Présentation de l'éditeur

'The Eric Carr Story' is the first-ever book to tell the life story of Kiss drummer Eric Carr. Comprised of all-new interviews, the book also doubles as a study of 1980's era Kiss. You'll find insight into all of Kiss' albums that featured Carr (from producers Bob Ezrin, Michael James Jackson, and Ron Nevison), as well as those closest to him (sister Loretta Caravello, girlfriend Carrie Stevens, Kiss guitarist Bruce Kulick), and music-related friends (Eddie Trunk, Dream Theater's Mike Portnoy, Anthrax's Charlie Benante). Also included is one of the last-ever interviews conducted with Kiss' original manager, Bill Aucoin, and for the first time ever, Kiss fans will be able to learn what the real story line to Kiss' controversial release '(Music From) The Elder' was all about (thanks to an explanation from Ezrin). Get ready to learn the true story about Eric's life, and a behind-the-scenes view of Kiss!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Detailed, but lacks certain information (3.9 Stars). 1 mai 2013

I'll admit it: the way that many people thirst for a full and comprehensive biography of Abraham Lincoln, I thirst for a full and comprehensive biography of Eric Carr.

I'm sure that I'm not the only person who feels this way, and for that; Long Island journalist Greg Prato has written a biographical book on the Fox of KISS. His book, The Eric Carr Story, is very refreshing when compared to The Tale of the Fox (which was very sentimental and beautiful, but still lacked certain details of the Fox's life). However...there's still a lot of information that Prato's book, just as Jack Edward Sawyers' documentary, lacks.

With all of this being said, below are the listed positives and negatives to Prato's The Eric Carr Story:


Interviewed by Prato are the people who knew Eric Carr the best: the Kulick brothers, Bob Ezrin, Bill Aucoin (this book contains one of the very last interviews Aucoin conducted before his death), Slaughter's Mark Slaughter and Blas Elias, Black N' Blue's Jaime St. James, Carr's girlfriend Carrie Stevens, and, among others, Carr's sister Loretta Caravello (for those of you who are wondering and/or don't know, Carr's real name was Paul Caravello). As the Kulick brothers (in what Prato calls his "history lessons" on KISS) expose many mistruths that have been confirmed elsewhere (such as Bruce ***only*** being called to play on the Animalize tour after Bob had turned Paul Stanley down), they also help us to see Carr's many frustrations and struggles within KISS. Other friends of Carr are there to share what they experienced with Carr firsthand in the very last days of Carr's life--most notably his most turbulent days in KISS. The stories are very sad--and also different. Fortunately enough, Carrie Stevens is there to make the confusion into clarity, and rightfully so: she was with Carr all the way in the very last days of his life (and, of course, his very last days in KISS) and saw everything that happened more than anyone else did (except maybe Carr's family). Ezrin has many kind words to say about Carr--which is admirable given Carr's upset about Ezrin directing KISS in the direction of a concept album--and Aucoin shares what Carr's "legal" position in KISS was from the very beginning to the very end (while Aucoin left the KISS management nine years before Carr passed away, he also revealed to Greg Prato that he and Carr kept in touch up until Carr's 1991 passing from heart cancer). And everyone--most notably the Kulick brothers, Carrie Stevens, and Jaime St. James--help us see Carr for who he was, warts and all; his insecurities, his most admirable qualities, and his most disappointing qualities as well.


Readers walk away from The Eric Carr Story having learned only a tidbit of information about Eric Carr's childhood, and hardly anything about Carr's life in the 60's and 70's local New York City music scene (the story from the 70's about the fire at Gulliver's night club in NYC has been around for years, and even aired back on CBS in 1974--Wikipedia). There are many, many stories that I've heard about Eric that are completely fascinating (some sad, some happy) that are missing from this book: Eric having to turn down Ace Frehley's offer to play on the Spaceman's Trouble Walkin' solo album because of, you guessed it...the opposition of Gene and Paul. Gene and Paul throwing Motley Crue off of the Creatures of the Night tour as a result of Nikki Sixx and Tommy Lee tag teaming Eric's girlfriend at the time (this was in Nikki's The Heroin Diaries memoir and, while it may seem out of place, Motley Crue and their first opening for KISS are in fact mentioned in here as part of Greg Prato's "history lesson" on KISS.) What Bruce Kulick posted on his website about how strong Eric was on the day that he shot the God Gave Rock and Roll to You II music video, wearing a cross shirt and feeling so strong that he could even drive Bruce around (keep in mind, he was battling cancer...) There's a great deal learned, but there's also a great deal missing. I know that this may not be Eric's autobiography (sadly, we will never see one), but for the best comprehensive biography on Eric, stories like these deserve a place in the official book on Eric.


The Eric Carr Story is worth buying for all that you ***will*** learn about Eric Carr, but the late Fox of KISS deserves a more comprehensive biography.

P.S. Wikipedia covers many of the things about Eric that I mentioned as missing from this book.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Not a biography of Eric Carr but good. 21 janvier 2013
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
From the title you would expect this book to be a biography of Eric Carr and it really isn't. What it really is is a collection of pieces of conversations with people who worked with the band or who were influenced by the band, or friends of the band that centers around the time when Eric joined the band in late '79-80 and up through KISS's non-make up history during the 80's, which is something a lot of the other KISS books do not focus on. It provides an interesting look at the band's business during the 80's hair metal scene but at times is hard to follow because like I stated it really isn't a biography but rather snippets of conversations with various people in a somewhat chronological order to make it all come together. It gets hard to follow because of that but still it is an interesting insight into that time in KISStory.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A great insight to a great person 26 novembre 2011
Par Fadingrockstar - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I purchased the book back in February of this year and just finished this morning. I kind of just read a bit here and a bit there as time permitted. However with the 20th anniversary of his passing I really wanted to finish the book. The book is a great read that gives you all sides of the story and how people felt about Eric, not only as a drummer but as a great person. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think about Eric Carr. I have been a KISS fan since 1976 and while I don't always agree with what Kiss has done, the one thing they got right was Peter Criss' replacement being Eric Carr! A big thanks to author Greg Prato for writing this book!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Kiss Klassic 10 juin 2011
Par Kris Fleischmann - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This book took me deep inside Eric Carr. I learned things about the fox that I could never have fully fathomed. Truth be told, I still prefer the original Kiss line-up the best, but Eric was, well, Eric. Truly though, I fully enjoyed this book from first letter to final period. As soon as I finished reading, I went back to square one. I will find it hard to ever forgive Gene and Paul for not agreeing to be interviewed for this, this, this wonderful book. To quote a Kiss lyric, after reading The Eric Carr Story, "I, believe in me." If you don't make this purchase, you're not a true member of the KIss Army.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Fitting Tribute to the Fox and a Must-Have for KISS Fans 8 janvier 2012
Par Justin Tedaldi, National Music Q&A Examiner - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Greg Prato knows his stuff about Eric Carr (he's been following him since he was eight). It's his dedication as a veteran journalist and lifelong music fan that makes his latest oral biography "The Eric Carr Story" a must-read.

The year-by-year chapter chronology traces all the highlights of Carr's life, both before KISS and then through every subsequent album and tour that followed. Besides the input from those close to the KISS camp at the time (including some former bandmembers' ex-wives--it's that thorough!) and the assorted hard rock heroes of the day, Prato also scored full cooperation from those closest personally to Carr, including his youngest sister Loretta and Eric's longtime girlfriend to the end, Carrie Stevens.

Speaking as a KISS fan, there was a lot I didn't know revealed in this book (far more than Ace Frehley's disappointing "No Regrets," which itself contains only about a page and a half's worth of ink on the Fox). I won't spoil the surprises here, but the final year of Carr's life is absolutely devastating, and even the most diehard KISS fans will be thrown by the numerous grievances that Eric harbored (privately) toward Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley.

"The Eric Carr Story" is an excellent companion piece to David Leaf and Ken Sharp's 2003 authorized biography of the band, "KISS: Behind the Mask - The Official Authorized Biography." It's a bull's-eye at fleshing out its subject as a wholly human being, from his highs as a jokester, songwriter and innovative drummer (one of the first arena acts to experiment with electronic pads and samples) to his less assured moments (crippling insecurities, a perfectionist work ethic and slavish devotion to his bosses in KISS, even right after chemotherapy). This was one of my favorite books of 2011, and I eagerly await the author's next chronicle of another legendary skinsman: Carmine Appice!
