Creed's Mark Tremonti Has Harsh Words For Gene Simmons

(Classic Rock) Mark Tremonti believes Gene Simmons has only said rock is dead because the Kiss star is falling out of the limelight himself. The Alter Bridge and Creed guitarist - who is currently working on his solo project's second album - is the latest star to dismiss Simmons' claim that the genre was "murdered" by the internet and falling record company support.

Tremonti says: "I think people's waning interest in Gene Simmons as a person is what's making him say that. I would say that maybe a portion of his career is dead - but the rest of us are still out there and loving it and doing it.

"Just because his career is coming to a close it's kind of selfish for him to say that it's dead. Maybe that's his world, but not the rest of our worlds." Read more here.
