Eric on Alice:
Eric Singer : Of all the artists I've ever worked with, Alice is the one that asked me most frequently. I've done more shows with him than with Kiss. I think I have a very good relationship with him, as well professionally as personally. He's a terribly nice guy, almost never gets upset. Easy to deal with, easy to work with. He knows what he wants, but he allows everyone in the band to do their thing. On stage he wants me to be Eric Singer, a performer. Whenever I want to turn my drumsticks around, I can, and if I want to add some show, I can. He wants everyone in the band to feel good. What I really appreciate is that Alice keeps asking me, even when I was busy elsewhere, whenever he needs a drummer. So I never let him down. He's always been good to me and he deserves to be treated respectfully.
