Excerpted from a review by MICK BURGESS

The critics hated them and said that they would never last. Those same critics must now be eating a ton of humble pie as KISS reach their 40th birthday still going strong with over 100 million sales behind them, a collection of gold and platinum discs only surpassed by The Beatles and The Stones and a recent, yet controversial, induction into the Rock `n` Roll Hall of Fame. Love them or hate them you simply can`t ignore them.

The burning question to kick off with however is do we really need yet another compilation from KISS bearing in mind the myriad of releases since Double Platinum in 1978? To be fair to 40, this is different to any previous compilation in that it features a song from every studio, live and previous compilation albums that they have released together with some previously unreleased live tracks and a demo from 1977.

It’s not Paul Stanley who’s been ‘almost borderline racist,’ but that’s just one of a few things the founding member of KISS would like to clear up.

Last week, Radio.com posted our interview with Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation CEO/President Joel Peresman. In it, we discussed this year’s ceremony, which included KISS frontman Paul Stanley‘s acceptance speech, including his criticism or the organization for being somewhat elitist. “The people, I believe we’re speaking to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and what they’re saying is, ‘We want more,’” Stanley said from the stage. “They want to be a part of the induction. They want to be a part of the nomination. They don’t want to be spoon-fed by a handful of people.”

Peresman told us, “That speech was the best advertisement for [pointing out that] what we did was right. He’s been almost borderline racist, not in that speech, but in other interviews talking about how hip-hop artists shouldn’t be inducted because they don’t play instruments. It’s like, ‘What are you, kidding?’”

Paul Stanley contacted us and asked to respond to Peresman’s quote earlier today (June 2). Soon, we were on the phone with him discussing his thoughts about the institution.

He rightfully felt that Peresman was attributing Gene Simmons‘s comments about hip-hop and disco artists not belonging in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame to him. (Simmons told us in March, “You’ve got Grandmaster Flash in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? Run-D.M.C. in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? You’re killing me! That doesn’t mean those aren’t good artists. But they don’t play guitar. They sample and they talk. Not even sing!”)

WAY TO GO NICHOLAS & BRIAN!
Father & Son KISS Fan's donate prices winnings to high school's Arts and Music Scholarship

Hey KISS!

My son, Nicholas, and I were recently invited to the evening news on NBC Cleveland WKYC to share our story about winning the KISS t-shirt contest! We talked about how we were fortunate enough to meet the band, get autographs and see KISS live front row center! We then shared with TV host, Jim Donovan, about donating the $1000 cash prize to our local high school's Arts and Music Scholarship. Nick and I decided that if we won, meeting KISS and seeing the show would be plenty for us. As it turns out, donating the cash prize was a pretty cool feeling as well!

Thanks for the AWESOME experience!
