Gene Simmons nasceu em Haifa, Israel e mudou-se com a mãe para os Estados Unidos quando tinha nove anos, indo morar em Queens, Nova Iorque (durante a Segunda Guerra sua mãe esteve num campo de concentração). Gene aprendeu inglês lendo histórias em quadrinhos de super heróis, livros de ficção científica e filmes, particularmente os de terror (além de inglês, ele também fala hebraico, alemão e húngaro). Formou-se pelo Richmond College e foi professor de inglês no Harlem espanhol. Ele aprendeu a tocar guitarra, mas preferiu o baixo porque, segundo ele, existiam muitos guitarristas, e queria ser diferente.

Um amigo, Steve Coronel, o apresentou a Stanley Eisen (mais tarde, Paul Stanley). De começo eles não se gostaram, mas depois se enturmaram e juntos fundaram uma das mais importantes bandas de Hard Rock do mundo: Kiss, em janeiro de 1973. Perfeccionista, entra de cabeça nos negócios da banda, encarando a fantasia e explorando (e bem) o marketing dela. Mulherengo convicto, tem centenas de polaroid nuas das garotas com quem (segundo ele, mais de 5 mil) transou na estrada. Namorou as cantoras Cher e Diana Ross. Mora com a atriz e playmate Shannon Tweed há mais de 23 anos, com quem tem dois filhos, (Sophie Simmons e Nicholas Simmons).

Depois do sucesso da banda nos anos 70/80, Gene começa a descobrir novas bandas. Descobriu o Van Halen e Cinderella. Retira a máscara em 1983 com o lançamento do álbum "Lick it Up" a ficou assim até 1996 quando houve a "Reunion Tour" com todos os membros originais do Kiss. Na década de 80 Gene tentou a carreira de ator estrelando filmes como "Runaway" (de 1985, com Tom Selleck, da série Magnun), "Wanted Dead or Alive", entre outros. Gene resolveu ampliar seus horizontes e passou a fazer várias participações em filmes e séries (fez o papel de um traficante na serie Third Watch), produziu novas bandas (Keel foi uma delas), desenhos animados, sua própria revista, etc. Nesta época deixou o Kiss um pouco de lado, coisa do que ele se arrependeu futuramente.

Com 1,90m, Gene é um dos maiores ícones da rock mundial. É famoso mundialmente por sua gigantesca língua e nos palcos chama a atenção por sua demoníaca figura, por cuspir fogo, vomitar sangue, além de tocar seu baixo em formato de machado. Tem sua própria revista "Gene Simmons Tongue Magazine", seu próprio selo (Simmons Record), desenho animado "My Dad the Rock Star". Em dezembro de 2001 lançou seu livro, KISS And Make-up, onde conta coisas inesperadas da banda. Em agosto de 2006 estreou seu reality show "Gene Simmons: Family Jewels" no canal A&E, e devido ao seu sucesso, teve uma segunda temporada onde entre muitas coisas mostra a cirurgia plástica a que se submeteu. Em 2009 promoveu um leilão beneficente para uma instituição onde o produto que foi arrematado por quinze mil dólares era uma pedra retirada cirurgicamente de um de seus rins.

Kiss foi a banda que me fez gostar de Rock and Roll, sempre fez e sempre vai fazer hard rock de altíssima qualidade. Ninguem melhor pra estrear minha nova série de ícones do Heavy Metal do que Gene Simmons. Eu espero que gostem.

Gene Simmons was born in Haifa, Israel and moved with her mother to the United States when he was nine years old, going to live in Queens, New York (during World War II his mother was a concentration camp). Gene learned English reading comic books super heroes, science fiction books and movies, particularly horror (besides English, he also speaks Hebrew, German and Hungarian). He graduated from Richmond College and was teaching English in Spanish Harlem. He learned to play guitar, but he chose the bass because, he said, there were many players, and wanted to be different.

A friend, Steve Coronel , introduced him to Stanley Eisen (later Paul Stanley). From the beginning they did not like it, but then mingle together and founded one of the most important bands in the world of Hard Rock: Kiss, in January 1973. Perfectionist, jump into the business of the band, seeing and exploring the fantasy (and well) marketing it. Womanizer convinced, has hundreds of nude polaroid of the girls (according to him, more than 5 000) had sex on the road. Dated singers Cher and Diana Ross. He lives with the playmate and actress Shannon Tweed for over 23 years, with whom he has two children (Nicholas and Sophie Simmons).

After the band's success in the years 70/80, Gene begins to discover new bands. He discovered Van Halen and Cinderella. Remove the mask in 1983 with the album "Lick it Up" was well until 1996 when there was a "Reunion Tour" with all the original members of KISS. In the 80 Gene tried his acting career starring in such films as "Runaway" (1985, with Tom Selleck, Magnum Series), "Wanted Dead or Alive", among others. Gene decided to expand his horizons and went on to make several appearances in movies and series (he played a drug dealer in the series Third Watch), has produced new bands (Keel was one of them), cartoons, his own magazine, etc.. At this time left the Kiss a little aside, the thing he regretted in the future.

With 1.90 m, Gene is one of the biggest icons of the rock world. It is world famous for its giant tongue and on the stage into the spotlight for his demonic figure, by spitting fire, vomit blood, besides playing his bass-shaped ax. He has his own magazine Gene Simmons Tongue Magazine ", its own label (Simmons Records), cartoon" My Dad the Rock Star. " In December 2001 he released his book, KISS and Make-up, where show unexpected things for the band. In August 2006 premiered their reality show "Gene Simmons: Family Jewels" on A & E, and due to its success, had a season where amongst other things shows the plastic surgery he underwent. In 2009 promoted a charity auction for an institution where the product was sold for fifteen thousand dollars was a stone removed surgically in one of his kidneys.

Kiss was the band that got me into the Rock and Roll, always did and always will be of high quality hard rock. Nobody better to begin my new series of heavy metal icons than Gene Simmons. I hope you enjoy.

October has started. That means Halloween is coming. That means it is a month that I am allowed to like vampires during. So, I give unto you a glorified doodle-turned sorta-movie poster-kinda.

If you have never seen the original Nosferatu, eine Symphonie des Grauens (1922)...YOU REALLY SHOULD. Ok, it is SILENT. Ok, it is Black and...tints. NO, YOU REALLY SHOULD WATCH THIS FILM. And as a good companion piece, I will suggest to you: Shadow of the Vampire (2000). A movie about the making of the first movie...kinda. Makes it even more awesome. Really. It does.

----------
I mention movies. Go look them up on imdb.com and then find them at your local library.

Okay, so :iconcelestialteez: asked me to upload this on it's own, and I guess it won't harm anybody (-:

The title is just because 'wicked Weasley' sounds fun C:

It's the Weasley twins doing their thing. x)
Don't expect more HP fan art in near future :)

If I ever am to draw them again nonetheless, I'll make their faces more... Personal.

Have a nice day!

    The Speyer Cathedral is the largest remaining Romanesque church in the world. Builder of the church was the Emperor
    Conrad II, his goal was to build the biggest church in the world. Conrad II, the first Salian emperor on the throne,
    decided shortly after his coronation, on the banks of the Rhine, to build a cathedral. The largest dome of Christianity
    was to be built in the hitherto unimportant town of Speyer, a cathedral of unimaginable proportions. He laid the Foundation
    to 1027, the Cathedral was consecrated in 1061 under Henry the fourth, the grandson of the founder. Twenty years on,
    Henry IV, who had moved from Speyer to Canossa, in order to break away from the papal ban, making the cathedral from
    scratch. The cathedral is a model for many churches of the early Middle Ages.

    In the hall crypt, the nicest Lower church of the world, the salian emperors and Kings, Staufische and Habsburg rulers have
    their last resting found a whole dynasty, which determined the fate of Europe's 100 years. More than 5 centuries was the
    cathedral a steadfast witness of changeable times. Laid waste in 1689 set on fire and in 1794 from French revolutionary
    troops, the quite agreed demolition can be prevented in 1806 in the last second.

    All destruction and changes through the centuries and all tags despite: Der DOM zu Speyer is an impressive monument of
    Romanesque architecture, a unique testimony to medieval ideas, the most important legacy of the salian dynasty.
    The Speyer Cathedral was added in 1981 by UNESCO in the world heritage.

    Sorry for my bad English!

    Der Dom zu Speyer ist die größte erhaltene romanische Kirche der Welt. Bauherr der Kirche war Kaiser Konrad II., sein Ziel
    war es, die größte Kirche der Welt zu bauen. Kaum wer er gekrönt, hatte Konrad der Zweite, der erste Salier auf dem Kaiserthron,
    beschlossen, am Ufer des Rheins einen Dom zu erbauen. In dem bis dahin unbedeutenden Städtchen Speyer sollte der größte
    Dom der Christenheit entstehen, eine Kathedrale von unvorstellbaren Ausmaßen. Um 1027 legte er den Grundstein, geweiht wurde
    der Dom 1061 unter Heinrich dem Vierten, dem Enkel des Gründers. Zwanzig Jahre später lässt Heinrich der Vierte, der von Speyer
    aus nach Canossa gezogen war, um sich vom päpstlichen Bann zu lösen, den Dom völlig neu gestalten. Der Dom wird zum Vorbild
    zahlreicher Kirchenbauten des frühen Mittelalters.

    In der Hallenkrypta, der schönsten Unterkirche der Welt, haben die salischen Kaiser und Könige, Staufische und habsburgische
    Herrscher ihre letzte Ruhe gefunden, eine ganze Dynastie, die über 100 Jahre die Geschicke Europas bestimmte. Über 5 Jahrhunderte
    lang war der Dom ein unerschütterlicher Zeuge wechselhafter Zeiten. 1689 in Brand gesetzt und 1794 von französischen
    Revolutiontruppen verwüstet, kann 1806 der schon beschlossene Abriss in letzter Sekunde verhindert werden.

    Allen Zerstörungen und Veränderungen durch die Jahrhunderte hin und allen Umbauten zum Trotz: Der Dom zu Speyer ist ein
    eindrucksvolles Monument romanischer Baukunst, ein einzigartiges Zeugnis mittelalterlicher Vorstellungen, die bedeutendste
    Hinterlassenschaft der Salier. Der Speyerer Dom wurde von der UNESCO 1981 mit in das Weltkulturerbe aufgenommen.
