KISS frontman Gene Simmons, a.k.a. Chaim Witz, a.k.a. The Demon, a.k.a. Dr. Love, was in Toronto recently to perform at a sold-out gala for Technion Canada, a fundraising arm of the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa.
The Israeli-born rockstar, who has a history of being outspoken on controversial topics, including terrorism and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, is also a philanthropist and advocate of a number of charities, such as Childfund International. During his Toronto visit, Simmons took time to stop by DANI-Toronto, which provides services to adults with physical and mental disabilities, to spend time with the participants and pose for pictures. During his sit-down interview with The CJN at the June 4 Technovation gala, Simmons responded to the spate of terrorist attacks in the West and spoke about his connection to his motherland.
