For those wondering what original KISS drummer Peter Criss has been up to lately, it turns out the “Catman” has been spending some time in the studio with guitarist John 5.
The former MARILYN MANSON and current ROB ZOMBIE guitarist revealed Peter’s involvement with the new album on Sirius XM’s “Trunk Nation With Eddie Trunk” on Wednesday (June 23), saying: “I have a new record coming out. It’s called ‘Sinner’, and it is a new JOHN 5 AND THE CREATURES record. It’s all new tracks. And this is something that’s really cool. Peter Criss is playing drums on the song ‘Georgia On My Mind’, which is the last song on the record. And I’m telling you… This guy… Barry Pointer, my producer, flew out to Peter’s house, set up a couple of mics. Now, this is a jazz type of song, and Peter is known for that jazz feel he has. I shit you not, he sat behind those drums, played two takes. Barry’s mouth was dropped open. Wait till you hear this. I mean, it was perfect.”
He continued: “It’s something you can’t teach, is this feel and this vibe. And he nailed it in two takes. And Barry was, like, ‘Well, what do we do now?’ It took him, like, literally probably eight minutes. And it was just perfect. He was, like, ‘There’s nothing else we can do. That was perfect.'”
No album release date has yet been set.
