Gene Simmons Spat And Had Crabs

That's according to his Kiss band member (and onetime roommate) Ace Frehley in Frehley's new book, No Regrets.

Writes Ace:

"Fastidious if not downright anal in his professional life, Gene was an utter mess in his personal life.

"As I quickly discovered, Gene was an epic slob."

Ace remembers multiple instances of Gene -- who he admits might have been affected by all that flame swallowing -- spitting all over the place.

One time, he says, "Gene cleared his throat, dragged up a thick wad of phlegm, and spat it onto the carpet.

"What wasn't understandable was his insistence on spitting all over the floor.

"I was afraid to walk to the bathroom in the middle of the night for fear of stepping in a pile of mucus."

And speaking of bodily fluids, there was also some wacky sexual behavior.

Says Ace:

"Gene would fuck almost anything (and I think he's admitted as much).

"We all opened our beds to companionship on a regular basis, but somehow Gene was the one who would end up with bugs in his bush.

"Every time I scratched my balls I'd wonder whether the little bloodsuckers had crept into my bed as well."

Ewww!! I'm suddenly spitting phlegm all over the floor.

Myslím že "Family Jevels" je jen divadlo a peníze,což si Gene udělal i z KISS. Pro zbytek kapely šlo především o muziku,hlavně proto odešel Peter a Ace....

Nikdo není dokonalý.A je dobře že vychází na světlo to, za co se Gene asi stydí.Narozdíl od Aceho,který si nikdy na nic nehrál - proto ho mám nejraději.ACE MY PEOPLE

Simmons has been dogging Ace (and Peter Criss) for years. Those two guys helped KISS return to their glory (again!) in 1996, and withou them Gene would not be in the position he is in today.Gene uses people, and he STILL talks about Ace's addictions today (as if he still is an addict) without giving Ace any kind of "attah boy" for kicking his drug and alcohol habits.Nice to see the tables are turned to Simmons...As they say, what goes around, comes around. Thanks Ace!

Ace and Gene had lunch together last month. Wonder why? Could it be Gene is finally trying to be at peace with the guitarist whose style was what made them successful, given Ace finally evened the score? I haven't listened to Kiss for years, but look for another reunion. Ace may have been a drug addict, but I doubt he embarrassed himself and the band as Gene did on the Mike Douglas Show.

You know James I would of believed what you wrote,but I doubt  Gene could care less .  " Even the score ?"I think the curtain call ended a some time ago for Ace/Peter Re-reunion...Some People play clubs because they cant fill Arenas when they go solo...and they left by choice ...nuff said

Judging by what I've seen on the TV show "Family Jewels", why Shannon Tweed would ever want to redeem a person like Gene is beyond me. He's scum, through and through. I'd totally fuck his daughter though.

So, Gene is not as nice as his reality shows him to be?

Shows him to be nice? Sure it's edited but the reason I think it's funny is showing "warts and all" though obviously diluted. But sure doesn't seem nice to me.

Mona it was 1977. A few years have passed since then.

Ewwwwww. This is so gross!!! But why am I not surprised.

By the way, Simmons has said unkind things about Ace (who was drugged at the time), so I'm glad Ace is leveling the playing field.

Bugs in his bush??? That sounds vaguely poetic.
