A police taskforce investigating Internet crimes against children served a search warrant at the Los Angeles home of KISS rocker Gene Simmons, but neither he nor anyone in his family is suspected in the case.

Lieutenant John Jenal said the warrant was served at the Simmons home in Benedict Canyon near Beverly Hills.

He said the detectives involved want to emphasise that Simmons and his family were "extremely co-operative" and none of them is suspected of a crime.

Police would give no further comment on the investigation.

Simmons, 65, has been a central member of KISS since the early 1970s. His family was the subject of a reality TV series that aired for several years.
