The Very Best Of Kiss

In related Kiss news, bassist Gene Simmons updated his website ( with the following blog:

Had a ball doing my Speaking Engagement Nashville early this morning. About 1,200 Entrepreneurs from many sections of he business world were on hand. I have a very free flowing style — do not use notes and usually have no clue where I’m going. Some of what I do in my Speaking Engagements has to do with biographical material (you want to know where someone came from, in order to gage where they are now)…some of it has to do with my training (taught sixth grade for a very short time in Spanish Harlem, worked as Executive Ass’t to the Director of the Puerto Rican InterAgency Council when I was 23 years old…worked for the editor of Vogue/Kate Lloyd during that time…and so on)…and most of it has to do with being insatiable and voracious when it comes to INFORMATION — pop culture, sociology, history, religion, politics…and so on.

The rest has to do with a strict, no nonsense work ethic. I never worried about a Job. But, I always made sure I worked. I have never vacationed. And have no plans to. Lots of time to vacation when you’re underground. I have never married, though I have been in a relationship for 25 years. I never do one thing. I “spread the risk” — like a mutual fund. Never keep the eggs in one basket. I hardly ever gamble.

And the rest has to do with the planets lining up and being in the right place at the right time.

And after the above, I hopped on a plane and got my butt down to ST. PETERSBURG for the INDYCAR RACE. Lest you forgot, our SIMMONS ABRAMSON MARKETING venture does the worldwide branding/marketing for the IndyCar Series, including the Indy 500.
