Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction at Barclays - My9 New Jersey

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction at Barclays

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Brooklyn was jumping Thursday night to the sounds of the music industry's biggest rock stars.

Nirvana, KISS, Peter Gabriel, Cat Stevens, Linda Ronstadt, Hall and Oates, the E Street Band, Andrew Loog Oldham and Brian Epstein became the latest inductees to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame during an induction ceremony at Barclays Center.

The event came with some controversy as only the original members of KISS were inducted and not longtime band members Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer.

Paul Stanley of KISS, who recently released a book about the anti-Semitism he says he endured from original band mates Ace Frehley and Peter Criss, told FOX 5 News morning program 'Good Day New York' that the governing body of the organization is really just "an old boys club."

"They begrudgingly took us in. It's a few people making decisions of who they want in," said Stanley.

Many of the inductees took the stage to perform as well.

The Award of Musical Excellence was presented to The E Street Band.

The 29th induction ceremony took place at 7 p.m. 

It will also air on HBO on May 31 at 9 p.m.
