Gene Simmons, bassist of the legendary rock band KISS, met with young cancer patients Rosanna and Ben ahead of his appearance at the Classic Rock Awards.

Both Rosanna and Ben were treated on Teenage Cancer Trust units and told the bass player about their cancer experiences before Simmons signed and donated one of his signature axe bass guitars, along with a Paul Stanley Washburn 1800 series guitar signed by all four members of the make-up-clad band.
