Gene Simmons here. You might think you know all about me, but believe or not there’s more…

After years of being in the spotlight with KISS, I’ve decided it’s time to share another side with you, a more personal one. With The Vault, I’ve created a 50-year time capsule, a soundtrack to my life, filled with songs I’ve written, but have never been able to share until now. That’s 150 songs that I’ve kept tucked away, waiting for the right moment, tracks with artists like Bob Dylan, Eddie and Alex Van Halen, Joe Perry and of course, my bandmates from KISS. As an obsessive music fan and collector myself, I’ve packed The Vault with exclusive mementos created just for The Vault – a new Gene action figure, an “In Gene We Trust” oversized commemorative coin, a deluxe 160-page book with dozens of unseen photos from my personal collection and track-by-track commentary on every song included — and a one-of-a-kind gift from my very own archive.

With The Vault, I’m inviting you and guest to join me on a once-in-a-lifetime experience. I will personally hand you your very own Vault in your area and we’ll take a deeper look at the unheard and unseen side of my legacy.

Very excited to hear these tracks, but not for $2,000.

Stay Frosty

Hopefully someone will up load them somewhere so we can all check them out.,..

It sucks that he’s charging so much for the box set… It would be interesting to hear, but I doubt it will be that good. His solo stuff wasn’t great, that’s for sure./..

Picture of EVH with Gene up top above the box. Wonder if there’s other older ones of them together around ’76-’77.

$300 would be a fair price. Maybe a little more or cut it down to 5 or 6 discs. Either way it’s a lot to digest all at once.

Gene always has seemed to care most about his vault of cash.

King Edward

I also heard a rumor that he might make some kind of documentary type thing and include footage of people who buy it. Nice incentive but $2,000 – Geez!!!

Not true at all. The Vault costs $2,000 I will hand deliver the Vault to anyone who buys it. Only a few thousand made.

A total rip-off. Of course if Eddie did something like this I would pay $2,000 in a heartbeat :)
