Like many others, KISS’s Paul Stanley has strong opinions about the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Talking with USA Today, Stanley said that Iron Maiden deserve to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
“Maiden belongs in there,” said Stanley. “If it wasn’t for Maiden, there wouldn’t be an abundance of bands who sound Maiden-like. Isn’t that what gets you in the Hall of Fame?”
Stanley also said, “The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has had such a stigma attached to it, and rightfully so. It’s been so much of an old men’s club where they pick their favorites in a backroom.”
