Gene Simmons has spent the most of his childhood in America, having moved there with his parents when he was eight years old to the Queens borough of New York City. Simmons has been described as claiming that the legendary success of “The Beatles” influenced his desire to pursue a career in music, and that he was “blown away” by their ability to perform music at such a high level. Simmons’ initial experiences with music and performing came when he was a teenager, when he helped create a variety of bands, including the rock band “Wicked Lester,” where he met his future “Kiss” bandmate Paul Stanley. Gene Simmons and Stanley came up with the notion of forming the greatest rock band of all time. When Simmons and Stanley were joined by drummer Peter Criss and guitarist Ace Frehley in 1974, “Kiss” was born, complete with their distinctive make-up and colorful stage personalities (Gene Simmons himself playing “Demon”).

Gene Simmons has achieved worldwide acclaim since then, both with “Kiss” and in his own ventures. “Kiss” rose to notoriety after releasing the ‘Alive’ album, which was recorded live on stage in 1975 and proved to be a big success. Gene Simmons’ net wealth skyrocketed as a result of the massive commercial success of “Kiss,” which earned about $20 million between 1976 and 1978. Over the next 30 years, the band published 20 studio albums, seven live albums, 13 compilation albums, and over 50 singles. Simmons has also released seven solo albums and ran his own record company, “Simmons Recording,” at one point. He’s also made a number of television appearances and contributed his likeness to a number of animated series and video games since then. Simmons’ present net worth has been bolstered by royalties from all of these endeavors.

The rock legend, bass guitarist, and vocalist owes his success not only to his work with “Kiss,” one of the best-selling bands of all time, but also to his participation in a number of other ventures. Gene Simmons has been on the popular American reality show “American Idol” and in multiple episodes of Seth MacFarlane’s hit cartoon sitcom “Family Guy” in addition to his music career.

Gene Simmons currently resides in California with his long-term partner, actress and model Shannon Tweed. Despite Simmons’ previous assertions that he opposed marriage and that he and Tweed were “happily unmarried,” the couple married in 2011. Simmons and Tweed have two children: a son named Nick and a girl named Sophie.
