The legendary musician of KISS, Gene Simmons was the recent interview guest of The Three Sides of the Coin podcast and revealed his and his bandmates’ principles about drugs & alcohol.

Gene said that every bandmember has to be a professional on stage. He also claimed that any band member even smokes cigarettes.

Here is his statement:

“I don’t even say this for effect. Literally, nobody in the band even smokes cigarettes. Nobody drinks. Not because there’s some kind of rule. If you wanna drink off to the side, sure, help yourself — as long as you’re professional on stage. But nobody goes to the bars — there’s no pub stuff. It’s not part of the culture. And literally, nobody in the band uses drugs.

And maybe that has a lot to do with showing up on time and getting up on that stage and making the words true. ‘You wanted the best’ — not the second-best or kind of good — ‘you wanted the best. You’ve got the best. The hottest motherfucking band on the planet.’ And the words have to mean that, or get off the stage and give — I don’t know — Greta Van Fleet a chance.”
