Gene Simmons Devastated By Big Name Death


KISS icon Gene Simmons has announced that his ‘Wanted Dead or Alive’ co-star Rutger Hauer has died. Gene Simmons revealed a shaved bald head photo yesterday.

“Sad to hear Rutger Hauer has passed away. He was always a gentleman, kind and compassionate. Sending our condolences and prayers to his family, friends and fans.”

BBC reported, “Actor Rutger Hauer, who starred in 1982’s Blade Runner, has died at the age of 75. His agent confirmed the star died in the Netherlands on Friday after a short illness. Hauer played the murderous replicant Roy Batty in Blade Runner, which was directed by Ridley Scott and also starred Harrison Ford. The actor’s funeral was held on Wednesday. Hauer’s character gave a famous speech during a climatic face-off with Ford at the end of Blade Runner, dialogue which he helped write himself.”

Gene Simmons’ new $2,500 VIP tickets were revealed last week. Ace Frehley was interviewed last month by Alan K. Stout of The Weekender and was asked if he’d talked to Gene Simmons since their public falling out earlier this year, with his partner Rachel accusing Simmons of sexual misconduct.

“I have had no contact with Gene, and Gene hasn’t commented on Rachel’s accusations. He hasn’t said ‘Yay’ or ‘Nay’ or denied it, or apologized. It’s just very unsettling and an unfortunate situation that that had to go down. I don’t know the specifics, exactly, because I did not witness anything. In reality, talking hypothetically, if Rachel decided to sue Gene … in the court of law, I would have to have to say, if they put me on the stand, that I did not witness anything. It’s a tough situation. And that’s all I really have to say about it.”
