Every so often, one of music's elder statesmen will chime in about how different things are nowadays -- remember when Gene Simmons pronounced rock 'n' roll dead?

He offered more comments recently, saying that bands today lack anger in their material. "There's not enough anger out there in the music," he told 'The Standard.' "And there's not a lot of contemplation in the lyrics, it's all very sweet ... but that's the iPhone generation." The singer took aim at the music business as well, saying that it has been "stolen" by big business.READ MORE
