Want to succeed in business in America?  Look no further than KISS front-man Gene Simmons.

Simmons shared with the cast of Fox & Friends a lot of what made him successful, but said that one of the best ways to achieve success in America is simply by learning English.

"You have an inferred fiduciary duty to yourselves and that’s business language and you better get hip to it, which means it’s your responsibility to learn how to speak English, number one," Simmons said.

"It is the first key that will unlock the doors of success.  Otherwise we’re all going to go back to the Tower of Babel with God very upset with people and created different languages."

Unlike most people who advocate for speaking English, Simmons is not a natural-born American.

Simmons, born as Chaim Witz, immigrated from Israel with his mother when he was 8 years old.

"English is my third language. so I’m not here to say speak English because I’m American," Simmons said.

If Gene Simmons can go from fire-breathing rock star to successful entrepreneur, anything's possible.
