Gene Simmons Websites Taken Down By Hackers

October 15, 2010 | Posted by Mitch Michaels

Two of Gene Simmons’ official sites were shut down after hacker attacks by a group called Anonymous, associated with the forum. The attacks were in response to comments by Simmons about how the music industry should have been tougher with illegal downloaders.

Both and were taken offline briefly due to the attacks.

Simmons had made the comment, “The music industry was asleep at the wheel, and didn’t have the balls to sue every fresh-faced, freckle-faced college kid who downloaded material. And so now we’re left with hundreds of thousands of people without jobs. There’s no industry.”
