On November 25, 1991, I got a call from a friend telling me that Eric Carr, KISS' drummer, had just died. I was blown away. Flipping on MTV, my fears were confirmed. Dead at 41 years old... this really sucked. I made up my mind that moment that if the funeral was anywhere in New York I was going to it.

The next day the New York Daily News reported Eric's death and info on where the funeral would be held. It would be in Middletown, NY. My grandparents live in Newburgh, NY, which is only about 10 miles from Middletown.

So the day after Thanksgiving, I left for NY. I live in Lawrence, Massachusetts...

On Monday Night, November 25, 1991, an obituary came over the AP wire “Kiss Drummer Eric Carr has died of complications brought on by cancer. Carr joined Kiss in 1980 after the departure of original drummer Peter Criss, and recorded 8 albums with the band including last year’s ‘Hot in the Shade.’ Carr had suffered several setbacks since having a malignant tumor removed from his heart earlier this year. He was 41.”

I ended up reading this obituary 3 times to make sure it said what I thought it said. Eric Carr had passed away. You see, a few months back I had a chance to speak with Eric....

Returning the memories tonight
To the time you were mine
Still burning, holding on tight
One heart beat at a time...whoa
Ooh ooh let your hair down

Without your love is living a lie
But now I know we'll have it all tonight

Chorus
Somebody's waiting
Somebody's waiting for you
Somebody's waiting for your love
Someone to hold you
Somebody's burning for you
Someone to know you
Won't you let me show you?
Woohoo

We hold to love for all of our lives
And lonely fools they never survive
When it's all too much for you to go on
Just turn to me I'll be strong
You can believe in love
You can trust my heart...

Oh yeah! WOW!
Does it cut like a knife?
Heard it all before
Ain't nobody's fool
In the heat of the night
Just gotta know the score
Hungry on the outside
Burning on inside
Don't make me beg for more... yeah

Can't feel the sting
Can't feel the bite
Don't give a damn
When lightning strikes

You know you can't see a thing
When you're looking through the eyes of love
Tell me once again now
Can't feel a thing when you're looking through the
eyes of

Did you put up a fight?
Had it all figured out
Always thought you had to be tough
Being tough ain't enough
Take this heart of stone
Make it bleed tonight......

Street hustler comes up to me one day
And I'm walkin' down the street, mindin' my own business
Now he looks me up and he looks me down and says
"Hey man, what be this" and "What be that" and "Why you gotta look like that?"
Well I just looked at him, I kinda laughed, I said
Hey man, I am cool, I am the Breeze
Haven't you heard, there's a new revolution
Gotta spread the word - too much confusion

All hell's breakin' loose - hey hey have you read the news
All hell's breakin' loose - overloadin' 'n' blowin' my fuse
All hell's breakin' loose - day and night, baby, night and day
All hell's breakin'...

I just can't pretend no more
I keep runnin' out of lies
Lovin' you is killin' me inside

Every time I find the words to end it
Something in your eyes won't let it

Shandi, tonight must last us forever
Forever we say goodnight and go home
But you know me very well and I know you
You can't tell me goodnight

We been holding on so tight
We're afraid to let it go
Shake it loose, we both could use the ride

Here's another mess I got myself in
And when you touch me you ain't helpin'

Shandi, tonight must last us forever
Forever we say goodnight and go home
But you know me very well and I know you
You can't tell me goodnight
Say goodnight when we should say goodbye, oo yeah

Shandi, tonight must last us forever and ever
Forever we say goodnight and go home
Shandi, Shandi, tonight must last us forever

See her standing by the window
Smiling at me I know that she cares
In my mind I'm beside her
Fingers stroking her hair

Not tonight, not tomorrow
I want you now to be here by my side
All my questions you answer
When you're there with your arms open wide

Chorus
Oh Tiara
Girl I love you
You and me, we could conquer the world
Oh Tiara
Have I told you?
I'm in love with the child in you girl

Love, it shines like a diamond
Brighter than all the moon and the stars
Where it leads, we will follow
Love will guide us where ever we are

Chorus
Oh Tiara
Girl I love you
You and me, we could conquer the world
Oh Tiara
Have I told you?
I'm in love with the child in you girl

We can make every night last forever
Holding hands, beating hearts together
You're more precious than life to me girl

Chorus
Oh Tiara
Girl I love you
You and me we could conquer the world
Oh Tiara
Have I told you?
I'm in love with the child in you girl

Child in you girl
Tiara....

Lookin' for a thrill, you'll get it my way
Let's hit the highway, I'll take you down
Shoot out in the night, lookin' for action
The main attraction is back in town

Press the pedal to the metal, on your mark, set, go

Under the gun - do your living on the trigger
Under the gun - walk on the wire
Under the gun - when the stakes are gettin' bigger
Under the gun - take aim and fire

I don't need a reason to get crazy, I'm gettin' crazy and that's enough
Show me somethin' strange, I'll make it stranger
I swear that danger runs in my blood

Press the pedal to the metal, on your mark, set, go
When the...

Yeah, I'm down and out, but don't count me out
Listen here babe, gonna show you what it's all about
It's time for love, and you're welcome to it
It's a dirty job, but somebody's gotta do it
So here I am, do you want me now,
just show me where, and I'll show you how
I wanna know

[Chorus:]
No, no, no - don't say you won't if you will
No, no, no, no - don't say you've had your thrill
No, no, no - don't say you can't 'cause you can
No, no, no, no - baby don't say no, no, no

What's mine is mine, and yours is mine
Baby just sign on the dotted line
You got nine lives, like an alley cat
Just stick with me and I'll show you where it's at

You never lied, so take a bow,
that was then, babe, and this is now
I wanna know

[chorus]

Just when you thought it was s-s-safe
Gonna show you where, gonna show you how
Don't stop me now, got my foot in the door

Ooh, don't say no! Don't say no! No, no, no!

[chorus]

No, no, no, no

Never knew a love like this
Never knew a sweeter kiss
Never knew that look that's in your eyes
Baby, I can hardly wait
Now we're in the hands of fate
This is a love we can't disguise

I can't be dreaming
My mind is teeming
To think of heaven we'll explore
I try pretending
Tonight's not ending
It only makes me want you more

Chorus
Can you feel it?
How I want to love you
Can you feel it?
Oh oh oh
Can you feel it?
How I'm thinking of you
Can you feel it?

Girl, if we can talk all night
Maybe I'll explain this right
But I know words are not enough
I want to show to you
That every word is true
You...

Ten million stories in the city, ten million backs against the wall
Desperation's out tonight, you can cut it with a knife
Everybody wants to have it all
Well they tell you that the world is rough
But they never rocked it hard enough

[Chorus:]
Hey little Caesar, nobody messing with you
Hey little Caesar, go show 'em what you can do

Nobody said that it was pretty, you haven't got a penny or a prayer
You know it's gonna be a fight, if you wanna see your name in lights
Ain't nobody gives a damn out there
Well you got your guts, you got your pride
But you'll never let them see inside

[chorus]

[Spoken:]
Well you don't believe in the books and rules
'Cause you just believe in what you know is cool
Well they tell you that the world is rough
But they never rocked it hard enough - I can't hear you

They just don't understand, you gotta fight to be a man

[chorus]

Hey little Caesar, oh yeah, that's what it is
Hey little Caesar, yeah

Trouble with a capital "T"

All night long
I know you're parents think that we're all crazy
I'm not so sure they're wrong

Chorus
Nasty boys
You run away, well we'll play with your toys
Nasty boys
You know that boys will be nasty boys
Nasty boys *oh yeah*
Riding around in a red Rolls-Royce
Nasty boys
Nasty!

Got a head full of rock
Tonight some heads are gonna roll
We're a runaway train, a jet airplane
A locomotive out of controle
We'll be having a party in the back room
Nasty...
