GENE SIMMONS’ ROCK SCHOOL TO AIR ON VH1:

Gene Simmons Goes Back to School to Teach Kids How to Rock in the New VH1 Series ‘Gene Simmons’ Rock School’ Premiering Friday, August 19 at 11PM

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — Gene Simmons invades England to teach a bunch of prim and proper boarding school students how to rock in the new VH1 series, “Gene Simmons’ Rock School,” premiering Friday, August 19 at 11PM.* The infamous “Demon” of KISS faces a monumental task: turning a group of classical music mini-scholars into a killer rock band.

“Gene Simmons’ Rock School” has Master Simmons setting up court at one of the UK’s top independent boarding schools, Christ’s Hospital in West Sussex, south of London. The children who attend the 450-year-old school wear Tudor uniforms, march into the lunch hall accompanied by full brass band and know nothing about rock music. So, in just six weeks Gene must transform a class of classically trained 13-year-old musicians into little rock gods.

Some kids will make the cut, and some will have their hearts broken as Gene picks a band worthy of opening for metal legends Motorhead in front of 5,000 screaming fans.
