Kiss’ Gene Simmons and his 13 favorite albums of all time

Kiss bassist and singer Gene Simmons revealed in an interview with The Quietus back in 2015 his 13 favorite albums of all time and explained the reason why. Simmons listed Jimi Hendrix, Guns N’ Roses and more.


Kiss’ Gene Simmons and his 13 favorite albums of all time:

Jimi Hendrix “Electric Ladyland”

Guns N’ Roses “Appetite For Destruction”


Foo Fighters “The Colour And The Shape”


Beck “Mellow Gold”


The Beatles “The Beatles”


The Rolling Stones “Their Satanic Majesties Request”


Leslie West “Mountain”


Montrose “Montrose”


Jeff Beck “Truth”


Def Leppard “Hysteria”


AC/DC “For Those About To Rock We Salute You”


Chubby Checker “Chubby Checker’s Greatest Hits”


Paul McCartney “McCartney”

In an interview with Gulf News in 2021 he gave his opinion about the Pop divas and currently rock music, saying: “Rock is dead. And that’s because new bands haven’t taken the time to create glamour, excitement and epic stuff. I mean, Foo Fighters is a terrific band, but that’s a 20-year-old band. So you can go back to 1958 until 1988. That’s 30 years. During that time, we had Elvis, The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Rolling Stones, on and on.”

“In disco, you had Madonna, and then you had your hard rock, you had AC/DC, maybe us, a few others. Motown, all that great music. From 1988, until today, that’s more than 30 years. Tell me who the new Beatles is. You can’t. There are popular bands. BTS is very popular. All kinds of bands are very popular. That doesn’t mean iconic and legacy and for all time. It’s different.”

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
