Gene Simmons


GENE SIMMONS, OR GENE KLEIN, OR CHAIM WITZ (HIS HEBREW NAME) or the Demon, as he’s known to fans of the hard-rock band Kiss, used to teach sixth grade in Spanish Harlem before the band was founded in 1973. It convinced him that school is useless when it comes to teaching “mortgages or capitalism or the cost of marriage or the cost of divorce.” You know, the important things. Which is why the rock legend has written his eighth book, On Power: My Journey Through the Corridors of Power and How You Can Get More Power—a sort of Cliffs Notes that you can “stick in your back pocket and take wherever you go,” he says. “Sit on a toilet, on a plane, on a train and just leaf through it.”

OUT-FOXED: DONALD TRUMP IS THE BEST AND WORST THING TO FOX NEWS Fox News isn’t a network; it’s a worldview. That worldview is shared by Donald Trump, who reportedly watches several hours of Fox News each day. There has never been a relationship this close between a sitting president and an American media organization. Trump and Rupert Murdoch, chairman of the network’s parent company, 21st Century Fox, are friends who talk regularly. Murdoch has offered him advice on media strategy; last March, Trump fired the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York, Preet Bharara, who was conducting a federal investigation into how Fox News handled sexual misconduct claims.
