Just because you died, that makes you an icon? How about Madonna?

According to Gene Simmons, Kurt Cobain and Amy Winehouse aren’t music icons. “From 1984 until today, name one superstar that’s bigger than their music, and not just somebody that’s recorded one or two records, but another Queen or another AC/DC, or somebody with a body of work? You can’t name one. Kurt Cobain — no, that’s one or two records. That’s not enough. Amy Winehouse — that’s one or two records. That’s not enough. What, just because you died, that makes you an icon? No, no, there aren’t any.” How about Madonna?
