KISS legend Gene Simmons took 28 years to finally wed Shannon Tweed – a delay he puts down to his own selfishness.
According to U.K. newspaper The Daily Express, Simmons told TV show “Daybreak“: “I will speak for myself, I can’t speak for all men… I’ve been arrogant and selfish all my life, thought I could have my cake and eat it too and didn’t want to ever answer, ‘Where are you going?’ Where am I going? Who wants to know? Shannon has been with me for 28, almost 29 years this August and has put up with my crap…
“For her to stick around and put up with all that, and she knows everything, she knows where all the bodies are buried and all that.
“This is a question for all those guys out there, imagine you’re on your deathbed… Who do you want around your deathbed for that last breath of air. If you want the woman you love and your children, then don’t wait before you die. Love them and be good to them while you’re alive.”
