(Classic Rock) Gene Simmons says it's the job of musicians to create "magic time" on stage to help fans forget about the mundanity of everyday life. The Kiss bassist describes the live arena as an "electric church" and says he believes live music can make a real difference to the lives of those in the audience.

Speaking after appearing with X Japan on stage in Tokyo at the weekend, Simmons tells Metal Hammer: "At the end of the day, all that matters is what happens on that stage - that's electric church.

"That's glory hallelujah, all hail rock'n'roll, where people who spend lots of after-tax money come to the show and their girlfriends have been torturing them about where did you go and traffic jams and all that.

"And it's our job - anyone who gets up on that stage - to create magic time. To make you forget about all that stuff and take you away, so just for those few hours...and then you get back to gravity, and all the chaos that's out there." Read more here.
