Gene sounds "very scientology" to me. I hope people that are clueless may experience it for a month, not a day or a week. A whole month, just to get the idea! Then after that month, let them try imagining what it must be like to deal with it a lifetime.

What he should have said is, "There's no cure for being an as*hole like myself."

Their egos are out of control, thinking the public wants to hear their gibberish and foolish speech.

For those of you who "get it", yes he said something very ignorant, uninformed, and hateful. He might have meant that people don't have it that bad yet they claim they do. However, that is not what he said. He said to kill yourself if you are depressed. Just because some aging rock star who uses his tongue for attention hasn't suffered mental illness does not mean it is not real. Depression can affect anyone, and we don't know why. There are people that have faced unspeakable horrors, yet hope lives in their soul. There are others who appear to have it all, yet despair controls their every thought. Depressed people do not need someone like Mr. Simmons telling them to go ahead and kill themselves. If he can't speak with sense, he shouldn't speak at all.

There are some great points made here!

It seems there is little Gene Simmons will not say if it might possibly get him media coverage, and thereby move a little more of his product. The fact that he craves attention as much as he craves a few more dollars undoubtedly increases his proclivity to say outrageous things, in the same way that some children will be rude if only that means more people will pay them attention.

He has all the subtlety of a rodeo clown, and even less class.

Gene Simmons has always disgusted me, so his crude comment does not surprise me in the least. What a sorry person.
