Eric Singer is one of the most honest, straight forward interview subjects that one could have the pleasure of speaking to. Never shying away from any question, Singer tells it like it is, not sparing any  details. Being the drummer for KISS (on and off) for over 15 years, over the span of three decades, Eric knows what it takes to get the job  done, and has never lost the appreciation of being part of one of the biggest bands in the history of music. When RockMusicStar recently spoke with Eric Singer, he reflected on "The Tour" with Motley Crue, the  writing and recording process of "Monster" (Singer's fourth studio  record with KISS), the misconception people have about his approach to  drumming in KISS, and also responds to the comments Peter Criss made about him in Criss' autobiography, "Makeup to Breakup."

RockMusicStar: Could you tell us what "The Tour" was like for the band, and did it exceed your personal expectations?
Eric Singer: Well, it was a very successful tour, and for me, I think it was a great package. I can only speak for my own point of view, but I think most people would have to concede that it was a good pairing.  If I was a fan, I would want to see that tour. Even if I wasn't in KISS, I'm a  fan of both bands, I'd wanna see KISS and Motley Crue together. People had been saying for years that it would be a good package (to see happen again), and I think it turned out to be.  Of course, you're gonna have  people say, "Oh, I'd rather see KISS do their own show, or Motley Crue do their own show," because they want to see a band play longer. But for me, if I was going as a fan, to see each band play at my age now,  seeing each band play for 75-80 minutes, that would be just the right  amount for me. Just enough, without being too short or too long.

Motley Crue & KISS Wrap-Up THE Tour
KISS and Motley Crue, two of the greatest rock and roll bands of all time, have wrapped this summer’s biggest rock event, THE Tour, co-headlining 41 cities with nearly 500,000 fans in attendance over two months! Along the route, the two bands proudly gave back more than $450,000 to charities including Hiring Our Heroes, Aurora Victim's Relief Fund, Operation Homefront, Skylar Neil Foundation, Spondylitis Association of America and the Augusta Warrior Project.
"It's been an amazing kick ass summer for us and a serious blast to share the stage again with Kiss three decades after our first tour together. We feel grateful and fortunate to have been given the opportunity to support different charitable organizations throughout THE Tour who work so hard every day to provide relief and make life better for our fellow Americans," says Nikki Sixx (Motley Crue).
“It's a privilege to be in a position that enables us to give back to the community through various charities and also raise everyone's awareness of these worthy causes,” says Paul Stanley (KISS).
With combined album sales of almost 200 million, KISS and Motley Crue are more than just iconic; they remain today as the dominant powerhouses of rock music tallying 30+ chart-topping hits, countless sold out tours and awards and accolades from around the world. Known for their elaborate and spectacular stage shows, both bands present fans with the ultimate concert experience featuring the most impressive lighting and sound production ever, as well as their signature over-the-top pyrotechnics. This is the first time KISS and Motley Crue shared a stage since 1982.
These veterans of the music business are still at the height of their popularity, with KISS being the juggernaut of them all!  On October 9th KISS will release their 20th studio album, Monster, which features their chart topping single “Hell or Hallelujah”.  With 3,000 licensed merchandise products, including the KISS mini-golf course in Las Vegas and recently announced partnerships with Hello Kitty and Family Guy, KISS continues to rock generation after generation.  More information on KISS can be found on the band’s official website-
Motley Crue is the first rock band in history to have just completed an epic sold-out Las Vegas residency at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. The band is best known for continuing to reinvent not only their live show (with mind blowing elements such as Tommy Lee’s 360 drum roller coaster) and music (brand new song, “Sex”, was released earlier this spring), but remain on the cutting edge via innovative social media interaction.  Motley Crue’s New York Times bestselling book The Dirt is currently being adapted into a major motion picture. In February 2012, the band was featured in the award winning and one of the highest rated Super Bowl ads of all time for the KIA Optima. More information on Motley Crue can be found at the band’s official website,

The Tour- Motley Crue & KISS
Pearl artists, Tommy Lee and Eric Singer, bring the biggest tour of the year home to LA!
It’s not every day that one gets the chance to witness an event as astronomical as the current and ongoing Motley Crue and KISS joint excursion- “The Tour”. However, for those lucky fans that have the opportunity, and luck, to get tickets to one of the sold out stops of this momentous trek, they will witness an unprecedented live concert unlike any other. Recently, The Tour rolled through Los Angeles, where a sold out crowd of 18,000 were treated to an unforgettable live concert experience of historic proportions. Featuring 2 of rock’s most iconic bands, sharing the stage for 1 incredible night of unforgettable rock history, Motley Crue and KISS provided the heavy hitting, flame shooting, firework exploding, heart pounding, hard rock that has given each band their well deserved legendary status. Mixed in with countless hit songs and other fan favorites, the historical co-headliners each performed and provided an unforgettable live concert experience that will forever be ranked as one of the finest displays of Rock ever to be witnessed.

Shortly after the dust settled from the pandemonium that had taken place during Motley Crue’s set, a black curtain fell over the stage boldly displaying 4 letters which created an instant uproar throughout the amphitheater crowd- “KISS”. As the house lights dimmed, the KISS Army heard the voice and words that they had long waited for, the traditional and official announcement to KISS’s highly anticipated return to the stage: “You wanted the best; you got the best! The hottest band in the world- KISS!!”

As the booming announcement rung out, the curtain dropped, and KISS’s pyro-heavy set kicked off with a series of mass of explosions that sent the crowd into an immediate frenzy. As the band launched into their first of many hit songs of the night, the band mesmerized the packed house with their signature theatrics that awed and amazed the crowd from start to finish. Amidst the shooting flames and bursting fireworks sat/stood KISS drummer, and Pearl artist, Eric Singer, who continually entertained the crowd with his stellar drumming and endless supply of stick flips and tricks. Although it’s hard to top Tommy Lee and his 360 Rollercoaster Kit, Eric Singer, and his new “Mirror Ball” Masters MCX drum kit, did just that. A mass of mirrored beauty, Eric’s latest kit instilled the look and flash of KISS, complete with specific customizations specifically designed for Eric. Eric’s full setup is as follows:

Masters MCX: “The Mirror Ball Kit”

24x15- bass drum (x2)
8x7- rack tom
10x8- rack tom
12x8- rack tom
13x8.5- rack tom
14x14- floor tom
16x16- floor tom
18x16- floor tom
14x6.5- Sensitone Elite snare drum (steel)

The full tones of Eric’s Masters MCX “Mirror Ball kit” offer a distinct warmth and depth, in part to the 6-ply, all-maple shells. For added resonation and strength however, Eric installed a pair of Pearl’s 1.6mm Fat Tone Hoops to each drum on this kit, a low-mass rim with a hemmed-edge most commonly found on Pearl’s thin-shelled Reference Pure line.

September 12th 2012


By Michael Heaton, The Plain Dealer

With Kiss playing Blossom Music Center this week, we thought it would be a good time to catch up by phone with Euclid hometown hero and heavy-metal drummer Eric Singer. Singer, 54, has lived in Los Angeles for 30 years and has been a drummer for Kiss, on and off, for the last 21 years. He has also played with Alice Cooper, Lita Ford and on solo tours by Kiss' Paul Stanley.

Where are you now in the tour?

We played a sold-out show at the Minnesota State Fair last night. It's a 44-city tour. We just added Mexico City and Monterrey.

Where did you grow up in Cleveland?

Euclid. I graduated from Euclid High School in 1976.

When did you start playing music?

My dad was Johnny Singer. He had a society club band. They went from being a trio to a 15-piece band, depending on the gig. I started playing drums with him when I was 14. We played a lot of country clubs on the East Side. I was later in a band with Mike McGill that would become Beau Coup with the Amato brothers [Frank and Tommy] and Dennis Lewin.

Then you moved to Los Angeles?

In 1983 I moved out to the West Coast. The idea was to study music for a while, or take lessons. But within a year I was playing in Lita Ford's band. She was dating Tony Iommi from Black Sabbath and I got some gigs from him. I played with Gary Moore [Thin Lizzy], Brian May [Queen] and did 13 tours with Alice Cooper.

How did the Kiss thing happen?

I was hired for Paul Stanley's solo tour in 1989. I've been on and off with Kiss for 21 years now. For the last nine in a row.

How much of a pain is all the makeup?

Don't get me wrong. I'm not complaining. But being in this band is a lot of work. All the makeup and costumes can be cumbersome. Especially when you play outdoors in Phoenix when it's 115 degrees.

Did you grow up a Kiss fan?

I saw them open for the New York Dolls at the Allen Theatre in 1974. I still feel like a fan to this day. Sometimes I see a kid at a show in the front row and I think, that was me. I've been blessed. Retaining that feeling of being a fan keeps me passionate about doing this. You need to be passionate to do this.

Have you ever met [original Kiss drummer] Peter Kriss? Is it awkward?

We've met. He's fine. We don't socialize or anything. I realize that fans want their bands to stay together forever. But that's because they've never been in a band. Know how hard a relationship between two people can be? Imagine that with four or five people. Sometimes a band has to change to survive. Sometimes a guy has to leave a band as a survival tactic. Life happens. Things change. It's not a perfect world.

How do you stay healthy on the road and in the heavy-metal world?

I don't smoke or do drugs. I hardly drink. Maybe a glass of wine with dinner. I had one drink last night after the show. A vodka and soda on the rocks. I nursed it for an hour. Even that is rare for me. My way of staying healthy is getting rest and eating well. That's the key. I spend 22 hours of my day getting ready for the two hours onstage. I've never missed a show in my life.

KISS drummer Eric Singer tells Dallas to get ready for 'Monster' show

When it comes to rock 'n roll, nobody does it better than KISS. The band is still going strong 39 years after founding members Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons released their first self-titled album. They are presently touring with Motley Crue playing classic songs from their 19 album discography. A new track entitled "Hell or Hallelujah" is also among the tunes on the set list. It's a teaser of what's to come when their upcoming release, "Monster," comes out on October 16, 2012.

Eric Singer sits behind his drum throne pounding away through KISS tunes night after night. Just like his cat persona, he never shows any signs of fatigue as he constantly pounces on the drums set in front of him. Singer gives his all to the audience and has been since he started playing for the band in 1991.
KISS is heading down South to Dallas, TX on August 4 and Singer was quick to let fans know what to expect while remaining secretive about the details of the show. KISS likes to change things up with every tour. However, he doesn't want to spoil any surprises.

"That is the part that you need to see and hear with your own eyes and ears. This is a tour not to be missed, I can assure you," Singer responded when asked what fans can look forward to seeing and hearing this time around.

Every regional area and city has their own local flavor. Texas and Dallas, more precisely, are no different. What does KISS look forward to when coming back to the most prominent city in the American South?

"We love the Southern/Texas hospitality! We know that you do everything bigger in Texas and we have the show to match the saying," Singer stated.

One thing Dallas is known for is its grueling Summer heat. There've already been several 100+ degree days and it doesn't look like it will be letting up anytime soon. That won't slow down the Hottest Band in the World. Singer shares the mission of the make-up wearing and leather-clad rock warriors known as KISS.

"'Hotter than Hell' isn't just a KISS album or song title. The show must go on rain, shine, or heat! We will bring it no matter the weather."

KISS plays the Gexa Energy Pavilion on Saturday, August 4. The show starts at 7:00PM.

KISS' drummer and guitarist in KISS talk concerts, the band's farewell tour, and making the best album in years.

Saturday night Kiss was the last band on the final night of Kollen Sommerfestival. This was one of two concerts the band is doing in Europe this summer. Then, they're off touring the United States with Mötley Crüe. There are several reasons why Norway and London were the only stopovers in Europe.

"That's because you are special, we just had to play in Oslo," laughed Tommy Thayer. "No, it is a combination of several factors. Originally we were going to play at Sonisphere, but it was for some reason canceled. But then we had a partial event in London that were already planned, and we also got a surprise offer to play at this festival. So a lot was about the timing."

Fans who met up at Sommefestival did not hear the new single "Hell Or Hallelujah", which is the first track from the upcoming album, Monster, even though the single is being released next Monday.

"The main reason we came here was to make preparations for the upcoming single release in London, so we're going to play it when we get there. We can't play it until it is actually released on Monday," explained Eric Singer.

"There is some sense to that," Thayer added. "We don't want the new track's premiere to be from some cheap recording on YouTube."
Eric Singer and Tommy Thayer have different backgrounds for becoming a part of Kiss, where Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons are the only remaining original members. The two have had their lives turned on their heads after they were included in the traveling circus.

Eric Singer feels lucky that ended up in Kiss.

"Everything in life is to some extent influenced by it, but I feel very fortunate and lucky. I've been in the music industry for many years. I am 54 years old and I am sure that Tommy agrees with this -- we see a lot of friends that we started playing around the same time years ago, who are trying to do the same thing for a living, but never get the chance to play in a band. We have worked hard to get where we are today, but feel fortunate to have had this opportunity."

"Playing in Kiss, one of the world's most famous bands, feels in many ways like having found 'the Holy Grail,'" says Tommy. "But we are not here only because we have had good luck."

"We are here because we're successful, and we deserved it," Singer added. "It's easy for some people in the audience to say 'That's where I could be too", or "that's easy, I'm as good as him." It's easy to be a 'back seat driver' and believe that, but there is no way that anyone can do this. This is about so much more than the ability to play the notes. There is much more to being in a band and be a professional musician at this level."

- Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons have said that the chemistry in the band is very good, and that is also a big part of the reason why KISS made a new album two years ago that got so many good reviews.

For many years said they (Paul and Gene) that we weren't going to record some new music. But our tour in Europe in 2008 went so well. So when we came back, Paul and Gene said that 'this band is really amazing, so perhaps we should record a new album.' So it was actually pretty fast and out of the blue, "said Thayer.

-So you guys just did it?

-"Yes, they [Paul and Gene] decided it They are the people who make those decisions."

Eric Singer breaks in and tells of a saying he thinks is important in this context.

"I have a saying hanging on my fridge at home – I've had it there for many years. It is by John Lennon and says; 'Life is what happens while you're busy making other plans.' It is one of the very best quotes, and I try to always have it with me. For life is not always as you intended. And I think that also applies to Kiss. The band had a particular course, possibly on its way towards the end. But the chemistry and dynamic of the band changed and it caused another change. And that change created new music and creativity. Without the changes you would probably not have seen KISS turn around the way it has today," said Eric Singer.

- When Sonic Boom came two years ago, many people realized that Kiss still could make a good album. Many believe it's the best collection of songs the band has recorded since the late 70 's or early 80 's.

"Sonic Boom was in many ways a kind of experiment.We recorded an album together, and together they found out how it was going to work," explains Thayer. "The vision was to create a classic Kiss album, and we did, and I think we did well," he added, giving fans insight as to how the next album "Monster," is going to be.

"On this album we take it to a whole new level, and here I think you'll discover that we really have got wind under the wings. I think people are going to be surprised at what they hear."

New Eric Singer Interview
Eric Singer is one of the hardest working musicians in the world of rock music. From working with Alice Cooper, Brian May, and twenty years with KISS, Eric has made quite the name for himself. No matter how in-demand this incredible musician may be, he always takes time to talk to diehard KISS fans (like me) every chance he gets! Today, I am proud to present to you my chat with Eric Singer as we talked about his first album, Revenge, as well as KISS' new studio album, Monster, slated for release this fall! Enjoy!

Eric, I appreciate you taking time to talk to me today. I thought it would be cool to not only look at the past but into the future as well. First, let's go back to 1992....the year of Revenge. This was undoubtedly an exciting time to be a KISS fan: A heavier album and even a darker choice of wardrobe. The 1980's were clearly a thing of the past. My first question is what was it like entering the studio to work with Bob Ezrin? Being a fan of Alice Cooper and KISS in your teenage years plus working with these two bands had to make it very exciting for you?

ES:  Getting to record and work with Bob Ezrin was a high water mark for me. He is really great and fun as well as a genius or sorts. It was a very exciting time for me as I was influenced by KISS & Alice Cooper in my formative years for sure.

I've read stories from both Ace Frehley and Bruce Kulick that Ezrin could really crack the whip and take on the role of head coach when it came to working in the recording studio. Do you recall any of those experiences during the recording of Revenge?

KISS - 20 Years Of Revenge With Eric Singer; "I Was Getting The Opportunity To Play In KISS Now, But Under Really Bad Circumstances Because Eric Carr Passed Away”
Rock Hard
By Mitch Lafon

May 19th 2012 marked the 20th anniversary of the brilliant KISS Revenge album. has marked the passing of this landmark record with a series of interviews conducted over the last few weeks. Our first four parts focused on the lesser known heroes of the Revenge album as well as former KISS guitarist, Bruce Kulick. In this, our fifth and final installment, we focus our attention to current KISS drummer, Eric Singer. He first came to prominence with KISS as ‘the new guy’ on the Revenge album. caught up with the veteran drummer (who is gearing up to hit the road with the band on their The Tour with MÖTLEY CRÜE) for his comments on the album that started his career with the band. Tommy Thayer recently mentioned that he did background vocals on Revenge.

Eric Singer: “Yup. I was there when he did it. I did it with him and (I think) Jaime St. James and somebody else was there. I think Tommy has a co-write on one of the songs on the record. If I remember, when I did the record... I did the drum tracks in two sessions and then I went on tour with ALICE COOPER right away the next day - after I did the second batch of songs. When I came back months later (after the tour) they were doing overdubs and mixing... I wasn’t there when Bruce was doing lead solos and the vocals, but I was there when we did some background vocals and I remember us doing it. I remember me going in a recording a gong for the very end of ‘Unholy’. I recorded two different size gongs to try and get this ‘wall of sound’. The idea of me wanting to do the gong came from me being such a huge QUEEN fan and Queen geek... ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ - the last line ‘any way the winds blows’ and the big gong at the end. That’s where I got the idea. I always thought that was such a great effect. We actually did that on one of the songs on the new record, Monster, as well. The thing ends with a big gong. We love the production stuff and Queen is my favorite band, so I’m biased.” Let’s go back to the beginning of Revenge. You’d been on tour with Paul (doing his solo shows). You’d recorded the demos on the Hot In The Shade album (and it’s thought that some of your drum tracks ended up on the album). On Revenge, the spotlight is squarely on you because you’re replacing fan favorite, Eric Carr, who passed away...

Eric Singer talks Rock Hall KISS snub and Axl Rose controversy
A day before the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony, Powerline veteran scribe Carol Anne Szel had a chance to ask KISS drummer Eric Singer some serious Rock Hall questions: The long-lasting KISS snub and the recent Axl Rose controversy. Here is what Eric had to say about all of it:

Eric Singer: I don’t know Axl that well, but he should do what he wants. I don’t always agree with the choices he makes or how he goes about it. And I think a lot of the guys that are in a band with him, they’ll try to justify it or they’ll say whatever. Because the bottom line is they don’t want to lose their gig. And they’ll lose their gig probably if they really say what they feel. But I think that he has a right to do whatever he wants. And in some ways, honestly, I kind of think, ‘You know something, that’s pretty cool of Axl.’ I think it’s pretty cool that he’s not only thumbing his nose at them, but that he’s giving them the middle finger. I think it’s cool. It’s like ‘Who the fuck are you guys to dictate what should and what shouldn’t be?’ It’s almost, in a lot of ways, if you want to look at it from this point of view, he kind of has a voice for a lot of people who think the whole thing is kind of a joke.

Ronnie Montrose, Bay Area guitar legend, dies at 64

By Jim Harrington / Oakland Tribune

Ronnie Montrose, who reigned as one of the Bay Area's great guitar gods  for decades, died on Saturday after a lengthy battle with prostate  cancer. The Millbrae resident -- perhaps best known for leading Montrose, the band that introduced Sammy Hagar to rock fans in the early '70s -- was 64.

The news spread quickly once a posting was made on Montrose's website  ( on Saturday. The post provided few details about his death, saying that Montrose had "battled cancer and staved off old age for long enough," but it also provided some insight to the rock legend's mood in his final months.

"A few months ago, we held a surprise party for Ronnie Montrose's 64th birthday," the post read. "He gave an impromptu speech, and told us that after a long life, filled with joy and hardship, he didn't take any of  our love for granted."

Memorial plans have not yet been announced.

Born in San Francisco, Montrose grew up in Denver but returned to the  Bay Area, where he got his first big break in the music business, when Van Morrison hired the promising young gun to play on 1971's "Tupelo Honey" and 1972's "Saint Dominic's Preview." Both albums were recorded  in San Francisco and are considered among Morrison's finest efforts.

His reputation as an A-list sideman was further secured during stints  with such titans as Herbie Hancock and Boz Scaggs. He joined the Edgar  Winter Group for a brief spell in the early '70s -- basically just long enough to leave trademark percussive, blistering licks on classic rock staples "Frankenstein " and "Free Ride."

In 1973, Montrose formed his namesake band, which -- beyond serving as the first step on Hagar's stairway to stardom -- produced an incredible number of great rock songs. The band's eponymous debut is considered a stone-cold classic, having produced the FM radio staples "Bad Motor Scooter" and "Rock Candy." Hagar left the fold after

1974's "Paper Money," amid reports of tensions between the two burgeoning rock stars, and went on to great success as a solo artist and then later as a member of Van Halen. However, Montrose the band turned out two more studio albums before disbanding in 1976.

Two years later, Montrose formed his second best-known outfit, Gamma,  which enjoyed much acclaim from hard-rock fans but never managed better than modest sales. The guitarist later put out a number of instrumental  solo records that explored a variety of rock and jazz terrains, while continuing to stay involved in other projects. He also maintained a  rigorous touring schedule -- he performed two shows at Pleasanton's Firehouse Arts Center in November -- and, at the time of his death, had  upcoming dates set for Santa Cruz, Santa Clara and Santa Rosa.
