drummer of the legendary rock band KISS. Throughout his years with
KISS, Eric's characters took shape and matured into an adorable
cartoon series, with each one having their own special features and
unique personalities. Eric had a vision for The Rockheads™ and
attempted to pursue that vision with the aid of Gene Simmons and
In 1987, Hanna Barbera Corporation and Landmark Entertainment showed
a sincere interest in marketing The Rockheads™, recognizing that the
fun, rock n' roll theme would be appealing to many different age
groups. However, because of Eric's untimely death in 1991, he was
unable to bring his project to fruition.

: KISS To Release
New Studio Album This Year
Legendary rockers KISS are planning on entering the studio in March
to begin recording their new studio album for a late 2011 release.
During an interview with BackstageAxxess.com that was conducted
during this year's NAMM (National Association Of Music Merchants)
show, KISS guitarist Tommy Thayer has confirmed that the legendary
rockers are heading back into the studio and plan to release a new
album before the end of the year. And he reveals it will follow much
the same format as 2009’s Sonic Boom which was a massive success on
both sides of the Atlantic.
In an interview with
BackstageAxxess.com Thayer says:
“The great news is that we are going in the studio again in the next
month or two. We are starting to work on writing some songs,
approach it just like we did with Sonic Boom and keep it all in the
band in terms of the writing, with no agenda besides writing great
rock n’ roll songs that we love, then rehearsing them before then
recording them. It really felt good to us so we’ll go the same way
The new record will be the bands 20th studio album and Thayer
reveals KISS co-leader Paul Stanley will produce it, after the
success he had at the helm on Sonic Boom He adds: “Paul knows more
what a KISS record should sound like than anybody, to be honest with
you, so he is going to lead the charge and produce it again and we
are all really excited about it.
“I know we are going to start working on it really soon in terms of
the writing and rehearsing and we’ll probably be in the studio by
March, so sometime this year I’m sure you’ll see a spanking new KISS
album that’s gonna kick some butt!”
