Gene Simmons to Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington: ‘If We Were In Prison, I Would Make Love to You’
Linkin Park's Chester Benningon and Mike Shinoda recently sat down for an interview with Nicole Alvarez with KROQ in Los Angeles. During the chat, Benningon recalled a hair-raising, tongue-twirling encounter with KISS icon Gene Simmons.
As Bennington explained it: "So the first time I met Gene Simmons, I was like 'Whoa, that's Gene Simmons. He's like right here.' So I went over and introduced myself. He grabs me by the shoulders, and he says, 'You are a powerful and talented young man.' He's staring at me in my eyes and says, 'If we were in prison, I would make love to you.' I was like, 'Oh.'"
Shinoda chimed in that Simmons' wife, former Playmate Shannon Tweed, was nearby and cracked, "He would. He will make love to you."
