The 73-year-old ‘Detroit Rock City’ star insists he is not scared of death because he’s been blessed with an ‘amazing life’ and he’s really grateful for that.
AceShowbiz –Gene Simmons is not afraid of death. Insisting that, unless a car drives into him, he’s not scared of dying, the KISS rocker, 73, will go out knowing what an “amazing life” he’s been blessed with.
“I’d be a complete arsehole, certainly more than I am now, if I wasn’t grateful for this amazing life. I mean, if it ended today, I know that my tombstone would say, ‘Thank you and good night.’ What more could you hope for? So I’m not afraid of death unless a car is coming straight into your face. You kind of go, ‘Oh my God!’ But that’s just instinct,” he spoke to Goldmine magazine.
The “Detroit Rock City” hitmaker added how he wants to ensure his finances are in order before leaves this world, so his family doesn’t have any hefty bills to pay. Asked if he thinks about his own mortality more now he’s in his 70s, he replied, “I do, but only in terms of pragmatism, which is how up to date is the will.”
“I want to make sure there are no taxes, there are no liens, there’s nothing so that my family and my kids get taken care of, just sort of pragmatic taking care of business.”
The star also said he he had no “friends” and he’s fine with that because he prefered his own company.
Gene – who previously dated fellow music stars Cher and Diana Ross – has daughter Sophie, 30, and son Nick, 33, with wife Shannon Tweed.
