There are no more bands like “The Beatles” or “Kiss” because of the tv: Gene Simmons

Gene Simmons regrets that now, people who can barely sing and appear on reality shows who are looking for talent on TV, are made to feel like artists and do not even know how to play an instrument.

“The big problem is the tv programs, which make you think that by appearing in them you are already creative,” says the musician.

The bassist of the legendary heavy metal band Kiss does not rule out that there is a lot of undiscovered talent around the world, but points out that technology has also made everyone who uploads videos to the platforms already feel like artists.

“I think there is a lot of great talent out there, for example, Billie Eilish has many good things, there are also many films that are good, there are many things that are also good in Latin America and Central America, personally I like Juanes and Los Tigres del Norte ”.

Simmons explains that the second problem is that with technology everyone can write songs, but they are not musicians, producers, they do not play instruments and with jobs they sing.
