Legendary bass player of KISS, Gene Simmons has reacted to a controversial photo of himself on Twitter.

A fan page of KISS named “KISS Anthem Project” has leaked a rare photo of Gene Simmons which he was not wearing sunglasses and totally bald. The page wrote:

“Turn off that light! I’m not wearing my sunglasses and the glare of Gene’s head hurts my eyes!”

A fan named Adam Freeman wrote:

“INSIDE SCOOP: This was shot the night we did a bald gag for one of our “…good to be me” tags. I took this on my phone in their driveway and anonymously submitted to the tabloids as a joke – who picked it up.”

Gene mockingly responded:

“Ok, for some of you Internet trolls, who thrive to making up garbage….here is the real backstory.”
