KISS: The Hottest Band In The World — Literally has posted a classic video clip of KISS bassist/vocalist Gene Simmons getting a bit sloppy with his fire-breathing act and dribbling some fluid onto his hair. Check it out here.

Simmons' brand-new book, "Sex Money Kiss", is filled with his observations on life and the three most important things to him — namely, sex, money, and KISS. "Sex Money Kiss" is the first release on Simmons Books, which is a joint venture with the publisher New Millennium.

Simmons says that the basic premise of the book is to always look out for Number One: "Go through life and completely avoid and disregard what you've been told in terms of the Puritan ethic, which is to say that you're not supposed to be selfish. They're wrong — you are supposed to be selfish. You should be selfish above and beyond everything. And people that often say, 'Hey, it's not about you' — it is about you. 'Me' is the most important word you should ever get comfortable with."

KISS will release "Kiss Symphony: Alive IV" on July 22 through Sanctuary Records. The live album was recorded in February at the Telstra Dome in Melbourne, Australia, with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, the Melbourne Chamber Orchestra, and the Australian Children's Choir. A DVD of the show will come out later this year.

KISS and AEROSMITH begin a coheadlining tour in Hartford, Connecticut, on August 2. SALIVA are the opening act for the shows.
