At an exclusive press conference held in Melbourne yesterday, KISS founding member, Peter Criss, discussed his rock n roll journey, his cancer survival, and giving up rock n roll. Criss spoke about surviving cancer and wanting to educate men about breast cancer, “Yes, men can get breast cancer too“, and help save even one life. He said, at the age of 71 he was ready to give up performing. Criss was joined on stage by longtime guitarist and friend, Mike McLaughlin, and Australian rock band Sisters Doll. He praised the brothers in Sisters Doll with whom he had been practicing that day, and said how he was happy to be “passing the candle” to such “talented“, “good, Christian” boys who didn’t need to “do drugs” to have a good time and play rock n roll.
