This month, it’s 14 years ago that KISS drummer Eric "The Fox" Carr passed away after losing his battle with cancer. Carr joined KISS back in 1980, after KISS had parted ways with original drummer Peter Criss. Carr recorded a number albums with KISS, including the very successful "Animalize" (1984), and toured all over the world with the band. He's always been a fan favorite and was very approachable during his many years with KISS. Just as KISS were starting to record the album that became "Revenge", however, Carr passed away on November 24, 1991 and was replaced by Eric Singer.In Eric Carr's memory, his family is releasing the official Eric Carr Bobblehead figures this month through the official Eric Carr web site, www.ericcarr.com. These exclusive, handmade figures have been manufactured by Bobblehead Heros, Inc. in a limited edition of 500 pieces. Each figure is 7" tall and is made of a sturdy resin and individually packaged. These one-of-a-kind bobbleheads are hand-painted and numbered. In other Eric Carr news, the November issue of KISS Kollector magazine — which will be out in a few weeks — will include an annual memorial tribute to Eric Carr, featuring never-before-seen Carr material as provided by his family.
