Paul Stanley: 'Our Treatment at Rock Hall Confirmed My Worst Suspicions, They Are Spineless Weasels'

The KISS rant at Rock Hall is on the way.

Ultimate Guitar

Their induction may have gone off without a hitch, but the drama surrounding KISS and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame continues.

In a tweet posted on April 13th, KISS frontman Paul Stanley re-iterated his distain for the institution, as well as Rolling Stone, the magazine edited by Rock Hall co-founder Jann Wenner:

@RollingStone Our treatment at the RRHOF confirmed my worst suspicions. Wenner and the rest are spineless weasels.

When prompted for more details, Stanley responded:

@JannWenner & 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.

The drama continues...

    The first tweet is from April 13th. Then, it says: "When prompted for more details, Stanley responded:" and the second tweet is from April 12th. UG journalism at its best ladies and gentlemen.

    At least Wenner is slightly more photogenic, and doesn't look like he has a golf club uncomfortably lodged up his arse.
    Jesus Christ, what a whiny bitch. You didn't get guest passes? You didn't get a schedule? You didn't get your ****ing continental breakfast and gold-plated toilet paper? Welcome to the real ****ing world, Paul Stanley.
    Uh, that's Official KISS continental breakfast and Official KISS branded toilet paper bud. You can own both for $14.99 and $8.99. "Rock n Roll," ladies and gentlemen. If these guys got in, who should say we should stop Donald Trump from getting in next?
    They're still bitching about the Hall of Fame?
    They shouldn't be in the hall of fame.
    You should stop listening to music today.
    A) How would someone learn more about music if they stopped listening? That would only make them more ignorant. B) KISS are overrated anyways. They were big at the time for their stage show and their showmanship inspired a lot of metalheads and rockers (who are much better musicians), but they are the pop stars of rock and roll. They are essentially Nickelback in costumes.
    Oh god, Paul Stanley can you shut the F*CK up?! You've done the bickering with your ex-band mates, you've bitched and moaned about even being nominated, you've gone and taken the award anyway because you're a hypocritical piece of sh*t, can you just leave it now? Please?
    And when one thinks it is finally over with all these Kiss/RRHoF related news...
    Not gonna lie, all of this Hall of Fame bashing from everybody is getting so incredibly old... Sure, some artists will be snuffed (for a while) while others "less deserving (music is subjective)" get in. Whatever. It's still a prestigious award and these artists should be grateful that these people are going out of their way to honor the legacy of their band. Accept the award and shut the **** up already. Nirvana managed to spin it into a good time...
    Paul and Gene are absolute twats. It's funny seeing them making complete asses of themselves. Lol.
    If no one paid attention to this old mongoloid then he'd eventually shut his mouth
    Just wanna ask something. Paul Stanley recently said "I believe that the spirit of rock and roll is that you follow your own path regardless of your critics and regardless of your peers." Does Paul now consider that the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Jann Wenner in particular should carry on following their own path, regardless of what their critics, such as Paul Stanley, might say?
    wish Paul and Gene would follow a path right off a ****ing cliff...pair of wankers who bide their time at the hair club for men and make ****ed records...go away small man and wallow in your cash.
