Legendary rockers KISS made a big announcement on the plaza: They're looking to hire two veterans as roadies to work their 2014 Heroes Tour.

"People have to realize that the freedoms and the liberties that we enjoy here, we take for granted,'' lead singer Paul Stanley told Matt. “We owe them everything, so if we can hire a few of them, just to bring attention to the fact that we owe them everything.”

Rock bands KISS and Def Leppard today announced their commitment to hire two veterans as roadies for their 2014 summer tour as part of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation and Capital One’s Hiring 500,000 Heroes campaign. The bands made their hiring announcement live on the NBC Today Show in New York after deciding jointly to dedicate their upcoming summer tour to the military community. Following a nationwide search, two veterans will be chosen to support the bands’ production team on the 42-city North American tour.

This will be the second time KISS has carried out a nationwide search for a veteran roadie. Two years ago, Army veteran and longtime KISS fan Paul Jordan was chosen to join a summer tour after a review of 1,900 applications sent in from coast to coast. He went on to tour 44 cities with the band, helping with the set up and breakdown at each stop. Looking back after the tour closed, Jordan said, “I know now that life exists after military service. You just have to find something you’re passionate about and go get it. There is a world of opportunity out there.”

"It is our privilege to draw attention to the obligation we all have to the brave men and women who volunteer to risk their own lives to protect the liberties and freedom that we all take for granted. We should all jump at any opportunity to provide any assistance needed by our warriors. Heroes deserve jobs!" said Paul Stanley, lead vocalist/guitarist of KISS.

Stars Honored At Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Induction Ceremony At Barclays Center

Brooklyn’s Barclays Center rocked and rolled all night Thursday for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony.

KISS finally made the list after decades as one of the greatest live acts ever.

The band members took the stage for their induction without their signature makeup on, CBS 2′s Dave Carlin reported. They also did not perform on their big night.

Singer/guitarist Paul Stanley told WLNY TV 10/55 that the honor was long overdue.

“The validation has come over 40 years and a hundred million albums, and more platinum albums than I can count, so as far as I’m concerned the people have put us in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for decades,” Stanley said Wednesday on The Couch.

The organization decided to only induct the original band members — Stanley, Gene Simmons, Peter Criss and Ace Frehley. Stanley and Simmons were upset members who joined later were excluded.
