KISS Drummer Eric Singer Slams Copycat Accusations
He does wear the Catman makeup mask that Criss used - but he insists that's where the similarities end. Singer tells Michael Cavacini: "I've heard people say that I was told to sing, play and act like Peter Criss. That's completely ridiculous. I've never once been told to do that. Never. Look at any of the shows I've done. I don't play anything like Peter Criss."
A section of Kiss fans will always long for the return of Criss and co-founding guitarist Ace Frehley. But Singer believes Kiss are as good a live act as they've ever been with him and guitarist Tommy Thayer on board - and that should be enough to appease followers.
He says: "If a band can't continue on because somebody quits, can't play any more, whatever the reason is, that shouldn't prevent the remaining members from continuing, if that's what they want to do." Read more here.
