The KICKS 106.3 Morning Trend: KISS's Gene Simmons Is Trying to Trademark the Devil Horns

In today’s KICKS 106.3 Morning Trend, Gene Simmons of kiss  is trying to trademark the devil horns hand gesture we often see at rock shows. Simmons, whose KISS persona is “The Demon,” claims he first flashed the gesture—or rather, used it “in commerce” as he calls it—during a concert on November 14, 1974. His trademark will cover the gesture’s use in “entertainment, namely, live performances by a musical artist; personal appearances by a musical artist.” Oddly, Simmons and his counsel have failed to notice the similarity between his devil horns and the American Sign Language sign for “I love you,” which could prove to be the biggest hurdle.

Just for fun, here’s a pic of Heidi and I doing the “Devil Horns.” Hope Gene Simmons doesn’t sue us!
