Eric Singer On KISS Fans' Emotional Connection To Various Lineups


(Classic Rock) KISS drummer Eric Singer has suggested some fans get too emotionally attached to the band's previous lineups. The sticksman has had three stints with the veteran outfit since the death of Eric Carr in 1991. Singer then came on board permanently to replace Peter Criss in 2003 at the end of the 'Farewell' reunion tour.

Singer tells CRR: "I have many friends that will say their version of Kiss was Animalize or Hot In The Shade or it was another era. How can they say that? But I respect what they are saying.

"For that person, that is when they discovered Kiss and that was the time of their life when it really affected them and they had a connection to them. Everybody has a different timeline of the band when it emotionally connected with them.

He continues: "I'm not saying this to take away from Kiss at all, but Kiss was really about the show. What attracted you to them was that image and that show. If Kiss just stood on stage and played songs without the show then I doubt they would have held your attention.

"I understand that you can't try to take the emotional factor out of the equation. To fans that is impossible. It is not going to happen. They wear their hearts on their sleeves and they look at it from an emotional point of view. I get that and I respect it. You're not going to get me to think that way. I have a unique perspective in Kiss." Read more here.
