Felica's intro for Peter was very cool-Saying that "Beth" was one of her favorite ballads ever written. Felica is not only a Talented musican but a warm and kind person as well. The rest of the evenings performers were excellent too. Thanks so much to everyone who came out to sup port such a wonderful cause. Please visit the website for the Families of Freedom 2.

Happy Halloween !

In October 1976, KISS taped 'Paul Lynde's Halloween Special', performing DETROIT ROCK CITY, KING OF THE NIGHT TIME WORLD and BETH. Although the television program featured Margaret Hamilton, the Wicked Witch of the West from The Wizard of OZ, i t was KISS's performance that single-handedly earned the show's over the top ratings. Playing off the late comedian's corny jokes, it was the first time the entire group had an opportunity to act out their characters together on a television screen. photo by Barry Levine

I had a great time with the boys in Australia. When I got off my 22 hour plane ride, it was wonderful to see my Australian fans at the airport to greet me. They made me feel great!!! The press conference was great too - I was taken aback. It's been two years and I wasn't expecting so much press. It was really cool to see part of the orchestra in KISS makeup too. I even got a chance to meet one of my favorite movie stars, Sir Anthony Hopkins, WOW! We did 'The Rove Show' TV program with him.I also did an Interview for Australia Drummer Magazine and I will be on the cover! Check it out. _x000d_ It's nice to be overwhelmed after all these years I've been doing this. I love my fans, Gene and Paul, and I had a great time.This wi ll be one to remember. 60 piece orchestra - WOW. I am looking forward to this milestone, I hope you are too.

70's Press Shot

This shot, from Peter's archive, was taken in 1978 during the LOVE GUN tour. It was part of the promotional press kit for Peter's version of the famous solo album releases. Peter says this is one of his all time favortie photos. He also menti ons that it took him a while to get comfortable working with this 800 pound panther. The trainer said that this particular cat had been known to lash out at anyone who didn't "respect" it. But the cat and the Catman hit it off, and the resulti ng photo has gone down in KISStory as one of the most memorable ever.
