    I hate to perpetuate the off-topic-ness, but presumably a wadded bit of paper is better than no hearing protection at all.

    On-topic, I actually like Peter Criss. He does enough to serve the songs, and KISS had a lot of great songs.

    I just finished Paul Stanley's new autobiography. He basically calls Peter a troglodyte in it and said they had to teach him his drum parts as if he were a dog learning a new trick. I could not believe he was so negative towards Peter.

    I agree as well. His parts fit the music and he was a huge inspiration to a lot of current rock and metal drummers. He also seemed like a nice guy. I love some of the early KISS stuff but I've always thought Gene and Paul were egotistical jerks. To me, the personality in KISS always came from Peter and Ace and it makes me mad that Gene and Paul act like those guys don't matter.

    Love these pictures of Peter's 1970s kits by the way!

    Lot of great shows at the old Veterans Memorial Field House.

    I bought Peters book the day it came out. He did his fair share of blasting Gene and Paul. Honestly, those 2 appear to be pretty much pricks anyway.
    I'd like to read Aces' book as well.

    Peter got a lot of guys and gals my age to play the drums.

    As a big kiss fan, I can tell you that he probably only used about 5 of those drums.

    Though he did what he needed to in those early years !!
    I think Peter was out of his comfort zone with KISS...he was always more into jazz than rock.

    Decent drummer when in correct setting

    You think Peter would have been comfortable in a jazz setting? No way LOL! Peter's best contribution was his vocals; he absolutely kills it on black diamond!

    I started Paul's book, but I tired of hearing him whine about his birth defect. "WHAH! THE OTHER KIDS DON'T LIKE ME, WHAH"

    I have read Peter's, and I probably liked his the most, along with Ace's. Peter talking about growing up on the streets did get old though.

    I'm not sure if I want to read any of the books. Sometimes it's best not to know. Everything that has been said and done up to this point, paints a clear picture what KISS has been all about. I just assume take them for what they are, and have been to me, through out the years. I will always be a KISS fan.
