KISS bassist Gene Simmons has posted a photo of his childhood band “The Long Island Sounds” on Twitter.
In the picture, we can see him with The Beatles influenced haircut and Paul McCartney style bass guitar. He wrote:
“The Long Island Sounds. I was 15 years old here💥 It was 1966.”
See the photo below.

A fan named Mike Bush corrected Gene’s mistake with this response:
“Actually, you would’ve been 16 or 17, as you were born in 1949.”
Another fan named Paul said:
“And Gene I know this tweet may hurt but I bet your Mom was truly proud of you !! Yes it hurts when indeed our parents go but what great children they leave in their place.”
Gene Simmons also shared another photo from his puppyhood years. You can see it below.
