Billboard interviews Debbie Gibson at the Rock of Ages film premiere in Hollywood June 8th, 2012

Posted by Levine Communications Office on June 11, 2012

…Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott joked that Rock of Ages is like a museum of all the trouble the band got themselves into in the early days. “We have a lot of good stories but nothing we can share without a lawyer present!”

Gene Simmons explained that KISS broke The Sunset Strip in for the hair/metal bands honored in Rock of Ages. “We pounded the pavement in the ’70’s when a lot of these guys were still little children in their moms’ wombs.” He also cited his favorite hair band trend as being “when guys tried to dress as pretty as their girlfriends.”

“Electric Youth” singer Debbie Gibson was happy to see so many people out in support of the hair band music era and she admitted to being a giant Poison fan despite C.C.’s 1988 rumor about the two of them being engaged. “People still come up to him and say, ‘Where’s Debbie. Are you guys married yet or what?”

 Joel Hoekstra of Night Ranger has been part of the Rock of Ages on Broadway for the past three and a half years and considers it a masterpiece. “The hope is that it will expose this amazing music to a whole new generation of people and that’s what’s really cool about it.”
