Best Surprise Kiss Fan: Stevie Nicks
While Stevie Nicks was thrilled to induct Linda Ronstadt ("She was a rock star!," she said), she was disappointed Kiss couldn't put their differences aside the way Fleetwood Mac did. "They should have played," she told us. "When we were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Lindsey's a little bit like, 'OK, whatever.' But let me tell you, when we walked up there and we were inducted, we stood up there and it is a moment like no other. Then you get to go and strum on your guitar and get your microphone and sing two or three songs to that audience on your day. It is their loss that they didn't play, because the Kiss Army is out there, right now screaming for them."
Nicks continued, "And they should have played for them, no matter how they felt about it. You know, Fleetwood Mac had about 500 people in it, too. They weren't all there. All 900 guitar players didn't get inducted. They weren't there. So the thing is, you know what? It's your moment. Take it. Go out there and play. It's the most important part. I like Kiss very much, and I think that they have done amazing. They're an amazing band."
