Yeah KISS. The first band I got into also. I had it all, KISS cards, belt buckle, lunch box, shirt, and even was allowed to stay up late when I was a kid to watch that hideous KISS meets the phantom movie. Had all the KISS vinyl up to and including Dynasty. But they've been an embarrassment for so long. I literally wouldn't walk across the street to see them live now.

Post 8, if that person makes you laugh you got some serious issues, you must be expendable in your family tree.
what's funny about this is Paul I believed came out and stated" its too early to tell who will play with us at the RRHOF show".
Instant insanity, ace and peter who else?
It's almost as insane as buying an arena football league team, naming it after your band, branding them the los Angeles kiss yet playing the team's home games in Anaheim.

after all those of being nominated and not inducted, I still can't think of a reason why Kiss is happy to be with the hall of fame.

I certainly wouldn't be happy and wouldn't show up at the induction ceremony.
