GENE SIMMONS WROTE A BOOK?!

What books, zines or other pulp are you reading? What aren't you reading? What should everyone else read?

GENE SIMMONS WROTE A BOOK?!

LADIES OF THE NIGHT by Gene Simmons
Serious.
A decadently golden puffy covered book that even comes tied with a strip of red felt.
It has words and pictures and everything.
It is about hookers.
Packaged as if something more profound is happening, it's basically a fluffy summary of the history of prostitution.
It won't be titillating enough for some, though perhaps scandalous for others, like my mom.

BUY BORROW or BURN?
Just know it's out there.

Gene Simmons as real life example for Marketing Class - A+

Gene Simmons as musician - F- (when the chronically drunk guy in your band is the best musician, you know you have problems)

Gene Simmons as an author - based on the above, I'm guessing the content sucks, but Gene got a sweet deal on the publishing.

Gene Simmons as a decent human being: F---

He might be the single biggest prick in all of rock, which is really saying something. Even if I did like Kiss' music, there's no way in hell I'd spend a dime on it, just to deny Simmons any proceeds.
