Next time you’re swooshing down the mountains on your snowboard or skis in Lake Tahoe, keep your eyes open for the one-and-only Gene Simmons from KISS. What? Ya, he’s moving to a 12,000 square-foot mansion in Tahoe, on the Nevada side, after living more than 35 years in California.
He says, “We are moving out of L.A. for a number of reasons: one of which are the tour buses,” and adds, “After a certain point, we have had enough of that, even though we appreciate the attention.” He’s referring to the tour buses that cruise through his neighborhood frequently, pointing out his house and other stars’ homes. He also referenced earthquakes, fires, and taxes as other reasons for leaving the Golden State, which have all been costly and dangerous, especially over the past ten years. Simmons says, “The quality of life is better there, so we can go hiking without bumping into people.” Did somebody say KISS pop-up show at Lake Tahoe? Never know, sounds like fun to us.
