GENE SIMMONS Attends 'Rize' Premiere: Photos Available

KISS bassist/vocalist Gene Simmons has posted the following message on his official web site:

"Was invited to attend director/producer David LaChapelle's 'Rize' movie from Lion's Gate. Miss Tweed and I attended. This is a docu/film you must see. It chronicles the new L.A. street scene. Instead of gangs, street kids are 'krumping' — a new form of you've never seen before. It will break your heart and perhaps offer hope. Go see it.

"LaChappelle, I'm proud to say, art directed/shot my 'Asshole' solo album cover. He's also just directed the Elton John/Red Piano live shows in Vegas.

"Go see his movie.

"If I'm not mistaken, sitting two rows ahead of us was Miss Taylor Wane. And, on the way out, chatted with director Joel ('Batman Returns', 'Phone Booth') Schumacher.

"Joel was all over Miss Tweed and heaped praise on her movies. She's starred in over 30 of 'em. Go to your video store and ask where the Shannon Tweed movies are."
