As if there’s not enough anger and bloodshed in the world, a growing feud amid some very famous rock stars has been raging online for the past several days. Legendary MÖTLEY CRÜE bassist Nikki Sixx has called Gene Simmons of KISS band an “overrated, lucky guy that dresses like a clown” after the KISS co-founder made some really stupid statements about the death of Prince, saying “His drugs killed him. What do you think, he died from a cold?” (Prince’s body was found with prescription painkillers in his possession; however, his longtime lawyer has denied the musician was “drugged up”.)

Now the KISS army is pissed. Even Paul Stanley has come to Gene’s defense, like the good life partner that he is. The Starchild posted a Facebook rant in response to Sixx that reads:


“Would you please shut up, find another way to be in the news and get off your self inflated pedestal,” Stanley wrote. Stanley noted that even he took issue with the comments Simmons made about Prince, but “his influence on musicians (you included) is undeniable and will continue.”

Paul added, “More importantly, [Simmons’] work, generosity and monetary contributions to numerous causes and charities for those less fortunate makes your ongoing rant, in the scheme of things, the unimportant but annoying squeak it truly is. Move on.”

Nikki Sixx made it clear to WNOR FM99 why he’s at war with The Demon: “Gene Simmons taking swipes at Prince without actually having the information is what I said #FromHeroToZero. We have no respect for Gene Simmons anymore; nobody in rock does. And I’m not gonna sit back quietly as a person [and] allow a bully to go out there and put down people he doesn’t know anything about.”
