Ah, the power of suggestion. Gene Simmons proved just how strong it can be on 'Gene Simmons Family Jewels' (Sun., 9:30PM on AETV) after eating what he thought were tainted cookies.
At a show in Amsterdam, his manager Doc McGhee came into his dressing room and picked up two trays of goodies. "Some fan brought them for the band," he said. "They shouldn't have put them out."
"I ate three," Simmons lamented.
"Well, have a fun show," Doc replied smiling.
When his son Nick came in to check on him, Simmons was starting to "feel" the affects of the cookies. "I feel like a giant," he said at one point, looming over a chair. At another, he pulled his eyes open and told his son, "Look in my eyes."
