Gene Simmons of KISS has some heated words for drug addicts and people dealing with depression in a new interview with Songfacts.com .

When asked if he keeps in touch with the original players of KISS he answered with a resounding no.

Whys that? Simple: theyre either drug addicts or just downers.

I dont get along with anybody whos a drug addict and has a dark cloud over their head and sees themselves as a victim, Simmons said.Drug addicts and alcoholics are always:The world is a harsh place. My mother was in a concentration camp in Nazi Germany. I dont want to hear fk all about the world as a harsh place. She gets up every day, smells the roses and loves life.

And for a putz, 20-year-old kid to say,Im depressed, I live in Seattle. Fk you, then kill yourself.

He added:I never understand, because I always call them on their bluff. Im the guy who says Jump! when theres a guy on top of a building who says,Thats it, I cant take it anymore, Im going to jump. Are you kidding? Why are you announcing it? Shut the fk up, have some dignity and jump! Youve got the crowd.
