The room was packed when Johnny Depp joined KISS legend Gene Simmons onstage on Sunday for a live rock performance at the Lucky Strike bowling alley in Hollywood.

Wayde King and Brett Raymer have worked on their fair share of impressive fish tanks, but a recent addition to their resume introduced them to some very special collaborators.

"It was pretty painless," Raymer says of working with Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley of KISS, who came out to admire their handiwork at the grand opening of a KISS-themed miniature golf course in Las Vegas, where the duo built a tank bearing the band's logo.

The structure is just one of many the pair, who are also brothers-in-law, construct in the newest season of Tanked, which airs Saturdays at 9 p.m. on Animal Planet. Later this week, King and Raymer will head to the home of 30 Rock star – and noted animal lover – Tracy Morgan to install a shark tank.

Newlyweds Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed, who dated for 28 years before tying the knot in October, aren't as interested in romance as they are in sex.

The key to keeping their marriage active is to "put out," the KISS rocker, 62, told Hollyscoop on Thursday. "Romance is interesting, but somebody much more prolific than I am put it better – she should be a Madonna in the kitchen and a wh–– in the bedroom."

Tweed, 54, took no issue with her husband's comments and even joked that she liked him insinuating she's a "wh––."

What, you were thinking the chicken dance?

When Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed finally got married after 28 years together, only one band could properly – and loudly – mark the occasion.

The groom strapped on his bass (but not his kabuki makeup) and joined his KISS band-mates to entertain the crowd of 400 at the Beverly Hills Hotel.

"Our party rocked a long time," says Tweed-Simmons. "Everyone got up a sang."
