Peter Criss Joins Rob Zombie for Performance of KISS’ ‘God of Thunder’
A few days ago, Rob Zombie promised that KISS legend Peter Criss would be joining him onstage at their Camden, N.J., show on Saturday night (May 10), and that’s exactly what happened. The veteran stickman rocked the KISS classic ‘God of Thunder’ with Zombie and his band.
Just prior to the song’s performance, Zombie introduced Criss by saying, “Ladies and gentlemen, if you are anything like me, you were very disappointed a little while ago, because I tuned into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and I did not get to see my favorite drummer get behind the motherf—ing drums. So tonight, it is our great honor to bring to you the one and only Catman, Mr. Peter Criss.”
After exchanging a hug with Criss, Zombie then joked, “This might be a little awkward, I’m gonna sing [the KISS ballad] ‘Beth’ for everybody,” before the band ripped into ‘God of Thunder,’ with Criss and Zombie drummer Ginger Fish (sporting a Catman mask) both playing drums on the song.
