"The famous Japanese Manga comic book DMC is being made into a movie by Toho/Sony. Toho Productions are the fine people who brought you 'Godzilla' and 'The Mysterians'...as well as countless other Japanese movies.
"I was thrilled to be asked to play the Demon God of rock and roll — what else? Shooting was from dawn 'till late at night. The shoot took place right after the New Zealand KISS show. I got to sleep at 2:00 am and got up 4:30 am to catch the 7:00 am flight to Tokyo.
"Once there, I not only had to shoot the Japanese movie (which is being released in August — only in Japan), our 'Gene Simmons Family Jewels' TV crew were also there to record some of the fun and games.
"Here is yours truly in a real Geisha House. And, here is what I look like in one of my get ups in the movie. You'll see the results in a future 'Gene Simmons Family Jewels' episode."
