Gene Simmons will be home in Los Angeles Monday night to help kick off the inaugural Rocktoberfest at L.A. Live downtown. He’ll be joined by celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck for the start of the week-long festivities. The event was created by Simmons for his Rock & Brews restaurant and will act as a tribute to the two centuries-old Bavarian tradition (Oktoberfest), with a schedule of nightly events at L.A. Live through October 21st.

To kick off the event, Simmons will lead a “celebrity jam” at Monday’s opening gala that’s expected to feature members of Whitesnake and Guns N’ Roses, among others. The gala will benefit the Wounded Warrior Project, a group that helps severely injured service members. Thursday was also recently announced as KISS Army Night, with a second jam that may include other KISS members.

Gene Simmons on why he’s gotten so behind the Wounded Warrior Project: “You don’t wwant to go to the dark side, but not everybody comes back. And when the ones that do come back are battered mentally, physically, the least we can do is to help make their entry back into society a little easier — a little money, give them a job, respect. On the KISS tour, we take a buck out of every concert ticket and we give it to Wounded Warriors. We started this tour [by giving] 250 thousand dollars cash right to them. We hire vets to work on the tours. You gotta give back.”
