If you aren't aware, Gene Simmons, wasn't the most apathetic when it came to Prince's untimely death.
He said that the icons death was a choice since it was allegedly caused by an addiction to pain killers.
Gene comment was;
"But how pathetic that he killed himself. Don't kid yourself, that's what he did. Slowly, I'll grant you… But that's what drugs and alcohol is: A slow death."
Ouch. Come on Simmons, even though we know you are entitled to your own opinion that was a little harsh, don't you think?
Well now Gene has come to try to save his ass and publicly apologizing on twitter for what he said;
" I just got such shit from my family for my big mouth again. I apologize — I have a long history of getting very angry at what drugs do to the families/friends of the addicts. I get angry at drug users because of my experience being around them coming up in the rock scene."
Do you think this apologize is enough?
I mean, what he said was pretty ruthless. That's the kind of stuff you keep to yourself, not share with the world.
Then again, he has seen this stuff happen to people around him first hand. I'm sure that has taken a toll on him as well.
