KISS SCRAPS PLANS TO PERFORM AT ROCK HALL INDUCTION CEREMONY

After months of conjecture concerning whether or not (and with which members) Kiss would perform at their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on April 10 in Brooklyn, the band issued a statement on Sunday saying won’t be playing at all. The statement on the band’s website reads: “This is understandably an emotional situation where there is no way to please everyone. To bring this to a quick end, we have decided not to play any line-up and we will focus our attention on celebrating our induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.” On Friday, original guitarist Ace Frehley reiterated in a radio interview, “I’m not gonna get on the stage with [current guitarist] Tommy [Thayer] wearing my makeup. That’s absurd.” Meanwhile, original drummer Peter Criss wrote on his website that he and Frehley “have been denied a performance with Gene [Simmons] and Paul [Stanley] for our Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction,” labeling the decision “disgraceful.” For their part, Simmons and Stanley claim “we have never refused to play with Ace and Peter.”

Rock icon David Bowie won the coveted British Male Solo Artist trophy at the Brit Awards on Wednesday in London, but unable to attend, the “Fashion” singer sent a surrogate icon to accept on his behalf – supermodel Kate Moss. Wearing a Ziggy Stardust-inspired outfit, Moss mouthed words Bowie had asked to say, including, “Kate comes from Venus and I from Mars, so that’s nice. I’m completely delighted to have a Brit for being the best male, but I am, aren’t I Kate? I think it’s a great way to end the day.”
