There was a rumor on Sunday that KISS drummer Eric Singer was rushed to the hospital on Sunday after a show with blood clots, with fans worried that he may be near death. KISS have shot down that false report with a new Instagram post.
“HOAX! Eric Singer is absolutely fine and there is no truth to any fake health reports. There is no stopping us and we will take down Montreal tomorrow night!”
Tommy Thayer discussed replacing Ace Frehley in a new Guitar World interview.
The guitarist is also sympathetic — to a point, at least — toward the rigid stance some longtime fans have about seeing anyone but Frehley wearing the iconic Spaceman makeup. “I’ve been a fan for longer than probably most of these people, so I understand,” he says. “But you can’t expect things to be exactly how they were 40 years ago. That’s a fantasy. So I don’t let it bother me. I’m comfortable and confident with where I am and what I do.”
What’s he’s doing right now, of course, is helping Kiss celebrate a four-decade-plus rock ‘n’ roll legacy.
“This is 45 years of a phenomenon, really,” Thayer says. “And I’m just honored to be a part of it.” And he promises that, with the End of the Road tour, “we’re going to do it bigger and better than we ever have. Kiss aims to go out with a huge bang — figuratively and literally.”
