Gene Simmons moved from Israel with his mother Florence Klein to the New York City when the boy was only 8 years old.

Because his mother started to see his interest and true potential in music, she bought him a secondhand guitar.

It was that time when he was working in “Vogue” and “Glamour”, when he decided to change his name once again and this time he changed it into Gene Simmons in order to honor rock performer Jumpin’ Gene Simmons. His music career escalated when he and one of his friends created a band called “Wicked Lester”, which was signed with the Epic Records label company. From that time he got really successful and created a band now known as “Kiss”. More members joined the group and began their way to fame. Gene Simmons is considered to be one of the best musicians of all time and this is why Gene Simmons net worth is that high.
