US rock band Kiss have claimed to have a greater total wealth than a number of small countries.

In an interview with the Guardian newspaper, neither signer and guitarist Paul Stanley or bassist Gene Simmons revealed how much they were worth.

However, Simmons – who has an individual wealth reported to be near $100million – did say that they felt “very blessed”.

“It's a privilege to do what we do - and let's say we make a living," he continued.

"Margaret Thatcher set the record straight: it's not having money that's the root of all evil."

Kiss will headline the Download Festival in Donnington next month. Tickets for the festival have sold out.
