Cunning Like a Fox - Eric Carr

by Patrick
(Niles Ohio)

Eric Carr

Eric Carr

Neil is most definitely the top drummer. But let's not forget the late great Eric Carr. He is, and will always be second only to Neil Peart.

When he took over for Peter Criss he brought a kick in the ass to the band Kiss. He made them a better, harder band.

The third best drummer is Eric Singer. Until he landed the gig in Kiss after the death of Eric Carr, he was a have sticks will travel drummer.

He had many bands vying for him. Badlands, Lord Ford, Alice Cooper, and Paul Stanley on his solo tour.
