ROCK FALLS – Here’s a fun headline you don’t see every day: Rock star rocks it with fans in Rock Falls.

Musical legend Gene Simmons and The Gene Simmons Band made a pit stop Thursday afternoon at Culver’s, where the 68-year-old famous Kiss frontman grabbed a Reuben and a caramel custard on his way to rock ‘n’ rolling all night at a gig at the Arcada Theatre in St. Charles.

The boys strutted into Culver’s with Gene dressed head to toe in his signature black hair, black shirt, black leather coat, blue jeans and sunglasses.

“Our crew immediately recognized him, and we sort of had to do a double take,” said general manager Ashlee Alber, 30, of Sterling, who took his order.

“He wanted to try our custard because he has never had it before.”

Simmons, known for his geniality with his fans, posed for photos with the Culver’s crew and customers before taking off.

“He was really friendly and a very nice guy,” Alber said.
