Paul Stanley's Rock Hall Feud Gets Personal
Paul Stanley's feud against the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has now turned personal against the Hall's co-founder, Rolling Stone owner and publisher, Jann Wenner. Most Kiss fans were expecting that with the honorable way all four co-founding members acted towards each other last Thursday night (April 10th) during the band's induction, that the controversy between Stanley -- who rejected the Hall's insistence that only the four original co-founders be inducted -- was put to rest.
 
During his brief acceptance speech, Stanley couldn't help but take a few shots at the Hall and its voting committee, who had passed over inducting Kiss every year since 2000, saying, "Here we are, basically inducted for the same things that we were kept out for. The people are speaking to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and what they’re saying is that they want more. They don’t want to be spoon-fed with a handful of choices. The people buy tickets, the people buy albums, the people who nominate do not. Let’s not forget that these are the people who make it all possible. We just benefit from it. I am here tonight because of the people who inspired me, but I am also here because of the people I inspired. So God bless you all. It’s a wonderful night."
 
Vintage Vinyl News reposted Stanley's two tweets from, Saturday (April 12th) that took a decidedly unforgiving and personal twist, first saying: "Our treatment at the RRHOF confirmed my worst suspicions. Wenner and the rest are spineless weasels."
 
He went on to post: "Jann Wenner & his RRHOF made sure to treat us as uninvited guests. No passes. No schedule and on. We were great and he remains a small man."
