Original KISS Lineup Could Reunite For Rock and Roll Hall of Fame


Yesterday, it was announced that KISS will finally enter the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next year, and it looks like we could get the original lineup of Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, Ace Frehley and Peter Criss reuniting in honor of this momentous occasion.

“That sounds like a great idea,” guitar legend Ace tells Rolling Stone in response to Gene suggesting that the reunion could take place at the ceremony next April. “I think it will be great. I think it will be great for the fans to witness and a lot of fun.

“I recently performed with Peter at the Hard Rock Cafe in New York for Eddie Trunk’s 30 years in broadcasting celebreation. That was a lot of fun. I hadn’t performed with Peter in 12 years. We all still have it. It’s going to be intense, but it’s going to be great.

“I don’t foresee any negative vibes. I don’t foresee any bad blood. I think that myself, Peter, Paul and Gene, we’re the four guys that started the group and brought it into international success. I think that sometime in the late 1970s we were listed as the number one group in the world by some polls. We achieved what most people only dream about. I’ll never forget it. And that’s something nobody can take away from me.”

Also inducted for 2014’s ceremony, which takes place on April 10 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, are Nirvana, Cat Stevens, Hall And Oates, Linda Ronstadt, Peter Gabriel, Andrew Oldham, Brian Epstein and the E Street Band.
