[i]On Monday Night, November 25, 1991, an obituary came over the AP wire “Kiss ढंढोरची, ढोलकिया Eric Carr has died of complications brought on द्वारा cancer. Carr joined किस in 1980 after the departure of original ढंढोरची, ढोलकिया Peter Criss, and recorded 8 albums with the band including last year’s ‘Hot in the Shade.’ Carr had suffered several setbacks since having a malignant tumor removed from his दिल earlier this year. He was 41.”
I ended up पढ़ना this obituary 3 times to make sure it कहा what I thought it said. Eric Carr had passed away. आप see, a few months back I had a chance...
On November 25, 1991, I got a call from a friend telling me that Eric Carr, KISS' drummer, had just died. I was blown away. Flipping on MTV, my fears were confirmed. Dead at 41 years old... this really sucked. I made up my mind that moment that if the funeral was anywhere in New York I was going to it.
The अगला दिन the New York Daily News reported Eric's death and info on where the funeral would be held. It would be in Middletown, NY. My grandparents live in Newburgh, NY, which is only about 10 miles from Middletown.
Yeah, I'm down and out, but don't count me out Listen here babe, gonna दिखाना आप what it's all about It's time for love, and you're welcome to it It's a dirty job, but somebody's gotta do it So here I am, do आप want me now, just दिखाना me where, and I'll दिखाना आप how I wanna know
[Chorus:] No, no, no - don't say आप won't if आप will No, no, no, no - don't say you've had your thrill No, no, no - don't say आप can't 'cause आप can
Ten million stories in the city, ten million backs against the wall Desperation's out tonight, आप can cut it with a knife Everybody wants to have it all Well they tell आप that the world is rough But they never rocked it hard enough
[Chorus:] हे little Caesar, nobody messing with you हे little Caesar, go दिखाना 'em what आप can do
Nobody कहा that it was pretty, आप haven't got a penny या a prayer आप know it's gonna be a fight, if आप wanna see your name in lights
सड़क, स्ट्रीट hustler comes up to me one दिन And I'm walkin' down the street, mindin' my own business Now he looks me up and he looks me down and says "Hey man, what be this" and "What be that" and "Why आप gotta look like that?" Well I just looked at him, I kinda laughed, I कहा हे man, I am cool, I am the Breeze Haven't आप heard, there's a new revolution Gotta spread the word - too much confusion
All hell's breakin' loose - हे हे have आप read the news
Oh yeah! WOW! Does it cut like a knife? Heard it all before Ain't nobody's fool In the heat of the night Just gotta know the score Hungry on the outside Burning on inside Don't make me beg for more... yeah
Can't feel the sting Can't feel the bite Don't give a damn When lightning strikes
आप know आप can't see a thing When you're looking through the eyes of love Tell me once again now
