[NEWS] Gene Simmons 申請專利 Wants To Trademark the Horn Sign 

KISS 主將 Gene Simmons 一向語不驚人死不休,最近他決定向美國政府入紙把其中一個招牌金屬手勢申請專利,聲稱在1974年11月14日的巡迴演出中,首次公開這個手勢。雖然Gene的確經常擺出不同動作,但有那個金屬頭沒有做過啊?有網友更指出,The Beatles 的John Lennon 早就在唱片封面中展示同樣動作。

Kiss frontman Gene Simmons claimed he had invented a variant of the devil’s horns hand gesture. To that effect, he filed an application with the US Patent and Trademark Office on Friday to trademark a thumb out version which he claims was first used in commerce on November 14th, 1974 while touring.
