The KISS bassist is known for his outspokenness, but for many crossed a line when in an interview with SongFacts.com he remarked "I don't get along with anybody who's a drug addict and has a dark cloud over their head and sees themselves as a victim," and "For a putz 20-year-old kid to say, 'I'm depressed, I live in Seattle.'
