Great interview . Craig was on tv last night, and he is still a massive Kiss fan. A few preferences of his collection in the first few minutes of it.

He was at the Psycho Circus tour at Wembley too - he was there with his personal trainer who was a guy I know from up here, so I spent quite a while talking to them.

He came off like a nice guy, although one thing that sticks out is I remember him being one of those social smokers that suddenly starts trying to bum cigarettes off everybody within a ten-yard radius once he's got a few beers inside him :drunken:

He certainly did that night! I got the impression he maybe didn't smoke regularly, but when the mood took him there was no stopping...obviously it was pre-smoking ban, and quite a lot of people - mostly girls - recognised him and were happy to spot him one.

ETA - Just realised it was an old interview and he was actually talking about the Wembley '99 show...guess I was one of the animals he was partying with out on the floor lol

His copy of Alive II was displayed prominently in last night's special/interview, most notably during his description of 'the kiss'. Was that a visual aid? :D

That's funny I used to do the same thing. And all this time I was thinking that nobody noticed me doing that oops. Thanks for posting the interview but I found it to be fairly average.

On his instagram yesterday he says that his hit song "Mona" was inspired by "New York groove ". Even though it was a Bo Diddley song, the producer heard him jamming to "New York groove " and suggested he use the same rhythm/groove for "Mona".

Found not guilty on all charges.
Were the false-accusers criminally charged and tried, or at least sued?
