July 25, 2018
Former KISS drummer Peter Criss made an appearance during last night's (Tuesday, July 24) ROB ZOMBIE concert at PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, New Jersey.
Criss, who was watching the performance sidestage, was brought out to the front of the stage by ROB ZOMBIE's frontman and namesake, who cited the KISS co-founding member as an early inspiration to become a musician.
This is not the first time Criss was seen at a ROB ZOMBIE concert. Back in May 2014, Criss joined the shock-rocker on stage at 93.3 WMMR MMR*B*Q at Susquehanna Bank Center in Camden, New Jersey to perform a cover of the KISS classic "God Of Thunder".
Zombie told The Pulse Of Radio a while back that KISS was one of his biggest influences when he was young. "There was three things in the '70s when I was a little kid that were incredibly influential to me," he said. "You know, Alice Cooper, Elton John and KISS. As a kid, I was just crazy about all three of those."
In May 2006, Rob Zombie joined original KISS guitarist Ace Frehley and ex-GUNS N' ROSES axeman Gilby Clarke plus an all-star band consisting of Slash (guitar; GUNS N' ROSES),Tommy Lee (drums; MÖTLEY CRÜE),and Scott Ian (bass; ANTHRAX) to perform "God Of Thunder" as a tribute to KISS at the "VH1 Rock Honors" event.
ROB ZOMBIE and MARILYN MANSON kicked off their "Twins Of Evil: The Second Coming" tour on July 11 at Detroit's DTE Energy Music Theatre.
