The legendary bass player of rock veteran band KISS, Gene Simmons has shared a photo of a page from Stephen King’s book, ‘Doctor Sleep’, on his verified Twitter account.
Gene has noticed a special section about himself written by Stephen King from the book called Doctor Sleep, which was released in 2013.
Here’s the section:
“He saw something worse: she wasn’t a woman, after all. Probably not jailbait (please God, not jailbait), but surely no more than twenty and maybe still in her late teens. On one wall, chillingly childish, was a poster of KISS with Gene Simmons spewing fire. On another was a cute kitten with startled eyes, dangling from a tree branch. HANG IN THERE, BABY, this poster advised.
He needed to get out of here. Their clothes were tangled together at the foot of the mattress. He separated his t-shirt from her panties, yanked it over his head, then stepped into his jeans. He froze with the zipper halfway up, realizing that his left front pocket was much flatter than it had been when he left the check-cashing joint the previous afternoon.
No. It can’t be. His head, which had begun to feel the teeniest bit better, started to throb again as his heartbeat picked up speed, and when he shoved his hand into the pocket, it brought up nothing but a ten-dollar bill and two toothpicks, one of which poked under his index fingernail and into the sensitive meat beneath.
He hardly noticed. We didn’t drink up five hundred dollars. No way we did. We’d be dead if we drank up that much. His wallet was still at home in his hip pocket. He pulled it out, hoping against hope, but no joy. He must have transferred the ten.”
And as you can see below, he shared this section with a little message you can read here:
“From Stephen King’s DOCTOR SLEEP…And kind of Stephen to do the same in his FIRESTARTER. A powerful and attractive man.”
