GENE SIMMONS Explains Why GEORGE W. BUSH Is The Right President For America

April 7, 2004

KISS bassist/vocalist Gene Simmons has told the U.K.'s that when it comes to the Iraq situation, he is right behind George W. Bush.

"I prefer John Kerry's environment policy. I support his policies on women. I prefer the separation of church and state. I don't like a lot of these ethical points of view that George Bush has.

"But do I want Kerry as President of the United States? No. Bush is a mongrel. He is a cowboy. He can't even pronounce the word 'nuclear'. But this is the worst enemy terrorists have. And that is precisely the guy you want in charge.

"When the world is going nuts you want a guy who is nuttier than them. I want a rabid hawk. I want a warlord.

"Wait until a guy walks down the street with a suitcase with a dirty bomb. Then you won't think your Prime Minister is such a bad guy. As soon as everything is back to normal and we've got peace I want to get George Bush out and get someone who is reasonable. "

In the same interview, Gene revealed that he biggest influence in his life was THE BEATLES and he still admires British performers today. He loves THE DARKNESS, and Robbie Williams who dressed up as Gene for the video of his smash hit, "Let Me Entertain You".

"We're trying to get THE DARKNESS to open for us on tour this year. In England it's cheeky, like they're having fun but in America they're perceived as serious.

"Robbie lives right down the road from me in Hollywood Hills. I thought his video was great and was the sincerest form of flattery." [Read more]
