George Peter John Criscuola (born December 20, 1945), better known as Peter Criss, is an American musician and actor, best known as the co-founder, original drummer, and occasional vocalist of hard rock band Kiss. Criss established the "Catman" character for his Kiss persona.
Of Italian and Irish descent, Criss is the oldest of the five children of Joseph and Loretta Criscuola; his father's family came from Scafati, Salerno, south-Italy. He grew up in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn, New York. He was a childhood friend of Jerry Nolan, who would later find success as the drummer for the New York Dolls.
The Timex Social Club was an American contemporary R&B group, formed in 1982 by students of Berkeley High School in Berkeley, California. The group is perhaps best known for its 1986 hit single, "Rumors" and for being major forerunners of the new jack swing movement.
In journalism, a human interest story is a feature story that discusses a person or people in an emotional way. It presents people and their problems, concerns, or achievements in a way that brings about interest, sympathy or motivation in the reader or viewer.
Human interest stories may be "the story behind the story" about an event, organization, or otherwise faceless historical happening, such as about the life of an individual soldier during wartime, an interview with a survivor of a natural disaster, a random act of kindness or profile of someone known for a career achievement.
