While interacting with fans on Twitter over the weekend, KISS singer/guitarist Paul Stanley made some comments about whether or not the band’s full lineup would reunite for a performance at their upcoming Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction…and the chances aren’t looking great.
In response to a tweet asking if Paul was planning on “wearing makeup” on stage at the Rock Hall induction with Ace Frehley and Peter Criss, the rocker responded “No way.”
Then, after another fan asked directly if the original KISS lineup would play together, Stanley stated, “Seems unlikely.”
Stanley’s tweets come after a series of more positive comments from his current and former bandmates, who have seemingly been leaning toward a reunion performance.
When Rolling Stone asked Gene Simmons if he would be willing to play with Frehley and Criss at the induction ceremony, he replied, “Sure, why not?”
Additionally, in a recent radio interview, Frehley also seemed open to the idea when he revealed, “I know for a fact that the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame wants the four of us to perform in makeup. That's what they want, and we'll see how it plays out. I'm hoping that everybody's just gonna do the right thing and celebrate the four original members who started it all."
KISS, along with Nirvana, Peter Gabriel, Daryl Hall and John Oates, Cat Stevens and Linda Ronstadt will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this spring.
