KISS Icon Peter Criss Surprises John 5 at Rob Zombie Concert in Holmdel
Original KISS drummer Peter Criss surprised the audience attending Rob Zombie at the PNC Bank Arts Center leading the crowd in a birthday singalong for guitarist John 5 Sunday night (July 31).
“Maybe you know, maybe you don’t know, today is J5‘s birthday,” Zombie teased the crowd. “As you know, J5 is a really big KISS fan, so I thought to myself, ‘What can I get John 5 for his birthday that he doesn’t already have?’ I went out and got him an original Peter Criss… You don’t have this at home, J5, I don’t think.”
The “Catman” then came out on stage to thunderous applause.
“Hey, listen, it’s Johnny‘s birthday, so I wanna say I’d like you all to sing with me happy birthday to Johnny 5,” he said.
A visibly moved John 5 gave Criss a hug before the legendary rocker walked off.
