Gene Simmons From KISS Said Prince’s Death Was Pathetic

May 13, 2016


Gene Simmons from the legendary rock band KISS goes in on Prince saying his death was pathetic and said David Bowie’s death was tragic. 

Here is what Gene Simmons said in an interview with “Bowie was the most tragic of all because it was real sickness,” Simmons tells Newsweek. “All the other ones were a choice.” Even Prince? “His drugs killed him. What do you think, he died from a cold?” (Prince’s body was found with prescription painkillers in his possession; however, his longtime lawyer denied he was “drugged up,” calling allegations of addiction “foolish.”)

Simmons later apologized for the comment saying “I just got such s— from my family for my big mouth again. I apologize – I have a long history of getting very angry at what drugs do to the families/friends of the addicts.”

Does it bother you that he said what he did to begin with or does the fact that he apologized make it easier to swallow (no pun intended)?

Either way it goes and whether you choose to believe Prince used drugs or not Gene Simmons does have a point drugs will slowly kill you.
