Gene Simmons Says Mick Jagger And Bono Aren’t Physically Able To Do What He Does On Stage
Bass guitarist and co-founder of KISS, Gene Simmons, revealed how hard it is to play on KISS show during a recent conversation The Sun.
Even though Rolling Stones’ Mick Jagger and U2’s Bono is considered two of the best frontmen in the world, Gene claimed that they couldn’t do anything they do with KISS on the stage.
According to Gene, they are carrying more than soldiers in their backpacks and pointed out the physical energy that needs to be have during the live shows of KISS.
Gene mentioned that they got to fly through the air, split blood, and during this time, they need to sing and play simultaneously. And that’s why KISS shows are so exhausting than the others.
Here is what Gene Simmons said:
“By the time you’re done, you’re carrying more than soldiers in their backpacks. I’ve got to fly through the air, spit blood and sing songs, no tapes, play the instrument live. It’s physically exhausting. It always has been.
I love and respect Jagger, and Bono’s great, but put any of those two gentlemen into my outfit; the first half-hour those guys are going to be on the floor.
They won’t physically be able to do that. The physicality of what we do has limitations. If I was Keith in the Stones or the Edge I could wear comfortable sneakers and a T-shirt and stand still.”
