Working with Kiss

One of his most important challenges as a drummer was the legacy he is allowed to continue in Kiss, legendary band of North America founded in 1972, which had had two extraordinary drummers, Peter Criss, who for 1980 should leave the band to Start a solo career. The immediate replacement is Eric Carr (Paul Charles Caravello), son of Italian immigrants born on July 12, 1950 in New York. Eric Carr is considered by many of Kiss’s fans to be the most charismatic drummer of all time in the band, (due to his make-up similar to the spots of a fox); manages to gain the attention of the fans and replace the image “The Catman” by Peter Criss. For his part, Eric Singer is considered to be the most technical and skilful drummer of the band; achieving greater cleanliness in the songs and, above all, in the early nineties; a more “heavy” touch to the music of the band.

In the tour of the album Hot In The Shade, Eric Carr begins to suffer from Pericarditis, and unfortunately he dies on November 24, 1991, curiously the same day as Freddie Mercury. A year later Kiss reappears with Eric Singer, who broke the band’s scheme by his features, yellow hair, blue eyes a marked difference with Peter, Eric and the rest of the band, which were characterized by hair and eyes dark colors.

This new line-up of Kiss allows him to renew his style and captivate in concert, ending this era of rebirth of Metal, Kiss decides to meet with his former members, Ace Frehley and Peter Criss, this has its origins in a convention of Kiss in 1996 with acoustic guitars, where Peter Criss contacts Gene Simmons and says he will attend. Eric Singer proposes to present Peter Criss to the public and make him participate in the concert.
