
Simmons started Simmons Records under the Universal Music Canada banner earlier this year, and Lefsetz, not shy about voicing his strong opinions on all things in the music industry, went after each other after separate keynote speaches.
Our favorite quote? Asked by Lefsetz to stop being self-promotional, Gene responded, “I won’t stop telling you how great I am. Find someone else for that.”
