Jéan "Boomer" Grenier (BOTTOMS UP, SCARAB, & formally of THE HOUNDS
OF HASSELVANDER with Joe Hasselvander of RAVEN) and Vinny Nault
(CLOSE RANGE) decided to record some KISS songs but for a purpose.
They both have dealt, and are still dealing with the devastating and
horrible disease of cancer in their families as well as everyone
that participated in this project. They wanted to do something that
could help make a difference no matter how big or small. The effort
is what counts...right? They decided that since the music of KISS
has helped them though their own lives and made an impact, maybe
they could help others with these classic songs that their rock
As the recording process continued the light bulb goes off. Two of
the most influential drummers in KISS have both dealt with cancer.
Unfortunately Eric Carr lost his battle but Peter Criss has since
won. They decided to make the first CD with all classic renditions
of classic KISS songs and as tribute to a legend who fights for a
cure and continues to draw awareness to this disease. Mr. Peter
Peter has been extremely instrumental in their, and all the
musicians on this CD's music careers. More importantly and
inspiration to never give up and always fight. Wether it be for a
small life accomplishment, a dream, or cure of a disease to continue
Peter has expressed all of this openly and publicly through his
voice and his music.
They all wish Peter and all those who battle against this dreaded
disease continued success in their fight.
To all of those (KISS fans or not) that have been affected by
someone that continues the battle against cancer or for those that
have passed.... This CD is for you!
Please consider helping with the cause to raise money for cancer
research and hopefully a cure. 100% of the proceeds of this CD will
be donated to a worthy cancer foundation in the name of THE KISS
ARMY or to individuals directly!! All the artists on this effort
thank you for your support and hope you enjoy what is on the CD, and
the versions of their favorite songs. Hopefully some of them will be
your favorites as well.
Again, 100% of the sales of this CD will go to help cancer victims
and their families in their battle against this horrible disease
everyone knows to well. We all know or have been directly affected
by a cancer story, a friend or family member who are fighting or
that have been taken from us. We believe in strength in numbers, and
that can help make this CD and project a success to help the cause.
Please join us and spread the word to KISS fans and music fans
everywhere. We all know KISS fans are the greatest and loyal fans in
the world. Please help us to help others.
