Gene Simmons Says This Is The Next Phase While Opening Up About His Decision To Leave California


KISS bass guitarist and co-founder Gene Simmons talked about their decision behind leaving the big cities and settling in Nevada during a recent appearance on KTLA 5 Morning News.

As you might already remember, Gene has been pretty vocal about his decision to move out from Los Angeles and California, and he mentioned before that they can’t stand with the big cities anymore.

Even though Gene loves their house in Beverly Hills and talked about how a great place it is, he also pointed out that moving out to Nevada is the next phase for their life without seeing anything related to Hollywood.

Furthermore, Gene hoped that whoever buys their house in Beverly Hill will be happy as they have in it and said that this decision feels like leaving the home after graduating from high school.

Here is what Gene Simmons said:

“We’ve raised our two kids, who’ve now moved on and bought their own homes in the Hollywood Hills. It’s time for Shannon and I to move out of L.A. and California. So we’re moving to Lake Tahoe, Nevada. In the meantime, it’s a very sad but also a happy time.

It’s sad because we raised our kids in this gorgeous home, but it’s also a happy time because it’s the next phase. So no more celebrity tour buses at the front door, no more Hollywood star maps.

A home, a house, it’s more than property and all that — it’s our home; it’s where our kids are raised. And so I really hope the folks who buy this home are gonna get as much joy as we have in this. It’s like graduating high school or maybe leaving home; you love your mom and dad, and at some point, you’ve gotta move on. This is the next phase.”
