IMO KISS' induction should have included all members past & present (at least the living). The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame only inducted the original 4 - Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, Peter Criss and Ace Frehley. But Gene & Paul insisted that current drummer, Eric Singer (20 year member), and current guitarist, Tommy Thayer (10 year member), sit at their table along with former guitarist, Bruce Kulick (12 year member) making the event attended by all of the living members (past & present) except the elusive Vinnie Vincent (3 year member). Former drummer, Eric Carr (11 year member), died in 1991 while still a member of KISS and former guitarist, Mark St. John (<1 year member), died in 2007.

Top Ten MOTUC wants: Sagitar, Great Black Wizard, Fang-or, Dragstor, Peekablue, Skeletor's Skeleton Warriors, Despara, Evil Seed (all era) w/Odiphus, Illumina w/Sleetah, Lady Slither
Eric Carr and Bruce definitely should have been inducted. Both of them actually contributed more to the band than Ace and Peter ever did.
I can't believe Gene even posed for pictures with Ace. I'm surprised they didn't need security to keep them from attacking each other.
The 29th annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony airs on May 31st on HBO

British singer Cat Stevens is now known as Yusuf Islam. He converted to Islam in the 70's after he almost drowned while swimming at California's famed Malibu beach. As Yusuf Islam, Stevens no longer sings today but preaches at mosques throughout the world. Father to Son and Morning Has Broken are among his greatest hits of all time.

Try to reach inside of me, try to drain my energy
Let me show you just what I'm made of
Simple curiosity trying to take a bite of me
Let me show you just what I'm made of now...
I thought 'The Wings' - Paul McCartney second band - was inducted in the R&R Hall of Fame in the 90's ????
If I remember, Eric Clapton was 3 times inducted: himself, 'Yardbirds' and 'Cream'....
Cat Stevens performed at the 2014 Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame induction ceremony. Wings have not been inducted yet. They might get inducted in the future as an addendum to Paul McCartney's induction. Same goes for Double Trouble, the Wailers, the Silver Bullet Band, The Mothers of Invention, and the Revolution among others. The E Street Band was inducted this year. Springsteen was inducted in 1999. The Blue Caps, The Comets, The Crickets, The Famous Flames, The Midnighters and The Miracles were all inducted in 2012 as addendums.
I'm sticking with my final prediction and I hate it, except for Withers!!
