Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, especially if it spans … species?
Kiss bassist Gene Simmons’s newest copycat is actually a brand-new Texas calf. Born on July 28 in Kerrville, Texas, Genie the calf shares Simmons’s unmistakable face markings as well as that signature tongue.
Genie’s birth created such a stir, her owners immediately turned to Facebook to share the news of the fortuitous event.
Word of the heavy-metal look-alike traveled so fast, it even got all the way to the iconic rocker himself. The rock ’n’ roll legend tweeted:
This is real, folks!!! Calf called Genie is born on Texas ranch and looks EXACTLY like Kiss rocker Gene Simmons https://t.co/m6CcUlA7cy

While Simmons hasn’t made plans to visit Texas to see his newest spitting image, hopefully Genie will rock and roll all night, just like Simmons.
