Kiss Army, We Have Lost a Soldier
12/5/2016

I am very deeply saddened by the loss of John Morris, a Kiss fan through and through.  He was an absolute pleasure to be around and his love and respect for me was overwhelming.  He loved Kiss and we loved him.  It is a great loss for his family, friends, and the Kiss Army. We will miss you and we thank you for the love and respect you gave all of us.

God bless,

Peter Criss

Happy Birthday Gigi Criss!
Nov. 9, 2016

Gigi and I have been together for a long time, through many ups and downs.  She would say that's life.  She looks at life as a gift every day.  We  both love Jesus.  She is a giver, not a taker if you really know her.  Many of you fans have met her over the years and know how giving she is.  I am so blessed to have her as my wife.  She gives me hope.  She has always stood strong for me.  She is the love of my life.  Happy Birthday.

Forever and always,

Peter

Happy Birthday, Gigi.  Have a wonderful day!
Love from everyone at PeterCriss.net

Glenn Frey
1948-2016

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
1947-2016

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
