KISS’ legendary musician Gene Simmons posted a new tweet on his official social media account and shared his words written on iHeart Radio’s recent article.

Here is what Gene said about UK and USA musicians:

“America created rock ‘n’ roll, blues, jazz and rap and all of the various types of popular music, but what you [the U.K.] have been able to do is to make it royal and all from a small area with not that many people.

California has more people than your island and has the fifth biggest economy on the Earth and yet other than The Beach Boys, California doesn’t have much. You have The Beatles, The [Rolling] Stones, U2 and Queen, and the list goes on and on.”

Gene posted that article on Twitter and revealed that he stands by my words.

Here is what he said:

“I stand by my words. The Beatles, the Stones, Queen and many others, took rock ‘n’ roll to heights American artists never did, even though America invented rock, blues, rap and so on. The UK simply does it better. End of story.”
