(hennemusic) While the controversy over KISS not performing at their induction into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame next month continues, drummer Peter Criss is sharing his thoughts on the situation in the newest episode of VH1 Classic's That Metal Show.

"I got a call from [KISS leaders] Gene [Simmons] and Paul [Stanley], which I hadn't got a call from them in many, many, many, many, many moons, including when I had my cancer," Criss explains to That Metal Show hosts Eddie Trunk, Don Jamieson and Jim Florentine.

"And so, all of a sudden, I get a call and I'm being congratulated. 'We're gonna have fun.' And I'm thinking… And I know, as I wrote in my book, there's a lot of bad blood, and I just don't trust [those guys] anymore. And I took it with a grain of salt and said, 'Maybe.' But then again, I had to go back and read the book myself and go, 'What, are you crazy? Nothing's changing. It doesn't matter what goes on. Something's gonna happen.' And I said to [my wife], 'It sounds too good to be true.'"

"The fact that we're not performing is heartbreaking," Criss says. "I wanted to. I thought we were going to. I was all up for it. I was crazy enough to think, even if I had to get back in the 'Cat' outfit, I would have been proud to do it. Because, whether in or out of makeup, I'll always be the 'Catman.'" more on this story
