KISS cancels their performance at Rock N Roll HOF induction over lineup dispute

While they've been members of rock n' roll royalty for decades now, KISS will not be performing at their official inauguration: at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony.

The decision to remain soundless that day results from a inner-band dispute over the original and newer band members.

Former lead guitarist Ace Frehley broke the news to the late-night disc jockeys on Q104.3's Eddie Trunk Rocks of the line-up in an effort to prevent fans from purchasing tickets to the event hopeful they may witness the original band perform, Blabbermouth reported.


The last time I was on [this radio show], it was a very exciting and happy call. And the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame was very excited about having the four original members who are being inducted to perform at the ceremony. And that was shot down by Paul and Gene,' Frehley explained to Q104.3 on Friday.

"I'm not gonna get on the stage with Tommy wearing my makeup. That's absurd," Frehley elaborated during the call, asserting Stanley and Simmons were the ones who did not want to perform with the original line-up.

In a statement posted on his website, former percussionist Peter Criss revealed to fans that both he and Frehley were not offered a performance alongside Simmons and Stanley .
'I wanted to make sure that fans understood that no original performance, in or out of makeup, has been offered to us,' Criss elaborated in his official statement.


This is disgraceful and I feel bad for the fans who were looking forward to the four of us being inducted together,' the percussionist finished.

In stark contrast to these claims the band's official website released their own statement to share their side of the story.

'Although KISS has moved forward far longer without them, Ace and Peter are at the very foundation of what we have built and this would all be impossible had they not been a part of it in the beginning,' the statement read.


The statement asserts they never denied a performance with two of the band's original members.

'Contrary to claims made through the media we have never refused to play with Ace and Peter,' the statement firmly delivered. 'To bring this to a quick end, we have decided not to play in any line-up and we will focus our attention on celebrating our induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.'

Womanizing Gene Simmons spoke with Rolling Stone this past December and parlayed his thoughts on the situation in the best way he knew how: with a metaphor on women.
'It's like, if you introduced me to your wife and I go, "Wait, where are all the other wives?" It's like, "Yeah, I was married to them and now I'm here,"' the bassist comically explained.
The 29th annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame will take place at the Barclay's Center in New York City on April 10.

Accident is right-Tony cut two of his fingers off in shop class-thus the heavy sounds on their chords.

Well, they entered with little to no drama last night. Congrats KISS!


http://www.billboard.com/articles/ne...of-fame-speech



Fifteen years after they were first eligible for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, pioneering theatrical rock act Kiss were finally given the honor in one of the most controversial, acrimonious moments in the institution's 31-year history. Surprisingly, though, they played nice onstage, with barely-there tension between the four founding members – Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Ace Frehley, and Peter Criss. If anything, their anger was directed at the Hall and the critics who never respected their theatricality – the makeup, the fire, the giant boots, the armor, the blood, the shameless merchandising – and dismissed them as schlock.

Even Rock Hall and Rolling Stone co-founder Jann Wenner announced them tepidly: "From New York, in platform shoes and tight pants, Kiss."

They got a standing ovation for that.

After all the sniping in the press, the decision not to perform, and the fuss about the Hall's exclusion of the other six members who've donned the famous makeup, things were much different than anticipated when Kiss finally took the stage at Brooklyn's Barclays Center: They acted reserved, humble, graceful, and downright cordial.

Tom Morello, who lobbied hard for Kiss' induction, introduced his all-time favorite band with a tremendous speech, saying it was never easy being a fan of theirs. "I recall as a 15 year old, telling one bully, 'You can kiss my Kiss-loving ass,' because Kiss was never a critic's band, Kiss was a people's band." He extolled their "impact, influence, and awesomeness," their hundreds of millions of albums sold, and made mention of the "fifth member," the devoted Kiss Army. He finished up by yelling, "Tonight, it's not the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Tonight it's the Rock and Roll All Night and Party Every Day Hall of Fame!"


The Fearsome Foursome then took the stage, looking at ease with each other. "I'm here to say a few kind words about the four knuckleheads, who 40 years ago, got together and decided to put together the band we never saw onstage, critics be damned," said Simmons, praising each bandmate individually, particular his "partner and brother" Stanley. He then name-checked all the other Kiss members, past and present, but finished with, "However, we wouldn't be here tonight without the fantastic four."

Criss then took the microphone, thanking everyone who's ever worked with the band and discussed how he's been been seven-years healthy after a battle with male breast cancer. He took the evening's only shot at the drama surrounding Kiss, referencing Eric Singer's use of Criss' famous cat makeup. "I want to say, in or out of makeup, I'll always be the Catman, so it really doesn't matter. I also want to say, you gotta forgive to live. It's really important."

Frehley cut the tension by admitting that he couldn't read his speech because his sunglasses weren't prescription, before discussing his seven years of sobriety and how the country needs more education about substance abuse.

Finally, Stanley wrapped it up, saying, "For us, this is a special night but it's really a special night for our fans because this is vindication. Peter, Ace, Gene, we are the original foursome. We couldn't have done this if we hadn't started together. Everything we've done is built on the past. We've got a great, great legacy." Then he took a dig at the Hall, and all the critics who've denounced them and voted against them. "The people pay for tickets, the people buy albums, the people who nominate [Hall inductees] do not."

Backstage, Morello spoke for all the fans . "Kiss didn't change for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame changed for Kiss, and it changed for the better," he said. "It was a conscious act of rebellion to be a fan of Kiss. You put yourself not only in opposition to authority figures and parents, you put yourself in opposition to the kids from your school who wanted to beat your ass when you wore a Kiss t-shirt. You had to stand up for what you believed in at a very young age, and that had a big effect on me."

We're sure millions of Kiss Army soldiers would agree.

He actually lost the ends of his fingers at work.

On the very day the guys had decided to quit their jobs and pursue the band full time.

He came home for lunch and told his mother he wasn't going back to work - she chastised him and told him to go back or else.

So he went back and the rest is history.
