Shot Full of Rock

You probably enjoy your occasional cup of joe. But how do you feel about a cup of Gene, Paul, Ace, and Peter?

That’s right—it’s now even easier to rock and roll all night with the caffeine buzz you’ll get at the KISS Coffeehouse in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

KISS bass player and frequent lead singer Gene Simmons is no stranger to marketing. He has managed to get the KISS logo on everything from comic books to condoms, from underwear to coffins.

And now, he says, it’s time for the KISS faithful to have their own refreshments. So step right up and order your French Kiss Vanilla, Demon Dark Roast, or Kiss Frozen Rockuccunio.

Yes, these drinks really are on the menu.

We may be seeing a new trend; keep your eyes open for these upcoming musician-themed food-and-drink specialty shops:

Clay Aiken: Cheese

Slayer: Devil’s Food Cake

Scott Weiland of Velvet Revolver: Coke

Lars Ulrich of Metallica: Danish

Country Music Association: Crackers

Tommy Lee of Mötley Crüe: Sausage

Britney Spears and Jessica Simpson: Pop tarts

I may have to travel down to Myrtle Beach just to have a French Kiss Vanilla! Tommy Lee Sausage, Scott Weiland Coke - you have a great sense of wit. :)

Hehe I love the Britney Spears and Jessica Simpson one!

It seems that so many "stars" these days are trading in any last semblance of musical acumen for blatant capitalism so Gene isn't the first and certainly won't be the last. Any opportunity to earn the big bucks I guess...

As Billy Joel said,

"Rock 'n Roller Cola Wars, I can't take it anymore"

Sing us a song Gene

I am not familiar with Clay Aiken so I don't know if "cheese" fits or not, but since you say so, I'm sure it's exactly the right product for the right celebrity.

Love the pop tarts!

Gene, Gene, Gene! It's so hard to be a Kiss fan these days. The menu items are hilarious though.

you wanted the best - you got it, the hottest coffee in the world... :)

I wonder if you ordered a double- shot of espresso, would you have to say "Deuce"? And when the baristas relayed the orders to each other would they have to shout it out loud?

I guess a little cold gin wouldn't be so bad, as long as they didn't spill it in my lap. But then again, all they'd have to do is lick it up. No lawsuits here. :)

Enjoyed your post!

Seems like the pop tarts are the crowd favorites.

OMW: You have my compliments on taking the KISS references to a new level. You sure know somethin' about the band!

hate to be the naysayer - but "pop tarts" may be the most oft used phrase when describing Brittney in print "Jon Stewart".
