(Classic Rock) KISS drummer Eric Singer has had enough of fans voicing negative opinions about the band's current incarnation. He insists the present lineup, featuring himself and guitarist Tommy Thayer alongside founders Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons, cares as much about their legacy as the classic outfit which included Peter Criss and Ace Frehley.
Singer is enjoying his third stint with Kiss since first joining in 1991, and has appeared on the band's acclaimed recent albums Sonic Boom and Monster.
He tells Radio Nova: "The people that want to complain about 'I don't like this,' or 'I don't like that,' 'They should play this song,' or 'I only want the original band
' The bottom line is: this is how Kiss exists right now, in 2013. Be glad there's some version of Kiss and that we're out there touring.
"We have just as much passion and case just as much as the band ever did or ever could. That's what counts. If we didn't, we wouldn't be here. I mean, Gene and Paul don't need the money; they don't need to do this. They do it because they love doing it." more on this story
