Our sympathy and love go out to Bill Aucoin's family and friends. If not for Bill Aucoin there would not be a Rock group called Kiss today. He was the fifth Kiss, and always will be. I loved the man and will miss him deeply. See you in heaven Gui .
Love always,Peter Criss
Peter told the Associated Press, "He was the fifth KISS," said Criss, who had Aucoin serve as the best man at his second wedding.
"If it wasn't for Bill, there would be no KISS." "He was a genius," Criss added. "Anything you could do, he could do bigger."
