KISS co-founder and also the long-time bassist of the band, Gene Simmons, had an exclusive interview with the official YouTube account of Gibson TV and talked about his approach to Gibson as well as his recently released signature bass.
As you may already know, Gene Simmons and Gibson announced a new collaboration last week and stated that they’ve made a long-time agreement for delivering new bass and guitar products in the near future. In the same announcement, Gene and Gibson shared that they will be streaming on multiple platforms like YouTube and TikTok.
Just a week after the announcement, Gene Simmons made an exclusive interview with Gibson and shared his feelings while they are getting prepared many right and left-handed electric guitars really soon. According to Gene, he’s a man of trust and Gibson gave him the opportunity to make a trustful collaboration.
Here is what Gene Simmons said:
“I’ve been around a long time. And what I want you to get out of this is pride. When you see that Gibson logo, and hopefully with me involved as well, and you plug in that first time, you’re taken aback by how good it sounds and people come up and say, ‘Man, you’re cool.'”
“However they figure out all the work that you put into getting your sound, pride should come out of that. That’s what I hope the fans get out of this. And let’s call it for what it is. The basses are so beautiful, the bodies are so classic that there’s gonna be lots of folks out there who are gonna wanna buy ’em and put ’em on their wall as a piece of art…
And we’re gonna pay attention to those details so that, as you get close to it, you’re gonna get something special.”
