KISS member Gene Simmons has apologized for insensitive comments towards those suffering from addiction and depression.
In an interview posted on Songfacts in July, which was widely circulated following the death of Robin Williams earlier this week, Simmons ranted about "drug addicts and alcoholics" who say, "the world is a harsh place."

They've rocked and rolled all night, and partied every day, but now Kiss members Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley are going long hoping to score a touchdown. In 2013, the classic rockers purchased (with their manager Doc McGhee and AFL vet owner Brett Bouchy) an Arena Football League team in Los Angeles and rebranded it LA KISS. Now Simmons sounds off on his new AMC reality series, 4th and Loud, which chronicles the struggles of a sports franchise start-up.

The heart of rock & roll really is still beating.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame staged its 29th annual induction ceremony at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn back in April, and HBO will air excerpts of the event on Saturday. This year's inductees spanned six decades of music, including Nirvana, KISS, Hall and Oates, Cat Stevens, Linda Ronstadt, Peter Gabriel, the E Street Band and, for the first time ever, two managers: The Beatles' Brian Epstein and The Rolling Stones' Andrew Loog Oldham.
Here are 10 highlights from the ceremony that will be shown on Saturday's special — as well as five backstage moments that viewers won't get to see:

It's a little past 8:30 p.m. on a weekday on the Warner Bros. lot and on the set of his talk show, Rove LA, host Rove McManus has one very important question: "Is any of this show going to make it to the telly?"
His show has already been taping for more than an hour, but it's a fair question. That's because this is the first time the Australian native has to deal with the c-word: censors. Season 2 — which premieres Saturday at midnight/11c on TV Guide Network with guests Russell Brand, Adam Lambert and 30 Rock's Kristen Schaal — marks the first time Rove LA will air new episodes in the U.S. McManus is still figuring out just what he can get away with here in the states.
