Gene Simmons is throwing a little shade at Mick Jagger.

The 72-years old Kiss frontman recently compared himself to the 78-year-old Stones singer explaining, “Jagger’s in amazing shape, but he wouldn’t last half an hour in my outfit. I’m 72 and still in great shape. You’ve got to spit fire, fly through the air and all that stuff. And you do it for two hours.”

Simmons also admits that his peak show days may be soon behind him saying, “Am I going to be convincing doing this at 75? No. Because I still have to wear these dragon boots proudly. Each of them weigh almost as much as a bowling ball, on their own. Plus I wear about forty pounds of armor and studs and guitars that I’m carrying around on eight-inch platform heels. The physicality of what we do is just crazy. At some point, you’ve got to have some dignity and pride and quit while the gettin’s good.”

Kiss are currently doing their “End of the Road” world tour.

Would you rather be Gene Simmons or Mick Jagger?
