As far as KISS are concerned, their induction comes with little surprise from Peresman too. Despite being eligible for induction for the past 15 years, they have been overlooked until now, but the Hall of Fame's oversight hasn't gone unnoticed by the public. Peresman continued, "The Kiss Army has descended on Cleveland in recent years and we've gotten thousands of letters. They also did extremely well in the public vote."

The induction of KISS has been a long time coming

Linda Ronstadt's induction comes following her announcement that she is battling Parkinson's Disease, with her illness sadly preventing her from singing or travelling to the event. She told RS, "It's most likely I that I won't be able to make it to New York in April. Travel is very difficult for me."

For Peter Gabriel, this is his second induction to the Hall of Fame, his first coming in 2010 when he was honoured as a member of Genesis. At the time of his initial induction Gabriel was touring in the UK and was unable to attend the ceremony, however he has promised this time that he will be at the event and will probably be performing too.

"It was a bit of a surprise to me," Daryl Hall told Rolling Stone upon the announcement of their success. "I've always been sort of on the other side of the fence with the old guard and the powers that be...This whole new generation of people are looking at me and John in a different way."

Cat Stevens, now known as Yusuf Islam, has yet to comment on his induction, but it is hoped that he will attend and possibly perform at the event in April.
