The guitarist and co-lead vocalist of the rock band KISS, Paul Stanley, who is also known as The Starchild of the rock community, took to his Twitter account to react to Iron Maiden‘s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction and made respectful comments for them.
As some of those might know, although they spent over 46 years in music and received countless successes, Iron Maiden is a band that was not inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Through April 30, rock fans choose the next inductions using Rock Hall’s website or in person at the museum. As of today, April 22, Iron Maiden has received an almost 355k fan vote.
It was reported by Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame that the Iron Maiden‘s Hall of Fame lineup will be included the singer Bruce Dickinson, bassist Steve Harris, drummer Nicko McBrain, and the guitarists Dave Murray, Janick Gers, and Adrian Smith. In addition to them, the lineup also includes former members, singer Paul Di’Anno, drummer Clive Burr, and guitarist Dennis Stratton.
Paul Stanley Says It Is Insanity That Iron Maiden Is Not In Rock Hall
However, in a recent social media appearance, KISS guitarist has broken his silence about Iron Maiden’s induction into Rock Hall and said it is insanity that they were not in Rock Hall.
“Regardless of whether it matters to them, Maiden not being in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is INSANITY,” says Stanley. “Regardless of who is writing in or not, the Committee must induct them. They have helped spawn an entire genre of music. What else do you need to do?? @IronMaiden.”

Fans Agree With Paul
Under his tweet, people have shared their thoughts about the issue. They’ve stated that Paul says right and supported him because of his words.
While a fan named Eric says, “Couldn’t agree anymore Paul. It’s insane that bands Maiden, Ozzy, Motley, Motörhead, Dio, and Thin Lizzy are not in the Hall of Fame, another fan June answered him and said: “I totally agree with all of these and for me Thin Lizzy especially.”
Later, a fan Carou said: “You’re absolutely right, it’s ridiculous I lost my respect for the hall of fame cause they’re incredibly irresponsible for leaving such important bands behind.”
