Just been a KISS Kasket question on Channel 4′s Big Fat Quiz. Noel Fielding told a great story about dressing up as Gene as a kid and going backstage into the dressing room! Available  on C4 catchup.

Incredibly it's 25 years since we lost the amazing Eric Carr. Hard to believe that so many years have passed, but Eric is still missed by many KISS fans and his legend holds strong to this day. Below is a great clip of him playing a solo & War Machine from Japan in 1988, RIP Eric.
