ERIC SINGER COVER STORY OF MAY MODERN DRUMMER
Just Being Himself
by Billy Amendola
For eighteen years, Kiss's drummer has helped his world-famous band stay in our hearts and on the radio by doing what he does best-being himself. In this special online extra from his May 2010 MD cover story, we begin by asking Eric about...The Band's Younger FansIn 2004 we did the Rock The Nation Tour, and then we didn't do any kind of full-length touring until last year in Europe, and that's where we really noticed the resurgence. All those shows did extremely well for us, and we noticed the age demographic had completely changed. All of a sudden there were a lot of young kids, and when we'd ask, "Hey, how do you know about Kiss?"-thinking that maybe their parents were Kiss fans-a lot of them said, "We found you on the Internet through YouTube"...or through Guitar Hero...or Rock Band. So it's the kids themselves discovering Kiss. And next thing you know, they go out and buy the CDs or videos. And then next thing you know, they want to come see the band live!
