Remembering Eric Carr on the 19th Anniversary of his Passing

Eric Carr
July 12, 1950
November 24, 1991
It's hard to believe it's been 19 years since Eric has passed away. I remember like it was yesterday, hanging out together on the 1990 Hot In The Shade tour, which was Eric's last tour with Kiss before becoming ill in the spring of the following year.
He was one of the coolest guys I think I've ever met in his position, a drummer in rock and rolls most famous band. Anyone that knew him would agree with me, he had the most incredible sense of humor, stammering from the very clean to the dirty, sometimes just telling a story will make you laugh hysterically. Eric's passions and dedication was always Kiss, his music and his fans. He loved his fans unconditionally, and they loved him back, and he knew it.
Eric's first show with Kiss was at the Palladium in New York City, July 25, 1980. His final live performance with Kiss was November 9, 1990 at Madison Square Garden.
Eric is interred in Cedar Hill Cemetery in the Hudson River Valley, New York. Eric's beloved mother Connie Caravello passed away earlier this year and is interred with Eric in the family crypt.
