Last ‘Kiss’ good­bye

New York Post - - NEWS -

KISS drum­mer Peter Criss per­formed his last show in the US be­fore re­tire­ment on Satur­day, break­ing down on­stage at the Cut­ting Room as the crowd cheered. In a farewell ad­dress he even praised his for­mer band­mates af­ter years of rock ’n’ roll feud­ing. When the group was in­ducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2014, they wound up not play­ing at all. But on Satur­day, “[Criss] said [that] de­spite ev­ery­thing, he still loves his for­mer band­mates and holds no an­i­mos­ity to­ward them be­cause it isn’t healthy,” said a spy. “He thanked ev­ery­one for their end­less sup­port.” Criss mixed solo tunes with Kiss hits such as “Strut­ter” and his sig­na­ture, “Beth,” but closed with a clas­sic by his men­tor, Gene Krupa.
