Hi Peter,

Big fan of you and your music and you are also a big life inspiration of mine, thank you.

I just ordered your book and I can’t wait to read it!

I hope you’re keeping healthy during these tough times.

All the best from Wales.

Rock and Roll!

Dear Peter,

I hope this email finds you well, I'm writing to let you know how thankful that I am for you and your music.

Your music has helped me through some hard times recently and this makes me extremely appreciative of it and you as you are the one who brought it into the world!! All of the work that you did whilst in KISS and solo means so much to me. A particular favourite will always be "I Can't Stop The Rain" because the way that I have interpreted it has become a motto I use whenever I need help getting through tough times. Basically to me it means: I see the rain as anything difficult that heads my way that I must face and learn from, hence, I can't stop the rain because it is something that one shouldn't run from but should face. Keeping this in mind when I'm struggling really helps me get through difficulties and for this reason...you matter to me.

You're an extremely talented musician Peter and have touched the lives of so many people with your music and will continue to forever. Your 1978 solo album will always have a special place in my heart and I just wanted you to be aware of the impact that you have had on my life. I'm a younger KISS fan but I will carry your music with me throughout life.

I am glad that you are happily retired after a life of such legacy that will withstand for eternity. I really loved your drumming on your song with Richie Scarlet, it was powerful. You really do deserve everything that you've got. Keep rocking!

I will forever be indebted to you,

Mr. Criss,

My grandfather has introduce me (10 yr old) to his favorite band when he was just a kid, at the same age he heard of KISS. I just want to tell you that I think your the greatest drummer. My favorite song you sing is Tossin’ and Turnin’.

Thanks for taking your time to read this.

Vito P. - March 2021

Hi Peter,

I just wanted to say that I finished your book and I loved it. It was brutally honest and blunt. I have been a Kiss fan since 1976 and have seen the band about 15 times. I would never even think of seeing the band without you and Ace. Without both of you, it’s not Kiss.

I read Ace’s book as well but it seems as though yours was willing to go places his was not. I loved the fact that you ended the book by talking about your spirituality. I agree 1000% that you must “forgive to live”.

I was in Barclays Center to see you guys get inducted, and I was absolutely thrilled that the committee realized that the four of you are the proper , and only , members to induct.

Wanted to say thanks for all the great memories in concert. I was only 11 when my brother started taking me to Kiss concerts and they were always incredible.

God bless and I wish for you another “nine lives!”

All the best,

Vito P.

Not sure if you'll ever actually see this but thanks for the music and inspiration, CatMan.

I've told you this before but I was there in the crowd at Magic Mountain - my first Kiss concert. It meant everything to that 13 year old. Never lost that feeling from that night.

You made me pick up sticks. To this day 45 years later, still playing. Though only for myself these covid daze. That passion also landed me a job working at DW in the late '90's. I recall that time as some of the best years of my life. All the concert passes along with meeting some of my idols - including you. First was at the shop but the extended introduction was at the Ventura Theater. Hanging out backstage and just shooting the shit while on tour with Ace. That 13yo kid, who put on your make up annually for Halloween, I was beside myself. Thank you.

Later, watching the tiger kit go through production, was the production rehearsal at Dodger Stadium. Watching an entire concert with a handful of guests (okay, maybe 100), it was that same feeling at Magic Mountain.

So, again, thank you! I can't express enough the gratitude for what you've meant to me.

All the best,

Patrick D.

Brooklyn C. - February 2021

Hello! How are you? I hope you are doing well in these troubling times. My name is Brooklyn, and I’m 21 from Tennessee (nope not from Brooklyn like everyone asks haha)

I just wanted to reach out and say thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the wonderful music you’ve created throughout the years. It changed my life forever. You have always been, and always will be, my favorite drummer of all time. I really wish I could’ve seen a show with you in it live at least once, but hey, YouTube will do :)

I also read your book, and I just wanted to say that on top of you having a very wild and interesting life, you’re a very brave and fierce fighter too! I really admire that and even inspires me to persevere throughout my own struggles in life. All in all you’re one of a kind in all the best ways.

I hope this message finds you well. I’m sure you get bombarded with emails. But if you happen to stumble upon mine I hope it makes you smile :)

God bless,

Brooklyn C.

Mr. Criss,

Hello! Thank you for being the inspiration for my drumming career for that began forty four years ago when I was thirteen seeing you in KISS.

Today on your seventy fifth birthday, I had the joy of playing drums with with two sons and daughter on keyboards in our church Christmas Services.

This beautiful event in my life honoring the Lord on your birthday is very special because of you.

Continue living strong and living long!

God bless you,

Pastor Brian J.

Marla L . - January 2021

Hey Peter,

I've been a fan since I was a little boy.

This is the first time I ever tried to contact you, but you inspired me to become a drummer. I could play a trap set at the age of 5. Oh and by the way Happy Birthday. I know you don't have a lot of time, but I hope this reaches you well.

God bless.
