KISS frontman Paul Stanley has disappointed fans after telling them it is "unlikely" the original members of the rock group will reunite for a performance when they are inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this year.

The colourful rockers will join Peter Gabriel, Cat Stevens and Nirvana, among others, in the museum's class of 2014, in April.

Stanley said the rock group would be performing at the ceremony, but when asked by a fan if there would be an original line-up reunion with Ace Frehley and Peter Criss, he replied, "unlikely".

KISS TO BE INDUCTED INTO ROCK'N'ROLL HALL OF FAME

Frehley has reportedly said that he is keen to perform and replace current KISS star Tommy Thayer onstage.

"You can't have me and Tommy both in make-up," Frehley said.

"I don't have a problem with Tommy and (current drummer) Eric (Singer) being there out of make-up, if I'm in make-up, because they're a big part of KISS today. (But) they had nothing to do with the beginning of KISS, or the designs or the costumes or the make-up ... This is about the celebration of KISS and how it all began and started, and it should be honouring the four original members." AAP
