At least one former  KISS  member is issue-free about the band's impending induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Ex-KISS guitarist  Bruce Kulick  -- who spent 12 years with the group during their non-makeup period -- tells ABC News Radio that he thinks the induction is "a long time coming...[and] awesome."

KISS fans were disappointed to learn the band doesn't plan to perform at their Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony, reportedly because of difficulties determining which incarnation should take the stage.  Kulick gives those notoriously ardent fans credit for making the induction happen, noting they've been "petitioning...for years" for the band's inclusion.  He declares, quite simply, "the people have spoken."

Bruce Kulick parted ways with KISS when the band reunited with original members  Peter Criss  and  Ace Frehley  in 1996.  Even so, he's remained friends with  Gene Simmons  and  Paul Stanley , as well as current KISS drummer  Eric Singer  -- all of whom can be seen on Kulick's recent  wedding video , posted on his website. The guitarist married girlfriend  Lisa Lane  on January 4.

Bruce Kulick has been a member of Grand Funk Railroad since 2000.  The band is appearing at the House of Blue in Atlantic City, NJ on March 21. Kulick says more tour dates are forthcoming.
