Gene Simmons Lashes Out

Kiss co-founder Gene Simmons recently spoke out about his band's exclusion from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame during a speech to concert promoters in New York:
"A lot of those guys on the [Nominating Committee] board can go and get my sandwich when I want, and I mean that in the nicest way," he said. "There are disco bands, rap bands, Yiddish folk song bands in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, but not Kiss. I believe we have more gold records in America than any other group, but it's OK."

Simmons is probably just trying to be outrageous for his reality show, which was filming his speech, but he has a right to be bitter towards certain members of the Nominating Committee who have effectively black-balled them from the process.
