I was watching my Twitter feed the other day when I saw something I didn’t think I would ever see. The words seemed to be staring back at me from the glow of my iPhone screen.

“Kiss to be inducted into Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.”

I closed my eyes and sighed. Finally, one of the great injustices of the century had been rectified.

OK, so maybe that is a bit dramatic, but the fact that Kiss was passed over for 15 years before finally making the grade did not sit well with me. The music critics and high and mighty at The Rolling Stone seemed to be dead set against allowing Kiss to join the ultimate club.

The Kiss Army has been at war on music blogs for more than a decade, and the legion of fans that has followed the “hottest band in the world” for 40 years will finally see the kings of face paint and flash pots formerly enshrined in ... wait for it ... Cleveland.

All joking aside, Cleveland is the place to be for those who want to be considered the best in the music business. Like Canton, Ohio, where the NFL’s legends are enshrined, Cleveland is home to the kings and queens of rock and roll. After selling more than 100 million albums worldwide, Kiss definitely belongs in Cleveland.

PAINTED LIKE HER HEROES
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
My daughter Gracie has been a KISS fan since birth... or so she says! One of our favorite things to do together is attending your concerts and events, including the past three KISS Kruises. Gracie has never been to a concert without makeup,and we're always trying new things. I put together this little collage of her in paint. The photos in the upper left and lower right corners were taken respectively by our KISS Army friends Dan Guertin-Beriault and Kenny Begley. I guess it's pretty obvious that we love KISS! Thank you for all you give back to your fans. May KISS rock on 4Ever!

NEW YORK – Music – Kiss is finally in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Kiss icon Gene Simmons, the Demon says, “For me, it’s another tug of the shirt sleeve to remind me that the American dream is alive and well. I’m living proof of it. I came here as an immigrant, a legal one — that’s a distinction — and getting the Hollywood Walk of Fame and getting the keys to the cities of God knows how many cities and the wax museums and the thousands of licensed products we have and on and on… Still, no matter how much much noise we make about how only the fans matter, and it’s true they are the ones that put us here and without them we are nothing, there is something in the back of our collective consciousnesses that makes us want to be recognized by our peers”.

Paul Stanley commented, “I’m honored to be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame knowing we’ve remained true to ourselves and our fans.”

The 29th Annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will take place on Thursday, April 10, 2014 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. The 2014 Ceremony will again be open to the public, as it has been for the Induction Ceremonies in Cleveland (2009, 2012) and Los Angeles (2013). This will be the first time that the ceremony will be open to the public in New York.
