R.I.P. – Eric Carr (1950-1991)

November 24, 1991 was the day that my world came crashing to a halt when the sad news of KISS drummer Eric Carr’s unexpected death flashed across MTV News. There was already sad news with Queen’s Freddie Mercury passing away the same day but this was a member of KISS…..my favorite band. I figured the band was over, how could they continue without Eric?

I always say that KISS regained some of their success because of Eric’s dedication, skill, and overall positive attitude and I always wanted to meet him. Ask any fan that met him and they will tell you that Eric Carr was one of the classiest musicians there ever was. He is still one of my favorite members of KISS and one of my favorite drummers. Rest in peace Eric, you are still missed very much…..
