When KISS Rocked Cadillac

KISS was on the cusp of superstardom when a small, conservative town in northern Michigan invited the band to visit. The rest is rock history.

It sounds like a Hollywood screenwriter's fantasy: a small-town high-school football team turns around a losing season, inspired by the music of wildly theatrical rock and rollers from New York. The team contacts the group with an unlikely ask: Would they consider visiting, so the town can say thanks? The band, on the cusp of superstardom, agrees — resulting in one of the most improbable, wholesome, heartwarming stories in rock history. But this was no movie: the year was 1975; the town was Cadillac, Michigan; and the band was KISS. Here, after unearthing never-seen photos from the event, FOTO celebrates an unrepeatable pop-culture moment, and speaks with a man who helped make it happen.

Eric Singer’s Revenge: Two Decades on with the Hottest Band in the World

Interview taken from the Official KISS magazine #2

By Keith Leroux and Jill Cataldo

For more than 20 years, Eric Singer has been the powerhouse behind the KISS drum kit. Eric’s dynamic drum style and prominent vocal abilities are both integral parts of KISS’ sound and stage presence. Here, Eric discusses his early years with KISS, life on tour, and, of course, his love of watches.

KISS: Today is April 23rd, and to the day, it’s the 26th anniversary of your first year in KISS. Tell us about your memories of joining the band in the early 90s.

Eric Singer: There was a lot of anticipation from fans, because after Eric Carr passed away, everyone wondered “What’s KISS going to do now? How will they deal with this new guy? The drummer’s got blonde hair!”  The bottom line is that in any area of life, anytime there’s change, there’s always apprehension – especially for KISS fans facing the prospect of their favorite band having a new member.

When I went in to rehearse with KISS, I had a lipstick-red drum kit. I’d had KISS drum heads made up that were chrome with a black logo and a red pinstripe around the logo. I thought it looked really cool, and I love details like that. Everyone came in to rehearse, and I said to Paul, “How do you like my kit?”

Paul said, “The logo’s wrong.”

I felt deflated – like the air went right out of a balloon. Paul then explained to me how the KISS letter S’s were supposed to look, as they’re slightly asymmetrical. I’ve since told people if you want to get a better perspective on this, take any KISS logo and turn it upside down. You’ll see how the bottoms of the two S’s go in different directions to emulate lightning bolts.
