    you know its funny you always here people say that they dont like Elvis music,or blah blah, samething goes with some of my friends, so they'll ask me to play them some of Elvis's other song's i usually like to play them a lil of everything,but especially from 69-72 and once i play them the song's they always say the same thing,my guy friends will usually say, man Elvis Rocked out!!!, and my lady friends always say, Elvis had an amazing voice,but everyone usually are amazed by what he could do,and that he was so much more than just hound dog,all shook up,and other song's, i'll tell you what in vegas 69 Elvis rocked alot harder than most rock act's in the 70's.
    Play it James!

    donut was correct when she posted its not gene simmons. The article l posted was about a different gene simmons that died and l didn't read that part not knowing there was two guys with the same name. The guy that died was called jumping gene simmons and he met elvis. anyhow its the kiss guy that coming to graceland.

    Yes Rosanne. The one who visited Graceland is Gene Simmons from KISS and the one p31 posted the information about in post #7 is not. I think Gene from KISS chose his artistic name with the other Gene in mind anyway

    The other singer is little-known Jumpin Gene Simmons. Like Elvis, he was born in Tupelo. He died in 2006.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jumpin'_Gene_Simmons

    He supposedly performed as an opening act for Elvis in Tupelo. If this is true - and it's a big if - then it certainly was before Elvis became famous; because it certainly wasn't at Elvis' gigs there in '56 and '57.

    And I would suggest the following is crap:

    "Early on he met Elvis Presley through an acquaintance, before Presley broke on the national scene with Heartbreak Hotel early in 1956. Simmons would later be the opening act at a show in Tupelo given by Presley. Simmons asked Presley about the chances of his recording at Sun Records, and Presley arranged for him to have an audition."

    Cannot believe how they make it a "big deal" for Gene not to touch anything - don't touch the chair . . . don't touch the bar stool in the kitchen. Maybe I don't understand. I can see their point w/ the regular visitors to Graceland, but this was a private tour w/ the ropes taken down. I remember Oprah's visit when they went to the archives room and Oprah touched a check made out to Sony West w/o her glove on.

    Most of that "reality" show is staged.

    Gene is all about getting attention for himself (not that his show is aired here, I haven't seen it).

    Hi Jen
    He didn't impress me with his latest, releasing a "private" video (all for self promotion I think, not accidentally released) to again, promote himself.

    I deeply dislike his attitude to women.

    Have you heard about that one?

    Im sure Gene's ego is no bigger than Elvis' was.He just plays it up for the camera's.It all about show business.It's just part of the persona he has created for himself.

    Exactly.

    Anyone who's seen his fabulous show Rock School will know what a kind and generous person he is deep down.

    The rest is just bravado.

    Me and my brother met him when we were young teens and he was a total jerk to us. We at that point sold all his records and never bought a Kiss LP again. Goes to show how different Elvis was with his fans. He is far from the spirit of Elvis.
