KISS legend Gene Simmons had a recent interview with The Telegraph, and revealed lots of unknown truths about himself.

About his private jet…

“I’m on the move more than I’m actually at home so it makes sense. But when we fly with a commercial airline I always choose Virgin, not because I know Sir Richard personally but because I’m partial to a mid-flight massage. I last had one while speeding along somewhere over the Atlantic.”

About his to-do list…

“Top of my to-do list in England is the Tower of London. As a kid I was transfixed by its history and read up on all the lovers, sometimes friends and certainly criminals that the Royal family sent there. The fact that it sits right in the city centre is odd to me: American jails are always built in the middle of nowhere, they’re very unromantic in comparison.”

About him knowing Hungarian…

“They’re traditional Balkan dishes that I ate growing up. My family are originally from Hungary, so I speak Hungarian. I’m also fluent in German, Hebrew and Japanese, which is rare to find in America.

Shamefully, I’ve found Americans to be less interested in the world than Europeans are. We have a very close-minded sense of what the rest of the world has to offer.”

About serving a plate of live bugs…

“It was in Japan. Call me a philistine but if you’ve got eight legs, tentacles and little beady eyes, I can’t eat you. I can’t stomach the “eeeek” sound of seafood being cooked alive, either.”
