Happy Thanksgiving!!!
11/24/2004

Last Year I was on the road for Thanksgiving with the Aerosmith/KISS tour. I missed my family and home but, what got me through it was you the fans.

Through the years you have been my second family. I just wanted to say from the heart, Happy Thanksgiving to you and your families.

Also, say a prayer for our loved ones in the war, they won't be home for Thanksgiving.

May God Bless them all and their families.

Love from,

Peter and Gigi and the Web staff of PeterCriss.net

Peter at CBGB's
10/12/2004

This past Sunday night (Oct/10) Peter, Myself and Gigi went into NYC to see one of their friends bands play at CBGB's.

The bands name is Sheer Terror.  The band consists of the following members, Paul Bearer-vocals, Chickie-bass Mark Neuman-guitar, Pat-drums.

They started back in the mid to late '80's in NYC. They put out a bunch of indie records, then got signed to MCA in '95. Soon after the band fell apart and after not speaking to each other for almost 9 years reformed for two sold out shows at CBGB's this past Saturday and Sunday nights.

Peter and Gigi are good friends with Mark Neuman the guitarist in the band.

Now I have seen shows at CBGB's before but, this place was packed, I mean you co uld not move but, the crowd was amazing, singing the songs, mosh pit...It was really very cool to see.

Also in attendance was Marky Ramone amongst others. Marky too is good friends with Mark and came out to show his support.

The band filme d both shows and will be editing them over the next few months for a future DVD release on Thorp records sometime in early '05.

Pictured above and to your right are Peter, Mark Neuman and Marky Ramone after the show.

Where has time gone?
9/30/2004

2 years, WOW!!! This site has gone thru a lot of ups and downs but, thanks to the fans and just cool people, We are stronger then ever!!!

We have always believed in telling you the truth.

It's a small price for the wonderful life you ha ve given me.

Remember, be who you are, follow your dreams, love God and family.

You are my superstars!!!

We thank you and God bless from PeterCriss.net.

In Memory of Sept/11/2001

Our hearts go out to all the families that were affected by this tragedy.

Peter Criss on KISS Books
4/6/2004

I had nothing to do with KISStory, except for my signature on the signature page. The contents were from past interviews which are mere press quotes and not all of them are true. I had nothing to do with KISS and Make-up and I definitely had nothing to do with Behind the Mask or any other book Gene and Paul put out.

The only thing I will authorize is Ace, Gene, Paul, Peter formed KISS.

Due to the fact I was under contract during the releases of these books, I wasn't able to discuss this matter at that time. The truth is important for my reputation.

Happy Birthday Eric Carr
7/12/2004

All our very best to Eric's family and friends and fans around the world!!!

God Bless

Peter and Jeff at the Families of Freedom Benefit
6/9/2004

This photo of Peter and your webmaster was taken back on Nov/20/2002 at the Families of Freedom benefit in NYC before Peter performed.

I have to say it was quite a thrill and an honor for me to be invited out on this night and to have the chance to see and hear Peter perform with the likes of Felica Collins, Dr.Gibbs, Scott Yahney and Dave Matos.

The night was truly memorable for me on a number of levels. I not only got the chance to see and hear Peter perform as well as Natalie Cole and other great musicians, but I also got the chance to meet Barbara Feldon (Agent 99) from the classic TV show Get Smart amongst others which was very cool.

I was also assigned the role of being Peter's personal assistant for the night and had to make sure he had his suit and whatever he needed backstage, and being such a huge fan of Peter's since I was a kid having that opportunity to work so closely with him was a dream come true for me.

To my fans...
4/6/2004

Some people love hearing themselves talk, Gene Simmons is one of them. I read online what he said to the Iowa and German press. Now let me tell you what's really important. I have never been so happy in my whole life. I can finally be free to b e an Artist again.

I surround myself with people who love me and respect me. My endearing and supporting wife Gigi, True friends, and a loving family, and always God. If not for him there would be nothing. These are things that make me a ric h man, Mr. Simmons.

I sang and drummed my heart out on the Aerosmith tour, FACT. The real fans know that, END OF STORY. And I also missed Ace on the tour.

I am in excellent health, wealthy and working on being wiser. I just wanted you fan s to know that. I won't even comment on what Mr. Simmons had to say, because it's NOT TRUE, and I don't need to justify his lies.

The original band is over. And as a founding member I am not shocked at Gene and Paul turning a legendary ban d into a cover act for just plain profit, How very sad.

But the crazy thing is? The fans will still follow because they are the real heart of KISS. I was proud to be a part of something that was once great.

God Bless and Good-bye to that p art of my life.

This year my mothers been gone 13 years, it seems like yesterday. She bestowed in me honor, loyalty, integrity and to find goodness in even the bad and to love God. She was my pal, mentor and just plain mom. If it wasn't for her belief in my ta lent I would not be who I am today. No one made Christmas better than my mom. I know your always looking over me. Happy Birthday Mom, I miss ya so much.

God Bless,

To the fans...
3/2/2004

I have been receiving thousands of fan mail as to what is going on with KISS. Today, my contract ran out. No one, again no one has called me, or my attorney about an extension for future touring. As a founding member I find this to be disrespect ful to me, and to the fans that have made us one of the biggest bands in the world. You will always get the truth from me, I have no reason to lie to the people that gave me such a wonderful life. And that’s the God’s honest truth.

God bless,

Peter Criss

P.S. This is the stuff that breaks my heart.
