KISS member becomes an honorary police corporal

Wearing his full Catman makeup and gear for the swearing-in ceremony on Monday, Eric Singer has become an Honorary Police Corporal in Texas.

Before KISS took the stage at Houston’s Toyota Center, the drummer visited the Wharton Police Department to accept the lifetime position.

A press release on their Facebook page states Singer is deserving due to “the honor and respect” he shows “all of America’s dedicated law enforcement heroes and their families.”

KISS wraps the North American leg of their End of the Road final tour on Saturday, before then heading to Australia, New Zealand, and Japan through December.
