KISSTORY – Which KISS Drummer Is Your Favorite Of All-Time?

KISS – Alright, this question is not the easiest for me to answer! If I’m to choose who my favorite KISS drummer is of “All-Time” then it’s Peter Criss. Done! I grew up with Peter Criss being the drummer for KISS. I also cannot get enough of 70’s KISS, which would be my choice for “favorite era” of this enormously legendary band. With that said, I have immensely appreciated each drummer’s amazing contributions to KISSTORY. Now it’s your time to answer! Metal be thy name.

  1. First off, great blog! And second, I think Eric Carr edges it for me although there’s not much in it. Love Peter Criss and I think he’s actually really under-rated. I guess it’s just that the Eric Carr lineup is the one that got me into the band in the first place and the Creatures/Lick It Up era is my personal favourite. His drum solo on the Animalize Live Uncensored VHS is etched into my DNA too! Kudos for including Anton Fig in there too.. be interesting to see how many votes he gets..

      Thank you for the kind Metal words. The 70’s era is my favorite KISS era, yet, funny thing is, “Creatures Of The Night” is (usually) my favorite KISS album! LOL… my favorite KISS album does change from time to time.

      “Unmasked” psyches-me-out and I’m not bashful to admit it! Plus, “Dynasty” does ROCK… ignoring Anton Fig would be a Metal crime on my part!

      I’ve checked out your blog and I dig what I’ve read thus far… excellent. \m/\m/

      • Thanks for checking out my blog and the kind words, much appreciated! I know what you mean about your favourite album changing.. I love Unmasked and Dynasty too. Dynasty gets unfairly written off as the “Disco album” but it totally ROCKS! Every KISS album is a gem.. even The Elder! \m/\m/

  2. Had to be Peter! Plus, he comes across as such a lovely guy on the Kiss Symphony DVD. by the way stone, KISS have my utmost respect for what they’re doing this summer in the UK:

    • Metal Odyssey Says:

      Thanks for the link and incredibly kool KISS news! Yes Kev, without a doubt, KISS is a band that has “given back” and patriotic to the highest degree!

      KISS leads by example, don’t they? I am grateful for our U.S. troops and equally grateful for the Allied Forces & allies… Long Live the UK and rest of Europe!

    Peter Criss did Beth? Or am I mistaken. I am so behind when it comes to Kiss. I got to get caught up.

    • Metal Odyssey Says:

      Yes, Peter Criss co-wrote and sung “Beth”… it’s on “Destroyer” from 1976. A KISS album MUST own! \m/

      • atothewr Says:

        I’ve got a couple of kiss albums in mind to buy. Thanks for the tips.

        My buddies and I have been doing something called audible extacy podcasts where we talk mostly metal.
        I have a link to it in my blog.

        Once we get the bugs out we might be looking for some guests to join us. Would you be up for it?

        Keep metal alive. New Maiden tour starts next week. I can’t wait for Charlotte.

        • Metal Odyssey Says:

          Keep me up to date on your podcasts and we’ll “play it by ear”. I thank you and appreciate the invite! I hope to catch some live music this Summer… make sure to “tell all” about the Maiden show you see! \m/\m/

    • If every band has a ‘Sergeant Pepper’ then ‘Destroyer’ is Kiss’

      • atothewr Says:

        Every band worth its salt has at least one album like that and some maybe two – Metallica has Puppets and the Black album. I guess my first Kiss album should be Destroyer then.

        • Metal Odyssey Says:

          My Metallica “one-two punch” is: “Ride The Lightning” and “Master Of Puppets”. šŸ™‚

          “The Black Album” was excellent for ending a profound era of Metallica (album) dominance though.

          • atothewr Says:

            That’s a good one and hard to argue with.

            I was thinking – Puppets was the height of their thrash days and Black the height of their new phase. Two career changing albums. Doesn’t happen often.

            • Metal Odyssey Says:

              Good point. Now, if they could just make a studio album that continues their “Beyond Magnetic” EP momentum… raw, lean & mean… and (gulp) old school!

            • atothewr Says:

              Totally agree on that one.

      • Metal Odyssey Says:

        Right on Kev! “Destroyer” is for all Metal intents and purposes… a greatest hits album! šŸ™‚ \m/
