Today December 20, 2011, Peter Criss, the original drummer for rock band KISS, celebrates his 66th birthday!

The original wearer of the “˜Catman’ make-up, Criss was one of the founding members of the band. He had three spells with KISS playing on their revered 1970s albums including KISS, Hotter Than Hell, and Destroyer.

Criss was famous for his inventive drum solos at live shows and as well as drumming he also performed lead vocals on some of KISS’ biggest hits including “Beth” and “Black Diamond.”

In recent years Criss has battled male breast cancer and has talked a lot in interviews about raising awareness of this issue. Thankfully in 2008 he beat the disease and is now in good health.

Happy Birthday, Peter Criss, from all of us at Geeks of Doom!
