Here you can also post any related video's of Elvis too, except impersonator video's where they imitate Elvis' voice of material he recorded.

I have that DVD James and to be fair to Gene Simmons that was just a tiny bit of what he actually said about Elvis. I wrote on this site about it a little while ago in Off Topic under the header For Genesim.

He's a money-whore, but thank God he made all those great records first, like "Lick It Up."

He is basically saying "Gene Simmons is an idiot."

Sorry, I didn't mean to knock Gene and my point got lost between the Subject title and text body. Basically I'm saying he doesn't have a clue about Elvis with respect to the subject he brings up in the video. The whole bit about the Colonel telling Ed Sullivan not to film Elvis below the waist to create controversy is giving the colonel way too much credit. He sounds very uniformed about Elvis in everything he said about him in that clip, hence clueless.

Kiss on the other hand was a great band with a lot of hits, though I never listened to them much. I met Gene once and took his photo, thought it was cool of him to thank me for asking before I took it.

One might say Elvis had his pick of the litter, as opposed to whatever or whomever Simmons spent time with.
