The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony happens tonight, and there's at least one KISS guy who isn't holding a grudge: former guitarist Bruce Kulick . Even though he was with the band for 12 years, Kulick is one of the several non-original KISS members who the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame chose not to induct along with founding members Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, Ace Frehley and Peter Criss .
Is he bitter? Just the opposite, it seems. Kulick -- who was in the band from 1984 to 1996, through the sale of millions of albums and concert tickets -- tells ABC News Radio, "I'm just thrilled that I was included in Gene and Paul's battle for [the Hall of Fame] to represent 40 years and not to ignore that. They both reached out to me after the announcement was made, to tell me that I've been a big part of their continued success, and they haven't forgotten those 12 years and all the album sales and tours that we did very well. So for me, I feel like I'm being inducted even though I'm not." (AUDIO IS PHONE QUALITY)
