Criss’ last singer: Jason Ebs…
By Julian Gill
Jason Ebs was the final vocalist in Peter Criss’ solo band CRISS who spilt up following Peter rejoining KISS for the highly successful Reunion Tour. During his time with the CRISS Jason toured on the double-bill Bad Boys of KISS tours which saw CRISS and the ACE FREHLEY BAND team up throughout North America. Following Peter leaving the band, the remainder of the band would stay together for a while to work as SKOFF prior to moving off, individually, in new directions. The KissFAQ would like to thank Jason for graciously taking the time to answer my rather long Q&A, and approaching it both with humor and detail! Read more here
