The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame just might bring back the original KISS, if only for one night. 

The band is part of the Rock Hall's Class of 2014, and estranged bandmates Gene Simmons and Ace Frehley are both expressing a willingness to perform together at the induction ceremony. 

Simmons tells "Rolling Stone" that Frehley and original KISS drummer Peter Criss were "equally important in the formation of the band."  He explains that Frehley and Criss "gave birth" to KISS with him and Paul Stanley, and no longer being in the group doesn't minimize or eliminate their importance. 

In a separate interview, Frehley tells "Rolling Stone" that he's "absolutely" open to reuniting with Gene, Paul, and Peter at their Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction, and that it "sounds like a great idea."  He adds that he recently shared the stage with Peter, which was the first time they'd performed together in 12 years, and it was "a lot of fun." 

KISS will be formally added to the Rock Hall at the annual induction ceremony next spring.  The event will take place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on April 10th.
