A&E’s Gene Simmons Family Jewels Ultimate KISS Fan Enlisting The KISS Army & Hollywood To Write & Record The Ultimate Tribute SongDecember 1, 2006 12:01:00 by Joe Reality
Bob Brunson, The Ultimate KISS Fan as seen on A&E/Gene Simmon’s Family Jewels, is launching a fan-based song-writing project and promotion called… "Friends With Painted Faces (TM)." The idea is to have KISS fans everywhere write down and email, in a few lines, what KISS has meant to them over the years. Brunson will use this input to compose and record a tribute song for the band. "This was one of several ideas I’d mentioned to Gene during the taping of Family Jewels, and something I feel is extremely appropriate for a band that has meant so much to its fans for such a long time now, including me!" said Brunson.
Dad is Gene Simmons – the legendary, tongue wagging demon of KISS. Mom is Shannon Tweed — former Playmate of the Year, actress and model. And their kids, Nick and Sophie, are, well…surprisingly charming, well-behaved teenagers dealing with the trials and tribulations of adolescence, even though Mom and Dad are truly like no one else’s parents. A&E Network presents the original series premiere of GENE SIMMONS FAMILY JEWELS on Monday August 7, 2006 with back-to-back episodes at 10 & 10:30PM//9 & 9:30C.
