Every now and then I come across something on the internet that makes me say “Wow!” and it’s not always porn related. Recently I was perusing the facebook page of one of my many KISS friends when I found a photo album that contained pictures of KISS drummer Peter Criss, in costume and makeup, visiting the Pear Drum factory in Japan while the band was on tour there in 1977.
Some of these photos have shown up in the Music Life special magazines that were issued in Japan to commemorate KISS’ tours of the land of the rising sun but others were not published. I knew that these were very cool photos and wanted to share them with you, my fellow Decibel Geeks. The page that uploaded these photos was entitled KISS Elders and it appears they are based out of Germany from going by their information. Decibel Geek made attempts to contact the page owners but it appears they haven’t logged into facebook since the photos were uploaded. We give them full credit for these photos and claim no ownership. If anyone from KISS Elders has questions/concerns about the use of these photos please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
