Gene Simmons: “What are Run-D.M.C., Grandmaster Flash & Donna Summer doing in Hall of Fame?”

    Gene Simmons World Class Bigot

    If you had any question about the racial divide in music before, Gene Simmons basically just told you all to KISS his azz! Simmons has singled out a pair of Hip Hop music’s pioneers, and one legendary Disco Diva — who he believes have no place in The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame!!!

    “You’ve got Grandmaster Flash in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? Run-D.M.C. in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? You’re killing me!”

    Let’s set aside the fact that Grandmaster Flash is the musical force responsible for inventing the crossfader and scratching records (a practice recording artists still use to this very day), and recognize the fact that it wasn’t until after 60-years of Quincy Jones’ critical contribution into music when the Grammy Legend was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, in 2013. These are just some of the facts which Gene Simmons appears to have caught a serious case of amnesia over…

    “You’re killing me! They don’t play guitar, they sample and they talk.”

    Peep what the Gene ‘Knight In Service Of Satan’ Simmons, whose K.I.S.S. is set to be inducted in April 2014, told Radio.com:

    “I have no beef with the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. You go on with your bad self and get more disco artists. Get the Boston Pops Orchestra to be inducted!

    A long time ago it was diluted. It’s really back room politics, like Boss Tweed. A few people decide what’s in and what’s not. And the masses just scratch their heads. You’ve got Grandmaster Flash in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? Run-D.M.C. in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? You’re killing me! That doesn’t mean those aren’t good artists. But they don’t play guitar. They sample and they talk.

    …if you asked Donna [Summer], ‘What kind of artist are you?’ do you think she would say ‘rock?’ If you asked Madonna, ‘What kind of artist are you?’ do you think she would say, ‘Oh, rock!’ So what they hell are they doing in the Hall of Fame? They can run their organization any way they’d like, but it ain’t rock! It just isn’t! If you don’t play guitar and you don’t write your own songs, you don’t belong there.”

    1. He has his perception of what Rock music is. Who cares if he is racist. Racism is in the blood of some folks. They probably don’t even understand their hatred. Plus, a druggie is no position to pass judgment on anything.

      • Screw him throwing up baphomet signs and pryamids behind him, he to old for that shit. We are rock n roll; chuck berry lil Richard imitation is the best form of flattery. But they stole our moves and all Elvis Presley

    2. First off, Mr. Simmons doesn’t know what he is talking about. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame were created to recognize musicians and songwriters who made outstanding, influential contribution to the music industry, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame are in name only. Mr. Simmons needs to take race out of it. Additionally, it was the voters who thing or thought like him that failed to recognize any artist for their music contribution, although you might not like their music, everyone has heard of KISS, the same with Run DMC, Donna Summer, Aretha Franklin.. etc… He needs to stop being a bigot for a man that use to date a black woman (ahem… cough… cough.. Diana Ross)

      • Gene Simmons is trash. I have no idea how Shannon Tweed has tolerated him all these years. Seeing as how white folks nor Joos invented rock & roll, he has a hell of a lot of nerve acting as though he is the god of r&r.

        Now, when Chuck Berry and Little Richard disagree with inductees or nominees, I will listen.

    3. this man and his group always scared me. I have a horrifying memories of this group from when I was a kid, lol. I wonder who is scarying the kids now?

      • So true, they were the stuff made of nightmares.

        I don’t know if what he is sayin’ is necessarily racist though.

        • Ii tend to agree. There are enough cases of genuine racism everywhere we look, but this is just an old nasty dude popping off out of jealousy.
          He WISHES that his style of music was still en vogue but the 80’s are long gone.

    4. African Americans created rock and roll and this old crusty no-talent lizard is asking why the black people are in the Hall of Fame. Wow. I hated KISS when I was a kid and I hate their old creepy asses now.

    5. All popular music in the US originated from Black Music…Blues, Jazz, Gospel, Soul, Hip-Hop. Any intelligent nusic fan knows this already. Another bitter white male…Join The Crowd! At least we know the real person…Not A Facade!

    6. Does any really believe this guy really worships the devil or for that matter K.I.S.S. they was just trying to be outragous and sell there music to teenagers K.I.S.S. was signed to CASABLANCA RECORDS also home to one of the greatest ROCK/FUNK bands ever “PARLIMENT”

      • knights in satans service gene like all rock stars swear they only use satan as a motive to sell records.

    7. i dont think this is a racial thing…he didnt say jimi hendrix,chuck berry,bo diddley,little richard etc…

      i just think he doesnt believe the music of donna summer,madonna,run dmc,flash dont fit into the “rock” format or any of the sub genres of the blues,r&b,be pop or whatever that helped influence the early creation of what is considered “rock” music…

      hes just guilty of taking the name of the “rock and roll” HOF too literally…apparently he doesnt realize it was meant to celebrate popular music and all who influenced it…

      but lets not paint this guy as a racist for being simple minded artistically

    8. He is a Jhew (with afro hair on top of that!), so of course it is his job to hate on the black man. If we asked what kind of music Kiss made, could we call it the rock that blacks were doing, the very people who created the damned music that his Jhews exploited? Blacks have to research and understand that it is these damned Jhews who are the ones giving us all hell and THEY are the master racists responsible for keeping us down. These white Jhews curiously have a lot of black characteristics…

      • Those joos have our Hebrew heritage and if we ever wake up then its over for them.Why do you think they remain so close to black causes?Civil Rights Movement,BET,NAACP etc.

      • a jewfro it is called

        This isn’t racist, trust a lot worse can and does come out the mouths of the joos about black folk.
        I think he is clueing us in that maybe membership is or sale?

    9. gene simmons and kiss were p funk wannabes they even copied the p funk mothership concept and starchild name.

      but kiss got more promotion from casablanca.

      you could’nt get a record deal at casablanca if you was’nt doing cocaine.

      • Look at how George Clinton is financially insolvent and lost his publishing, yet Gene Simmons has ALL the money and is constantly making a fortune licensing KISS merchandise. They have KISS caskets for crying out loud.

        • Its also been chronicled that the Isley Brothers are financially destitute after losing they’re music catalog.Those fake joos don’t care about the cash because its more beneficial to them to gain full posession of the artist Assets.They’re the ones behind Michael Jacksons fake will to siege control of his Beatles catalog.

          • Ron Isley went to prison for cashing his deceased brother’s social security checks. He had tax issues and still has them last I checked. What people forget is that Michael Bolton owes him $15 million that Bolton will probably never pay, which is obscene.

            Isley was one of the few Black people who was a member of the Marina Yacht Club. I know he lives an opulent lifestyle, but after over 50 years in the recording industry, he should. He is struggling financially, yet Mick Jagger isn’t. Neither is Paul McCartney. Its all BS.

            • Ron Isley gave Michael Bolton several opportunities and he refused to listen so he bought Legal action against himself.The only problem is,judgements are just judgements and aren’t usually enforced. Isley may never see a dime of that money.

              • Oh, I know how judgments work. Before I would’ve filed for BK and lost my catalog, I would’ve walked that judgment into BK court and spoken to the trustee. I would’ve done my best to see that SOMEONE enforced it, especially since Bolton is likely profiting off of his unauthorized use of Isley’s work.

          • BA:

            How did they lose their music catalog? Was it seized by the IRS (if that is even possible)? I was unaware of that. Words cannot describe how much I love Mr. Biggs and the Isleys.

            • Nvm. I found the answer. Their catalog was acquired during his bankruptcy. See, that’s their f!cking trick. Every damn time.

          • everything the beatles made was re released and remasterd and put out in stores whewn mj died.

            mj never announced the beatles guitar hero which was released as soon as mj passed.

            a lot of black artists are ripped off most never learned the business really which was why the industry is still making millions.

        • lets not forget George ripped off his entire band members several of his ex players says George owes them millions.

          George talked Bernie worrell into selling his publishing rights for drugs which was why Bernie’s right now homeless and doing whatever gigs he can get.

          George also turned Bernie’s son onto crack.

    10. When Madonna’s name was added to the fold to me,that eradicated any Racism as far as I’m concerned.

      • gene should diss her for all she did was sell sex.

        Madonna’s music is styraight techno and sex and progay.

        but its okay gene shalt not use Ishtar’s name in name or is it esther or eos or easter or whatever the hell goddess she thinks she is.

        • Simmons is a hypocrite for bitching about Vadge because he was the guy talking about f@cking 14 year old groupies and their mothers’.

    11. So Chaim Witz=”Gene Simmons” and his butt-slutt pal Paul Eisen=”Paul Stanley” are dishing up the shit again…
      Listen in the 70’s when wireless UHF systems came into being, KISS and Witz Simmons like Eisen/Stanley had STUDIO PROS backstage playing their Music parts while they were up onstage prancing around in leather and spandex 3 sizes too tight spitting fire and cow’s blood onstage or Eisen/Stanley being a pouty lil’ bitch effeminate up there.
      We saw this in the 70’s at Concerts of a number of Big Label “Rock Stars” using wireless systems with STUDIO PROS backstage playing while the bads were onstage doing acrobatic shit and IF You knew Guitar/Bass and watched their hands fake mime playing then You knew they were doing fake shit mimes long before Milli Vanilli fake lip sync shit.
      Also on Big Label Cock Rock like the 80’s Hair Bands and later Thrash trash, STUDIO PROS played the music and taught the pretty band HOW to play the shit live…
      Like major 60’s Hits in Cali like the Beach Boys, Monkees, Archies, Mamas and Papas, etc., the Music was done by the Wrecking Crew STUDIO PROS…
      Want some Proof?

      This is a documentary about the Wrecking Crew by guitarist legend Tommy Tedesco’s son with interviews finally telling the Truth about the Game in the 60’s… he confirmed what I said about these sleazoid units a long time… look up Laurel Canyon… and this site…

      Chaim Witz/”Gene Simmons” is racist who hates Goyim as cattle but he just loves it ZOGgie Style with his effeminate A$$FUCK Twin Eisen/Stanley but hey just because their math is Faggin’ometry for Cash $$$…

      They ripped off the Glam Rock and Parliament Funkadelic antics for sure… but in the End..

      KISS gave Head to get Ahead in the Industry and are as phony as a $3 dollar bill.

    12. He should worry less bout black folks in music FINALLY gettin the recognition they oh so deserve, & more about whether that cancer will appear on his nasty ass tongue

    13. For someone who’s so damn prejudice towards the black race, he sure looks ethnic as hell, from his skin tone to that hair, wonder what he’s really mixed up with?!!

      • he’s mixed with ugly, slime, scum, hate, with a little bit of fag and hag and witch.

        aleister Crowley worshipping ass check out old photos of Crowley wearing the same outfir damn near a 100 years ago.

    14. gene always sticking his tounge out giving props to the serpent and oral sex we know what gene likes to lick on.
