Paul Stanley Calls Out Rock Hall During Induction

The KISS Rock and Roll Hall of Fame drama came to a close last night (April 10th) when the band was formally inducted during a ceremony in New York, but frontman Paul Stanley took the opportunity to continue his criticism of the Rock Hall during his induction speech.

Stanley told the black tie clad crowd, "Here we are, basically inducted for the same things that we were kept out for. The people are speaking to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and what they're saying is that they want more. They don't want to be spoon-fed with a handful of choices.

"The people buy tickets, the people buy albums, the people who nominate do not. Let's not forget that these are the people who make it all possible. We just benefit from it.

"I am here tonight because of the people who inspired me, but I am also here because of the people I inspired. So God bless you all. It's a wonderful night."

While the past month has seen a high amount of drama between the original four members of the group, Stanley, Gene Simmons, Ace Frehley and Peter Criss didn't use their acceptance speeches to continue to war of words. You can read a summery of their speeches and even watch fan filmed video here.
