Paul Stanley Thinks Rock Hall Reunion Would Tarnish KISS

(Classic Rock) KISS frontman Paul Stanley has emphasised just how strongly he and bandmate Gene Simmons felt about avoiding a full reunion with Ace Frehley and Peter Criss at their Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame induction this month.

And he's stated their determination to avoid the concept was strengthened after Rock Hall bosses tried to force the issue.

Stanley says that, at first, he was comfortable with the idea of the present-day lineup performing in makeup, while the departed founding members made guest appearances without.

The singer insists that regrouping with Frehley and Criss, even for a one-off set, would be a step backward. "We can only wear these uniforms with pride," he says. "We're not going to risk tarnishing what we've build to for 40 years just to satisfy someone's penchant for nostalgia." more on this story
