Gene Simmons Lauds Taylor Swift’s Impact on Modern Music

Gene Simmons, the iconic frontman of KISS, recently revealed his admiration for pop sensation Taylor Swift. During an interview with Page Six at his El Segundo Rock & Brews restaurant, Simmons didn’t hold back on his praise for Swift’s influence on the contemporary music scene.

A Legendary Endorsement

“There’s no question, Taylor Swift has taken over and she’s great,” Simmons shared enthusiastically. “I’m a fan. I know her, and she’s a really solid person.”

This ringing endorsement from the “Black Diamond” singer underscores the far-reaching impact of Swift’s music and persona, resonating even with rock legends from past eras.

Reminiscing the Golden Eras

Reflecting on the musical landscapes of the ’60s, ’70s, and ’80s, Simmons mentioned iconic bands and artists such as Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, and Madonna. He was generally skeptical about today’s music but noted that Swift stands out distinctly in the modern era. Read more here.
