Gene Simmons: 'Young People Have Stupid Ideas Because They're Young, Who's 20 And Playing Stadiums?'
KISS bassist Gene Simmons recently discussed the "Never trust anybody over 30" stance he had when he was young, admitting he was an "idiot."

Chatting with mLive, Gene noted that many young people come up with not-too-bright ideas simply because they're young and hot-headed.

"A lot of young people have stupid ideas," the bassist kicked off. "And a lot of young people have stupid ideas because they are young; it's called the folly of youth. We think we know it all; we actually don't. We're idiots - myself included.

"And I remembered as a kid 'Never trust anybody over 30.' Well, guess what? The coolest people are. The people that play stadiums around the world are not only over 30, but they're over 60. Will you still love me when I’m 64? F--k, I'm going to be 65, Jagger is 71, McCartney is 72. They're playing stadiums!

"Who's 20 years old playing a stadium? Nobody! So all those silly ideas as kids are based on how far we could see. And life is actually much bigger than we think it is," he concluded.

Oddly enough, the music domain isn't the only area known for such statements. Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg was once quoted saying "If you're over 30, you're a slow old man." He turned 30 this May.
