LEGENDARY ROCK INTERVIEWS
Eric Singer is an amazing drummer who has had a long career that has finally led to a plum job taking over the drum throne for my favorite band KISS. Eric has been playing with the band in one capacity or another since doing Paul Stanley's solo tour back in '89. I have interviewed Paul and some of the other KISS guys before but had never gotten to Eric so this was a pleasure to talk to him and get the update on modern day KISStory as it happens. Read on....

(Thanks to Eric Singer, KISS Legends Alive and Amanda Baldwin for the photo help)

Q: Thanks for taking the time to talk Eric you have been a big part of some pretty important music memories for us dating back to seeing you up here touring even before KISS.

How are things shaping up for Kissology 4 and the follow up to Sonic Boom?

A: Tommy is handling the KISSology IV and is should be great as he knows KISS as well as anyone. We are on our way with the "new" record & will resume working on music after our summer tour. It sounds very strong and I think will surprise a lot of people !
