Gene Simmons Wins Golden God Award; Video Available; Photos

Gene Simmons was presented with the ‘Golden God’ award at the Revolver Golden Gods awards, which aired on April 11 via webcast.

The KISS legend seemed legitimately touched by receiving the show’s annual award for the artist who most embodies the “spirit of hard rock and metal.” In fact, he didn’t even try to sell anything during his earnest and even maybe inspiring speech, which went something like this:
“All of us had dreams, all of us were kids at one point. Some of us got lucky, to get up on stage. Something strange happens when you get on the stage, it’s holy ground. This is electric church baby, we do it for you. Without you… all of us, we’re nobody. We’re asking the next guy in line, ‘would you like fries with that?’ So my debt of gratitude to you for making this come true. I hope all your dreams come true!”
Simmons received the award from Nikki Sixx of Motley Crue, who himself had just won the Best Bassist honor. During his introductory speech, Sixx revealed he once slept on the streets of Seattle as a youngster in order to see KISS perform. He won’t have to go to such lengths to witness the Demon in action when the two bands embark on perhaps the summer’s most anticipated tour this summer.
