KISS may be about to wrap up their End Of The Road tour but it looks like drummer Eric Singer already has another thing in mind to keep him busy and away from the spotlight.
Last week, Singer was sworn in as an Honorary Corporal of the Wharton Police Department in Texas ahead of KISS’ show. And of course he showed up in full stage costume and his signature black and white “catman” makeup. He wore his flashy ensemble during the ceremony with Chief Terry David Lynch as Singer received “a formal letter from the Chief, and a custom shadow box bearing the department’s insignia for presentation purposes.” Chief Lynch even wore a KISS t-shirt.
The department posted this announcement on Facebook. Part of the letter said, “On behalf of Chief Terry David Lynch, and the men and women of the Wharton Police Department, we appoint you to the rank of Honorary Corporal with our department, in grateful acknowledgement of the honor and respect you show all of America’s dedicated law enforcement heroes and their families.
The Corporal badge presented to you today has been selflessly worn by many within our department and today, it begins a new chapter with you. We ask that you display it proudly as it represents our commitment to protect those who call on us in times of danger, and in remembrance of the nearly 24,000 officers who have paid the ultimate sacrifice since 1791..”
