Gene Simmons Speaks At Kids Benefit

Gene Simmons, bass player for KISS, showed up at a benefit concert for the Sioux Falls Boys & Girls Club over the weekend, where he spoke on the importance of learning to perform for raising self-confidence:

"It doesn't matter if you become a star. If you don't believe in yourself and get up on stage, everybody is watching. You can feel the power . . . and it helps you get through life, especially when you're impressionable," reported Billboard.

The benefit concert, which also featured performances from Motley Crue frontman Vince Neil and Ratt singer Stephen Pearcy, celebrated the opening of the Brennan Rock & Roll Academy in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

The new school is part of the Boys and Girls Club of Sioux Falls, and offers music education programs to kids in Sioux Falls and surrounding towns.
