We all know by now that Gene Simmons of Kiss likes his women the same way he likes his rock 'n' roll - fast and loud. But what about his taste in men? Linkin Park's Chester Bennington once received a surprising education on that last topic, according to some comments he made during a recent interview with L.A.'s KROQ radio station. "So the first time I met Gene Simmons, I was like 'Whoa, that's Gene Simmons. He's like right here.' So I went over and introduced myself," recalled the singer. "He grabs me by the shoulders, and he says, 'You are a powerful and talented young man.' He's staring at me in my eyes and says, 'If we were in prison, I would make love to you.' I was like, 'Oh.'" UltimateClassicRock notes, that as it turns out, Simmons' longtime companion Shannon Tweed was within earshot, and she joined in the fun; as Bennington's bandmate Mike Shinoda recalled, Tweed chimed in, "He would. He will make love to you." No word on how the rest of the conversation went, but we imagine Bennington has been making sure he stays on the right side of the law ever since.

    "He grabs me by the shoulders, and he says, 'You are a powerful and talented young man.' He's staring at me in my eyes and says, 'If we were in prison, I would make love to you.' I was like, 'Oh.'" in other words, Gene: "I'll tell you what; i like ya and i want ya. now we can do this the easy way or we can do it the hard way. the choice is yours." Chester: "Well, i don't think you and i will be doing anything, any kind of way." Gene: "Okay, i see you choosin' the hard way."

    Did you not like Living Things? I know A Thousand Suns kinda sucked, but I thought the new one was actually pretty good.

    A Thousand Suns had like 3 good songs on it, but the new one blows it away. I actually didn't care for their new album right away because to me, my favorite LP album is still by far and away Meteora. I like old Linkin Park, but the new album actually has some really great songs with amazing lyrics and stuff.

    Stop calling bands crappy just because you dislike their music. I don't like KISS or LP, but I don't say they suck or that they're crappy.

    wow!!! i cannot for the life of me think of a more unimportant article in the world of music.. Thank you for bringing this little tidbit of obviously sarcastic celebrity small talk to my attention! please give us news i know there is some out there please anything but crap like this. the reason i read it in the first place was because i thought maybe it was going to be a piece on how gene simmons really does like linkin park. i am huge kiss fan not so much linkin park but i do like to read about what music the musicians and bands i like are into. oh well foiled again by a misleading headline.....

    Really? With all these Hollywood couples getting all the attention, it would be a nice to see a matchup like this the spotlight. Even if it is, how should I put it.... gay.
