KISSKISSmuseum.net has somehow managed to get their hands on elements from the drum kit used by Eric Carr during the 1988 KISS Crazy Nights tour, and are making them available for sale online. As KISS fans (and metal fans) from the Eighties would recall, the chrome Chikara drum kit that Carr used: it was an iconic piece of the KISS stage set at the time.

Eric Carr was the drummer of KISS from 1980 to 1991, stepping in the place of original drummer Peter Criss. He took on the make-up persona of “The Fox” and was part of the band as they transitioned into their non-makeup year; help bring a heavier sound to the band, and performed on albums such as Creatures of the Night, Lick It Up, and Animalize. Carr died on November 24, 1991, after battling cancer for several months. He is always remembered fondly by fans around the world.

Part of Eric’s 1988 drum kit was once on display during the KISS Convention Tour in 1995. This is the first time it has ever been available for public purchase. And if that’s not enough, KISSmuseum.net also has Eric’s Porsche — also for sale from their website.

Eric CarrThis morning when I checked my Twitter feeds, I noticed that Freddie Mercury was trending — with people celebrating his life on the 19th anniversary of his death. The Queen frontman was most certainly a massive influence, but somebody else important passed away on that day 19 years ago that should also be remembered and honored: Eric Carr from KISS.

On November 24, 1991, KISS fans were shaken to discover that Eric Carr had passed away. The 41-year-old drummer had lost his battle with cancer, and the news shattered the hearts of KISS fans internationally. He had been a major influence on them all, and he is still missed to this day. He was one of the most adored members of the band, and one of the most memorable and talented drummers that emerged in the rock world during the 1980s.

Born in 1950 in Brooklyn, NY, Eric Carr joined the KISS in 1980 while they were still in make-up as “The Fox,” replacing drummer Peter Criss. He was instantaneously welcomed by the fans, and his drumming talents pushed KISS to be a more heavier and modern sounding band in their post-makeup era. Carr can be heard on KISS hits like “I Love It Loud,” “Lick It Up,” and “Heaven’s On Fire.”
