Rock Hall of Fame KISS-off (A Top Story)
On Tuesday Rock Hall of Fame KISS-off was a top story. Here is the recap: (hennemusic) The annual Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame induction ceremony happens next week, which puts the Cleveland institution on a lot of people's minds this time of year. Among of the outspoken critics of the Hall are KISS, a band that's been eligible for induction since 1999, but has a lone nomination in 2010 to their name. If the band were inducted, would they show up?
"Gladly," says Paul Stanley, "because it means something to the fans. The fans want us in the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame so, of course, we'll do it for them."
Stanley added, "but when you don't even know who's voting for these people, it's a great marketing ploy: you have a bunch of people who came up with this title – 'Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame.' Who are these people who do the voting? It's obviously not the people, because when you look at some of the nominees you don't even know who they are." - more on this story
