Gene Simmons Vs Critic

(Blabbermouth) Industry pundit Bob Lefsetz and KISS bassist Gene Simmons squared off in a battle royale of massive egos at Canadian Music Week after the pair exchanged e-mail insults on the first day of the conference.

Lefsetz was critical of what he saw as a solely self-promotional appearance by Simmons, who he said had little success with his label in the past.

"Just because you're a big musical act, that doesn't mean you're a decent executive, that you can run a record company," Lefsetz wrote to the thousands who receive his regular e-mails on the music business. "That's like saying a great football coach has to have been a star quarterback. They're different skills. One that Mr. Simmons has yet to master. Sure, he made that demo tape with Van Halen, but the band ended up on Warner Brothers!" - Watch a video of the debate and read more here
