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 MOTUC wants: Sagitar, Great Black Wizard, Fang-or, Skeletor's Skeleton Warriors, Odiphus, Illumina w/Sleetah, Lady Slither, Tuvar & Baddrah 2-pack
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.

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!!
THE 2015 ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME INDUCTEES
01. Bill Withers
02. Lou Reed
04. Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble
05. Nine Inch Nails
06. Green Day
Double Trouble has been added to Stevie Ray Vaughan on the ballot.

YAY, for the first time my vote count, I voted the inductee on the last post couple of months ago.
I'm glad they are all happy with the induction of 2016 class.
I want to echo what Ice Cube says about Eazy E
"I think [Eazy-E would] be real excited because he was always fighting for legitimacy."

Question, would Ben E Carlos will return as a drummer for Hall of Fame?
NOT QUITE MY TEMPO
Bun E. Carlos Confirms Cheap Trick Hall of Fame Reunion, Promises to ‘Make Nice’
Ritchie Blackmore won't attend the ceremony because the other original members of Deep Purple don't want him there and they said they won't perform if Blackmore shows up. Coverdale and Hughes are attending, collecting their trophies, giving their speeches, but won't perform.
Peter Cetera won't be reuniting with Chicago at the ceremony. His trophy will be mailed. Cetera and Chicago couldn't agree on which songs to perform and in which key. Cetera wanted to perform 25 Or 6 To 4 in the key of E, because of his old age he can't hit those high notes anymore. The band doesn't want to change the key for Cetera. Cetera also asked the Rock Hall producers to let him perform separately from Chicago at the ceremony, but the Rock Hall turned him down.

FINAL HoF DECISION!!!!
Regretfully, I’ve decided NOT to participate in the 2016 HoF induction ceremonies. I appreciate the award and I want to thank all of you who voted and finally made it happen.
Many of you will be disappointed and that’s understandable. Quite frankly, I’m disappointed as well. There comes a time when you need to make a decision based on what’s best for you without worrying about the consequences and this it that time.
Every idea or suggestion I offered about how it could work musically was either rejected or changed by the shows producers. Together with the fact that while I sent those same emails to the group, the only reply I ever received back from them was a very snarky “Take a chill pill dude!” Whoa! Really?
At this point in my life, I really don’t care to reintroduce the same negativity, misplaced egos, and petty jealousies I experienced years ago.
I’m very happy right where I am now, touring and playing my music with a band I love. You should all come and see us if you have the chance and please check my site for performance updates.
Peacefully moving on, Peter

26 MUSICIANS TOO ROCK TO SHOW UP FOR THEIR OWN ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME INDUCTION
February 8, 2016
I just sent this to the RnR hall of fame people. This is the the short high road nice version of what I really wanted to say. I’ll post that response at the appropriate time. Ciao,
Hello Alex and Joel!
Unfortunately, this scenario doesn’t work for me. I know we all did our best to make it happen, but I guess it’s just not meant to be.
Personally, I’m frustrated and tired of dealing with this and it’s time to move on. I have a life with two beautiful daughters and a solo career and its time to get back and give them all the full attention they deserve.
Thanks for all your help and consideration! Have a great show and please send any individual award I receive to the contact you have for me.
All the best, Peter Cetera
February 5, 2016
Hello everyone! I know you’re all waiting to hear what’s happening with the Hall of Fame. I know how frustrated you all are, but trust me, no one is more tired and frustrated than yours truly. I had a conference call with the musical department today and I’ve presented another song option. Right now it’s about a fiddy fiddy chance that we can hammer something out by the weekend. Frankly folks, Im done if this doesn’t work out. Here’s hoping this one works…Ill let you know either way ASAP…Ciao, Peter
Ps. As of today it’s now down to 25 per cent chance of happening.
January 6, 2016
Hello Everyone! I’ve just sent this mail to everyone involved. Hopefully it will answer all the questions concerning my participation in the Hall of Fame induction..Thanks
Hello Robert, Danny, Lee, Walter, and James. I’m sending this to you and Danny since yours are the only email addresses I have. Please forward this to everyone.
First off, congratulations all around on this long overdue honor. While our fans believe we should have been inducted years ago, they find it harder to believe that we haven’t even been nominated in all that time. Oh well, we are now!
All the credit goes to those who voted for us in overwhelming numbers during the recent poll. They alone deserve our thanks for finally making this happen.
I know we all look forward to speaking that evening and I’m sure we all wish that Terry was there to join us. That can’t happen unfortunately, but I have one thing that can.
As a finale, we can walk onstage together one last time as a group, I’ll strap on the bass, and we can do 25or6to4 in the key of E. I believe it would make for one fantastic Hall of Fame moment and satisfy those who have always wanted some sort of reunion.
Along with your current members, I would also like us to invite past members Laudir de Oliveira, Donnie Dacus, Kenny Cetera, Chris Pinnick, and Bill Champlin to join us up there as well on the song. They’ve all contributed to the legacy of the group and I think this would be a fitting way to honor them.
In the end, this should go a long way towards healing old wounds and showing solidarity on that night. At least I hope so!
See you all in Brooklyn, Peter
December 30, 2015
I’m getting ready to post my reply to the Hall of Fame about my participation for the show. It should happen within the first week of the new year. Tell your friends, relatives, Romans and of course countrymen. see ya, P
December 23, 2015
ATTENTION!! IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING HALL OF FAME!!!
Yes, that’s right. Tell all your friends, tell the press, tell radio, TV, newspapers, why you can even tell The Pres, Hillary, Trump everyone. I will make an important announcement on this site after the New Year that will shock the WOOORRRLLDD! Ok, maybe not the world but at least maybe parts of the USA and Canada!
Ill have a statement that will come from me and me only regarding my participation in The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Until then, have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and Ill speak to you shortly after New Year’s day with my earthshaking announcement regarding the Hall Of Fame! Ciao, Peter
October 24, 2015
Hold your horses all you folks that are so excited about this Hall of Fame voting. Let me remind you that whomever has this vendetta that has kept the original Chicago out of the HOF is still in charge. We should have been in years ago of course and that’s my point. They have put in so many who don’t belong that it’s an insult to think that they might have to be forced to at least finally put us in the nominee category. Also, this fan vote only counts for ONE vote out of the hundreds of voters out there so there’s still a chance for them to finagle their way out of “letting” us in. I also heard something about Chicago fans cheating by voting early and voting often! Keep it up because you never know what might happen!
