Gene Simmons: ‘Original Kiss Will Not Reunite For Hall of Fame’
I still have a shirt from about fifteen years ago when Kiss announced their last tour.The Kiss “Farewell Tour.” I went and rocked with the best of them. Except they didn’t retire or quit touring. Two key members of the original band decided to quit. Numerous times. As one of the nominees into the recent list of Rock N Roll Hall of Fame inductees. Kiss has been one of the bands that has written the script for rock and roll. Now Gene Simmons has made it quite clear there will be no “Reunion” at the Rock and Roll Hall of fame show. When asked about a reunion Simmons said: “No, how many chances in life do you get? When you stick your hand in the fire, you get burned the first time. Fire and nature doesn’t care if you’re a good guy or a bad guy. Both of these guys had three chances to be in the band and three times they fucked it up. They were every bit as important as we were at the formation of the band and they would have been the ruin of the band had they continued in it.” http://www.classicrockmagazine.com/news/gene-simmons-original-kiss-will-not-reunite-for-hall-of-fame/
So I guess I’ll take my shirt and wash it one more time. And the rest is rock and roll history.
