Among a series of questions from fans, was one asking Simmons what his plans were once he hangs up his dragon boots for the very last time.
He replied: “I have quite a few other businesses. We have a cannabis company that’s Invictus MD, we have restaurants called Rock & Brews and I am a partner in one of the largest automotive companies, International Automotive Components.
“We also have a Kiss Monster Mini Golf course in the Rio All-Suite Hotel in Las Vegas, a Kiss limo service, Kiss cruises, all kinds of stuff.
“That’s going to take up time, but Kiss will never stop, it’s just the touring band that’s stopping. I think we’re doing the ethical thing which is getting off the stage before it gets too late – now is the right time.
“You and I have both seen bands that should have been off the stage 10 years ago.”
He adds: “I strongly feel we’re putting on the best tour ever and it’s fair to say we’re the hardest-working band in show business.
Kiss will continue their End Of The Road tour across the US from February, a run of shows that will include special guest David Lee Roth.
