Official Statement from Peter Criss Regarding Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction


To KISS fans,


It’s disappointing to have to say to you, the fans, that as of today, Ace and I have been denied a performance with Gene and Paul for our Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction. Tickets go on sale on Monday, Feb. 24th, and I wanted to make sure that fans understood that no original performance, in or out of makeup, has been offered to us before they purchased their tickets. This is disgraceful and I feel bad for the fans who were looking forward to the four of us being inducted together.



God Bless,


Peter Criss – The Catman

  1. Peter!!! We love you and Ace. All 4 of you truth be told. You have been through hell and back and made it. So as upset as we all are Im thankful you are healthy and Ace is also. You beat cancer, drugs, and have a wonderful marriage. I in my own life have a lot to be thankful for. At some point Peter Id love to meet you. You are such a sweet gracious person. I’m looking forward to that Rock album Peter. Get that done sir!! Your vocals are so sweet!!!!! KISS is and always will be. ACE,GENE,PETER AND PAUL. PERIOD!!!!

    1. Also. Why don’t you and Ace get in the studio and write a killer record. You want the fans really excited? Geez we’d be in heaven. You and Ace have always been the most lived members if KISS anyway. You freakin wrote Beth man!!! You and Ace could kick some major ass. What fun U2 would have recording together. Get Bob Ezrin or Eddie Kramer. God bless!!

  2. Love ya, Pete. Always have…always will. As I told another gentleman here, I didn’t get to see you guys back in the 70’s due to my stepmother having different core values than I did, lol. I did get to see you and Ace in Columbus, Ohio on the Bad Boys tour at the Al Rosa Villa. (R.I.P. Dimebag)
    I even managed to get backstage with the wife to see Ace (after paying my hundred bucks).
    Sometime after that, I saw where you said playing in clubs sucked because everyone did nothing but get drunk and nobody paid attention. Just wanted you to know that even though the friend who went with me was passed out under the table by the 3rd song, I had been clean and sober for 5 years by that point and I savored every moment. Once again, Pete…thanks for everything.
    Peace, Ace

  3. Peter Rocks!!!!!!!!!!!

    I am glad that Peter and Ace got in front of this BEFORE I spent a great deal of money on tickets to the Hall of Shame.

    I do think that Gene and Paul are right in that NOW…..nobody is playing that night. The Hall should have included ALL past/present members of KISS (including V.V….who Gene and Paul left out of their statement).

    I feel that KISS should just blow the Hall of Shame off! The Hall does not want then anyway. The fans got them in the Hall…not the Hall voting members.

    KISS is ROCK!
