For me, 2014 was the year of KISS. I was lucky enough to meet all of the current and original members of the band, and I was in Brooklyn when Paul, Gene, Peter, and Ace were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. I also interviewed Paul Stanley and received one of his autographed signature guitars as part of a meet and greet. And I closed out the year with two Ace Frehley concerts and meet and greets, not to mention my seabound voyage on KISS Kruise IV, where the band and I were “Dressed to Kill.”
My biggest KISS highlight of this year so far? Interviewing KISS’ current – and best – drummer: Eric Singer. As you can see from the interview below, we covered a lot of ground. Having the opportunity to speak with my favorite drummer for an extended period of time was an absolute joy, and I hope you enjoy the conversation as much as I did.

Remember when you were a kid (or possibly an adult) and sometimes you would have 12-inch action figures of certain characters and 8-inch ones for others? What kid would be lucky enough to have a parent who could afford to drop a bunch of cash at once getting one of both at the same time? The predicament would leave you frustrated as to how to play with the toys together, especially if they were from the same franchise. Imagine pitting 8-inch Luke Skywalker against 12-inch Darth Vader. It just didn’t seem to be a fair fight, right?
