Our Peter Criss Meet & Greet Experience!!!


When we heard the news. last november, that the legendary Catman Peter Criss would be the special guest at the LA KISS Expo this month, we knew we had to be there!


We bought our tickets at once and booked our flights, the only thing we have to do is wait till it's time to travel to Los Angeles.

We arrived in LA on Thursday januari 26th and as soon we picked up our rental car we started to explore the city, from Hollywood to Beverly Hills, from El Segundo to the Sunset Strip. We love Los Angeles!
On Friday it was time to finaly meet the original KISS drummer @ the Raleigh Studio's, where the Hotter Than Hell album cover was shoot!
We arrived around 2 PM at the studio's, after checked-in and received our laminates, we went into the Chaplin theather and waited for Peter Criss to arrive. Shortly after 2 PM Peter came in with his wife Gigi and a hugh applause started for him by the fans!
Peter was overwelmed by all this and we couldn't believe the Catman was in the building. Now it was time for the Q&A and Peter had so much cool stories to tell from back in the days and we love to hear them all. Also a special movie was been screened with all the highlights in Peter's carriere and there was also a section were famous drummers congrats him on how much influence Peter's drumming had on them as they were kids.
We had a great time during this special event!

After a small break it was time for the fans to meet Peter and around 4 PM it was our turn! First we got a special LA KISS Expo event poster, signed by Peter!
Then we entered the room and as soon Peter saw us he welcomed us and he said several times how much he appreciated it that we want to meet him, especially when he heard that we live in The Netherlands! He gave my lovely wife and me a big, warm, sincere hug and he kept huging us! I gave him a little present and he loved it and would keep it to his lucky charms.
Peter was so relaxed and took all the time for us, we spoke about his music and what it ment to us to finally meet him.

We brought some cool items with us to get signed by Peter, first we let our Wedding license sign and he was gratefull to do this on such a important document and looked who else had signed it! Then it was time to get our copy of his solo picture disc album form 1978 signed, finally we've our set of signed solo picture disc's from each KISS member complete now!
Also Peter signed our Let Me Rock You album, the first KISS album, the Criss special edition EP and our Alive! Peter Criss figure.

During signing all the items for us he and Gigi gave answers to our questions and when they heard we would see him on sunday for the LA KISS Landmark Tour they said you'll love it. Slowly our meet & greet came to a end, Peter found it so great that we came from The Netherlands, he couldn't believe it that we did that for him!

What can we say about meeting Peter? Nothing but good stuff to say about him and his wife Gigi. Both great people and so nice. Peter is a total sweetheart! A dream come true for us to finally meet him!!!

Here's a selection of our photo's, enjoy...
