Once Kiss were revealed as Class of 2014 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductees, the big question that arose was whether the band's original lineup would perform together at the ceremony. Now, to the disappointment of their fans, it's been announced that KISS won't perform in any form at the April 10 event in Brooklyn, N.Y.
You'd think after over 40 years of making music, rock legends KISS would be over the moon about their upcoming Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction. This may be the case for some members, but not Paul Stanley. In fact, the KISS legend goes as far to say, "Was it an honor to be nominated? No."
This short film knocked it out of the park with a hilarious, and fictional, dramatization of how the Peter Criss sung KISS ballad 'Beth' came to be. The spoof starts when the drummer gets a call from his wife while the band is slaving away in the studio trying to wrap up a new song.
KISS guitarist / vocalist Paul Stanley has finally penned his official autobiography. 'Face the Music: A Life Exposed' will see an April 22 release, and along with plenty of triumphant stories of rock stardom, Stanley addresses his struggles with Grade 3 Microtia and deafness in his right ear.
It’s been a long time coming but rock royalty Kiss will finally be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Kiss will join the 2014 class of inductees that includes Nirvana, Hall and Oates, Peter Gabriel and others, and since the announcement, questions have started to swirl regarding the status of former bandmates Peter Criss and Ace Frehley and how they will fit into the festivities, if at all.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announced its 2014 class of inductees late Monday night (Dec. 16), and grunge goliaths Nirvana and hard-rock heroes KISS are among the acts who have been elected into the prestigious institution.
While Kiss have certainly carved out their own chapter in music history, Gene Simmons recently shared his thoughts on the current state of the music industry for new bands, the challenges that they face and the disappearance of the rock icon.
KISS have been around for 40 friggin' years. Formed in 1973, KISS became one of the biggest rock bands in the world with classic albums such as 'Destroyer' and 'Love Gun' before choosing to nix the makeup in 1983.
Just when we thought KISS ran out of stuff to slap their name onto, we've been proven wrong yet again. This time around, KISS have not just branded a product -- they've taken over an entire football team!
