Final Thoughts

On this show Gene is not really the rock star,he’s mostly the business man.I thank Gene for letting us enter his private life and discover more of his persona.The show turned out to be very successful on the channel it airs on,A&E quickly gave another contract for another season because of its high ratings and it became one of the most watched show on the network.
Overall Rating: 8/10
