Slipknot - Corey Taylor: 'Kiss Should Perform At Hall Of Fame For The Fans'

Slipknot star Corey Taylor has taken aim at his Kiss heroes for allowing past dramas to upset one of the band's biggest nights at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony.

Like many Kiss fans, Taylor was looking forward to seeing the band perform at the prestigious event next month (Apr14), but founders Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons have decided not to play live after learning museum bosses had no plans to honour their current bandmates.

Instead, only ex-band members Peter Criss and Ace Frehley will be inducted alongside the longtime Kiss stars, and Stanley and Simmons have refused to perform with them.

Taylor has now weighed in on the controversy, insisting the bandmates should put the fans first.

He says, "It’s like, 'Can you guys just put aside your petty issues and realise that without one another you wouldn’t have been able to do this? Can you just set stuff aside and do one show for the fans as the original line-up again? And then you never have to see each other again!

"That’s just me laying it straight. I might not ever get a kind word from anybody in that band anymore, but I think it’s petty and I think it’s ridiculous! Figure it out! Show respect, because sometimes it’s not about you, it’s about the fans."
