It's hard out there for a replacement drummer. Just ask Eric Singer, who's got a job most musicians would envy -- pounding the skins for Kiss -- but one that comes with a few occupational hazards, like having to hear the constant complaining of fans who wish the band's original lineup would get back together.
The rock band KISS is known for selling out stadiums and concerts, rocking the place, wild parties and wild women, loud guitars, makeup, explosions. You know, it's what we expect from them. KISS has done some country before...
My kids are pretty cool kids, JJ can fight off dragons (at least in his video games) and can finish a 70 page book in an evening. Sam can sing "Rock and Roll All Night" all the way through and pound out other KISS songs pretty well, but this kid is great!!
It isn't a song that often comes up when American fans are talking about Kiss' greatest hits, but the 1980 single 'Shandi' enjoyed a healthy chart life in Australia, and the band still plays it whenever they visit the continent on tour -- as they did Saturday night (March 16), in a performance that had greater meaning than usual.
Over the last four decades and counting, Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley of Kiss have elevated making money while making music into an art form -- and as evidenced by their latest business venture, their partnership shows no signs of slowing down.
Founding Kiss drummer Peter Criss has been admirably up front about his struggle with breast cancer, working steadily over the last several years to help educate men about the risks and warning signs associated with the disease, and his efforts have not gone unnoticed; in fact, Criss is the recipient of this year's Humanitarian of the Year Award from the American Cancer Society.
It seems Kiss and Motley Crue will be teaming up again as the two bands are set to headline this year's 'Rock Fest.' The four-day festival will be held from July 18 - 21 at the Venue in Cadott, Wis. and feature a variety of hard rocking veterans as well as newer acts.
Tommy Thayer didn't officially take over as lead guitarist of Kiss until 2002, but in a recent interview he admits he was prepared to hop on stage in a moment's notice as early as 1998. Due to recurring problems with Ace Frehley, Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons made Thayer the "heir apparent."
