Multiple KISS lineups to attend Rock Hall Induction

Only the four KISS founders are being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, but they won't be the only group  members at the ceremony. 

Gene Simmons tells Rolling Stone he and Paul Stanley have asked their current bandmates Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer to join them at the event.  He adds that they've also extended an invitation to former KISS guitarist Bruce Kulick, who says it "means the world" to be included.  The only surviving ex-band member unaccounted for is Vinnie Vincent, whom Kulick calls "the Howard Hughes of KISS."  Eric Carr passed away in 1991, while Mark St. John died in 2007. 

Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello will induct the original KISS members, which include Simmons and Stanley along with Ace Frehley and Peter Criss.  The group is not expected to perform at the event. 

The 2014 Rock Hall induction ceremony will take place in Brooklyn, New York on April 10th.
