Gene Simmons just got a big FU from DLR.
Earlier this week Simmons told Rolling Stone that David Lee Roth was no longer on tour opening for KISS, adding that he’s not a fan of the “modern-day Dave”:
“It bears noting that during Dave’s heyday, nobody did what he did. He was the ultimate frontman. Not Plant, not Rod Stewart, nobody. He took being a frontman way beyond anything. And then, I don’t know what happened to him… something. And you get modern-day Dave. I prefer to remember Elvis Presley in his prime. Sneering lips, back in Memphis, you know, doing all that. I don’t want to think of bloated naked Elvis on the bathroom floor.”
Today, Roth responded defiantly via his social media pages by posting a photo of a boy wearing sunglasses and extending his middle finger. Along with the photo is the text: “Roth to Simmons”.
