GENE SIMMONS Reportedly Branded 'An Idiot' By U.K. TV Exec

Zoe Street of Gigwise.com is reporting that KISS bassist/vocalist Gene Simmons may have been re-commissioned for the second series of "Rock School", but not everybody is enamored of the face-painted glam-rocker.

The bassist proved a triumphant success on the upcoming television series — which sees him teaching posh classical music students how to "raawk." The 13-year-old boffins eventually open a show for MOTÖRHEAD and a jolly good time is had by all.

U.K.'s Channel 4 were so chuffed with the results they have ordered a second series before the first one has even been broadcast.

But Gene could be forgiven for turning his nose up — as Channel 4's entertainment boss reportedly remarked, "If I said Simmons wasn't an idiot, I'd be lying."
