Kiss wild man has married his long-term partner after 28 years.
Great deals on musical instruments
The bass guitar player out of Kiss has, after 28 years, finally married his long-term girlfriend in a ceremony at the Beverley Hills Hotel in Los Angeles.

Gene Simmons, 62, tied the knot with actress Shannon Tweed, 54, which the world will be able to see on TV when his hit reality TV show Family Jewels returns.

Simmons, who is known for his wild days as part of the black and white make-up and flamboyant outfit-wearing music outfit, surprised friends, family members and fans alike when he proposed to Tweed on one of the episodes of the show back in early September.

Instead of going for a heavy metal number for their first dance, the newlyweds instead chose Etta James' At Last as their first official number, which was performed by their daughter Sophie.

That said, in true rock and roll fashion, Kiss performed at the bash, playing hits like Shout It Out Loud, Rock and Roll All Nite and Lick It Up.

Kiss have sold more than 40 million albums in the US alone.
