KISS FRONTMAN PAUL STANLEY TWEETS THAT IT “SEEMS UNLIKELY” THAT ALL FOUR ORIGINAL MEMBERS OF THE BAND WILL BE PERFORMING AT THE ROCK HALL INDUCTION IN APRIL

kiss-return According to blabbermouth.net, KISS guitarist/vocalist Paul Stanley says that it “seems unlikely” that the four original members of the band will perform together at next April’s Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame induction.

Answering a question from a fan on Twitter about whether there are any plans yet on wearing makeup with former KISS members Ace Frehley (guitar) and Peter Criss (drums) at the Rock Hall induction, Stanley said: “No way.”

Stanley was also asked if he, bassist/vocalist Gene Simmons, Frehley and Criss were going to perform together at the Rock Hall. “Seems unlikely,” he replied.

The Rock Hall producers are leaning on the original members to perform in full costume. During a recent radio interview, Frehley joked about needing to lose weight and shave his goatee for the performance — but remained adamant that current guitarist Tommy Thayer, who performs using Frehley’s “Spaceman,” persona cannot be in costume that night.

    I can’t believe no one has yet to make the obvious comparison or joke about the potential to recreate Kiss Meets The Phantom. They could get up there and play Rip and Destroy with Tommy and Eric, and then Ace and Peter can walk onstage and get into a fist fight with them, all in full costume and makeup!
    Everyone would go nuts!

      How can we be sure that they’ll pull their punches …?
      Or is the idea for them not to?

    Truthfully, what is the opinion of those who see this post about WHY they continued after the “Farewell” tour? It simply has to be about money? I’ve liked the various incarnations of KISS to one degree or another but, these, days, their show appears so listless and bored. Poor Paul is losing his vocal abilities for real and the spark that existed before is just not to be found, in my opinion.

      Agreed Heath,
      Physically, Gene and Paul just kind of mull around out there. They’ve tried to keep the show itself high energy … but those two just don’t cut it anymore. Somewhere in the back of their minds they have to be thinking “so THIS is what it felt like for Peter a few years ago, man this hurts”. And, Paul’s voice has seen better days, even on the Monster record. Very rough. Maybe the best thing to do would be to hang it up as the final 4, the night of the HOF show. It’s time.

      Well stated Ivan. I agree with your assessment of KISS 2014
