Gene Simmons Confirms He’s Worked In Vogue Magazine As He Gives The Details Of His Job
KISS bassist and co-founder Gene Simmons responded to a fan’s question on Twitter which was asking details about one of his previous employment as an assistant to the editor of Vogue Magazine.
As you might recall, in the early 1970s, Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons formed their band, Wicked Lester, and recorded one album, yet never released it. Later, they decided to form the ultimate rock band. In 1973, after Ace Frehley joined the group, they formed KISS which eventually became one of the greatest rock bands of all time.
However, prior to his career as a worldwide famous rockstar, Gene Simmons worked in different fields of jobs. During a previous conversation with one of his fans on Twitter, Gene revealed that he actually worked as a sixth-grade instructor on the Upper West Side for several months and credited his excellent knowledge of the English language to his previous experience as a teacher.
Recently on Twitter, another fan of Simmons asked whether Gene worked as a typist for Vogue magazine earlier in his career and wanted to know the details of the rockstar’s unusual occupation. In his response to the fan’s question, Simmons confirmed that he worked for Vogue magazine but he actually was the assistant to the editor of Vogue magazine, Kate Lloyd, back in 1973.
Here is what Simmons’ fan asked him on Twitter:
“Weren’t you also a typist for a magazine? Vogue is coming to mind. I swear I read that in your first book.”
To which Gene Simmons responded:
“Yes, you got it almost right. In 1973, I was the assistant to the editor of Vogue magazine, Kate Lloyd”
