Never Forget 9/11

Happy Independence Day!

Buyer Beware!

Backstage Auctions is currently auctioning off a 14-inch Mylar Yamaha tom:

1295: KISS Fully Signed Farewell Tour Drum Head with 14" Tom Drum

This drum was originally listed on the site as having been played by Peter Criss as a practice drum during the Farewell Tour, which is not true.  The listing has since been updated, but we want to make very clear that Peter Criss never owned this drum, nor did he ever play this drum, nor did he ever give this drum to a crew member.  Peter is a DW drummer, and this is a Yamaha drum.  This drum was not attached to KISS or Peter Criss in any way on the tour.

Thank you to all the fans who are willing to spend their hard earned money to have a piece of Peter's history in their collections.  We will do anything we can to make sure that you get what you pay for and do not get ripped off!!

Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there!

God bless,

Peter Criss

BB King

We are very sad to hear about the passing of BB King.  If ever there was a king of the blues, it was BB King.  He has had unequaled influence on music and musicians.  His music has inspired its many listeners, and his playing has inspired and molded many careers.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family, friends, and his many many fans around the world.

God bless,

Peter Criss

KISS Army is KISS Family

Last year I attended Mad Monster in Charlotte, NC.  One of the fans that came out to visit with me was a man named Rick Adkins.  He is a KISS fan, but more importantly, he is a father. He told me about his son, Trevor, who was in the Army, and was killed in Iraq.  I was heartbroken to hear his story.  Rick gave me one of Trevor's Purple Heart lapel pins to remember him by.  It blew my mind that he gave this to me.  I am truly honored.

I recently returned to Mad Monster in Charlotte...
