Gene Simmons of rock band Kiss had a reality TV show back in 2006 entitled "Gene Simmons: Family Jewels." Season 1 - episode 2 entitled "Next Generation Rock Star" aired on August 7, 2006 - in this episode, Gene is counseling his son Nick who wants to start a rock band. Gene Simmons suggests the band name CHROME to his son. His son and his friends have enough sense to say 'hey Dad we can't use that, the name has already been taken,' and then Gene drums up some nonsense about how 'if it's not trademarked it's not theirs.' That's one thing, but there's also a scene in this same episode where Gene Simmons shows his son some logos he came up with for "Chrome," now look for yourself at the images below of the design of CHROME that Simmons shows his son that he had drawn-up compared to the original CHROME (around since 1976 with Damon Edge and Helios Creed) font/graphic.... Hmmmmm, me thinks Genie-boy may have seen the original Chrome design before. Also, check out the clip from the show below as well as a funny radio segment with a very special guest discussing the incident!
