Gene Simmons Goes Back to School to Teach Kids How to Rock in the New VH1
Series 'Gene Simmons' Rock School' Premiering Friday, August 19 at 11PM*
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., July 14 -- Gene Simmons invades
England to teach a bunch of prim and proper boarding school students how to
rock in the new VH1 series, "Gene Simmons' Rock School," premiering Friday,
August 19 at 11PM.* The infamous "Demon" of KISS faces a monumental task:
turning a group of classical music mini-scholars into a killer rock band.
"Gene Simmons' Rock School" has Master Simmons setting up court at one of
the UK's top independent boarding schools, Christ's Hospital in West Sussex,
south of London. The children who attend the 450-year-old school wear Tudor
uniforms, march into the lunch hall accompanied by full brass band and know
nothing about rock music. So, in just six weeks Gene must transform a class
of classically trained 13-year-old musicians into little rock gods.
Some kids will make the cut, and some will have their hearts broken as
Gene picks a band worthy of opening for metal legends Motorhead in front of
5,000 screaming fans.
