On how he stayed in touch with KISS after that – “I became friends with Paul and Gene. Not necessarily immediatley but after a decent amount of time we just started hanging out as friends.”
On his memories of Eric Carr. – “He was a fun loving guy who had a great time and fit perfectly in the band. And when my brother finally joined the band he was a huge help getting him acclimated to the band.”
On releasing his first solo album in his 50 year career – “After completing 5 new songs I was gonna release an ep. Then we started mentioning these old songs that had never really been released. These are really finely crafted performances.”
