Gene Simmons is calling the Foo Fighters “old.” In a new interview, the KISS bassist, who is 72, said, “Foo Fighters, one of my favorite bands. Dave Grohl, amazing. That’s an old, grandpa band, they’ve been around almost 25 years.”
Simmons also reiterated that rock is dead, blaming fans “who continue to download and file-share for free.”
Do you think the Foo Fighters are a “grandpa band?”
