KISS Band Member Says Hip Hop Does NOT Belong in Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame
The KISS band is now being honored by the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Gene Simmons, KISS band member, was pretty upset Hip Hop made it in the Hip Hop Hall Of Fame before they did. He calls out Grand Master Flash and RUN DMC for making their way in to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Read what he said below!
A long time ago it was diluted. It’s really back room politics, like
Boss Tweed. A few people decide what’s in and what’s not. And the
masses just scratch their heads. You’ve got Grandmaster Flash in the
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? Run-D.M.C. in the Rock and Roll Hall of
Fame? You’re killing me! That doesn’t mean those aren’t good artists.
But they don’t play guitar. They sample and they talk. Not even sing!
