Gene Simmons: Lambert Should Do “Ballads and Broadway”

Gene Simmons in KISSWhether they loved it or hated it, everyone seems to have an opinion about American Idol 8‘s finale.

Even though he fully believes Adam Lambert will have a brighter career than Kris Allen, Gene Simmons doesn’t necessarily agree with the contestant’s musical leanings. The KISS bassist - who performed with Adam during the recent finale - told fans that he doesn’t see rock n’ roll in Lambert’s future.

“Respectfully, I don’t think Adam is a rock singer,” Simmons wrote on his website. “He sounds much more convincing singing ballads and Broadway shows. His voice doesn’t seem to have a ‘rock quality.’ But, I’m sure he’s going to do just fine.”

Hmmm, Broadway? Maybe Lambert has more in common with than the Season 2 contestant would like to admit!
