Anyone who actually thought for a second the original lineup of Kiss was going to put past differences aside and perform together on stage for the upcoming Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction was probably huffing gas at the time.

Only a gas huffer would even dare hope for such a shitshow.

Instead, the current lineup will likely perform this April at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.

Ace Frehley broke the news to Eddie Trunk last night.

“I don’t think Kiss fans are gonna be too excited and happy about the news, ’cause at this juncture, Paul [Stanley] and Gene [Simmons] have decided to perform with [current members] Tommy [Thayer] and Eric [Singer], and it looks like the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame is going along with it.”

So that’s that.

    No surprise there. The current line up is Kiss right now. Why would anyone expect the original line up to play?
