Other nominees include Nirvana, the Replacements, Hall and Oates, Deep Purple, Linda Ronstadt, Peter Gabriel and Yes are among the 16 nominees for the

From the Rock Hall's press release: Few bands short of the Beatles inspired more kids to pick up the guitar than KISS. With their signature make-up, explosive stage show and anthems like “Rock And Roll All Nite” and “Detroit Rock City,” they are the very personification of rock stars.

The final inductees -- anywhere from five to seven names from the above list -- will be announced in December.

Inductees will be determined by the hall's voting body of roughly 600 artists, historians and music industry professionals. The performers who receive the highest number of votes will be inducted April 10 in New York. The ceremony will be broadcast on HBO at a later date.

yea but who shows up? usually when a group goes in, the schmucks at the cock hall will pick one lineup.....notice i didnt say the current lineup.


when van halen got in, sammy and michael showed up because the other band members couldnt get along/ they hated sammy and mike


hopefully they change this for kiss because i'd LOVE to see ALL living members be there arm in arm for ONE photo.

Vinnie Vincent Official FanPage :




If you haven't heard yet today, KISS is among several artists who have been nominated for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for the Class of 2014. We feel that our ANKH WARRIOR, VINNIE VINCENT should be included in the event given his notable contributions to the band.

As an ORIGINAL makeup wearing member, Vinnie came into the band at a time of serious creative peril. He co-wrote their comeback hit 'I Love It Loud' from the comeback lp 'Creatures Of The Night' and also saw them through the biggest pivotal move in their career when they decided to finally unmask with the release of the 'Lick It Up' album in 1983. Mr. Vincent co-wrote 8 of 10 songs on LIU, one of them being the radio staple title track.

Fast forward to 1992 when glam and arena rock were fading out and more serious, grunge heavy music was settling in on the music scene. The mighty Wiz accepted a songwriting invitation from Gene and Paul and rose to the occasion, co-writing Kiss' (arguably) heaviest song to date in 'Unholy' which helped them be contemporary with other hard rock/metal acts of the day.

A fair estimate is that the original four will be inducted together, but that doesn't mean that all surviving ex-members shouldn't all be onstage together rockin' it out one more time.

R.I.P. Eric Carr and Mark St. John, you shall be honored as well.

Vinnie has zero chance unless all members past and present are chosen but no way can I see him included even if gene has been cool about his talent recently.

Actually I can see a big backlash if only Eric & Tommy are invited! The hardcore KISS fans would be cheesed off if Ace & Peter weren't invited!

And to that, Vinnie should be invited as well!

Now if Vinnie, Ace & Peter decline to attend, that's a different story!

Vinnie would just wear his '88 face mask and wig, problem solved. :)

The real issues would be the number of security guards and his appearance fee.

Ace and peter will be there for sure. Most likely originals plus current with eric carr and bk a possibility. Vv no way. They will just say he never signed a contract. If he had not sued so much maybe he would be in.

I think everyone who has ever been a KISS member should be invited to the ceremony. Except Mark St. John, he was in KISS for less than a year.

KISS won the 2014 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Online Fan Poll

With 239,417 (17.22% of the total votes cast) KISS handily beat Nirvana as the top choice of the generally meaningless Rock & Roll Hall of Fame "Online Fan Poll." As such the band will comprise the "fan" ballot that will be tallied among hundreds of other votes.

1. KISS 239,417 (17.22%)
2. Nirvana 218, 155 (15.69%)
3. Deep Purple 165,828 (11.93%)
4. Yes 151,238 (10.88%)
5. Hall And Oates 112,673 (8.1%)

This might be as close as the band get to induction this year, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame will announce the inductees soon...

KISS doing a statement on KISSOLlNE remembering ALL KISS members! Respect!

The spirit of rock and roll for me has always meant following the paths I choose regardless of what my critics or my peers think. For 40 years KISS has built an army that apologizes to no one and I'm honored to be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame knowing we have remained true to ourselves and our fans. ~~ Paul Stanley


To the KISS Army, Ace, Peter, Eric Carr, Vinnie, Mark, Bruce, Tommy and Eric Singer, Bill Aucoin, Doc McGhee and to my partner of 40 years, the ever youthful Paul Stanley...and all the members of the KISS Family. This honor is for you. 40 years of Rockin' and still going strong. ~~ Gene Simmons

Kiss and Make-Up

After years of petitions, denunciations by Gene Simmons and roughly 300 angry rants by VH1 Classic's Eddie Trunk, Kiss are finally entering the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2014. Here are (from left) Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, Vinnie Vincent and Eric Carr in January of 1983. They took off their signature makeup later that year.

My prognostication ...

In the end Ace and Peter will be on stage for the award but not play. Gene will float one last reunion cash out tour to Ace for 2016, Ace will laugh and call Gene a greedy prick as hes walking off. During Genes acceptance speech he will announce some product with KIss stamped on it. Vinnie may be invited but would never show but will rant about it in some form then use the attention and say hes releasing "fill in the blank" and once again take the cash and run.

By Andy Greene
December 17, 2013 2:55 PM ET

After years of petitions, angry letters and actual protests outside the museum in Cleveland, Kiss are finally entering the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next year. The instant the news hit, many in the Kiss Army wondered whether Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley would perform with estranged bandmates Ace Frehley and Peter Criss on the big night.

Trace Kiss' (long) road to the Rock Hall in photos

We spoke to a surprisingly gracious Gene Simmons about the big honor, and the possibility of him burying the hatchet with Peter and Ace.

Tell me your first reaction to the big news.
Pride. For me, it's another tug of the shirt sleeve to remind me that the American dream is alive and well. I'm living proof of it. I came here as an immigrant, a legal one — that's a distinction — and getting the Hollywood Walk of Fame and getting the keys to the cities of God knows how many cities and the wax museums and the thousands of licensed products we have and on and on. . .Still, no matter how much much noise we make about how only the fans matter, and it's true they are the ones that put us here and without them we are nothing, there is something in the back of our collective consciousnesses that makes us want to be recognized by our peers.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame started out as a wonderful idea and ideal, and it's a pride and privilege. Now, we've had ten different lineups. It's important to list that the honor is not just ours. It's Gene, Paul, Ace, Peter, Eric Carr, Mark St. John, Bruce Kulick, Eric Singer, Vinnie Vincent, Tommy Thayer. . .There's been a lot of guys, and we continue to tour and fill up stadiums and it is a testament to the idea of Kiss.

A long time ago, four knuckleheads off the streets of New York decided to put together the band they never saw onstage. We were ballsy enough to throw down our own gauntlet. "You wanted the best? You got the best! The hottest band in the world. Kiss." You're God damn right.

See all of the Hall of Fame's inductees from 1986-now

Did you start to think you'd never be inducted?.
Yeah. I think its political. As soon as the fans had their say, I'm told, we slaughtered everybody else. I think it's a crime that Deep Purple is not in and Patti Smith is. What the fuck? There are disco artists and all kind of credible and important kinds of music that have nothing to do with rock & roll. But, hey, it's not my thing. I think the best thing they did was to open it up to the fans. There is an American ideal: "By the people, for the people, of the people." Hey, that's a good idea.

You're definitely coming to the ceremony, right?
Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. We need to stand up there proudly for the fans.

It's nice to do it in Brooklyn since you guys started in New York.
Yeah. It's the coolest of the cool.

It's you guys, Nirvana, Peter Gabriel, Hall & Oates, Linda Ronstadt, Cat Stevens. Are you fans of these people?
I respect all musicians who get up onstage, whether that qualifies it as rock & roll is another issue. I'm of the opinion it's about guitars and drums. That's our meat and potatoes. For the record, no backing tracks, no pre-recorded anything. When you see us live and it says Kiss, that's it. We're live. When we play TV and there's a backing track, we'll say so.

People are very curious about what lineup of the band is going to play that night.
Well, Kiss is Tommy Thayer, Eric Singer, Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons. 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." You can argue that point and we'll figure everything out as time goes on. This one is for the fans. If the fans didn't care, we wouldn't be here. If it meant nothing to them, we wouldn't be here.

Bands often play with old members at the Hall of Fame. Are you open to the idea of playing with Peter Criss and Ace Frehley that night?
Sure, why not?

I've heard you say in the past you never wanted to play with them again.
That was for a tour. But they were equally important in the formation of the band. When you have kids with your first wife, you give kudos. The fact you got remarried doesn't delete or minimize the important. Hey, "You have gave birth to this thing, Kiss, with Ace, Peter, Paul and Gene."

But there's been some very public feuding and bad blood in the past few years.
There's never been bad blood. I love them as people. I just hate drugs and alcohol. I don't care if you are Mötley [Crüe] or Springsteen. If you don't have the balls to get on the stage straight, it's an insult to the fans and the band members

They say they are clean now though.
I have no comment.

They usually end the night with a big all-star finale where all the inductees do a song together. I've heard it suggested this time it might be "Rock and Roll All Nite." Are you open to that?
Sure. What other song ends the night?

It would be a riot to watch you sing that song with Bruce Springsteen.
He's great. He doesn't use backing tapes, either. That's a good thing. What he does is unbelievable. You have to tip your hat.

Do you mind at all that the critics often ripped on your guys back in the day?
No. I'm too rich to care. I'm such a privileged bastard, are you kidding? I get paid more money than some third world countries. What do I have to complain about? The fans love us. We love them. Not everyone loves Jesus, either. I remember when Rolling Stone called the first Led Zeppelin album a "limp blimp."

We also said they were a knock-off of the Jeff Beck Group.
Well, you can't say anything bad about about the Jeff Beck Group. Those first two records were fantastic. And Jimmy Page played on that stuff as well. I know Beck, Page, and those guys. It's interesting how gracious the really big guys are about new talent. We've always gone out of our way to make every band we've ever taken out on their first tour feel like headliners. The list of bands we took out when they meant nothing is pretty remarkable just because we liked them as fans: AC/DC, Rush, Bon Jovi, Mötley Crüe, Cheap Trick, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden. It just goes on and on.

The guys in Rush give you a lot of credit for bringing them to a big audience.
Well, to take a Canadian band on their first tour in America was like, "Who?" But as soon as I heard "Working Man" and heard Geddy [Lee] sing. I was like, "What the hell? This is like a Canadian Led Zeppelin!"

Back to the thing with the critics, it's like you're asking Godzilla why the people hate him while he's destroying Tokyo. "Sorry, he's 50 stories tall. He can't hear you."

People are curious to know why you don't get on VH1 Classic's That Metal Show with Eddie Trunk.
Respectfully, I'm not very interested.

Why?
[Chuckles] Before there was metal, there was Kiss. We don't really consider ourselves metal. It's just rock and roll and all the hand gestures that everybody does on that show, I invented that. Oh, and let me add the word "bitch."

So, it's nothing personal against Eddie Trunk or anything?
Oh, I don't care. I wish everybody well. Everyone should have a happy life and succeed and stuff. Just because we don't want to do a show doesn't mean anything. I'm not really interested in Jon Stewart's show either. That doesn't mean we don't wish him well. It's just not my cup of tea. I don't want to be a pinata while he's going to throw jokes. But if he wants to play mono a mono, you gotta take it as well as give it.

How are you going to dress on Hall of Fame night? Are you gonna wear the full make-up and the costumes?
I was thinking of wearing a polka dot dress. . .No, we really haven't thought about it.

If they tell you they just want the original four guys to play, will you be cool with that?
As long as they are willing to only bring their first girlfriend and their first wife. . .There's no rules. I really haven't thought about it.

To just totally clarify once again, you're willing to play with Ace and Peter that night?
Oh, sure.

That could be the last time ever then. When else could that happen?
In January we are celebrating our 40th anniversary, and boy do I look good! And every time I say, "I'm never going to do this, I'm never going to do that. . ." For God's sake, Ace and Peter were in the band three separate times. And they were let go three separate times. Every time it was about the same thing. How many times are you going to hear, "No, I'm healthy now. I'm fine." It's like the old, "I promise I'll pull out."

The only consideration has always been the military ideal: sound mind, sound body, respect for the fans. They are our bosses. We buckle our knees to the people who make our lives possible, and rightfully so. You and me and everyone else, we just work here. Everyone else that disrespects that maybe shouldn't have the opportunities it provides. The stage is holy ground. It is electric church. Not everyone belongs there.

So you think it's possible there might be a 40th anniversary tour that involves Ace and Peter?
I don't want to do that. Nah. I've been through it before. Too many scars and too much, "I promise, I promise, I promise." It's like the Boy Who Cried Wolf. How many times can you cry the same thing? After a while, sorry Charley.

They both wrote books and didn't say very nice things about you. Did that bother you?
I stand by everything they said! [Big laugh]. I'll tell you a wonderful story. Ace, God bless him. . .You know, when he's straight he's a wonderful guy. He took me to the Beverly Hills Hotel and he told me a story. He said, "Look, I just want to show you a chapter I wrote in the book and just check with you and make sure it's okay."

I said, "Look, write whatever you want. I'm a happy guy." He said, "I just want to check the accuracy of it." I said, "Okay, what is it?" He goes, "Well, 19-seventy whatever it is. There's a swimming pool and we're all out there. There are girls and we're lounging around and I get up on the diving board in my swimsuit and I've got champaign in my hand and I'm drunk and I've got a scarf on. You then say to me, 'Ace, get off the diving board. You're drunk you're going to drown.' I then say, 'Fuck you. Don't tell me what to do!'"

Then he jumps off the diving board and jumps in. Of course, he starts to drown. He says, "Of course, you dive in because you used to be a lifeguard. You fish me out, pump the water out of me, save my life." And at breakfast at the Beverly Hills Hotel he says to me, "I want to thank you for saving my life. But how accurate was it?"

I say to him, "It was 95 percent accurate. Yes, there was a diving board. Yes, champagne in hand. Yes, laughing in my face. Yes, drowning in the pool. Yes, I dove in and rescued someone. But it wasn't you. It was Peter Criss. You were flat out unconscious, surprise, on the side of the pool.

He just shrugged his shoulder. You can catch him in a lie or a figment of his imagination and he'll just shrug his shoulders and go, "Oh well, what the fuck?" He's a happy-go-lucky, I'm sorry. . .when we first got together it was magic. We loved those guys, all for one and one for all. Look, not all marriages stay together. What can I tell you? Cain and Abel didn't get along very well either.

Ace and Eric C 1980/1982 and even on 1982 Ace I do not know or he was!
Vinnie and Eric C 1982/1984
Mark and Eric C on 1984
Bruce and Eric C 1984/1991
Bruce and Eric S 1992/1995
Ace and simple representing Peter 1996 / 2000
Ace and Eric Singer 2001
Tommy and Eric S on 2002
Tommy and Peter 2003
Tommy and Eric S 2004/2013 and that continues!

Bruce, Tommy and Eric C and Eric are or stayed in the group longer that Ace and Peter of the first version, they do not have more right than those who work or who worked at the interest of the group and their small person! If Gene and Paul had a little of clean love, the Group current will play has the ceremony and Ace, Peter, Vinnie and accompagniés Bruce of the parents and sisters of Eric and the family of Mark would rise on stage to be honored with the rest of the group, because the group it is the current and no memorie turned yellow of time adorned that will never return!
But as Ace and Peter is in the gaps of the oversight, they are going to make every effort caught a piece of glory and recover the cherry!

Clean love and recovering the cherry is what it's all about.

from what i hear i think vv is going to be asked by gene to come. i guess vv will show as long as he gets a shit load of security and i guess a lot of money to play. It could be a great moment for vv fans to see what he looks like (other than mugshot) and see if he can still play. I still think even if asked its not a foregone conclusion he will accept. I would love to see it. too bad Eric Carr and Mark St John are not around.

One thing is if people keep saying vv saved kiss this is not going to work out for him going. VV did an amazing job in kiss but didn't save them. Jeez Eddie Van Halen was close to joing before Vinnie.. do you think Eddie would have killed off Kiss??? dumbest thing i ever heard. Creatures tour nearly killed off kiss and vv was involved with that and two amazing tunes he wrote on that tour that did nothing in radio play etc (i love it loud). Taking off the make up and the tune lick it up saved kiss but not vv alone.

He is basically invited. If he can't make it out of the house to attend THIS, then people will think/know he is crazy.

Original Kiss died for more than 30 years, it is Eric and Tommy who owe played and all other members, Ace, Peter, Vinnie and Bruce accompanied with the family and with that of Eric Carr's mark st John rise on stage to be put has the honor to have brought their talent has Kiss! Kiss it is not Ace and Peter, it is a set of talented combination which makes that the group made its 40 years!
