The Metal Horns Saga Continues

Now Gene Simmons says he wants to trademark the metal horns as a tribute to Spider Man. Who is this guy fooling? No one. He is getting dragged online and he deserves it. He's insane and needs to drop this charade. 

In case you're wondering, I'm continuing to cover this because I feel like we've reached peak stupid when it comes to metal bands. I don't see how anything can top this when it comes to greed and idiocy.

This is awesome! Way to go Gene! Wait did this post just cost me money?

He better hurry up and do it before Vivian does.

Talk about a cheap ploy to try and get some publicity. The whole charade is so laffable it actually stops being funny after about one second.

Thing is, this latest misadventure in idiocy courtesy "brand" $immons will get him nowhere, as he simply doesn't have a case.

This truly is one of THE best examples of what's wrong with social media.

Who does he think he's kidding and who is going to shut this clown down and when?

There's just no way he's going to win but if I won the lottery, on behalf of Metal fans everywhere, I would immediately retain the services of Paul Weiss, the high powered New York law firm that singlehandedly turned the record business on it's head forever back in the late 60's by flipping the profit percentages of concert ticket sales from 90% Promoter's take vs. 10% Band take to the exact opposite. The band he was representing? Led Zeppelin.

The firm is also representing the Trump Organization, for better or worse, as it navigates the turbulent waters it is encountering these days. Weiss would not f*ck around when it comes to dealing with $immons' little social media ploy we are having to endure right now.

Doesn't $immons realize the damage he does to not just his brand but that of one of the greatest Rock & Roll acts in the world, none other than KISS, the band which he founded, when he embarks on such transparently ridiculous plots? Talk about one of the staunchest believers in P.T. Barnum' sage old adage, "There's no such thing as bad publicity."

Of course, if I find out $immons is represented by Paul Weiss in this latest stunt, I'll eat my deluxe official signature limited edition Slash top hat!

According to a friend who was once an editor of a major New York magazine, $immons falls firmly in line to have "The Over 60 Rule" applied to his current debacle. My friend theorizes anyone 60 or over is completely bonkers. Considering, $immons was already nuts, the problem is simply compounded when applying the rule to him.

p.s. Hey, Ripper! The Blizzard is about to hit yo' a*s tomorrow! BTW, I'm going to see NUGENT point blank, first row, front and center. Keep going ya f*ggin' Yankneck! Yee Haw!
