KISS bassist Gene Simmons has revealed that he once spoke at a royal event, for which he was paid millions.

In a recent interview with the U.K.'s This Is Money web site, Simmons revealed that he was paid "silly money" to attend and speak at the event.

"There was a royal event I had to speak at for an hour and they paid me millions of pounds. It is not proper to say which royal family it was, but they just wanted me there. God knows why. I did not even perform, I just spoke."

When asked what his biggest money mistake was, Simmons said, "The biggest was lending $400,000 to someone I thought was a friend. I never saw that money again."

Simmons also revealed that the year 2016 was his best year financially.

KISS have announced plans to embark on the End Of The Road farewell tour and have revealed the first set of dates and cities in North America. The first North American leg of End Of The Road will launch January 31 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada at Rogers Arena and will hit an additional 43 cities.
