In this week's episode, we chat with Lydia Criss, author of the book, Sealed with a Kiss. Lydia is the first wife of Peter Criss, one of the founding members of KISS.
We had a great time chatting with Lydia about meeting Peter when he was Peter Criscuola back in Williamsburg. Lydia tells us about how their young love blossomed and what it was like being a part of the phenomenon that would become KISS.
Lydia tells us about how Peter's Cat Man makeup was inspired by their cat and what it was like supporting Peter while he pursued his dreams of rock and roll stardom . Lydia’s memoir is also like a wonderful scrapbook, documenting home photos of their life, relationship as well as the band’s evolving look. What was it like hanging around with Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley and Ace Frehley? It's all here!
We also discuss the part Lydia played in the creation of the song “Beth”, and what it was like to witness KISS become one of the biggest bands in the world. This is a story of young love, romance, excess, rock and roll and a woman finding her own place in the world in a life after KISS.
