In Summer Gene Simmons "discovered" Van Halen, subsequently produced their demo tape and took it to Kiss Manager Bill Aucoin. Simmons was told by Aucoin that "they had no chance of making it" and that he wouldn't sign them.
Gene Simmons Family Jewels is funny and charming. The entire family demonstrates an intelligence rarely found on reality shows, and their dry humor is consistently fresh and entertaining. This is the only reality show I watch on television.
