Gene Simmons, founding member of the hard rock band, KISS, returned to his roots at the Rambam Health Care Campus, Haifa, Israel. Sixty one years ago, in 1949, Simmons, named Chaim Witz, was born at the Haifa hospital to a couple from Tirat HaCarmel. When Chaim was eight, he immigrated with his mother to the USA, and there became Gene Simmons. In the 1970’s he created the band KISS, and served primarily as the group’s bass player. During his career, Simmons added the titles ‘singer’, ‘songwriter’, ‘musical producer’, ‘entrepreneur’ and ‘actor’ to his resume. Simmons is the long-time partner of the well-known actress Shannon Tweed, with whom he has two children. He came to Israel with his family in March to film an episode of his reality series “Gene Simmons Family Jewels”. During his visit to Rambam, Simmons toured the hospital in which he was born, accompanied by his entourage. The tour, led by Prof. Rafi Beyar, Chief Executive Officer and Director General of the hospital, began opposite the new emergency room, Israel’s first emergency medical facility fortified against conventional and chemical warfare, where the singer was briefed on events of the Second Lebanon War. The singer asked to visit the site of his birth, and recalled that at the age of three, he returned to Rambam after contracting polio. His only memory of his hospitalization is looking out at the sea and the ancient sea wall. He was visibly excited to take in the very same view, while standing in the … Video Rating: 5 / 5

*Please Read Before Watching* The lyrics to the song are pretty much self-explanatory, but if you haven’t heard the song before, it is about a little girl who is abused by a parent, and one night she is killed. I decided to make this video centered around Violet Baudelaire and Count Olaf because of Olaf’s cruel and sadistic nature, along with the hopelessness the Baudelaires feel when they encounter him. This video contains suggestions of abuse and death. If such things might offend you, please don’t watch the video or leave comments. The song is “Concrete Angel” as sung by Martina McBride, and movie clips are taken from “A Series of Unfortunate Events” and “The Phantom of the Opera.” Popular question: “How did you get Violet’s name on the grave?” Quite easily, really. I used a screenshot from The Phantom of the Opera, put it into Microsoft Paint, changed the name by hand, and added the image to the video with a ‘zoom’ effect.
