Current members and KISS mainstays Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley have refused former bandmates Ace Frehley and Peter Criss the chance to perform a few classics with the band at the induction ceremony next month, leaving many fans angry at a missed opportunity to reunite the classic lineup one last time.
Corey, who we can safely bet is a longterm KISS fan like us lot, believes that the best thing for Paul, Gene, Ace and Peter would be to just kiss and make up (lolz) and put on a great show for the fans.
“On one hand, you’re stoked being a KISS fan,” he tells Radio.com, “but on the other hand it’s, like, ‘Can you guys just put aside your petty issues and realise that without one another you wouldn’t have been able to do this?Can you just set stuff aside and do one show for the fans of the original lineup again? And then you never have to see each other again!’
“Without [Peter and Ace], the other two guys wouldn’t be where they are!,” he adds. “And that’s just me layin’ it straight! I might not ever get a kind word from anybody in that band anymore. But I think it’s petty and I think it’s ridiculous! Figure it out! Show respect, because sometimes it’s not about you, it’s about the fans.”
Also inducted for 2014′s ceremony, which takes place on April 10 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, are Nirvana, Cat Stevens, Hall And Oates, Linda Ronstadt, Peter Gabriel, Andrew Oldham, Brian Epstein and the E Street Band.
