Gene Simmons has broken ground on his first restaurant. Rock and Brews is slated to open near Los Angeles International Airport in March. Simmons says, “Plans are to have hundreds, yep, hundreds, of Rock and Brews around the world in the first two years, including inside LAX and Hawaii and Japan… I’m proud.”
Other artists who either own or have licensed their names for restaurants include Sammy Hagar, Carlos Santana, Jimmy Buffett, Bill Wyman, Mick Fleetwood, AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd, Jon Bon Jovi, and Vince Neil
Simmons and his wife, Shannon Tweed, will be on ABC’s 20/20 tonight (Friday) in a segment on relationships in Hollywood.
