KISS co-founder and bassist, Gene Simmons, was the latest interview guest of New York Post’s Mark K. Jacob this week and revealed the details of his decision to moving to Nevada and leaving California after over 35 years.

As you might already remember from our recently published articles that Gene Simmons put his two-acre mansion in Beverly Hills on the market for $25 Million after whipping it for $22 Million in October. According to his latest interview, this decision was just about leaving California for good.

In the interview, he was also asked about the home that his lovely wife Shannon Tweed Simmons has bought in Malibu last week. While some rumors stated that the couple bought the home together, Gene declined the claims by saying it was the personal investment of Shannon herself and they are not going to live in Malibu anytime soon.

Here is what he said about leaving California:

“We are moving out of LA for a number of reasons: one of which are the tour buses. After a certain point, we have had enough of that, even though we appreciate the attention. I’m done. There are earthquakes, fires, and pandemics every year. Even though there is nice sunshine, I’m done.”

He continued:

The quality of life is better there, so we can go hiking without bumping into people. We have been exploring our primary residence options outside of California for a couple of years.

We considered various properties in various states but ultimately decided that Nevada is a better choice for us. We are at a place in our lives where a big city lifestyle is just not our thing anymore.”
