I had a blast going to see Rita and John 5 and his bandmates at the Starland Ballroom. I gave John my jacket. It's from 1976 when we did a short leg in Canada. Very rare item. He was so happy to have one of my old treasures from early Kiss. A big Thank You to his crew for taking good care of us.
What tragic and devastating news. My prayers are with the families, friends, and fans.

Neil Peart 1952-2020
It is so devastating to say these words... I am so deeply saddened by the death of one of my brother drummers and dear friend. Neil was a hero to all of us drummers. He was a great man and a great musician. My heart goes out to Alex and Geddy for their loss and all the family, friends, and fans . May he rest in peace and be met by the lord in heaven.

Eric Carr Collectors Coin
I'd like to help promote Eric Carr's coin and the designer, Ralph Asbury, to all the fans. Eric Carr was a sweetheart of a man and a great drummer. He would call me often in his years with KISS for guidance and he was so respectful. I really liked him and felt for him. He always gave his best!

UPDATE BACKSTAGE AUCTIONS
for the FANS and BUYERS
Thank you Backstage Auctions for removing for sale items 1562 and 1563 and the description and association of them belonging to me, Peter Criss, because they did not belong to me. There is only ONE Tiger Tooth 76-79 earring that exists and I own it. I informed them of this and the photo I posted proves it. This post is to confirm that Backstage Auctions, per our agreement, will not be selling these items using my name or the name of the band KISS as a description for these items. If these items are found to be sold by Backstage Auctions in any way, publicly or privately, with my name or the name of the band KISS associated with them, our agreement will be null and further action will be pursued. Thank you Backstage Auctions for cooperating with me on this and fixing your error so my KISS fans are aware that this has been resolved and that Backstage Auctions has respected my concerns.
KISS's original road manager, J.R. Smalling, has had a fund-raising campaign launched on his behalf. Smalling guided the fledgling KISS from 1974 through their breakthrough with ALIVE! and Destroyer, and is perhaps most remembered for being the man who literally invented perhaps the most famous concert introduction in rock: KISS's famous "You wanted the best..." intro. It is Smalling's voice, in fact, who begins the band's 1975 double-disc Alive!
Smalling was diagnosed with metastatic bone cancer in 2018. The outlook for that disease is dire with the average patient surviving anywhere from just six months to four years.
Fortunately, Smalling's oncologists have found an aggressive treatment plan that has halted the disease's progress in its tracks. The downside is that the medication and associated costs are crippling.
Hi Kiss fans and collectors. I see that BACKSTAGE AUCTIONS is claiming to have my 1976 earring “again" and this is NOT the earring. I have the earring and it is the ONLY ONE WORN BY ME in the photo shoots and stage. The description is false and the story of me having another one with grooves is false. This was told to Backstage Auctions when they sold it. That person who bought it should be aware of that. The owner of the auction was contacted as a courtesy before I posted this and he was asked to please remove my likeness associated to this earring and the description using my name to sell it being they are misleading to say the least to the buyers and the KISS fan base. He was not cooperative with my request so I am making it known if you buy this earring, who knows who’s it was but IT WAS NOT MINE and IT IS NOT MY 1976 era earring.
Today Gigi and I celebrate our 21st Wedding Anniversary. I love her more and more each year. I'm so, so blessed to have her as my wife and companion. Her wisdom, open heart, and love for the Lord is such a blessing in my life. I'm am so lucky to have her by my side. We have walked many paths together on our journey and I take comfort in knowing she always has my back and I have hers. Thank you to all the fans who have wished us a Happy Anniversary!!!
Happy Anniversary! Praise the Lord we have had 21 years married. What an incredible ride it has been. Amen! Thank you, Kiss Army, for all your well wishes and thank you for helping me through this amazing journey in KISS world. I have learned so much from those I have met and grown to love.
May God Bless you all,
Happy Birthday, Ace
Stay Well, Curly.
Have a happy and safe Easter Sunday with family, friends, and loved ones.
