And we’re not speaking about his music.
The co-founder of KISS spoke to CNN about how he started painting through the Covid-19 pandemic as a pastime to decompress, and, now, he is truly promoting his art work.
“My family and I were up in Whistler self-quarantining and staying away from people and I went into a warehouse and I’ve always doodled all my life since I was a kid and I never painted before and I wanted to see what would happen. So without qualification, resume or experience, I ordered paints, canvases, huge ones … and just went to town, never thinking anybody would like it or or even care.”
It seems that this was greater than only a pastime. Simmons held his first artwork present on the Animazing Gallery on the Venetian in Las Vegas this month and might be making appearances on the venue this weekend.
KISS, which was shaped in 1973, has a Las Vegas residency and the group might be acting on New Year’s Eve. Simmons, who just lately recovered from Covid-19, says the choice to carry out once more has not been straightforward.
“We we always stress that people should be wearing masks and get vaccinated. But you can only lead a horse to water. So far different states have different rules … I have an ethical problem, you know, with the idea of it,” Simmons mentioned.
“I was vaccinated twice and I have to tell you, my hand to God, I felt nothing,” Simmons mentioned of his expertise with Covid and the protection vaccines present. “Out of respect for everyone round me, family members and so forth and followers, I’ve self quarantined myself for 2 weeks, which is what you are speculated to do as a result of it ain’t about you, it is about them.
