He was the only child of a German Nazi concentration camp survivor and came to America at age 8. Gene, his wife, and two children starred in the A&E television series, Gene Simmons Family Jewels, for nine seasons. And of course you know Kiss for their rock music with hit songs like "Rock and Roll All Nite," "Shout It Out Loud," "Forever," and "Psycho Circus." They are also known for their mega-marketing. Kiss merchandise is everywhere! Did you see the new Hello Kitty Kiss items? Gene also recently opened a new restaurant franchise called Rock & Brews and is part owner of the new arena football team aptly named LA Kiss! And finally Kiss is being inducted in the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame this year!
