The KISS bass player tied the knot with Shannon Tweed, his partner of 28 years, last month and he is enjoying every moment of being a husband so far.
Speaking at the Orange Amplification Classic Rock Roll of Honour 2011 - which he presented - at The Roundhouse in London on Wednesday night (09.11.11), he told BANG Showbiz: "Marriedlife is terrific, my kids are my proof and if they are any indication then I`ve done the right thing. It`s been great and it was without doubt the right choice."
The 62-year-old rocker - who attended the event with his wife and their two children, Nick, 22, and 19-year-old Sophie Alexandra - joked his family will be going on a KISS cruise in 2012 after the band got 3,000 of their loyal fans together earlier this year and took them on a trip through the Bahamas.
Gene - who claims to have bedded 4,800 women - added: "We have already booked another KISS cruise for the fans next year and we`re also going to do a family cruise if they want to do it?"
