ESP - Eric Singer Project

Eric Singer Project, or ESP, is the side project of KISS drummer Eric Singer. A really good band with great musicians. 
The band features Eric Singer (KISS, Alice Cooper) Bruce Kulick (ex KISS), John Corabi (ex Mötley Crue) and Chuck Garric (Alice Cooper). All members sing, but most vocal duties are handled by Corabi and Garric. The band plays almost exclusively clubs and small venues, which is a shame because they are really good. On the other hand, that makes room for great intimate concerts with a varied set. The band mostly plays covers from the members previous/recent careers and solo efforts. Here's a sample of KISS covers that they just rip into pieces. Real heavy stuff, seriously cool! 

Keep an extra look at Eric Singer (drummer) and know that he is one of the best in the business. At least when it comes to adapting different styles, the man can play anything!!

KISS Kruise II Setlists

KISS is currently cruising the Caribbean with members of the KISS Army from around the world. The Kruise was sold out with some 2,200 people on board. The ship set off from Miami as the first gig of the Kruise took place - an unplugged sail-away set of some rare songs, mostly from fan requests. 

The setlist for the first gig:
Hard Luck Woman / Christine Sixteen / Got To Choose / Goin' Blind / Love Her All I Can / Nothin' To Lose / Take Me / Any Way You Want It / A Million To One (partial) / A World Without Heroes / Only You / Comin' Home / All Hell's Breakin' Loose (partial) / Every Time I Look At You / Strutter / Sure Know Something / C'mon And Love Me / Rock Bottom / Beth / Shandi / She / Do You Love Me / Mr Speed / Shout It Out Loud /

Second Day and the first full show in the ships theatre had quite a few songs from Monster in the setlist:
Psycho Circus / Shout It Out Loud / Hell Or Hallelujah / Wall Of Sound / Hotter Than Hell / All For The Love Of Rock & Roll / I Love It Loud / Outta This World / War Machine / Long Way Down / Detroit Rock City / Calling Dr Love / Love Gun / Black Diamond / Lick It Up / Christine Sixteen / Rock And Roll All Nite / Cold Gin / Got To Choose / Nothin' To Lose / Deuce /
This is all the KISS-show that fits in the ships theatre. 
Third Day had the second show in make-up with the setlist mixed up a bit, but pretty similar to the first night:
Take Me / Psycho Circus / Shout It Out Loud / Hell Or Hallelujah / Wall Of Sound / Do You Love Me / War Machine / All For The Love Of Rock & Roll / Makin' Love / I Stole Your Love / Outta This World / She / Hotter Than Hell / I Love It Loud / Long Way Down / Magic Touch (partial) / Detroit Rock City / Strutter / Calling Dr Love / Love Gun / Black Diamond / Lick It Up / C'mon And Love Me / Rock And Roll All Nite /
Up close in such an intimate venue sure is Kool…
I thought about getting myself a ticket, but the cabins in my price range was long gone… Seems I should have gone anyway, right…?! Well, maybe I'll get inducted into the KISS Navy next year, since Paul Stanley announced a third cruise next year…
