I suppose you could class any of his films as music videos!

The Beatles really did make promotional films to market their songs. That's how they hooked up with Michael Lindsey-Hogg (Let It Be director), he directed their Paperback Writer/Rain promos.

If you count Betty Boop cartoons I'd have to say Cab Calloway.

And there were even other musical films before that: jazz, 'race' and general pop.

I have to admit, tho.  KISS was my Beatles when I was growing up as a child in the  70's.  Don't get me wrong, KISS has nothing on the Beatles as far as music.  But, they were 4 individual stars in the same band (much like the beatles) and bigger than anyone for a small period in the mid-late 70's.  As a child, I pictured them as my Beatles for that reason.  With that said, I woke up in high-school and realized the Beatles are STILL bigger than anyone......and they broke up a long while ago. pretty amazing.

I saw Gene Simmons as a guest judge on this season's American Idol. I thought that was funny.

I remember them arguing over a few people. I just found it odd that HE was on there critiquing other people's performances when he's not too great himself.

I think Gene Simmons shoud do us all a favour, and crawl into one of his Kiss caskets, never to step out.

. Paul McCartney & Gene Simmons are two equally great rock legends from two equally great legendary rock groups the Beatles & Kiss as well as being equally great performers & knowing how to make money.

Gene Simmons is the master Marketer, KISS has over 2500 patents, and they've been on their 'Farewell Tour' for what 4 years? I'll grant you that there are an infinite number of Beatle related products/items out there, but they have all been in good taste.  There aren't any Beatle condoms or caskets for sale and they never did any shilling for people to go out and buy the dolls, wigs or whatever. They took the high road.  Gene Simmons is a whore and makes no bones about it.

keeping his name in the spotlight after all these years just like another rock legend named Sir Paul McCartney which is why he's a capitalist genius regardless if you disagree with him.

Paul McCartney is a billionaire. Gene Simmons isn't. So who's the capitalist genius?

Paul McCartney wrote some of the greatest songs including the most covered song of all time. He made his fortune by being talented (and some good investments). Gene loves to talk about money, money, money, he's even trying to get a piece of the action on Ebay for KISS stuff bought and sold. You never hear Macca talking about his net worth and he makes over $5,000/hour just for breathing.

I might be wrong but I read somewhere that his drumming on Anthology made Pete Best a millionaire. Just gives a hint of the amounts the others must be pulling in.

i dunno how much paul is making but i sure as well wish i were him, or even bill gates. bill gates i heard could spend 2500 dollars every minute for the next 80something years and still be richer than Oprah and other Hollywood actors and actresses combined.
