In a new interview with Christian Science Monitor, Paul Stanley has once again spoken about his experiences of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Still reeling from KISS's treatment at the event, Stanley went on to describe the organizers as prejudiced and arrogant:
"It was everything I expected it to be. It's a very elitist club, it dupes the public into believing that there is some credibility to it and that somehow the public has a voice in it, which they don't. It's a small group of elitist publishers and writers and record company people who reflect their own prejudices and preferences.
"So it was exactly as I expected and from the very beginning of their announcing our induction, they were arrogant and treated us dismissively."
Stanley also explained that the only reason he attended the event was because fans wanted him to:
"I went because there are many fans who see it as validation and vindication of their championing us and I wouldn't miss it for the world because it was a celebration of them and for them."
