Congratulations to Epiphone's Tommy Thayer and the members of KISS who will officially enter the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame April 10 at Brooklyn's Barclays Center. And as an added bonus, the general public will be able to attend the ceremony and concert. Tickets go on sale next month. Also, a big congrats to Epiphone fan Dave Grohl
and the other surviving members of Nirvana who are getting in on their first year of eligibility.
"That's really no surprise to me," said Rock and Roll Hall of Fame President and CEO Joel Peresman. "We're just getting into the creative of the show, so I don't know what's going to happen with that performance. They have to figure it out."
Get in the mood for the big night early and pick up the Epiphone Signature Ltd. Ed. Tommy Thayer "Spaceman" Les Paul
. KISS' induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is especially great for Tommy Thayer who knew from childhood that his future was on stage with a guitar in-hand. Thayer has been part of the KISS family since 1985 first as a songwriter and guitarist--working behind-the-scenes at rehearsals and on studio demos--before joining KISS on stage as the legendary "Spaceman." Last year, Thayer joined the Epiphone family with his Signature "Spaceman" Les Paul Standard featuring Gibson 498T™ Humbuckers, Grover™ Deluxe Vintage tuners, and a custom silver hard case with a signed certificate of authenticity. And like Tommy himself, this Les Paul Standard “Spaceman” is one-of-a-kind, with a limited run of only 1,000. See you in Brooklyn next spring! Congratulations to Tommy and Dave from all of us at Epiphone!
