Gene Simmons is an American rock and roll legend and bassist for the band KISS, his net worth is estimated at $300 million. Gene Simmons Salary How much does Gene Simmons make per episode of Family Jewels? $125,000 Simmons was born Chaim Witz on August 25th, 1949 in Haifa, Israel. Gene left Israel with his mother (Florence Klein) at the age of 8 and moved to Jackson Heights, Queens in New York City.Once in America, young Chaim Witz adopted the more Americanized name of Eugene Klein. He also became very interested in music after watching The Beatles on the Ed Sullivan show. With his newfound interest in music his mother brought him a secondhand guitar. Gene became very good with the guitar but decided to switch over to bass because he felt it would easier to get in a band. While in high school Eugene started his first band, Lynx which was later renamed Missing Links. After his time with the Missing Links Simmons joined The Long Island sounds. Gene studied briefly at Sullivan County Community College then transferred to Richmond College eventually earning a degree in education. With his degree in hand, Simmons taught grade school in Spanish Harlem and even worked as a personal assistant with the editor of "Vogue" and "Glamour" magazine. It was during this time that he changed his name to Gene Simmons in honor famed rockabilly performer "Jumpin' Gene Simmons". Going under the name of Gene Simmons he met Stanley Eisen (A.K.A Paul Stanley). The two decided to collaborate and formed the band "Wicked Lester". Their efforts paid off quickly because just after seven shows they signed a deal with epic records. They recorded their album but it was not supported by Epic and the album fall by the wayside. After this failure Simmons and Paul set out to create what they called "The band that would rule the world". They invited drummer Peter Criss to join them after seeing his advertisement in "Rolling Stone" magazine. They would soon be joined by guitarist Paul Frehley (aka Ace Frehley). The stage was now set for "Kiss" to take on the world. After five months of rehearsal they played their first show. Before the show they decided to experiment with make-up. Feeling that the make-up made them look too feminine they instead opted to use make-up as a form of art. They came up with the idea to use the make-up to express who they are as a person. "Kiss" quickly gathered a fan base. But even with a fan base their first three albums were met with little or no critical success. One thing that was well known is that Kiss put on a great live show. It was decided to record Kiss live in concert. Once the live CD was release the band's reputation grew because their live album hit quadruple platinum. After five successful years the band members began to feel imprisoned by each other. It was during this time that they went separate ways to record their solo albums. When the band finally came back they we're met with backlash. Many fans grew tired of Kiss' make-up and Gene's theatrics of spitting blood on stage. In 1983 Kiss decided to perform without the make-up. This proved to be a great t venture which allowed their popularity to grow. It was during the 80's that Gene felt like he wanted to take on more of the world. He began to accept acting jobs from Hollywood in 84 and started his own record label (Simmons Recording) during this time. He wanted to take on so much of the world that he even managed the career of Jazz great Liza Minnelli. Kiss would release their album Revenge album in 1992. The album would mark a much darker and rough tone that most of their albums have had. The album was a hit which led to Kiss being back in the lime light. Kiss has played on and off again since 1992 even making an appearance in 1995 on MTV's Unplugged. In 1999 Simmons co-produced the film "Detroit Rock City" which is the ultimate love letter to Kiss. Simmons conquered the world of music with Kiss but in addition to that he also has as of late entered the reality television business with his shows Rock School and Gene Simmons family Jewels. Although Simmons has never married he currently lives with his long time partner former Playboy playmate Shannon Tweed with their two kids. They currently reside in Beverly Hills, California.
Gene Simmons (born Chaim Weitz Hebrew: ???? ????; August 25, 1949) is an Israeli-American rock bassist, singer-songwriter, entrepreneur and actor. Known as "The Demon", he is the bassist/co-vocalist of Kiss, a hard rock band he co-founded in the early 1970s. Kiss has sold over 100 million albums worldwide.
Chaim Weitz (later Gene Simmons) was born at the Rambam Hospital in Haifa, Israel in 1949. Mother and child emigrated to Jackson Heights, Queens in New York City when he was eight years old. His mother Flora "Florence" Klein (formerly Kovacs) was born in Jand, Hungary. The German name Klein (means: small) is sometimes used informally in Hungarian as Kis, this however, did not give the band its name. Florence and her brother, Larry Klein, were the only members of the family to survive the Holocaust. Simmons' father, Feri Witz, also Hungarian-born, remained in Israel, where he had one other son and three daughters. Simmons says the family was "dirt poor," scraping by on bread and milk. In the United States, Simmons changed his name to Eugene Klein (later Gene Klein), adopting his mother's maiden name. He was a part of Yeshiva Torah Vodaath in Williamsburg, Brooklyn as a child, from 7 am to 9:30 pm
Simmons became involved with his first band, Lynx, then renamed The Missing Links, when he was a teenager. Eventually, he disbanded The Missing Links to form The Long Island Sounds, the name being a play on words relating to the estuary separating Long Island from Westchester County, New York, Connecticut and Rhode Island. While he played in these bands, he kept up odd jobs on the side to make more money, including trading used comic books. Simmons attended Sullivan County Community College in Loch Sheldrake, New York. He then joined a new band, Bullfrog Bheer, and the band recorded a demo, "Leeta"; this was later included on the Kiss box set.
Simmons formed the rock band Wicked Lester in the early 1970s with Stanley Harvey Eisen (now known as Paul Stanley) and re
