Gene Simmons has heaped praise on British music saying he loves Keane, Arctic Monkeys and Franz Ferdinand.
“God bless the UK for giving the world the music that makes all our lives better”, said the Kiss bass player,” Simmons told Xfm's Ian Camfield.
“A thousand years from now they’re going to look back on the 20th Century and what have the countries of the world given us? The United States gave the world atomic weapons. England gave the world music. What a great legend”.
He continued: “I like Keane, I like Arctic Monkeys, Franz Ferdinand write great songs. What’s missing is stars. I don’t care what they do, who they’re shagging, where they live… they’re not interesting people.
“The most interesting people to me are the Gallagher brothers. The interesting thing about them is they’re drug addicts and alcoholics and they fight with each other. That’s really it”.
