Rock Hall KISS Off
Blabbermouth reports: KISS' official web site, KissOnline.com, has been updated with part two of a brand new interview with KISS guitarist/vocalist Paul Stanley. "The beauty of America is that you can basically start any kind of private club you want to. This one happens to be called the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. It's a very impressive name for a club but it's an illusion. It's the creation of a group of industry people and critics who decide who they deem as qualified to be in their little admiration society. It's their Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, but it's not the people's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Have you ever voted? I know I haven't. That's why the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, besides having people who very much belong in there, have an abundance of people who most people will scratch their head and not even have a clue who they are. I don't have anything against anybody who's been inducted, but more than a couple of them are a joke. A band or musician's impact is measured by how they change and influence society and other musicians. That and how many albums and concert tickets they sell should be what gets them into the Hall of Fame. As far as I'm concerned it's a private club with a misleading name. It's a sham."

Whiter Teeth or Lighter Wallet?
Metal Sludge reports: Johnny & Joey Gioeli the brothers who formed Hardline are under investigation for a teeth whitening scam. These guys use to play the Sunset Strip as Brunette and hailed from Pennsylvania originally. 

Mary Ann Hughes of Forest Park wanted to breathe life into her dead tooth. ...$3.95 on her debit card would cover the shipping. Instead of a trail size, Hughes received full supply, and an invoice. "So I opened that and there was a charge for $106.90." 

There was a catch in the fine print. Anyone ordering the free treatment, instantly agreed to pay for a shipment of the product every 60 days. They'd have to call to cancel or the whitener and charges would keep coming. [see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

punkbands reports: As previously reported the Misfits are currently at work writing an all-new studio album.
