It was all about achieving Starr-dom: having seen The Beatles on The Ed Sullivan Show, seven-year-old Eric Carr (born Paul Caravello) got his first set of drums and began developing his musical skills. After playing in countless bands and working odd jobs, in 1980 fate led Carr to audition for Kiss. At the audition, he amply demonstrated both his musical talent and his humility as he asked for the band's autographs on the way out. Impressed, Kiss gave him the job as their new drummer... and the chance to finally live out his dreams. As a member of rock and roll's most successful group for eleven years, Carr won acclaim from critics the world over and the hearts of millions of fans with his "Fox" makeup character and dynamic musicianship on nine albums and seven major tours. His star shone even brighter when stories about his unusual accessibility began to circulate, adding a personal dimension to a larger-than-life image: Carr would routinely meet with fans, even visiting them in hospitals. Tragically, Carr's resolve was put to the test in 1991 when he was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. Though he fought a courageous battle against the disease, his life sadly, ended later that year. Carr was only 41. Today, Eric Carr is remembered as a superb musician-but more than that, as an unwaveringly positive human being who touched the lives of millions, not just with his must but with his heart. Inside the tale of the Fox chronicles the complete life and times of Eri Carr- gone but not forgotten. Included are candid remembrances by family and friends, private eight-millimeter films and video.
