Kiss star Gene Simmons surprises MPs as he rocks up to Houses of Parliament

Kiss star Gene Simmons gave MPs whiplash during this week’s instalment of Deputy Prime Minister’s Questions when he randomly turned up to watch the verbal ping-pong.

The rock legend, 73, apparently had some spare time on his hands on Wednesday afternoon and decided to pay a visit to the Houses of Parliament where Deputy Prime Minister Oliver Dowden was chairing this week’s PMQs going head-to-head with Labour’s Angela Rayner.

Looking smart yet stylish in a black blazer, leather trousers and a pair of sunglasses, Gene kindly stopped to take photos with shocked onlookers including Rother Valley MP Alexander Stafford.

The musician was invited as a guest of DUP MP Ian Paisley and received a private tour before making his first trip into the Commons chamber – and he was impressed by the events.

Speaking in the lobby, the American rocker told PA: ‘What I just saw in there was controlled chaos. It was the clash of wills but respectful – the right honourable so and so, it was fascinating.

‘In America, it’s like the middle finger is a salute. I think Americans can take a big lesson in civility in how to make democracy actually work and still respect the other side.’
