Gene Simmons was on Through The Keyhole last night - yes he actually allowed Keith Lemon to raid his house! Keith ventured round Gene's house (aided with a map) and visited his gym, KISS room, pool & kitchen. He then gave various clues such as "demon slide", sticking out his longue and finally putting on white make-up however the celebs (Kian Egan, Christine Bleakley and Warwick Davis) then guessed it was Alice Cooper's house...

It can be seen in ITV Player and will also be shown again on Wed 24th September @ 11:10PM (ITV).

Good luck to all our Scottish friends across the border, whatever happens on Thursday I hope it's in your best interests. And to keep this on topic here's a pic of the greatest kind of Glasgow KISS - the KISS Sonic Boom jet touching down in Glasgow! (Pic by Mark Harkin via BBC)

 

So the news over the weekend hasn't exactly been positive with radio stations making a big deal of banning KISS for some remarks from Gene (not that they ever played them of course). Not only were the Daily Mail lynch mob out in force but it was also reported on the BBC News site - as the top story.

"Rocker sorry for depression remarks" - from BBC News:

Fed up of negativity today? Check out the latest episode of Noel Fielding's Luxury Comedy on 4OD. In it you'll find 4 blow up KISS dolls sitting in the window of his coffee shop "If I walked past a coffee shop and seen KISS in there drinking coffee I'd be straight in".
