WITH ERIC CARR!
On November 8, 1989, I had the pleasure of
an extensive phone interview with KISS
CARR, which became the cover story of 2 consecutive issues of
ROCKS newsletter in late 1989. Eric was fantastic to speak
with, as he was funny, endearing, open and honest as always. It
a real thrill to chat with him for that long, and an honor that I'm
to share with all of you.
In February 2005, Eric's sister Loretta
Caravello was kind enough to do an interview with KISSROCKS.net,
looking back on Eric's time with KISS as
well as answering some detailed questions about his former bands, his
experience with KISS, band relationships,
the KISS reunion
tour, conventions, fans, etc. Some truly great input from a great
Tons of Eric photos, including never-before-seen live photos throughout Eric's time with the hottest band in the world.
COMING SOON - HANDWRITTEN MESSAGES AND AUTOGRAPHS FROM ERIC
Everyone knows KISS put out 2 different series of trading cards in the 1970s (#1-132), but not everyone knows that in Australia in 1980, KISS released a revised version of Series 1 cards from 1978 (a.k.a. "Series 3 1980"), where all of the Peter Criss cards - with the exception of one - were replaced with brilliant colorful cards of new drummer Eric Carr. All group shots were changed to reflect the new line-up (thus the addition of Paul, Gene & Ace Dynasty/Unmasked-era photos), and a total of 18 new images were added/changed to the revised set (#1-66). Although all of the cards still read "Aucoin Mgmt. 1978" on the front and many '78 images were not changed, every single card in the set was updated to include a new 1980 group image w/Eric on the back of the cards to create a large puzzle. Because these were never released in the U.S., these cards are extremely difficult to find and have become one of the most sought-after collector's items bearing the mark of The Fox!
