WALL TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) — Looks like KISS won’t be taking part in the performance to mark their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in April.

At issue is which members of the 40-year-old group would get to take the stage at the jam that marks the induction ceremony.

The battle is over whether original members Ace Frehley and Peter Criss would join Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley — or whether the current lineup of Simmons, Stanley, Eric Singer and Tommy Thayer would play, instead.

In a message on its website, KISS says it won’t perform at all. It’s unclear who is unwilling to play with whom.

In its statement, the band said it has never refused to play with the two original members at the Rock Hall.

The news follows statements by Paul Stanley in which he said he was “unimpressed” by the induction plans.
