Paul Stanley Says Rock Hall Treated KISS 'Like Crap'


KISS frontman Paul Stanley has said the band was disrespected when it was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2014.

"It was validation for our fans, who it meant the world to. It was vindication in the sense that the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame kept us out for 17 years, and were really left with no choice but to begrudgingly let us in,” he told Florida radio station 95.7 The Hog.

“They treated us like crap, even that night. We had trouble — how about this? — getting into the arena. We had no idea about the rundown of the show or when we were getting on stage. It was disgraceful what they did.”

Stanley said this kind of treatment was nothing new. “It's the story of KISS from the beginning – that people who believed in themselves and who were told that what they were doing wasn't worth anything and wouldn't succeed came out on top.”
