KISS will FINALLY be inducted into Hall of Fame

by Rachel Baker on December 17, 2013

KISS fans should be thrilled – 14 years after eligibility, the band is finally being inducted into the Hall of Fame. Nirvana will also be inducted after being accepted in its first year of eligibility.

Nirvana will be inducted, as was widely expected. But so will Kiss, the costumed and made-up stars of hard rock that been snubbed by the Hall of Fame for years.

The other stars being inducted in the 29th annual ceremony, to be held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on April 10, are Hall and Oates, Linda Ronstadt, Cat Stevens and Peter Gabriel, who is being recognized as a solo performer but has already been inducted as part of the band Genesis.

…Also this year, Brian Epstein, the Beatles’ manager, and Andrew Loog Oldham, who worked with the Rolling Stones, will receive Ahmet Ertegun Awards, for nonperformers. And Bruce Springsteen’s E Street band will receive the Award for Musical Excellence, formerly known as the sidemen prize.
