Dr. Fred B. - February 2020

Hello Peter.

I'm 57 years old and have been a fan of yours since I was 15. I saw my very first KISS concert at the Providence Civic Center in 1978. You quickly became an inspiration and my idol and I even dressed up as the cat man (boy lol) one Halloween. You played the drums with such fluidity, confidence and ease. And your kit was incredible! Always wanted to play on a kit like that. I've always hoped to meet you.

As a boy, I was always fascinated by drums. I started off with the rubber practice pad and got my first set when I was around 12. I played constantly until I joined the Navy in 1981. I served for 9 years. My career was cut short by a knee injury. I got away from playing while in the service for obvious reasons lol. I got another set shortly after I was discharged. Played again for a few years, then went to college and became a sports and rehab chiropractor, practicing almost 20 years now. I had every single KISS album and could play just about every song. I loved your solo in 100,000 years and God of Thunder from Alive 2.

I just bought this Pearl set and it feels great to play again. I'm planning on adding to the kit.

I just want to thank you. You remain my idol and I'm hoping to pick up where I left off and keep going! The drums have been a source of peace, energy and excitement for me and lets face it, its an excellent workout!

I hope you are well and if ever in the need for a good chiropractor, let me know.

I grew up, I’m 55, in Southern Indiana and was forbidden to listen to any “devil” music as a child. I was always intrigued by KISS and as I got older really appreciated your music. I never attended a rock concert, but when KISS announced last year they were doing a final tour I made up my mind to go if you and Ace were in it. Since you were not I didn’t attend. From a fan’s perspective if there is anyway you could join them for either a full show or a few sets per concert I’d certainly enjoy that.

Mr Criss,

Just wanted to thank you for the amazing impact you had on my life. I was just a shy little boy when I first saw you in KISS. I went on to be a rock drummer, a big cat keeper in a zoo and an actor! In some strange way, you helped a boy you didn’t even know . I found the combination of drums ,cats and theatrics and somehow met the perfect woman during the course of it all!!!! It’s been a great adventure!

Thank you, Catman!

Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed your book—I quote from it in one of my forthcoming. You’re the best.

Your fan,

Hi Mr. Peter Criss,

I recently bought and finished reading your autobiography Makeup to Breakup. I’ve read the other members books and I’ve gotta say yours is my favorite. Reading it felt like I was listening to you tell all the stories in person, and I’ve always loved your voice the best out of all the members its the most unique and heartfelt and soulful, and of course your drumming really is the groove that had the early songs sound so great, I love the way your drumming always had a swing feel to it and the ghost notes on the snares and funky hi hat rhythms spiced things up, Im 18 years old so I never really had the chance to see the only real KISS with Peter Criss and Ace Frehley and it bums me out a bit, but listening to the old records always brings me to life, ya know people say Eric singers a great drummer but I honestly always felt his drumming was over simplified and boring, on the other had you always drummed with soul and spice and I love it, anyway reading your book was great felt like the closest thing I could get to seeing Kiss in the seventies.

Thanks for all the great music Mr Peter Criss the Catman!
