Kiss, the rock and roll to-be-inducted music group, will not be performing when the band is inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in April, according to a Yahoo! News report on Sunday.

Kiss, a band which has been around for 40 years, has an internal problem regarding any performance at the otherwise-festive occasion for the band. As many bands have had in the past, Kiss has had a change in band personnel through the years and it has become a battle as to which band lineup should perform – the original players or the current players. Therefore, the band says that none of them will be playing on April 10 at the ceremony in New York City.

The concern is whether the original members – Ace Frehley and Peter Criss - should join Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley, or whether the current members – Eric Singer and Tommy Thayer – should play at the ceremony.

Kiss’ web site called it “an emotional situation where there is no way to please everyone.” Therefore, the band will not perform at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony.

A possible solution is for all six band members to take the stage - and just "Rock On!"
