Gene Simmons Pays Respect To E Street Band’s Steven Van Zandt


KISS bassist Gene Simmons recently shared a post to praise a show of E Street Band guitarist Steven Van Zandt on his official Twitter account. Following Simmons’ kind comments on social media, the guitar player expressed his thoughts about the KISS icon.

Although Van Zandt reached great fame and popularity with his career as a professional musician, the guitarist had several successful projects in other areas. His performance as an actor, author, radio host, and entrepreneur showed that Van Zandt is a multi-talented person. Also, his radio show Little Steven’s Underground Garage, which started in April 2002, became one of the most popular programs in the US.

Van Zandt’s one-of-a-kind hosting and song choices received positive reviews from fans and colleagues despite radio’s declining popularity, and one of them was Simmons. The bass player talked about the weekly syndicated radio show, saying he was a big fan, and explained why he loved it so much. The main reason behind this admiration was listening to songs from genres such as R&B, soul, rock, and many more.

In one of his latest tweets, the KISS bassist highlighted that it was hard to find a station where you can hear both Jackie Wilson’s ‘Baby Workout’ and ‘Hello Susie.’ As another person active in social media, Van Zandt read and responded to his words about the program by emphasizing that he loves a man like Simmons, who liked loudness. Then, Simmons described the E Street Band guitarist as a powerful and attractive man.

Gene Simmons’ tweet read:

Big fan of Little Steven’s Underground Garage (Sirius Ch 21). Where else can you hear Jackie Wilson’s ‘Baby Workout,’ followed by The Move’s ‘Hello Susie.'”

Van Zandt responded:

Gotta love a man that loves it loud!

Simmons added:

You are a powerful and attractive man, Stevie.
