Gene Simmons is making some New Year’s resolutions, including making more money .The legendary rocker told the Toronto Sun, "I'd like to be a better, kinder, better-looking and richer guy.
He added, “Not all of that's gonna happen, but I can certainly become a better person -- be kinder, give more to philanthropy, reach out even to people who you disagree with completely. We all live on this planet, and you're not gonna be able to change everybody's mind. And that's OK. Agree to disagree. 'Hey, I don't agree with you. Let's go have some coffee.'"
Gene said he could see him and Paul Stanley selling the KISS catalog if the price is right.
He was asked about that in an interview with A Journal of Musical Things. He said, "How much have you got? Bob Dylan sold his stuff for $300-400 million. The problem -- and I love the guy and worship the ground he walks on -- but [his music] isn't going to mean a lot to a 20-year-old. They don't care about 'The Times They Are A-Changin'', 'Maggie's Farm' -- they just don't. Very few pieces of music stand the test of time. What KISS has that no other musical entity has is trademarks. Our faces are bigger than the music, bigger than anything."
