      The drummer for the glam-rock band KISS from its inception in 1973 until his departure in 1980, Peter Criss provided the beat for the group's successful run on the charts throughout the 1970s, as well as one of its biggest hits, the ballad "Beth." Criss' simple but effective drumming and "Catman" image was an integral part of the group as it rose from obscurity to worldwide fame, but substance abuse put him at odds with leaders Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons, which led to his ousting - or escape, according to which source one heard - which coincided with KISS' fortunes plummeting in the 1980s. Criss labored in relative obscurity until 1996, when he rejoined the original lineup for a blockbuster world tour. However, his time in the spotlight was again short-lived, as contract squabbles led to his second departure in 2004. Despite the ups and downs of his career with KISS and as a solo artist, Criss's contributions to the group's biggest and best-loved hits ensured him a loyal fan base for nearly four decades.
