    Default KISS tribute drummer here

    Ok, my first post in Drum Chat - be gentle with me

    I play for Dressed To Kill from the UK - the world's longest-running KISS tribute band (since 1990!) and I've been thumping away on a brand new set of DW's for the past year after saving up for what seems like an eternity!!

    They sound extraordinary and look beautiful in their Black Mirrar finish - so say my bandmates and various sound engineers too, thankfully!

    I'll put some pics up once I've sussed out how to!

    We're at www.dressedtokill.org.uk if you fancy a butchers!

    Cheers!

    Hey, Ian/Pete--we're always easy with the newbies...but once you become a member, watch out, mate!

    Seriously, welcome to what I daresay is the coolest collection of drummers in the world...and we're lookin' forward to those pics, vids and other surprises behind the make-up!

    (I have a buddy who at one time was probably the biggest KISS fan in the universe, so it's cool you've come on board so I can learn more about what makes their fans so intensely loyal!)

    Again, pull up a drummer's throne and join us!
    keep the beat goin' ... Don't keep it to yourself!

    Awesome! KISS was my favorite band as a kid, and Peter Criss was my big inspiration to become a drummer (along with Ringo).
    It looks like you guys have a lot of fun.
    Do you actually get out front and sing 'Beth'???

    Oh yes, I get out there roses in hand (usually!) and give 'Beth' a go - I worked for days on a decent backing track for it too!!

    To be fair, Peter Criss was a big influence to me, too - that solo on Alive! - whilst not technically stunning - just sounded so exciting to my young ears (I was 11 when I first heard it)

    He was a good jazzy player around '75-'76...then his technique seemed to change and he wasn't the same for me. Eric Carr was the first drummer I ever saw live (in 1983) and his solo was another moment that really made me want to be a drummer in a rock band. And that was before I saw Neil Peart...

    singer is awesome too. while i will always have love for peter, and carr was a tragity, eric singer is by far the best technical drummer kiss ever had IMO.

    You're right about Eric Singer technically...he did a great job on the 'Revenge' album too.

    I just loved Eric Carr's power - and 'Creatures Of the Night' is his finest hour...well, 42 minutes really!! :o)

    First concert I ever saw was KISS in 79 on the Dynasty tour. Never seen them again sad to say. Hard to top that show.

    Welcome Dant. I understand the tribute thing, one of the groups I play in is an Elton John Tribute band. It is a lot of fun to do because they are show bands in a concert format as opposed to a dance/club band. different style and different venues. It also pays much better than a club band and you play for an hour and a half as opposed to four hours.

    I had a Pearl Masters Custom in Emerald Green fade - played it for about 10 years and it got so battered and bruised through gigging!

    Still sounded great, though!
