(from loudwire.com) Rock on! The Cathouse Lives … at least it did over the weekend as a number of rockers who once played the Los Angeles Sunset Strip rock-filled residency gathered together with founder Riki Rachtman to revive The Cathouse as part of the Cathouse Live festival at Irvine Meadows in Southern California.


GENE SIMMONS and PAUL STANLEY's American football team is at the center of a lawsuit filed by their former quarterback MATT BASSUENER. The rockers, who co-own Los Angeles Kiss, have been hit with legal action from Bassuener, who claims he was kicked out of his home after injury left him unable to play. Bassuener broke his hand in May (15), putting him out of action for months, and he claims in August (15), Los Angeles Kiss bosses ordered the locks to be changed on his apartment, which was subsidized by the team. The athlete, who is suing to get his belongings back, is no longer part of the squad. (from philly.com)

Outspoken Kiss icon Gene Simmons is a journalist’s dream, always good for colorful quotes on a variety of subjects. Like when the subject turns to Kiss’ place in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Simmons questions why acts like Madonna and Donna Summer are in there. And he wonders: “When is Led Zeppelin going to be in the Hip-Hop Hall of Fame?”

One of the world’s best-selling bands of all time can still attract a crowd after 40+ years no matter where they play. Complete with full costumes and make-up, KISS recently brought their elaborate live show to Europe this summer, kicking off its 40th Anniversary European Tour May 30th in Munich's Olympic Park.


KISS fans know that their heroes are the greatest rock band on the planet, and that their 2014 induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame was long overdue.

Think about it: for over 40 years Gene Simmons and co. have dominated arenas worldwide, consistently putting out some of the greatest albums in rock history and writing many of the most anthemic songs ever to grace the genre. On top of that, their iconic image has been ripped off by more bands than anyone can count (that means you, Slipknot!). They deserve wider recognition, yet they still seem to be a cult band, worshipped by fans and overlooked by everyone else.
