GENE SIMMONS WRITING NEW BOOK ‘LADIES OF THE NIGHT’:
November 12, 2007
It’s been a busy time.
I’m up to my neck writing my next book: LADIES OF THE NIGHT — A HISTORICAL AND PERSONAL OVERVIEW OF THE OLDEST PROFESSION on our SIMMONS BOOKS/PHOENIX BOOKS imprint. It should be finished by Spring.
Meantime, our SIMMONS ABRAMSON MARKETING venture will shortly be announcing some very exciting new clients and new projects both Rich and I are jazzed about.
Of course, to get a head start on the next INDYCAR SERIES Races, log onto INDYCAR.COM. We plan on being at every race. Come up and say hello.
NOV 8TH — A personal thank you to LA’s Mayor Villaregosa, and Councilman Weiss who did me a solid by closing down an entire block on Melrose, so that the DUSSAULT STORE Opening was a splash in grand style. There was a red carpet and lots of beautiful people. Jason Dussault has Dussault Custom Ink as a brand, and we both have a joint venture in my Gene Simmons MONEYBAG StreetWear imprint…featuring my trademarked MoneyBag logo. CRISS ANGEL was kind enough to be bring his MINDFREAK A&E TV crew as well doing some amazing “magic”. We also had our GENE SIMMONS FAMILY JEWELS TV crew there as well. We stayed till 2 am. Lots of fun.
NOV 9TH — we got up at 5 am (three hours of sleep), hopped the 7:40 flight to Vegas and headed off to the HARD ROCK HOTEL, where I went right into a full day of rehearsals for the World Premier of the GENE SIMMONS ROYAL CROWN REVUE — 13 piece big band. Horns. Rhythm section. 3 Girl Background Singers and showgirls. It all took place at Beecher’s Madhouse at the JOINT. We filmed the entire event for our tv show and on a personal note, this experience is coming full circle for me. Before the Beatles, I was hooked on American Rhythm and Blues — the early guys, James Brown, Joe Tex, Jackie WIlson (quickly, get copies of Jackie’s WORK OUT…you’ll flip…also check out Roy Head’s TREAT HER RIGHT). This was a chance for me to let loose, get in front of a rockin’ band, and pimp out. And pimp, I did.
NOV 10th — got up early, caught a flight to Toronto, where I am now with Rich Abramson for our SIMMONS ABRAMSON MKTG entity — new, cool stuff.
Then I fly to NY for meetings with Hedge and Private Equity guys re another new venture.
Then this coming weekend, fly back to Vegas to do some more GS FAMILY JEWELS filming at Planet Hollywood.
Then on Sunday, NOV 11th, fly to LA to present at the AMERICAN MUSIC AWARDS the Best Female Pop/Rock Song.
I love the girls.
