Thank you Derek and Gigi for putting the L.A. Kiss Expo together.  WOW! What an amazing time.  I had a blast.  Thank you to all the fans for coming.  You showed me so much love and respect.  It is always so wonderful to see how KISS has changed and touched so many lives.  Thank you for all of your memories you shared with me and how I have been with you in your lives. Thank you to all the other guests.  It was great to see old friends and make new ones.

Thank you John 5, Rob Zombie, Ginger, Steven Adler, and Jason Sutter for surprising me at the Q&A.  Thank you to all the other musicians for the video clips for the Q&A showing me such homage.  Very cool.  I am touched by your love and respect.

Glenn Frey

We lost one more iconic rock star and musical legend.  I love his music.  I am a big Eagles fan.  His music got me through many journeys of my life.  Whether the songs were up or down beat, the feelings were undeniably there.  Glenn Frey was top shelf. We lost another great artist.

God bless, see you up there,

Peter Criss

David Bowie

In the 70s when we were putting KISS together, I heard David's music and loved it.  The word on the street was that he was the new Messiah of Rock n' Roll.  The King of Glam, Ziggy Startdust, David Bowie.  He was performing at Radio City Music Hall.  It was an epiphany to me.  The hall went dark and down he came in a glowing ball from the top of the theater and hundreds of stars twirled around and around the theater. He had orange hair, a lightning bolt across his face, spandex, and platform boots.  I was addicted.  His musical influence to the world and his image inspired so many bands, including ours.  I love the man and his music. The song Fame, the words are forever.  We have lost on this earth one of the great musical geniuses.  See you in heaven, David.

Love and thank you,

Peter Criss

Our love and prayers go out to your family, friends, and fans around the world.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to everyone!
I wish you a joyous and safe 2016!

God Bless,

Peter Criss
