Gene Simmons talks about Pixel, release of new KISS Live Cases

One change that Google made when they launched their Pixel line of smartphones last year was to ramp up the marketing of their new line of devices. What better way to continue that effort as we hit the summer months than through a partnership with a brand that may be synonymous with unique marketing, the super band KISS, and in particular frontman Gene Simmons who has become a brand unto himself. Google has partnered with KISS to make new Live Cases for Pixel and Nexus phones available and spent some time interviewing Gene Simmons in conjunction with the launch about his love for his Pixel phone.

Simmons shared that he really likes his Pixel phone, especially the camera and the great photos he has been able to capture with it. He also noted his attraction to the design of the Pixel and how technologically advanced it is while remaining easy to use. Simmons shared that one of the big uses he gets from the device is the ability to search for new places to eat when out on the road. Being a musician, he also noted that he is constantly using the Google Assistant to listen to music throughout the day.

As far as the Live Cases, Simmons says it was exciting for him and his KISS bandmates to work with Google to design the new cases. He thinks Live Cases may be a new form of the classic concert t-shirt in giving fans a way to show their love for the band.
