Gene Simmons’ legendary band KISS is being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Simmons, who was interviewed by Radio.com, downplays the honor a bit, saying it’s a decision made by a small group of people. Maybe some of Simmons’ qualms come from the Hall of Fame’s decision to include rappers with the rockers?
He spills his opinions to Radio.com saying, “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!”
