Keep your eye out for the Paul O'Grady show this week as Gene & family will be on it. Currently it's unclear as to whether this is Webnesday or (more likely) Thursday.

Keira from BSKYB has kindly sent me the following info regarding Gene's Schedule while he's in the UK. All you need to do is check out this site over at the Biography Channel which will be updated as Kiera finds out more.

- KISS YOUR EXPECTATIONS GOODBYE -

THE SHOW
Gene is a multi-millionaire rock star, a multi-media magnet and a renowned ladies man - but what may come as a surprise to some, is that he is also a supportive father who attends his daughter's football games and stands in the front row of his son's gigs.

Each episode of Gene Simmons Family Jewels reveals another layer of Gene's private self - a side that he has kept well hidden. until now - and shows how the most non-traditional, traditional family in America manages to make it all work under the strangest of circumstances. Funny, loving, often at odds, this is a real life extra-ordinary family.

Dwight Fry has sent in a Gene Simmons article from The Mail on Sunday's "Night And Day - LIVE" magazine, dated Sunday 31.12.06.  Here it is, transcribed;

AND STYLE.

If a guy knows anything about brand names he's either gay or English.  I am absolutely oblivious to labels.  I've no idea who makes my clothes.  I'm very tactile and go by touch: if it feels good, I'll have it.  Silk and leather are big for me - but I'll have to be careful because you've almost got me talking fabrics...

An advert is currently doing the rounds on Sky One for Gene Simmons Family Jewels which starts on 22nd Jan on the Biography channel. The advert shows Gene sitting on a couch (in make-up) with Nick & Sophie.

Happy Holidays! Here's a cool interview done by the guys at Talking Metal. Thought maybe
were site regulars may dig it. We cover my time with Gene Simmons, Bob Kulick and my time in the studio with Axl Rose. Also Gene and I are both at WOWIO.com  Gene and Shannon have books free for download.
Keep Rocking, JAZAN
