After meeting, talking to and interviewing countless artists in the music industry, you can develope a pretty good gauge on who are the “salesmen,” the bullshitters and the ‘real deal’ straight-shooters in the scene. Longtime KISS drummer Eric Singer definitely falls in the latter category.
Although 2017 and 2018 hasn’t been an extremely active time for a KISS as a complete ‘band’ entity, Eric Singer always keeps himself busy. During some downtime from the KISS machine, Eric Singer checked in with Rock Music Star. While there’s no real KISS “news” to report, in a rare opportunity, Eric gave us a real candid chat, opening up about life, drums and the ultimate pursuit of happiness.
RockMusicStar: Eric, I have to say, one of the things I admire about you is that no matter what you have going on musically, you always seem to be keeping yourself busy. I imagine for some people, when they’re not on the road, it would be easy to just sit back and do nothing, but you always seem to be on the go.
Eric Singer: That’s all a person can do – if you think about it. I always tell people, just keep moving, keep swimming. In life, don’t just keep standing somewhere, keep moving. Because some kind of forward motion, or perpetual motion, keeps you from getting sedentary, and also sometimes from getting depressed.
